Nov 19, 2013 - New York

Our trip to New York was very great! It's a big beautiful city. But it's really cold there. the main temperature was 9°C. The landscape is covered of skyscrapers and lots of sights.

Nov 3, 2013 - Leaving home

Good & bad news today. I was out of sorts & running late leaving for the airport. Got to JFK at 3:00 for my 5:30 flight, only to find out I'd been rebooked for an 11:50 pm flight. Bad news is that I now had hours to wait, but on the upside, I'm now flying direct in Business the whole way instead of connecting and being economy part of the way. Came home to kill time & re-pack and managed to find all the stuff I either couldn't find or had forgotten earlier. Second trip to JFK was no problem. Had an interesting experience in the lounge...

Nov 2, 2013 - DAY 33. NEW YORK

Took the hired car back to the rental company and jumped on the metro into downtown New York to Times Square. We weren’t sure whether to do a guided tour or just find our way around, and decided on the less formal option. So armed with a map and some info from Lonely Planet, we hit the streets. To say it is like walking in a maze is an understatement. The big problem was that we didn’t know which was North, South, East and West, so landed up in Central Park, quite by mistake, when we thought we were actually walking in the opposite...

Nov 1, 2013 - Day 32. Woodstock To New York.

We discovered from a local restaurant owner that early music festivals did take place at Woodstock and then in 1969 they realised that there would be too many people for the small village of Woodstock, so a guy named Jasker, offered the use of his farm for the festival at a town about 60 miles away. Trust Garmin, as we get in the car ready to head for the “Big Apple” (New York), it decided to go on the blink and kept switching off!! Can you believe it. So out comes the map and now we have to navigate into New York by map. Yippee!!! Well,...

Oct 17, 2013 - 4 days in New York

MONDAY - very cramped 7 hr BA flight from London to New York; sad to leave Ruth and little Zoe but hopefully they will make it to Oz for 3 weeks in January and I'll see them when I return. What a delightful, entertaining child she is, they are enjoying being her parents and their butchery business is thriving. 4 DAYS IN NEW YORK with some photos - a busy exhilarating city that lives up to its considerable reputation. I've been sampling a typical Manhattan apartment lifestyle by renting a room booked online with Airbnb. My hosts, Gabriel and...

Oct 16, 2013 - The Big Apple

Got on the tour bus about 7:15 am. I was worried we'd be late or the bus would come early so we had been waiting since 6:40 am. Our stop was the second one the bus driver had made. Three ladies from the Houston area were already on the bus. So good to hear someone else say "y'all" The bus driver's name was Carson. He handled the city driving pretty darn good! The next group of people was waiting on the bus in a van at a Sam's Club parking lot. To our surprise that group was 11 Amish. Then three other couples joined us from another van. And...

Oct 14, 2013 - The 9/11 Memorial in Manhattan

Originally scheduled for tomorrow, we decided to visit the 9/11 Memorial in Manhattan today. By 8:30 we were on the road to Highlands where we boarded a ferry for downtown Manhattan. 45 minutes later we arrived...what great views from Pier 11. After taking some pictures we walked around the tip of the city and up to the area of the Memorial. It took us at least two hours to get into the site. The mechanics of getting in are a little shaky, but the Memorial itself is very well done. The police and the security people (and there are lots of...

Oct 11, 2013 - Macy's, Soup Nazi, Nails and NBA

Today we headed down to Macy's to do some shopping. We spent a few hours looking around (they have some good sales). After loading up the pram to it allowed weight limit, we headed out of Macy's.. We stopped for lunch at the Soup Nazi. The soup is very nice, and the soups on offer change daily, we tried clam chowder and chicken noodle. They are not as strict as I expected, which is lucky as we probably would not have been fed! After lunch we split into teams. The girls went to get their nails done on 6th Avenue and the boys went to the NBA...
