5 flights, 1 delayed train, 17 subway rides, 12 taxis, 92.56 miles walked (my legs are killing me), 16lb weight gain and we’re finally home.
It’s been a great two weeks, starting off in Toronto with the edge walk, indoor sky diving, Niagara falls, a bacon tour, segways, floatation, dine in the dark, medievil times, escape rooms and a haunted house.
Then onto Boston. I fell in love with Boston and really wish I’d had more time there. I don’t normally mention hotels in my posts but I just have to mention the Intercontinental Boston. The room was gorgeous and totally made our stay. Here we went on the duck tour, Ghosts and Graveyards tour, a day trip to Salem, tried and failed the flying trapeze and ate cannolis. I’ll be returning to Boston in the very near future for a longer visit.
And finally onto New York. This city is crazy! There are crowds and crowds of people walking everywhere. Cars and people don’t seem to follow traffic signs which led to us seeing a woman’s foot being ran over by a car! We started off this trip with a pizza tour in Brooklyn, Ripley’s believe it or not, Wicked on Broadway, the American Museum of Natural History, the open top bus tour, a walk around central park, a visit to the 9/11 memorial and Sleep no more. Posts on these to follow soon.
A few things I’ve learned from this trip:
- Don’t trust the weather forecast! We packed for expected 25-29 degree weather and ended up having to buy coats in New York due to a hurricane on its way there.
- Even if you walk 7-10 miles a day you can still gain a lot of weight on holiday if you eat whatever you want.
- Boston is beautiful, they clean the streets between 2am and 7am.
- My love for escape rooms. David enjoyed them as well and a great way to spend time bonding as a couple.
Many bucket list items crossed off, and a few updates still to come. Unfortunately I went straight back to work the day after we got home so still jet lagged but they’ll be up soon 🙂
Happy Bucket Listing
