New York, New York!


 If this post goes up as scheduled (and the flight does too) I will be up in the air on my way to New York City as you read this.. and did I mention I couldn’t be more excited? I don’t know if you’ve noticed but I’ve not been able to think/talk about much else for about 2 months.. Christmas was really just a formality but it’s finally upon us and all being well by tomorrow I’ll be able to share my first few snapshots. My plan is to do a bit of a photo diary while we’re there and post something more substantial when we get back.. I’m sure some of you couldn’t be less interested but for those who are (as I would be) I will also be vlogging and hopefully uploading on a daily basis but again this will depend on time and internet connectivity.. I’m not going to be sitting up nights editing while Lee sleeps like i did in Vegas.. I feel like we’re only going to be there for 5 minutes this time so I want to absorb as much as possible of my favourite city in the world. I will definitely have some kind of internet access regardless so you can expect some instagram/twitter updates while I’m away even if I can’t update my blog. If you think of anything ‘must do/see/shop’ in the next few days don’t forget to leave a comment or tweet me and yeah.. I’ll see you on the other side!

Here are some photos from our last trip in 2010 for those who can never see enough of other peoples travel pics – I LOVE this kind of thing and looking for them on google images has led me to so many blogs I now follow and love so if this is the first time we’re meeting, HELLO!! I promise I’m usually not this manic!

    Great post! Loved looking at those pictures.

    I’m so jealous! New York looks amazing. I’m hoping to go for my 21st birthday.

    Did you dye your hair midway through your trip last time? haha, I swear it looks blond at the beginning and then brown!

    I hope you have an amazing time (and I’m sure you will!)

    Im so jealous,lol. Have a wonderful time. New York City is my most favourite place in the world.

    Looking at your photos makes me so jealous that you’re there right now! I visited NY in 2009 and loved it but there were so many more things I wanted to see but couldn’t. I am doing a year abroad to Massachusetts next year so I will hopefully be able to visit again then! xx

    I am going back to New York in November and I am stalking all your photos to keep me going through work this week and it’s getting me excited. Such brilliant photos! Did you have to travel far to see the basket ball game? It’s something we really want to do bit I’ve heard it’s really pricey, can you remember the rough price you paid?

      off the top of my head I feel like the tickets were $70 each.. I’ve been twice but both years ago. Worth going if you want to feel like a local, very cool and they make interesting for non-basketball fans too. If you drop on the right time in the schedule and they’re playing at home then they will be at Madison Square Garden which is very central

    Those pictures look amazing! My sister and I are planning our first trip to America and have chosen New York as our destination, are there any hotels you’d recommend or must-see places to visit for first timers? Also, did you go with a travel agent or organise it yourself? Thank you 🙂

      I always book it myself through expedia.. tends to be cheaper but you also have more control. 2 hotels I’d recommend would be Park Central and The Americana

      • 29 July, 2016 / 6:57 pm

        Wow, thanks very much, I’ll check those out! I completely forgot about Expedia, I shall have to look at that to see if I can book hotel and flight together maybe, then we’re not constrained by the limits of the package holiday and can choose what to do on each day. Thank you very much!
