New York City: Part 2

Central Park is just as gorgeous as I hoped it would be…and much, much larger! (umm hello, cute kissing romantic couple!) The park was packed with people out walking, running, skating, biking, and rollerblading all enjoying the unseasonably warm temperatures. I think it reached about 18C (64F) on Saturday! We both had to rip off […]
