Sep 24, 2014 - New York

My second day in New York. Today I had a wander around around West Village and then walked down to the Hudson River Park and walked to the remaining twin tower. Spooky to think about the 9 11 event . It is a huge building site and the new building will be amazing when it is finished. I passed a few lovely parks and gardens on the way and then caught the subway back again. Luckily I popped up where I wanted to be so feel more comfortable now. I went to Jack's and had a coffee which was good as I hadn't had one all day. I had dinner with...

Sep 23, 2014 - New York City

I am now in the US. It is so long since I was last here. 1999. Last century! New York is an amazing city. The sheer size is overwhelming. My flight was long and boring. British Ariways have very limited movies and music to kill the time. I sat next to Stephanie who was from Melbourne. She works for Telstra in NYC. She was not very fresh to be near but she was bright and bubbly when we struck up conversation . She has done a Masters in Art History but ended up in a quite different field. She had been travelling with her mother in Italy so...

Sep 21, 2014 - Washington DC to New York City - USA

Our last entry finished on Saturday 13th September and we had just spent our first day in Washington DC. On Sunday we spent our second day sightseeing and headed into the city centre from our hotel which was in the very pleasant, Van Ness university area. We were situated a couple of blocks from the metro system and used it extensively to travel around the city. Our first stop was to the base of the Washington monument which is a 555 foot marble obelisk built to honour the first president. We then headed down the National mall to the...

Sep 19, 2014 - sept 19 new york city

We got up early and were takenby tour bus to the big apple. We visited times square, Rockefeller plaza, ground zero (very impressive), took the ferry to ellis island and the statue of liberty. Very good tour, learned alot about the area, it's history and saw the famous areas so familiar from television and movies. But I'm ready to get away from the crowds and see some nature after a day in the city.

Sep 16, 2014 - early morning, man hat on

[with a nod to peter gabriel] an appropriate title, since this man had a hat on while walking through manhattan. ok, bad pun. anyway, this is a long post – and a long overdue post. again i apologise; my daughter catalina has never been to new york or new jersey or philadelphia, so every day after my walking we went tourist-ing. i haven’t gotten a lot of sleep, but we’ve seen a lot and visited some friends too. and now that i’m done with the walk, my wife and i are really running around. in fact, as i write this, we just drove 213 miles from...

Sep 13, 2014 - London

I returned to London on the train. Before leaving I went to see what was going on in the paddock across the road. I had a cup of tea and looked at the cakes and produce. Funny little English country fair. Next the sheep arrived and each farmer emptied their truck and the sheep were locked in their own pet ready for judging. They were all different colours and their wool quite course and long. My trip home was so easy. I missed the turn on the roundabout to the airport as the sign was not clear but did another lap and it worked ok. It was so...

Sep 10, 2014 - National September 11 Memorial and Museum

We got a bad start yesterday. As I sat down on the bed I didn't realize that Ringo was under the covers and I sat on him. When I pulled the covers off he ran out of the bedroom and disappeared. I guess he went under the dashboard. Sue tried to coax him out, but no luck so we left for NYC. We thought that we were going to be back to his reclusive ways, but when we got home in the evening he came out. He's been doing well since we put out a cat pheromone diffuser. It's kind of like an Airwick scent diffuser and it supposed to calm nervous...

2014 Cross Country 2

Aug 28, 2014 - New York City, 28 & 29 August

We started our 1st full day in NY catching the subway down to the southern tip of Manhatttan, to board the tour boat to take us to Ellis Island Immigration Museum and around the Statue of Liberty (sorry to repeat yesterday's photo, but it is, as they unfortunately say too often, an iconic site / sight). On the way, I managed to find this really small hat to wear. Na na na na na naaaa, na na na na na nah etc etc. New York skyline from the boat. Singing optional. I know where they got the idea from - what a *******. The Madison Square...

Aug 27, 2014 - New York City

Our first full day in New York and we saw / visited: Ellis Island Immigration Museum. Took the liberty of sailing by, rather than visiting (too busy). The 9/11 Memorial. I don't know who they are, either. Julie and I have both been to New York before, but I was working and Julie was twice a tourist, so we'll probably haggle over what to leave out tomorrow (Friday) and Saturday morning. It's the Labor Day Weekend here (I know, there's no u), which will make it like the UK public holiday - aaarrrgggghhhhh. Travelled around today using the...

Aug 26, 2014 - Washington DC to New York, New York, by train

Today we added 5 more states to our list, which now totals 15 plus Washingon DC (but who's counting?). Ok, technically, including states which we crossed by train may sound a bit dodgy, but we did stop at stations in Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and of course New York (so good they forgot what they called it the first time). So we're claiming them all. Our transport from Union Station, Washington DC was the very comfortable Train 174, which did the journey in just under 4 hours. Free internet and power on the train. Wifey,...

Aug 12, 2014 - Rift Rogue Leveling Introduction

Levels 31-50 At this time, I actually propose respeccing. In my expertise in putting jointly this Rift Rogue leveling guidebook that your pet begins to acquire a minor weak close to degree 31. The one obligatory areas of this Rift Rogue leveling manual are that you just get the Blood Raptor (31 points in Ranger), and Invigorated Soul and Motif of Restoration (12 details in Bard). After that, everything is about private preference. You should use the rift dungeon drops Blood Raptor in dungeons (it specials good destruction for low risk, and...
