New York – Day 1, Part 2
Today I’m continuing my long overdue series on our New York itinerary.
After our first stop at the WTC memorial which you can read about here, we took the metro to our next stop – the Grand Central Terminal.
Day 1, Part 1 – New York
So today let’s start my holiday recap with our first official day in New York.
You can read about our (mis)adventures getting to New York here. We finally reached our hotel at about 4am still wide awake and bushy tailed (time zones are devious indeed). We slept for a few hours and woke up early, refreshed and ready to immerse ourselves in the city.
Our travel strategy
And so we are officially back from our brief spell away. Our trip proved to be a jampacked, hectic holiday.
I have had a few requests for details of our visit. So over the next few weeks I will be sharing what we did on our trip in the hopes that it may be of some help to anyone planning a New York or DC trip any time soon.
Today’s post will give you some insight on how we plan and organize our travels. As I’ve mentioned before, it may seem like anarchy to the meticulous planners out there. But over the years we’ve hashed out a system that seems to work for us.
What New York taught me in one night
Time zones are funny things. We left the UAE yesterday to reach New York today. But when we got here it’s still yesterday! Trippy, no?
Anyway… our trip got off to a rather adventurous start. The past few hours have made me reflect that in all our travels we have been blessed with more than our fair share of smooth sailing. We’re barely into this trip and already I have learnt that we too often take things for granted.
