USA: 5 Reasons I Want To Return to New York

New York is a city that I could never get tired of. Mr. ESLT and I had both visited before we met each other and fallen in love with the Big Apple. Therefore, we knew that we had to return together. We took our first visit in May 2009 during a heat wave and we recently visited back in January this year, meaning we have visited in both summer and winter and I cannot make the call on which season is the best, as I loved both our visits equally. I very rarely return somewhere twice let alone a number…

USA: New York Day 5 – Scenery, Greenery & Stepping Back In Time

We woke early realising it was our last day in New York. Why did our time in the Big Apple have to go so fast? We had a fantastic time in such a fantastic city, we’d seen a lot of the major sights, we’d seen two great sporting events, we’d seen an amazing show on Broadway and we had eaten a lot of (probably too much) yummy food. We had made the most of every second and we were determined to make the most of our last day. As I drew back the curtains I was so relieved to see…

USA: New York Day 4 – All About Sex & Having Our Wishes Granted

Our Sunday in New York had been a day I had really been looking forward to. It was the day I got to meet Anisa, one of the bloggers behind Two Traveling Texans. We had interviewed Anisa and Katherine, the other Traveling Texan, back in October 2015 and since then Anisa and I had become friends and been in contact via the blogs, social media and email. As we were in New York, where she has lived for the past 12 years, it seemed stupid not to hang out together whilst we were there. Again, after a great night’s sleep…

USA: New York Day 3 – Feeling The Love & Remembering

Saturday morning in the Big Apple was considerably quieter than the previous week days, fewer people were dashing here and there, instead everything and everyone seemed to be moving at a slightly slower pace. We had a list of places that we were eager to tick off on day 3 of our New York trip. Day 1 and day 2 had taken their toll on our feet, so we decided today to try to and walk less and use public transport where possible. With the threat of snow we ensured we were dressed for the occasion and took extra layers in…

USA: New York Day 2 – Getting High & Visiting Friends

Following a full night’s sleep we woke just before sunrise eager to get out and explore New York further. After a great first day in the city we had ticked a number of attractions and sights off our itinerary; however we still had lots to do and see and were really excited for day 2 in the city. After a delicious and hearty breakfast at the Park Café, located in our hotel – The Wellington Hotel, we headed out into the iconic skyscraper lined streets. Wrapped up warmly to protect us from the January coldness, we wandered, mesmerised by the buildings…
