Where I stayed
JFK Airport Jamaica.

We woke in the New Yorker Hotel in heart of New York City for our last day in the States, we visited the Rockefeller Centre and the viewing platform called top of the rock.  This gave us a good view of the Empire State Building and also central park.

After visiting the Rock, we moved on to walk around Central Park, walking along the outside of the Central Park Zoo, and revisiting on foot some of the places we had seen on the tour on the second day of the Holiday.

We then walked back to the Hotel, stopping off for a late Brunch before making our way back on the Long Island Rail Road back to Jamaica, and onto the Air Tram back to terminal 4 at JFK.

The flight left about an hour late, and because of that, we left at the busiest time for the airport, so took another hour to taxi to the runway.  However, the pilot managed to make an hour of that back, by the time we landed.

Strange to be back in the UK, certainly we noticed two things straight away, it was colder - given it was over 100 a week earlier in Virginia Beach, and secondly how rude people are compared to the US, its really disappointing when you notice how polite virtually everyone in the US is, even in the most stressful situations.

After 3 weeks in the US, we have done so much and seen so much, from climbing to the top of the Statue of Liberty, to the power and noise of the Nascar races, to the beaches of Virginia and South Carolina to the history of Virginia and Chesapeake Bay.  There were some real moments of the Holiday we will remember for ever, there are a couple of bits we will want to forget, but everything makes you appreciate how lucky you are to have the opportunity to experience so many things. 

So to the next adventure.

Thanks for following us on our travels this year, hope you have enjoyed the trip 'virtually' as much as we have.  Some of the pictures from the final day in New York.

Lots of Love
