This post has been a long time coming!! I posted back in December (OK, I actually didn't realise it was that long ago since I wrote about my first day in New York!) ... so if you need a recap check out that post here ... New York City, Day 1 Day 2 started extremely … Continue reading New York City 2018 – Day 2
In the months leading up to my birthday (November), my husband had been attempting to wind me up by saying he had organised something, I would be doing something on my birthday with a friend and after that we would be going away for a few days. He was super pleased with himself and kept … Continue reading My Birthday Surprise!
We were extremely grateful for a slightly later lay-in on day 3. An early flight on day 1 from the UK through to a late Northern Lights night followed by the Golden Circle tour and Blue Lagoon trip on day 2...we needed sleep! Day 3 started with hotel breakfast and wrapping up warm for a … Continue reading Iceland Day 3 – Snow and the City!

Being out so early meant we had time to casually wander around as shops generally weren't open until around 10am....and today was … Continue reading New York City – Day 3

The High Line wasn't necessarily something we had on … Continue reading New York City – Day 2
