  • Day1

    New York

    December 4, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 5 °C

    This was our first day in NYC 🗽 A bit of a crazy start to the day, as we over slept and woke up at 4pm NYC time!
    Didn’t matter we got moving and spent the next six or so hours walking the streets and getting a feel for the place. It has been around 1-2 degrees for most of the night, so quite brisk.
    Our apartment is situated two blocks from Times Square, so we headed there first. It feels just like day time with all the lights, it is quite a sight. Then we made our way to 5th Avenue via Bryant Park. Here there were Christmas markets, an ice skating rink and another beautiful Christmas tree. Then we went onto to the Rockefeller Centre to see the Christmas tree and the beautiful light show on Saks Department store. We continued to wander the streets and made our way back to Times Square for dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe.
    Back home at 11pm to try and sleep and get our bodies onto NYC time, with the hope that we will see NYC in daylight tomorrow, will need to st an alarm!⏰

    New York

    December 6, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 3 °C

    Yes! Got to see daylight today! Bonus!
    Took the Hop On Hop Off bus for the Downtown route! OMG! It took all day with the traffic! Did get off to investigate Chinatown, Tribeca (awesome coffee!☕️) and the Empire State Building. The day looks beautiful with sunny skies but the cold was crazy, 1 degree all day!
    Also found a gem for my Black and White family⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️
    Went to dinner at an amazing restaurant, it was like tapas but with a twist. Lots of small dishes to share ranging from ricotta ravioli, stuffed eggplant with goats cheese, spicy meatballs and octopus bruschetta, just name a few. Our dinner guests were my travelling companion, Mary-Anne’s USA relatives. It was a lovely evening with great food and wine and very enjoyable company.

    New York

    December 7, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 -2 °C

    Today we hopped on and off again on the bus for the Uptown trip. Visiting the East side, Harlem and Central Park. As it was freezing cold there was more “hop on” than “hop off”. Central Park looks real colourless in the cold, no green grass and no leaves on the trees. However, it is still an amazing amount of Park in the middle of this city. We had lunch in a true NY Deli today, the chicken noodle soup really hit the spot on a two degree day. Tonight in minus one temperatures we ventured out to see “Kinky Boots” on Broadway. The show was amazing, I loved every minute! I would highly recommend it.
    We finished the night off with traditional NY pizza for supper.

  • Day6

    New York

    December 9, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 -1 °C

    Final day in New York, took it pretty easy and slow as I think the jet lag has caught up with me. Wandered the streets after breakfast on our way to the theatre booking office. We booked to see the musical “Beautiful - The Carole King Story”. As the name suggests it was simply beautiful. Funny, emotional and very entertaining. There were so many songs that I knew but didn’t realise that she had written them with and without her husband. Visited the HBO shop and purchased some “Game of Thrones” keepsakes.Read more
