The kids are asleep beside me as we hurtle through the sky. New York is well behind us now and we’re headed to our last stop, San Francisco. I could actually update this as we go as the plane has wifi on board. Of course you pay for the privilege but it’s pretty amazing never the less.
Not sure what we finished up with in NY. Tried some more food, I managed to have a hot dog in NY, a pizza in NY and NY cheesecake, so that’s some things I always wanted to do. There are so many places to eat. Some expensive (like the lobster paella we had) some not.
We stumbled across a market that took over 8th Ave from 42nd to the park. Apparently, like the Darkmoon Fairie used to, it pops up all over the city. I made it to the USS Intrepid museum. You might know it from Will Smith’s I Am Legend, where he tees off from the back of an airplane. It’s a WW2 Aircraft Carrier that is also a Air & Space museum. Here I managed to see a Shuttle, the Kennedy Space Centre is still waiting for theirs at the moment.
NY was nice to see, but I’m not sure we’d be back. I loved Central Park, but I’m not a shopper so didn’t really care for that. Mrs thought the prices were high after Outlet shopping in Vegas (previous trip to US) and Orlando. She also didn’t really like the busy nature of the place. I hate to think how cold NY could be in the middle of winter!
So we’re off to SF for a rest, any last minute shopping, before the last stretch home. SF is more appealing to us than LA, just didn’t really like LA last time. And a better paced place, it’s kinda like Melbourne.
