A Salute to New York City

Well, now that this post has gone live it means that I’m currently trying to sleep or eat in the belly of a shiny flying machine. I’m on my way to one of my favourite places in the world, New York City.

Getting there is no taxi ride for us. We practically live on the opposite side of the globe, as far away from NYC that’s possible without being from space. It’ll take 3 flights and over 24 hours of continuous travelling before we arrive in the big apple. Then it’ll be straight out of our hotel into the lights of Times Square.

Another cool fact is that to get there, we actually need to go back in time. That means that when I left home today it was yesterday in New York, and when I get to New York today it will be tomorrow back home. I guess it’s the closest I’ll come to time travel (except for my books).

It’s been a while since we visited, 15 years in fact, and a lot has happened in NYC since then, so it will be great to catch those famous sites again, along with some new ones. The Statue of Liberty (missed out last visit), the Empire State Building, Times Square, Broadway, Central Park, and the 9/11 Memorial is on top of our list. It will be a time to reflect on an event that shook everyone around the world.

I know there have been many songs about New York over the years, and I thought it was the perfect time to share some of my favourites. So, please grab a coffee, sit back, relax and enjoy. And if anyone reading this will be in NYC this weekend, I’ll look out for you 🙂

Paloma Faith – New York

This is one of my all-time favourite tunes by an amazing artist.

 Frank Sinatra – New York, New York

This is the most famous of all!

 See you all in NYC!

  1. I’m sooo jealous you’re going to NYC, Steve! That’s on my bucket list. Hope you have a wonderful and safe journey there, and enjoy your time traveling! LOL! Hope you brought warm clothes too! 😉

    1. We had a wonderful time with lovely crisp weather.


  2. If you get a chance, visit Rockafeller Center. It should be decked out in holiday style now and you’ll get a 360 degree view of the city from the Top O’ The Rock. Central Park on one side, Staten Island on the other. Safe travels.
