Today was about shopping, revisiting the high line, eating cookie dough and drinking tiny pints in the oldest Irish pub in New York City. Excellent day out!
Day five in New York City and it was a day full of highs. Starting out with a dollar slice pizza (always a high), followed by the high line, and finally the news from high up the Rockerfella Building. So much walking but also a whole load of fun.
After three days in New York so far we finally made it to Times Square. We got on a tour bus today and learnt a lot more about the city. We still walked about seven miles but it was a lovely day out and the temperature was less than 30 degrees which was a bonus.
Another hot hot day but it’s going to be a lot cooler tomorrow so we wanted to make the most of it. We got the ferry to Staten Island today to see The Statue of Liberty and get a little bit of shopping done whilst there. We managed to walk a bit less today, butContinue reading “22/05/22 – Staten Island day trip”
It was absolutely roasting in New York today! We ended up walking about 15 miles around Manhattan and we’re now quite exhausted. But it was an excellent day in the heat, even if we did have to move from shade to shade. We saw a lot of Central Park and ate some great food. DayContinue reading “21/05/22 – A central park day”
We’re in New York! We’ve had a really great (and very very long) first day. We flew here this morning, then spent the whole day wandering round, taking in the sights and sounds before finally getting back into bed 22 hours after getting out of bed this morning. It’s time for a well earned sleep!
After over two years we’re finally going to New York! We’ve done the first leg of the journey, getting to Heathrow. Despite living in the same city, it took us 2.5 hours to get here! But we’ve made it, now it’s time to relax!
It’s been lovely and warm here in London recently, which has been a welcome change from the cold front we had for the first part of the year! However this evening it seems to have reached it’s climax, as whilst I write this I can hear the rain thrashing against the window, the rumble ofContinue reading “18/05/22 – The breaking storm”
Last run before my holiday! Decided to give myself (mostly my knees) a bit of a break so that’s me done for the next week and a bit. But it was a lovely run to finish off with! 5km in 28 and a half minutes. Pretty pleased with that, I’m definitely getting faster even ifContinue reading “17/05/22 – Morning run sunshine”
In a bid to get some sod’s law on our side, we bought new rain coats for our upcoming holiday! Now if it rains we’ll be happy to use our new coats, or hopefully because we bought new coats it won’t rain! This week is my last on my current project so it’s busy tryingContinue reading “16/05/22 – New holiday coat!”
