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...

May 24, 2014 - A day in the park

When we woke today it had rained quite a bit overnight but it had cleared up so off to Central Park for the day. The boys were both keen for space to run and kick the footy. We decided to walk from our hotel and made a stop on the way for breakfast. It was a fair walk but the sun had come out and as it was Saturday morning it was not quite as busy as it has been during the week. We eventually got there and we wandered around stopping to watch buskers, people playing volleyball and for the boys to runaround and use up some of their excess...

May 23, 2014 - Sky high

The weather held off this morning so we were able to go up to the 86th floor of the Empire State Building today, wow that is soooo high up. It was a fantastic view of the whole city up there and luckily for us there was no wind or rain. It was still very cloudy but we could still see everything up there. Sam got to feed a squirrel by hand today which he was very excited about. We also went to the 911 memorial this afternoon. That was an amazing experience, very emotional. They have done such a great job of paying tribute to so many people...

May 22, 2014 - Rain Rain go away!!

After a well earned sleep in (Tracey and the boys onLy, I seem to be averaging about 5 or 6 hours sleep a night and then I'm wide awake ready to get going), we set off for our first full day in New York. Our plans to go to the top of the Empire State Building had to be changed, when we walked out of our hotel, we couldn't even see the top of it and we were told that there was zero visibility from up there as the clouds were so low they were covering the top. So we started off on our Hop On Hop Off tour of downtown Manhattan. It's just...

May 21, 2014 - New York, New York

Today we made our way by car to New York and it was a little stressful, we couldn't believe the traffic and how everyone just went where they wanted to be and it all seemed to flow with no road rage etc, but lots of horns going and car cutting across lanes constantly. Tracey was glad to hand the car back to Hertz after that and is looking forward to 10 days or so without driving. Thank God for GPS and for Tara (our Travel agent) who organised for us to drop the car at Newark airport, not JFK, that would have been horrendous. We headed out...

May 9, 2014 - The Apple.

Well a long day from London to Zurich to New York. This was always going to be stressful with only 40 mins changeover in Zurich. Were 25 mins late leaving Heathrow, I wasn't stesssed at all, well not much, well yes quite a bit. All went well and we made the connection. The flight to NY was very good,plane only half full, plenty of room to stretch out. Nice red wine too. Made the 8.5 hours fly..... Landed at 8 got straight through border protection, my they are friendly people, I am sure they must really like their jobs!! Today on the subway...
