    USA Tour - New York City, New York

    December 5 in the United States

    Woke up this morning feeling like an old man Hahahahaha I was shattered and my legs ached. However this was my last day in NYC so I wasn’t going to waste it! Shaun, Emma, Kev, Ted and Juliet all said I had to do the walk over the Brooklyn bridge into Manhattan. All I can say is awesome. It’s basically every photo or movie you’ve seen - that’s the view. I didn’t care it was cold. It was awesome.

    I went back on the ferry to Staten Island today so I could get some photos of the Statue of Liberty and the view of Manhattan. Staten Island is shit there’s not much there but it’s worth a walk around like.

    I met up with a loooong time friend today - we’ve known each other for around 20 years! So Carla messaged me on Instagram letting me know she was in NYC for the night. So we arranged to meet up for a beer or two.... turned into about 50.

    We met up around 5pm and we went for some food. She recommended this place called ‘Ellen’s stardust diner’ it’s supposed to be famous but I’d Never heard it Hahahahaha. The queue to this place was around for block so we waited inline for around 35 minutes before a table became available.

    I’ll be honest I wasn’t a fan of it - but I liked the concept. All the waiters and waitresses sing and dance on tables etc, but they weren’t that good Hahahahaha. The food was alright though. Anyway we’re sitting there taking the piss out the place and a guy turns up behind me with a camera and a microphone asking me can he interview me about our experience at the restaurant..... fuck me nearly died. Carla is crying laughing whilst I’m there lying to this guy about how amazing this place was.... never felt more awkward in my life. We left not long after, crying laughing

    After there we went to the Rockefeller tree and then watched the light show at Saks. We then went the Christmas markets on Bryant park and got a beer, but it was freezing so we only stayed for the one then I took her to Carraghers Bar as she didn’t know it was there! We was in there from about 8pm to 1am just drinking and catching up which was cool - Carla got smashed was hilarious. I walked Carla back to her hotel by Times Square which was about 15 blocks away and she kept stopping and dancing and humming in the street. A walk which should of taken maybe 20 mins ended up taking closer to 1 hour. I dropped Carla off at the hotel and went to get the subway back to Brooklyn. Every train was cancelled after I had been waiting there for an hour I decided to just get an Uber back. Fuming. But over all a brilliant day!

    Manhattan Remembrance walk

    June 20, 2017 in the United States

    Went to all the places from our trip in 2014 today: Times Square, Central Park and added an incredible Steak house, too bad they did not accept our 150$ gift card and we had to pay the 200$ bill total, that means a lot of pasta in the next days 😉 also planned the next trip: Boston, Montreal and Chicago here we comeRead more

    Brooklyn, New York City

    June 17, 2017 in the United States

    Das ist mal ein Kontrast. Junge, Junge! Nach drei Wochen Natur und skandinavischer Gelassenheit haben wir uns ins bunte Treiben geworfen. Ersten Burger verhaftet und ein Getränk auf dem Dach unseres neuen Heimes genossen.

    Exploring Brooklyn

    October 19 in the United States

    Our host had already left for work by the time we got up, but we did meet her dog. Him and Schnitzel had a brief set-to before sorting themselves out.

    We spent today wandering around Brooklyn, one of the five boroughs of New York City. Most important was the morning vet visit, where the long process for getting Schnitzel back to Australia started. She suggested the lump on his side was probably an inflammation from his vaccine the other day, and not to worry too much about it unless it didn't go down over the next week. So that was a load off our minds.

    Checked out our immediate neighbourhood of Williamsburg which is a hipster central place, then headed down to DUMBO (Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass) on the waterfront for lunch. Great view of the Manhattan skyline from here. Checked out a few shops and took things easy, before walking across Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan in the late afternoon. Didn't go far into Manhattan, just got the train back home. Went to Brooklyn Brewery for a quick drink (they didn't do tasting paddles which I was surprised at!), then had a huge pizza slice on the way home.

    Met our host finally in the evening, a late 20s professional woman. She's quite nice and chatty, though Americans generally are chatty.

    Gemütlicher Tag im Big Apple

    June 19, 2017 in the United States

    Kleiner Spaziergang, ausgiebige Mittagspause (es war schon wieder heftig heiß!), super lecker gegessen und einen abgefahrenen Sonnenuntergang auf unseren Dach gesehen. Jetzt noch zur Abrundung des Tages ein lokales Bier. Ja, auch die Amerikaner haben mittlerweile herausgefunden, dass es mehr als Bud und Miller light gibt;-)Read more

    Staten Island Ferry, Brooklyn

    September 16, 2017 in the United States

    Gestern sind wir mit der kostenlosen Fähre nach Staten Island übergesetzt. Auf der 20-minütigen Fahrt hat man tolle Sicht auf die Freiheitsstatue und ein unschlagbares Skyline-Panorama.

    Heute ging es über die ziemlich volle Brooklyn Bridge Petros und Fatma besuchen. In NYC gibt es übrigens über 2000 Brücken, die Brooklyn Bridge ist aber eine der schönsten und ältesten. Brooklyn wird immer mehr zur noch bezahlbaren Alternative für die New Yorker (Besserverdiener).

    Achja und Waschtag war heute auch das erste Mal angesagt.
