Well here it is, my first post on our long awaited holidy for anybody that might be interested!!
I will probably do a few posts as we saw such lot and it will be a record for myself to keep.
I hope I don't bore everyone to much!! :)
We had to be at Glasgow Airport at 6am for our 9 o'clock flight, this meant a very early start of 4am (yikes that's the middle of the night in my book). We made it and we were sitting around for quite a while so I went to duty free and bought myself a new bottle of my favourite perfume (Clinique's Happy, I love that perfume).
We were finally called for boarding and were soon on our way to the United States. It was a great flight and I can totally recommend United Airlines.
We even landed about half an hour early :))
We got train to Penn Station and walked the 20 blocks or so to our hotel, oohing and aahing as we walked.
I'm not a busy town type of girl and I wasn't that sure I would really like NY too much but boy I LOVED it. All of that hustle and bustle, the tall buildings and wonderful Central Park.
It was all just wonderful :))
Anyway I've got lots of pictures so I'll put some of them up.
I seemed to be looking up all the time
I love all the reflections in the buildings - great weather is always a benefit.
I wondered what all of these people were painting
It was this beautiful tree!!
Outside the Rockefella Centre in the evening.
The Empire State Building - awesome views from here.
We even went up to the 102nd floor :))
It looked like there was a restaurant on the top of this building.
The view from the 102nd floor.
Sunset from the Rockefeller Center

Flat Iron Building
We visited the Natural History Museum where we saw lots of these:
New York Library
where the original Winnie The Pooh and friends are kept - how cute are they? :))
There was so much we didn't get time to do and our two days in New York passed way too quickly and it was time to go and catch our Amtrak train to Boston!!!
to be continued :))
