New York, New York!

After our adventures around Costa Rica, we thought it was about time we swapped one jungle for another (much more concrete) one. So we packed our bags one more time and headed off to the city that never sleeps!

We arrived mid afternoon and so headed for a relaxed wander downtown towards Union Square where we'd heard there was a lively food market. Not to be ones to shirk the idea of a tasty bite to eat, we were delighted to find the market in full swing!

The chilly contrast between New York and Costa Rica meant that we were simply forced to warm ourselves with cups of hot 'cider' (much more like what us Brits would call spiced apple juice!). I mean, it was a matter of survival! It also happened to be one of the nicest drinks I'd had in a long time!

Soon, the evening started to close in and so we headed back to the hotel for an early night but not before spotting an iconic New York building.

Thoroughly worn out from the day's travelling and our first glimpses of New York, we slipped into bed, eagerly awaiting the next day when our city exploits would start in earnest!

  1. Definitely two very different jungles! Hot cider is one my favorite things about winter :-)
