New York - Thank You. We have had a thoroughly amazing 6 weeks.
As you can see if you have been reading my Restaurant Blog we have been eating at a load of amazing places from Michelin Star restaurant Daniel to the best burgers we ate at Burger Joint... and well the whole spectrum in-between.
To counter act the effects of six weeks of restaurant food my husband and I took our exercise routine quite seriously. I took 3 Pilates classes a week at and worked through a couch to 5k program. My husband got a temp membership at a gym and worked out with a trainer 3 times a week also. I really think all our efforts have paid off.
Despite all the food we still fit into our clothes and as a a bonus we both feel a lot stronger.
The shopping didn't go entirely to plan. Overall I was quite disappointed with the winter collections.
I like colour and what I found here was similar to the drab greys and blacks I sees everywhere in Zurich.
I already have a bulging wardrobe so its not the end of the world.
I did manage to acquire 2 fabulous new Michael Kors handbags and some running shoes so It wasn't a complete disappointment.
We generally just enjoyed 'being' in New York. There was no rush to do the tourist 'hot-spots' or fight with people wanting to go up the Empire State Building as we have been here many, many times before.
I've walked hundreds of kilometres according to my FitBit and made friends with the local dry cleaner/shirt laundry guy, the hotel staff.
We've enjoyed walks around Central Park and tea and cakes in the afternoon.
We've met up with friends for dinner who have come from destinations as close as Brooklyn and as far as Hong Kong, with Boston and Zurich in the middle.
We have crossed off more things to do from our list and we are ready to go home.
Of course I'm already planning our return - hopefully in the first quarter of 2015, but until our flights are booked those plans are just buzzing around in my head with the others plans I have for the next 'big' trip in two weeks to Tokyo.
