Tucked away on an island deep inside the steamy depths of Miami is a lush tropical jungle. It holds some very rare types of animals. One in particular, I had never seen before! The Liger.

It’s a beautiful sunny day. I am sitting in Serenity, the 21+ pool area. There are screams from the nearby waterslide and snoring from an old man on the deck chair beside me. I am overlooking the back of the boat. I can see Nassau, Bahamas & Paradise Island with a very large and very pink hotel known as Atlantis. My heart is pumping slowly. My belly is full. It’s so nice to sit and do nothing after two weeks of road tripping. There’s palm trees swaying gently in the ocean breeze. Seagulls circling the boat searching for a free meal. The water is bright aqua-marine and constantly laps at the boat enticing me in, but I’ve already swam today and yesterday and for now I am content to sit on my lounge chair with my kindle to one side and my laptop to the other and let you know about my musings of my cruise through the Bahamas.
So we took a 2 week road trip from New York to Florida. Here are all the places we stayed so that when you are planning the trip you have a one stop shop!
New York subways are many things, murderous hellholes is not one of them. They are dirty. They are noisy. They are loud. They are mostly stairs with few elevators making the journey down into them (with a pram) an adventure and a half....
So here we are in USA with one of the greatest teams playing basketball. The games pricing changed based on who they were playing and with Christmas and New Year thrown in, there were few and far between we actually had time to see. Finally one night we decided to book tickets.
I am not sure when the dream started. Maybe it was when I was much younger, maybe it wasn’t until New Years Eve the movie hit the cinema. Whenever it was I knew long before we got to the USA that I wanted a). A White Christmas and b). To see the ball drop in Times Square on New Years Eve.
For many people Central Park is the place to visit in New York, followed by the Museum of Natural History, so of course it was on our list of things to do.
Typical tourist things in New York - the ones you all know about. Empire State Building, Times Square, Statue of Liberty, Rockefeller Plaza, Dylans Candy Store & FAO Swartz.
