  • Day35

    I see NYC.

    September 1, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    I did not get to spend much time in New York City, but it was enough to take two expensive sightseeing tours and make the best out of the even more expensive hotel. (The three nights here equate to a sixth of my entire accommodation budget for over 60 nights!) In true Paul fashion, I dedicated one day to the New York Public Library. There I worked my way through 12 books over the course of 5.5 hours, ending up with 555 pages I can take back home for my State Exam thesis. But I am taking so much more with me, and it will only get more throughout the second half of my journey!Read more

    Steve Madden vs. Apple

    February 12, 2019 in the United States ⋅ 🌨 -2 °C

    Als bekennende Opfer des Kommerzes gehen wir noch ein wenig durch die Geschäfte bummeln. Apple ruft Anton, während ich mit femin profanen Dingen wie Schuhen von Steve Madden zufrieden zu stellen bin. Der Apple store befindet sich direkt in der wunderschönen Grand Central Station, die ein architektonische Augenweide ist und im oben genannten Battle als klarer, wenn auch unbeteiligter Sieger hervorgeht. Mit der Subway geht's zurück ins Hotel, von dessen Terasse wir eine tolle, wenn auch immer noch feuchte Aussicht genießen. Kaputti fallen wir ins Bett...Read more

    Hard Rock Café

    December 8, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 2 °C

    Wenn man schon in New York ist, dann muss man auch ins Hard Roch Café und Burger essen. Sehr schöner Laden, mit mehreren Sitzetagen und kleinen Nieschen. Riesen Leinwand und wie immer die geilste Mucke im Hintergrund. Schöner kann ein erlebnisreicher Tag nicht enden!

    We walked the line.

    November 26, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 6 °C

    Sunday in New York - we will get some steps in today but in may be difficult to beat yesterday’s total of 22,272 (a personal best). Another beautiful day = sunshine and blue sky, not that we see that much of the sun with the shadows of these skyscrapers! As we headed out this morning on our way to the High Line, there was a brisk wind blowing and not much sun to warm us. We walked the High Line, a linear park built on a disused rail line, admiring the scenery and the sculpture exhibition by multiple artists titled "Mutations". Some pieces were easier than others to work out ... there were even a few with explanations that I still didn’t get! Not sure if that is a reflection on me or the “art”.

    After the High Line, we headed to Chelsea Market for a bit of a browse and then had some lunch. We went to the "Green Table" restaurant who believe that the best food is grown, raised and harvested within a day’s drive of the table. The food we had was delicious and fairly priced. As we were leaving the market, we ran into the Greens who are also here on holiday, which was a nice surprise. We will catch up with them for dinner on Monday night.

    We caught the subway back up to 42nd street, and had a bit of down time before we needed to head out again for our first show on Broadway. We got up to the August Wilson Theatre only to find it closed, and no "Ground Hog Day". Apparently it closed in September after opening in April to rave reviews. The lady in the box office was very nice and helpful, and advised me that Ticketmaster would have refunded the money. I checked when we got back to our apartment, and yes it was refunded in late August. I don’t understand why they wouldn’t send an email to advise us of this. Very disappointing - I have now got a ticket to "Waitress" on Tuesday night, and the boys elected for a night in, so everyone is happy.

    As we had a free couple of hours, we decided to walk up to Central Park and take it all in. We watched with amusement as a guy let his dog off the lead and he then (the dog) had a stand off with a squirrel - the dog came off second best, as those squirrels can move at lightening speed. It didn’t deter the dog from trying to creep up on the next squirrel or bird in its sights. We also saw people ice-skating, and we may give it a go at the Rockefeller Plaza ( I used to skate when I was young, hopefully I is like riding a bike and it will all co e back to me).

    We then walked back to our apartment down 5th Avenue past Tiffany's, but I couldn’t persuade Ian to buy me anything🙁. Some of the Christmas decorations are now up and they look fabulous. We have again broken the 20,000 step barrier, and so we rewarded ourselves with a cuppa and shared a brownie from the Fat Witch.

    Tonight we went to a local restaurant (next door to our apartment) called "Un, Deux, Trois", which was very nice.

    Another big day planned for tomorrow so a good nights rest is required.

    Liveticker

    November 30, 2016 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 11 °C

    Auf vielfachen Wunsch sind wir für euch live...

    Der Rest vom Tag war / ist indoor: Madame Tussauds 🕵, M&M's Store 🍡 gerade sitzen wir im Hard Rock Christmas Café 🎸🍔 und nachher noch eine Führung in der Radio City Music Hall, wo gerade mehrmals täglich die Rockettes mit ihrer Weihnachtsshow auftreten - das miese Wetter wird also bestens genutzt ;)

    Heute steigt außerdem noch die große Christmas Tree Lightning Show am Rockefeller Center, aber es schüttet wieder was das Zeug hält, und der Baum steht morgen auch noch...

    Morgen scheint endlich die Sonne wieder, dann geht's auf's Wasser und in die Luft ✌

    Times Square

    April 13, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 8 °C

    Bereits am Vormittag schon hektisch - im Starbucks. Das Wetter ist gut, aber es weht eine frische Brise durch die Gassen.

    Welche Persönlichkeiten das sein sollen - keine Ahnung, aber es sieht sehr wichtig aus😎.

    Times Square am Abend folgt an einem anderen Tag.

    New York

    March 9, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 2 °C

    After a little rough time getting to New York - we love it!
    Finally got into our room at 1.30 am after a 6 am start that day and my luggage turned up the next night - thank God.
    Spent most of our first day at 9/11. Words cannot describe what you see and feel there, a memorial that is so well done ❤️
    We walked the Brooklyn Bridge and went to the top of the Empire State Building last night and off to the Statue of Liberty now.

    Beautiful - The Carol King Story

    March 10, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 1 °C

    Tonight we went and saw the Broadway Musical- Beautiful, the Carol King Story. What a fantastic musical.
    Even better we had seats in the orchestra section and paid a fraction of what seats were worth. Learnt about going to the theatre the morning of and asking if any "rush" tickets available 👏👏👏
