New York New York

I’ve never been to the States before, even though you could never tell with an accent like mine. My parents on the other hand, have been lots of times… including two road trips East Coast and West Coast. I’m a tad jealous. Okay, more than a tad. I want to go, but I’m pretty sure my bank will scream no.

New York

The last time my parents were in New York, they only spent 2 days roaming around. My mom would love to go back to New York to explore the entire city and agrees that you really need more than 2 days. So… they’ve decided to go back either later this year or next year. I’m trying to get an invite, it would be rude not too, right?

I keep dropping little hints in about the best vacation spots in & around New York, the places I’ve love to visit within New York and all the restaurants I want to try that I’ve seen on TV (damn you Man vs Food damn you!). Have they listened yet? No. Guess I have to work on them some more… unless they are reading this blog post *waves*

Saying that, my dad is thinking about taking part in the New York Half Marathon, so I could tag along to support him, right? It would only be fair… just to give him the support and not to borrow his credit card at all. Nope, not at all. I’m liking the sound of this already…

I love exploring and I’m pretty sure I could get lost in New York for an entire day with my camera. It just looks so pretty & is one of my Top 10 Must See Destinations. Japan & China being the next on my exploration list.

What city do you want to explore?

    Moscow or St Petersburg. But New York remains my spiritual home.

    NYC is definitely one of my favorite places. Been there numerous times and always find something new and exciting to do. But, my absolute favorite thing to do in NYC is take a walk on a cold Autumn morning to the local Starbucks, grab a bagel from the cart near a park, then sit and people watch. As for restaurants in NYC — dying to get into Rao’s. Been trying since 2001.

    China? I love food too much. Was in China almost a week a couple of years ago and swore I was at a fat camp. I lived off of white rice and walked for miles a day. I can’t eat food with bones… or a face! Ew!

    I think your parents should take you! :)

    That sounds amazing! Maybe not a bagel for me though haha hotdogs all round!

    I don’t think I could eat bones or a face but there are lots of other alternatives if you hunt them down :D I’d go there mainly for the food! :D
