If you guessed we’re in the Big Apple, you’d be right!
We lucked out with the weather this weekend; it’s been warm and sunny with highs reaching 15-17C!! Who knew? Today is supposed to reach 20C! Peeling off layers is always a nice surprise.
We’ve been getting quite the workout too. No need for the hotel exercise room while staying in NYC. Walking and the subway have been our sources of transportation with the occasional cab when it’s midnight and our legs feel like bricks. I absolutely love to walk, so it’s been a nice break from regular workouts.
When we arrived on Saturday morning, we had a bit of a rocky start to our trip. We flew in on a prop plane on Continental Airlines and when we were boarding the plane they made everyone check “carry-on” suitcases under the plane. We weren’t thinking about our valuables in the carry-on because it caught us off guard, but once on the plane we immediately had a bad feeling about it. When we got to the hotel we discovered that our laptop (which was in Eric’s carry-on) was damaged badly. So now, I’m blogging on half a screen and the rest of the screen is super fuzzy. Doh! Hopefully we can get some sort of compensation from the airline, but I doubt it. So if you see a bunch of weird characters or typos, don’t blame me. ;)
Anyways, we’re staying at The Warwick Hotel. It’s an older hotel, but we got a great deal on it through Hotwire and saved a lot of money.
Then we were off on foot to explore! Eric’s work droid has come in very handy for Google Maps. ;)
Isn’t technology great? He was able to plan all our destinations on a map.
…such as Central Park:
We’ve been enjoying the photography on this trip as usual. :)
By the way, someone asked me where my boots are from. I recently picked them up at PAYLESS SHOES….I don’t usually have good finds there, but this season I did. The boots are made for walking….literally! My brown jacket is from Le Chateau. Both HQ pleather. ;)
Then we explored
Much more happened on Saturday, so a Part II will be coming up.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have vegan doughnuts to eat!
I can already tell those are babycakes donuts :) MY FAVORITE! Just nibbling on a cinnamon sugar one as I type :)
My absolute favorite vegan snack is hummus… Sooo many different flavours, and so many different things you can dip in it! The thought of it makes my mouth water! Have fun in NYC!
