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 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...

Jun 21, 2014 - Waking up early :(... flying to NYC :)

Grandma and I had to to wake up at 3:30 in the morning to get on a shuttle to LAX Airport where I thought I was going to meet my Dad. When we got there grandma said we could go to the terminal and be there when he arrived... we waited for about an hour, then she said we had passes to meet him on the plane and he was in seat 26B so I went all the way back to look for him but he wasn't there! Grandma said we could sit there and we would meet him in Salt Lake City UT. Hmmmmm? So we flew to Salt Lake City in Utah. When we got there I thought we...

Best USA tour ever!!

Jun 12, 2014 - Over the ocean after a delay

Boarded a completely full flight from Charlotte and the plane had to detour around a system of storms, so we flew west then north to New York (JFK). We were about 45 minutes late. Then we wandered around looking for the terminal – and found we needed the “sky train” to Terminal One. Tried to go through security but didn’t have the right tickets, so back to the terminal, got the tickets (and found the flight was delayed for an additional 30 minutes), then in line. It took a while but we finally got through. Looked at food at a couple places...

May 26, 2014 - Sights of the Big apple

Yesterday I didn't get around to doing a blog, I ran out of data on my phone and was too late to deal with wi-fi. Yesterday we had a great day, the weather was on the improve, shorts and t-shirt weather. We went to the 9/11 Memorial Museum which has only opened in the last week. It was an amazing experience, the tributes to those who had not survived and the volunteers were fantastic. A bit hard to describe the emotions of seeing first hand the destruction caused and the thousands of families effected. The boys found it hard to believe that...
