Planning to wake up in a city that doesn’t sleep…

Manhattan Mid-town Skyline at NightIt was one of those moments when you think ‘why not?’ and instead of just thinking, you do it.

What began as a stopover on our way to cruising up the Inside Passage is now a dedicated two weeks in New York City next May.

It’s all a matter of time and funding (gotta watch those potentially grumpy bank managers). We could stay home and save for the longer trip. Or we could ditch the habit of planning epic journeys we never get around to taking…

Some people say two weeks in NYC is too long, some say it’s not long enough.

Finding out for ourselves is going to be half the fun…

Meanwhile, we’re going to have to stop singing ‘New York, NEW York’ at the top of our lungs or we’ll frighten the neighbours. And the wild turkeys – but that’s another story.
