    New York!

    November 5, 2017 in the United States

    Caught the train from Boston to NYC (hightlight was our giant cinnamon scrolls - we were the envy of the entire carriage). We arrived late afternoon and headed to Madison Square Garden (across the road from our hotel) for an NBL game - NY Knicks vs Indiana Pacers. Knicks came from behind to win 108-101! Very exciting 🏀 Apparently I am a mad sports fan now! Lauren would be proud.Read more

    Looking for Liz Lemon

    November 6, 2017 in the United States

    New York day 2 included 30 Rock (Tina Fey must have been at lunch), Radio City, the Guggenheim, and the Empire State Building at night. We went up at around 9pm and it was amazing. Despite a rainy cloudy day, it was so clear up there but absolutely freezing!

    July 11, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    USA!!! ❤️ Taking a bite of the Big Apple. Thanks to the London time difference we have been up at 4am- and it's kind of nice to be out and about before The City That Never Sleeps wakes up. Staying in Manhattan. Doing the usual tourist stuff: Staten Island Ferry to view the Statue of Liberty, saw the 9/11 Memorial (actually quite sobering), walked through Times Square, played in Central Park (aptly dubbed the NY Tree Museum by Buz), took a cab, took the subway, and getting in a good amount of steps on the Fitbit. Still so much to tick off the list! Leonard Cohen songs running through my head, and Buz has been playing Sinatra. Oh, and how could I forget: American shopping! 😁. After wearing the same clothes for 4 months it is a real treat to not only get new clothes, but to find pants that fit a vertically challenged person with an American butt! Even Buz, Zach, & Jesse found some new duds and I was a lucky lady to be surrounded by such handsome men at the deli last night!

    NYC was fun! I love big cities: interesting people watching and an endless to-do list. The boys prefer the country- something about dirty streets, weird smells, second-hand smoke, and crowds with many 'interesting' people. Still, we all enjoyed ourselves. We ticked a lot of the boxes in addition to those already mentioned- walking over Brooklyn Bridge, Museum of Natural History, Empire State Building, Flatiron Building, Grand Central Station... and of course we watched France win the World Cup. Highlight was the Museum of Natural History- wow! Dinosaur bones, African animal exhibit, so many hands-on science experiments and a cool movie about the Big Bang Theory.

    From Brooklyn to Boston

    July 2, 2017 in the United States

    1st train journey down, 4 more to go in our #jkrailing adventures across the USA. This first journey took us from New York Pennsylvania Station to Boston Back Bay on the North East Regional line. It took almost exactly 4 hours and was really beautiful especially as we were travelling in 'golden hour'. As I can only post one video and no pictures per 'footprint' I wanted to share our farewell to the NYC skyline.Read more

    Day 17, New York - Disembakation Day

    September 17, 2017 in the United States

    So today was the day we had to leave our floating luxury hotel after 15 fantastic days. It's been amazing. So we decided to be up early this morning to see us sail in to New York, alarm was set for 4.45am 😴 😴 It was still dark and still foggy but a lot warmer and well worth doing. We sailed right up by the Statue of Liberty, past Manhattan before finally docking on our berth in Brooklyn. The waters were as calm as anything. At 5am the decks were full of people doing the same thing.

    All the restaurants and buffets were open extra early this morning as they want the ship empty by 11am. As we were up and about early we decided one last meal downstairs in the restaurant rather than the buffet. It's great to be served and to say goodbye to some of the waiters we've got to know. A final cup of tea and a couple of Lemon Danish pastries at the back of the ship overlooking Brooklyn Bridge to the right and Manhattan to left, before picking our carry on luggage up and heading for Club Fusion to disembark 🙁.

    Once off the ship we were greeted with US immigration, always a pleasure (NOT) but to be fair it was quite painless this morning. By 9.30am we were in a taxi to our hotel, The Marriott in Chelsea, Manhattan. It's quite nice and extremely central, just 5 minutes to the Empire State Building and about a 20 minute walk to Times Square. Our trip took us over the Brooklyn Bridge and up through downtown Manhattan. Traffic was horrendous due to the UN Conference taking place all this week. We've just seen on the news that Donald has arrived Safely at Trump Towers !!

    As our room wasn't ready, we left our luggage with the concierge service and set of in to town, heading for Times Square. We stopped of at Macy's for some lunch along the way. The weather was very warm but very cloudy. We've done little more but walk around all day, 10 miles according to Fitbit. We had tea in Grand Central Station and had a wander in to The Grand Hyatt where we stayed last time.

    It's 9pm here now, still 24 degrees and we're just back at the hotel totally knackered. Although it was the last day on the ship, we've still got a couple of days here to enjoy, and it's a lot warmer - have I mentioned the weather at all over the last couple of weeks?

    So that's it from us tonight, more tomorrow.

  • Day6


    March 26, 2018 in the United States

    So this morning we got ourselves organized and the bags fit into the car!! Craig drove brilliantly again and the trip down seemed easier than the arrival drive. Once we got to Manhattan it was very busy but we did manage to get petrol, drop everyone off at the hotel and then drop off the car. The walk back was exciting and our Cambria Suites hotel is very central and all around us are pretty flower shops. It has turned out to be a lovely, sunny day but also very cool in the shade. We met for coffee/lunch and the Market Crate Café and then set off to find the New York pass place. Turns out the VR place is no longer valid so we walked on up to Times Square which was very exciting. We eventually found the spot near to the M&M Centre. Also purchased some caps – I had to get a child size and a cute one for William ☺ Macy’s was gorgeous with the flower display/show on currently.
    After a rest at home, which was very much needed, we walked out tonight and once again had a look at the Flat Iron building – very nice! We had a nice meal at the Belgian Beer Bar but my lemon chicken had no lemon in it!! Fun times with the family! We went up to Times square again – very bright to see lights at night time!

    9/11 Memorial and Carmine's with Aldo!

    March 29, 2018 in the United States

    Craig and I had breakfast in our room and then we all walked up to Madam Tussards to get our New York Pass bus tickets. Had to wait for ages for the bus because of a funeral of a firefighter, which had closed a number of blocks. Eventually, we made it downtown to the Wall Street area. It is very, very cold. We had a look at the Stock Exchange building and the BULL. There are always plenty of people taking photos there!! Next, we walked and found a coffee and muffin. Then we made it to the 9/11 Memorial which was absolutely spectacular. Loved seeing that. Too crowded to line up for the museum but seeing it was most worthwhile.
    More walking and eventually had lunch at another food hall type place. Very tasty sandwich!

    Getting back home took ages with the bus but we did see all along the east side. By then we were exhausted so Craig, Louise and I went to Macy’s, which was fun. Craig bought some lovely shirts (2) and also some white tee shirts. Macy’s gave us an extra 10% off on sale items. Back home for a needed rest. Tonight we took a limousine all the way out to Broadway and 90th (uptown) and… went to Carmine’s with Aldo and Helene. It was a huge Italian restaurant, with great atmosphere, pasta, salad and veal scallopini and great Cheesecake. The wine was great. It was hilarious because I believe they celebrated over 10 birthdays and every time we heard a very loud singing of Happy Birthday. Late home with taxis but a great finish to the day.
