Most of our time in New York was spent in mid/uptown but this was our final day so we went AWOL (to other nice places). First stop, Brooklyn Bridge. This day (funnily enough the one we were spending the majority of outside) was absolutely FREEZING but it didn't put us off - we wrapped up … Continue reading (AIN’T SEEN NOTHIN YET UNTIL YOU’RE) DOWNTOWN | DAY 5 | NEW YORK
This may be a slightly shorter blog than normal seeing as day 4 was a bit of a shopping day and I don't have the time to list all of the things that I purchased. What I will say is that I love Free People with all my heart. Sephora, you guys are pretty damn … Continue reading COMEDY AND CHEESECAKE | DAY 4 | NEW YORK
And suddenly, the third day was upon us. It came round very quickly and proved a point about making the most of your time. I think we had done pretty well so far but this day really showed you can always do more.

We've just realised we're next to the wrong Hilton. Slaps on the back all round. Anyways. Today we went back to the empire … Continue reading THE NIGHT BEFORE | TREK AMERICA
In case it's not apparent to you. That's the 30 rock theme song. And also my ringtone. I'm so glad my phone didn't go off during the tour of NBC. Yep. Today we went to Rockefeller centre. THIS STUFF KRAY. It was beaut. We went to 30 rock, then got a tour of the Rockefeller … Continue reading THE SEXIEST HOTEL IN AMERICA | TREK AMERICA
The Met, top of the rock and a Ron Swanson bobble head. Only in America.
Coming to you from a well air conditioned bench in the Metropolitan Museum of Art where we're having a lil sit down in order to rest our feet. Dying for a cup of tea. Sadly tea here is weird, as I've discovered - I've started going for Earl Grey tea as it's safer. It's our … Continue reading NEW YORK, NEW YORK | TREK AMERICA
