Well, it's been about eight years in the wilderness, but finally, a hungry man is returning to one of his favourite cities on the planet. New York. I'm heading there this coming weekend, and the best part is that I'll be returning with someone who hasn't been to the city since the late 80s! Yes, the latecomer to the New York City party is my sister, and I can't wait to see her reactions to just how much the city has changed since her last foray to Times Square in 1988.
The travel itinerary is pretty simple: walk, eat and shop. Of course for me, it really is about eating, and I will be sharing those tasty morsels soon in upcoming posts. I had made reservations for certain spots, but honestly, I think I'll just see what happens when we get there. Sometimes surprises can be a good thing.
Honestly, this trip could not come at a better time. The itch to travel was getting unbearable, plus with recent personal events that weren't so great, it was just the right time to escape and return to a place that always made me happy.
Now lets keep those fingers crossed that the weather will be kind to my sister and I. If not, it's ok, we're still going!
Adventures in New York eating is coming up next!
