As if the almost 32,000 steps wasn't enough on the day before, our last day in New York was more walking. I honestly wouldn't do it differently! That said, maybe we'll experience the train system or a ride in a yellow cab one day but walking around such an amazing city is great ... there's … Continue reading New York City 2018 – Final Day
Word of warning - this is a long post - you may want to make yourself a cuppa before you even start!! 😛 Having visited New York for the first time in 2017, we had a good idea of where we would want to go to show the kids what we saw last time. I … Continue reading New York City 2018 – Day 3
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
22nd November - a very early and massively surreal start to the day with a 4am alarm ready to get up and ready, drop our cases at the airport, head through security and into Duty Free. I am an anxious flyer without a doubt and that anxiety starts before security. There's no reason for it, … Continue reading New York City 2018 – Day 1
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!
Day two in Iceland was going to be one very long day! Getting up at 6am for breakfast and ready for an 8.30am pick up for the 'Golden Circle Tour'. The Golden Circle is a route around Southern Iceland starting and ending in Reykjavik and includes stops at three iconic landmarks. Daylight hours in … Continue reading Iceland Day 2 – Golden Circle Tour & Blue Lagoon
I am rubbish when it comes to surprises and keeping them a secret! This one though, I have to say, I was rather chuffed with myself over. My husband has always wanted to see the Northern Lights, so for his 40th Birthday, I booked a trip to Iceland! On his birthday I had wrapped … Continue reading Iceland Day 1 – chasing the Northern Lights
The one shop that I couldn't wait to get to in New York was Sephora! Knowing the brands they sell are not necessarily available in the UK meant I was likely to be hunting out any Sephora store I could find and just visiting them all! Haha! I had a few items on a wishlist … Continue reading Sephora Haul!
Our final day in New York wasn't quite as much of an early start as the other days had been so we packed our cases after breakfast then checked-out, leaving our cases with the Bell-staff for the day as we headed out on a walk to the Intrepid Museum. One of the main attractions that … Continue reading New York City – Final Day
