  • Day19

    New York

    January 22 in the United States

    What a great day👍🏼
    We started off with meeting our friends Caitlin and Jordan for breaky, after we traveled on the subway towards the cruise line doc where we caught a cruise boat around New York seeing some of the popular attractions like the Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn Bridge!
    We then headed towards the 9/11 memorial and museum which was very interesting and extremely sad! It was definitely an eye opener.
    Once we explored the museum we headed out to a very nice Italian restaurant, we visited the ice skating rink at the Rockefeller building and checked it out ready for tomorrow night.
    We said goodnight to our mates and did a little shopping in Times Square on the way back to our room! We are currently laying in bed getting ready to get some shut eye for our big day tomorrow! Stay tuned for our next adventure in New York 🙌🏽

  • Day21

    New York

    January 24 in the United States

    We went every where yesterday!
    - Empire state building
    - Central Park
    We rode on horse and carriage around the park and seen heaps of dog walkers, like actual ones they were walking about 20 dogs at the one time! The park was huge
    - The plaza food court (we had dumplings and they were amazing)
    - Maddison Square Garden
    Unfortunately Maddison Square was closed to go inside due to them setting up ready for the Grammys, but we went out the front and looked at the outlay of just how big it is inside.
    - Central Station
    We had to go see central station it was in my favourite Rv show gossip girl so it was only fitting we took a photo 😂
    - Broadway
    We watched The Book of Mormon at broadway and it was amazing ! It was by far the best show I have ever seen.

    New York

    January 23 in the United States

    We had a great day today! We woke up when ever we liked for the first time since we have been on the holiday it was so good to sleep in for a bit. We headed down to Tiffany's where we found out we couldn't have breaky because there was a month long waiting list!
    I brought a beautiful pendant to wear at a necklace and also I can clip it onto my bracelet that I got off toby for my 21st.
    We headed to lunch and then back to Tiffany's to pick up the pendant. We also went and visited the NBA store and the Adidas store which is the largest store in the world!
    After our shopping adventures we went to the National History Museum where they filmed night at the museum. We caught the subway back to our hotel and got ready to meet up with our friends for some NY pizza and then ice skating at the Rocker Fella centre, god toby and I were hopeless at it! When we finished ice skating we went up to the top of the Rocker Fella and the view was surreal, we could see the Statue of Liberty through the binoculars as well!
    On the way back to our rooms we called in at Juniors for some desert, where it was supposed to be home to America's best Cheesecake but we still think the Cheesecake Factory takes the cake 😊

    June 20, 2017 in the United States

    Heute ging es mal rüber nach Manhattan. Wahnsinnig voll, aber immer noch wahnsinnig beeindruckend. Natürlich auch alle Stellen von damals abgelaufen. Apropos beeindruckend: zum Abschluss wurde der Gutschein im Ruth's Chris Steakhouse eingelöst 😋

    Time Square, New-York, USA

    August 17, 2017 in the United States

    Nous sommes arrivés à New York. On a visité plein de trucs. Mais je vais plutôt vous raconter Times Square :

    Times Square est une immense place où il y a partout d'immenses affiches ou écrans publicitaires. C'est aussi dans cette avenue que l'on trouve le magasin m&m's. C'est en voyant cette cinquantaine d'immenses tubes remplis à ras bord de m&m's de toutes les couleurs, de toutes les formes et de tous les goûts possibles et inimaginables que pour la première fois de ma vie j'ai regretté de ne pas aimer les m&m's. Il y avait plein d'autres trucs m&m's.

  • Day6

    Central Park

    November 24 in the United States

    Real lazy start to the day, not venturing down to breakfast until 10 AM must have been tired out from yesterday.
    We decide to wander into Central Park taking in the varying different elements, watch a little bit of ice skating but neither of us are keen on partaking at the moment. As we wander out we spot the horse and carriage rides, we decide to take the tour with Danny Boy (that’s our horse for the next 45 minutes). The driver is very knowledgeable pointing out several different elements referencing lots of films to locations including Home Alone. We stop at the fountain that’s in the Friends opening/closing credits for some photos before finishing our tour.
    Leaving Central Park we head down 7th, cutting off at Radio City Music Hall, and the Rockafella centre where they are preparing for the Christmas lights switch on on Wednesday. It’s heaving in and around there today so Wednesday could be interesting!! They also have ice skating on the lower level of the Rockafella, we get a view but getting close to it would have been a battle. Over to Grand Central Station via Saks 5th Avenue, I’d been recommended a bar at GCS, once we find it, it’s packed, maybe 5 on a Saturday isn’t the best time. We go off hunting for a secret bar that I have read about, we find it on the 2nd floor of a hotel but it’s closed for renovations 🤔. We battle on through a very busy Times Square and after that we need a couple of 🍻.
    After several beers we are heading back to Central Park the idea being to watch the ice skating under lights, but both needing the loo and it’s persistent raining, we seek solace in another refreshment establishment. Ice skating can wait for another day. We call for traditional pizza on the way back to our hotel. We get a small pizza, of course it’s massive, but very nice.

  • Day9


    September 4, 2016 in the United States

    Abends noch um einiges voller als am Tag. Also ich habe bis heute wirklich noch nie auf einer Straße Schlange gestanden um auf einen öffentlichen Platz zu kommen.

    Morgen starten wir mit einer Bootsfahrt zur Statue of Liberty. Aber es stehen auch noch andere Sehenswürdigkeiten auf dem Plan. Dazu morgen entweder zwischendurch oder abends mehr.Read more

  • Day305


    August 13, 2016 in the United States

    Kanada haben wir nun verlassen und sind in der Stadt die niemals schläft angekommen, in New York City und direkt am Big Apple. Der Schock war eratmal die extreme Hitze. Denn bei 35 Grad im Schatten kommt man sich zwischen den Wolkenkratzern wir im Backofen vor. Aber nichts desdo trotz haben wir die Stadt zu Fuß erkundet, gibt hier ja zum Glück an fast jeder Ecke ein Trinkwasser Spender. Auf unseren Kreuzzug haben die Klassiker angesehen, wie die Brooklyn Bridge, die Freiheitsstatue, das World Trade Center Memorial und und und ... wie man auf dem Bild unten sieht haben wir auch unseren Helden aus der Kindheit getroffen ... irgendwie hatte ich mir den aber kleiner vorgestellt. Ansonsten ist Nee York, nach allem Großstädten die wir bisher gesehen nochmal was ganz anderes.Read more

    New York in a day

    November 4, 2017 in the United States

    We made the most of our 10 hour layover in New York.

    Me, Riaan and Torrie took an uber from JFK to Karin’s place in the upper east of Manhattan for a long awaited shower.

    The 4 of us hit the streets by foot, train and cab to see Time Square, Empire State building, Chrysler building, Grand Central station, 911 memorial and finally the State of Liberty.

    It was fun to see NYC through Riaan and Torrie’s eyes as they were blown away by the city and its sights and sounds.

    As always it was a pleasure to see Karen again and catch up with he, the last time we saw each other was when Isabel ran the NY half in 2016 a year and a half ago.
