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…

Guest Post: USA: New York ‒ A Story About the Foodie Mecca

Ahhh, New York! The city that never sleeps! New Yorkers might not love wasting time on sleeping, but they sure adore some good food and setting trends in gastronomy. If you think they already used up every trend in the world, think again. Here are some of the latest trends every New Yorker is going crazy about.

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…

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…

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…

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…

USA: New York Day 1 – Uptown, Downtown, All Around Town

We had been planning our return trip to New York for a long time and had devised a pretty full on itinerary before we even stepped foot in the city. Even though we have visited together before, it was back in 2009, therefore even though we have visited a number of the attractions before, it’s hard not to visit them again when you are in striking distance of them. We…

USA: The Wellington Hotel New York, Midtown On A Mid Range Budget

New York is a sprawling city. Therefore, it is important to base yourself somewhere central. Once you have decided on the neighbourhood, the next thing to do is decide on your accommodation. A quick booking.com search will reveal that there are hundreds to choose from. Hotels in New York can be expensive and that fact may actually put people off visiting the city in the first place. Having been to…

USA: Sex And The City Tour with On Location Tours, New York

I remember the first time I ever saw Sex And The City. I think that is when my love affair with New York started. It first aired when I was 15 and to be honest I was probably too young to watch it, but if you have ever seen it you will understand what an amazing show it is and looking back it taught me a lot about sex, relationships and the…

USA: 6 Of The Best in New York with CityPASS – Is It Worth It?

Having been to New York a number of times before, it may seem a little odd that we opted for the CityPASS as we have actually visited three of the attractions which are included before. However, once in the City it is hard to resist the lure of certain places, plus it had been 8 years since we had last visited, so why not revisit them? If it’s your first…

USA: Hopping Off & Hopping On With Big Bus Tours in New York

New York is a big city, 468.9 sq miles to be precise, and there is so much to see. If you are only visiting for a few days the likelihood is you will want to see as much as possible during your stay, especially the iconic buildings that litter the New York skyline. There are a number of ways you can get around the city and during our recent visit we…

USA: Visit New York In January If You’re Looking For A Post Christmas Pick Me Up!

When people think of New York they often envisage the winter wonderland that we have seen on the TV and in movies all our lives. However, if you have ever been to New York at Christmas time or even New Year, you will know how ridiculously expensive and busy it can be and often not as magical as it is portrayed. Having visited at that time of year before, we…

USA: New York, Broadway Bucket List

I love New York and I love musicals, so combining the two is a dream come true for me. The fact that we are heading across the pond for a week in January means I get to indulge in my love for the amazing city that never sleeps and (hopefully) take in a show or two (or 10 – I wish). The last time we were in New York was…

USA: New York Newbie?

So it turns out the Green Eyed Monster has come to visit! I hate him. He always raises his big, fat, ugly head when friends and family tell me about their upcoming travel plans. Both my Brother-in-Law and work colleague/friend have booked trips to the States this coming May. Both are jumping on a plane and making the 7 hour journey across the pond and are starting in the Big…
