    Retail Therapy

    August 14, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    I had set aside my last full day in the city for SHOPPING. Frivolous after the last 7 weeks I know but I figured having come this far - why the hell not?

    I started my day with a long awaited breakfast at Denny's. The diner franchise had been a popular favourite of Mum and Dad's in the 80s and they had taken me there in the 90s so it was nice to finally cross it off the list. Their pancakes were easily the best I'd had.

    After breakfast I ventured into Chinatown to find Mum her coveted Louis Vuitton fake but much to my dismay the fake handbag industry in Chinatown has either disappeared or gone seriously underground. No fake handbags to be seen anywhere. This was a huge disappointment!

    Next stop was Fifth avenue for the Lego Store and Saks followed by a return to Times Square for the big Disney Store. Whilst sitting for a quick breather by the Rockefeller Centre I was approached by an old man who insisted on taking my picture. I tried to resist but he was insistent. He took my phone and took multiple snaps and then returned the phone to me, shook my hand amd walked away. One of his results is below and needless to say I was really chuffed with his results and further encouraged by the kindess of strangers on my travels.

    My final stop was, of course, Target where I procured Douglas the Duffel along with many chocolate hugs and kisses. It has to be said that I knew Petunia woild not be impressed with Douglas but he was cheap, he was functional and quite frankly she could do worse!

    After a long day on my feet, I had a lovely chilled evening in my Air BnB slowly packing and eating Jack Daniels Honey Pulled Pork and Chocolate Chip Eggos!

    Roosewelt Island Tramway

    April 14, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Laut Reiseführer und Internet unter den Topten der Gratisangebote. Dies stimmt nicht mehr. Wir zogen einfach mal unsere Metrocard durch.....und siehe da: Es blinkt grün. Dieses Erlebnis ist aber nur ein Erlebnis, wenn Platz am Fenster. Stehst du in der Mitte der Gondel, bringt es absolut nichts. Also warteten wir extra eine Gondel ab und positionierten uns wie hungrige Tiere vor der Fütterung. Das Adrenalin stieg, als die Öffnung der Türe sich näherte. Unser Ehrgeiz lohnte sich: Die besten Plätze!

    Auf der Insel angekommen, mussten wir die Gondel verlassen. Einmal um die Absperrung gejoggt, stiegen wir wieder auf der anderen Seite in die selbe Gondel ein.

    Sicher ein spezielles Erlebnis mit der Gondel über den Strassen von New York zu schweben 🤙🏻.

    Roosevelt Tramway

    December 31, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 5 °C

    Die Roosevelt Island Tramway ist eine Luftseilbahn in New York City (USA), sie verbindet Roosevelt Island mit Manhattan. Es ist die älteste von ursprünglich nur drei (mittlerweile verbliebenen zwei) städtischen Luftseilbahnen in Nordamerika, die dem öffentlichen Personennahverkehr dienen. Erbaut wurde die Luftseilbahn 1976 vom Schweizer Unternehmen Von Roll. 2010 wurde sie durch ein von Poma gebautes, vollständig neues Seilbahnsystem ersetzt.Read more
