I had to be in the lobby at 2.30am for my shuttle to the airport. I ran into one of the guys who was staying on tour and I thought he was only just getting in but he just nicked out to get something to eat.
I had no problems with the flight except my suitcase was over weight so I had to put extra in my carry on to avoid paying a fee. That was a bit of a worry since I still had more things to buy!!
I slept pretty much the whole way on the plane as I was exhausted. We packed so much into that tour.
I could not believe my eyes as we started our decent into New York
Didn't take long to collect my bags which was good. I made my way to the transportation area and decided on a cab as it was a flat rate. Plus I couldn’t be bothered waiting for a shuttle.
I loved New York already!! I have always loved the city as in back home in Melbourne. But was one huge city!!
I arrived at the hotel at about 4pm. I went to check in and guess who was at reception. Megan!!
She waited for me to get checked in and to our excitement I was in the same room as her.
She was about to go for a walk but waited for me and we went together.
I was still so tired but had to make the most of my time in New York.
We started to head towards Central Park
We watched some of the people skating in Central Park. There were also some people roller-skating with some music. There were a few people standing around watching them. Next we headed towards 5th Avenue. There were more people putting on a show for the watchers. This time it was some people kinda break dancing and stuff.
It was starting to get dark at this point. We headed back towards the hotel as we were both pretty tired.
We had to have our pre-tour meeting this evening so we went to fill in some forms and then wanted to get some tea. Let’s just say the tour guides seemed rather interesting!! Me and Megan walked out pissing our selves laughing. We kept saying we wanted Cap!! They ended up being pretty cool.
We went and got some maccas.
I took a nap which turned into pretty much going to bed.
Megan had gone to meet Sylvia who called the room looking for me but got the other Megan!!
