About New York

As the city’s nickname would suggest, the Big Apple tempts you to take a bite of its vibrant, cosmopolitan atmosphere. Experience the diverse cultures of this city and its overpowering energy. You will want to explore every avenue.

Food and drink

The home of the bagel, you are spoilt for choice in the Big Apple. From burgers, pizzas, hot dogs and pastrami sandwich, to dining in one of the top restaurants. New York can deliver any cuisine from around the world. When the sun starts to go down most of the locals love to take a cocktail and the Cosmopolitan is first choice!

Shopping

Shops on Madison and Fifth Avenues attract the label-conscious, while Lower East Side and Greenwich Village are great for bargains. New York is a shopping haven and you can buy anything from designer clothes to costume jewellery.

New York, Las Vegas & Los Angeles – The dream itinerary

2020 was supposed to be a huge year for travel but obviously my plans have been put on hold. Today, Stefan and I should’ve been visiting Disneyland in California but instead, we’re in lockdown in separate houses. It’s hard to know what to post about in this crisis but I’ve decided to talk about my Multi-Centre trip to the USA as something to look forward to. As you may know, we were supposed to be in the US for three weeks now but we had to cancel. Thankfully, we managed to get about...

How to spend a weekend break in New York City

No city defines America quite like NYC. New York represents diversity, dreams, ambition, and wealth. Around every corner, you’re witnessing someone’s success story. Some have made it, while others are on their way. In short, it’s an exciting place to visit. However, the Big Apple’s vast number of attractions, restaurants, and bars makes planning an itinerary difficult. Plotting out activities for a week can be challenging, but what if you only have 48 hours?...

My favourite budget places to stay in New York

One of the most common questions I get from readers is if I can recommend them a good hostel to stay in New York that is not too expensive. There are a few decent budget places to stay in New York but forget about finding a cheap room in New York. For anything half decent, good location, clean -you’re looking at around $150-$200 for a private room. One way to save money in New York is by choosing to stay in a hostel. Based on my recent trip to the Big Apple, I’ve rounded up my 3 best...

10 things I’d do on a return trip to NYC in my 30’s

New York City is amazing at any age and I’ve heard it only get’s better the more you visit! This Summer marks 9 years since I flew to the USA to work at a Summer Camp for 3 months and then spend a month travelling around the US. Of course New York was high on my list to visit and a group of us from my Camp all went there after a fun week in Miami together. I’ve only returned to New York one time since which was for a few hours on a layover in April 2015. I remembered why I loved it the...
