New York, New York

As a big fan of most things American, heading to the other side of the Atlantic has always been high on my bucket list. I couldn’t wait to ramble around and take in the hustle and bustle of the “capital of the world”.

Our two weeks in New York were an inspiring and humbling experience, living in a city that is and has been home to so many people of all colours and creed, has so much history and has also seen such success and tragedy.

Our first day was a very early start, thanks to the jet-lag, but our first glimpse of the city fog free was incredibly rewarding!

This post is a little taster of what we got up to during that time and we also thought it would be helpful to include the links for the food spots we recommend. We’ll put up a bunch more posts with a lot more detail in the near future!
