    Day 1 NYC

    December 17, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 7 °C

    Probably hard to call it Day 1.. more like 0.5 as we set the alarm for 8am but didn’t drag ourselves out of bed until nearly 6am Sydney time.. (2pm NYC). We went straight to Times Square, where I must admit I was a little disappointed. I didn’t even know what to take a picture of because nothing was that cool. Also, not impressed with the smell of the streets or the subway. I’ve smelt loads of different smells today and none of them were a Sweet Pea Candle like scent. We looked a couple of Macy’s windows and made our way back to the hotel for Mike to make a work call. We are Chipotle for dinner (again disappointing). Our nighttime activity was exploring the Empire State Building! We went to floors 80, 86, and 102. We came, we saw, we froze. Great view though. $1 oysters for dinner and Dunkin Donuts for dessert. Yum.Read more

    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!

    Empire State Building

    November 7, 2017 in the United States ⋅

    Our Hotel- Hotel Pennsylvania, is opposite Penn Station & Madison Square Garden. Also just around the corner from the Empire State Building- we decided to go to the top last night- freezing cold but amazing views of the lights of Manhattan.

    Broadway Musical

    October 9, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 23 °C

    Heute geht es an den Broadway in das sicherlich mit Abstand coolste Musical 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻. Doch da müssen wir leider noch bis heute Abend warten 😕.

    Durch das Musical heute Abend können wir den Sonnenuntergang auf dem Empire State Building leider nicht mehr in Angriff nehmen. Aber das nehme ich (Sophie) dafür gerne in Kauf. Daher starten wir den Tag heute mit dem Empire State Building in der Hoffnung, dass das Wetter uns nicht schon wieder einen Strich durch die Rechnung macht.
    Es ist zwar bewölkt, aber die Wolken hängen nicht so tief wie die letzten Tage. Und da uns so oder so keine Alternative bleibt, nehmen wir die Auffahrt in Angriff. Trotz der Wolken ist der Blick über Manhattan sehr beeindruckend, auch wenn Downtown schon ganz leicht im Nebel verschwindet.

    Nachdem wir wieder auf Ground Level sind, machen wir uns auf Richtung Central Park. Eigentlich wollten wir uns einen ganzen Tag für den Central Park gönnen, er ist ja nicht gerade klein, aber da wir unsere anderen Aktivitäten durch das Wetter immer verschieben mussten, bleiben uns nun nur noch 1,5 Stunden. Wir starten beim Central Park Zoo, der schon geschlossen hat, schlendern die berühmte "The Mall" Straße entlang, welche man gefühlt in jedem Film, der in NYC spielt, sieht und kommen am Platz der Bethesda Fountain an, der jedem, der Kevin alleine in New York gesehen hat, nur zu bekannt vorkommt. Weiter geht es zu den Strawberry Fields, ein Denkmal welches zu Ehren John Lennons errichtet wurde. Da heute John Lennons Geburtstag wäre, ist hier einiges los. Viele Leute haben sich an dem Denkmal versammelt und spielen und singen Lieder von den Beatles.

    Für uns wird es nun allerdings Zeit Richtung Broadway zu gehen. Wir wollen ja nicht zu spät kommen, immerhin habe ich mich schon den ganzen Tag auf mein Geburtstagsgeschenk gefreut 😊. Ich würde ja sagen, dass ein Kindheitstraum in Erfüllung geht, aber so lange gibt es den Film, geschweige denn das Musical, ja noch gar nicht. Aber zumindest fühlt es sich so an 😊.
    Endlich geht der Vorhang auf und Anna und Elsa betreten die Bühne. Wir sind sowohl von den Bühnenbildern als auch von den Darstellern vollauf begeistert. In der gesanglichen Leistung merkt man doch schon einen erheblichen Unterschied zu den Musicals in Deutschland, welche auch sehr gut sind.
    Für die nicht so eingefleischten Disney Fans, wir haben uns das Broadway Musical Frozen ❄ angeguckt 😉.

    Nach dem Musical gehen wir heute endlich auf Top of the Rock und auch der Blick über Manhattan bei Nacht ist unglaublich. Bevor wir, mittlerweile schon halb verhungert, den Heimweg antreten, gibt es noch eine Kleinigkeit bei 5 Napkins.

    Empire State Building, New-York, USA

    August 17, 2017 in the United States ⋅

    Hier nous sommes allés à l'Empire State Building. Grâce à nos city pass, nous avons sauté 30 minutes de queue. En haut nous avons eu une vue magnifique sur toute la ville. Sur la plateforme du dessus, nous pouvions entrer dans une pièce dans laquelle il y avait des lumières au plafond qui nous suivaient : c'était grave cool.

    Niagara Falls to New York by Amtrak

    May 11, 2015 in the United States ⋅

    There being only a handful of passengers to board at Niagara Falls in the rising light of early morning we got our pick of seats, choosing some at the end of the carriage with enough leg room to stretch right out.

    The sun blanketed the bodies of a father and his infant daughter as they slept in their seats. Broken and graffitied facades of abandoned industry stared back at us whilst dirty great freight shuttled past with their telltale bell ringing. The long mournful call of our horn sounded over the ever present click-clack of the tracks.

    Morning turned to midday and it became apparent that we were going to be delayed for similar reasons to those we encountered when travelling up to Niagara Falls. This meant that we missed our connection to Washington by 3 hours...

  • Day103


    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.
