Mood: Singing "New York, New York!"
Start spreading the news. We’re leaving on Halloween. We want to be a part of it, New York, New York!!! My gorgeous man and me are longing to stray right through the very heart of it – New York, New York!!! We want to wake up in a city that never sleeps, and find we’re king (and queen) of the hill; top of the heap!
Yes, folks, J and I have paid for our trip to New York! Woo hoo!
We fly out of Sydney on the morning of 31 October, and land in NYC around 5pm on the same day. 31 October is also known as Halloween, and from what the little I know, the Yanks are almost fanatical about celebrating this occasion. We can’t wait to be part of the festivities!
We’ll be flying with Qantas – most direct flight at the most reasonable price. We still have to get off the plane and be cavity searched at Los Angeles, but then we get back on the same plane from the same terminal to continue our journey to New York.
We’ll be staying at the Manhattan Broadway Hotel – right in the heart of everything – we’re told by people who have been to NYC that it is very centrally located, putting us not far from all the tourist-y places we must explore while we are there.
I’m so excited by this trip! We paid for the tickets on Saturday and felt our heads spin with excitement, and today, when I hit the "Book" button for the hotel and handed over our credit card details, I held my breath, and only let it out again when I saw the confirmation notification. The head spins started then!
OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG!!! We are going to New York!!! We are going to New York!!! SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
