Sunset over New York

Back in December 2015, we took a trip to New York to see the Big Apple at Christmas time. We came away with a completely different impression compared to the one we went with, which was based upon years and years of TV shows and films.

It was great to see such an iconic place, and one of the most breathtaking moments was watching sunset fall upon Central Park. Nearly a year later, I have finally gotten around to uploading the time lapse video, so if you don’t want to make the journey yourself this Christmas, just sit back, sip some eggnog and watch this video to capture the magic of New York yourself.

Quirks of…USA

It’s quirks time!!  We are talking about USA Quirks in this post.  We know, we know, this has been a long time coming.  The previous quirks post was about Thailand and before that was the Quirks of Bolivia.

This is not surprising because they used to be part of the same country – High Peru.

Laughlin – Vegas…but not Vegas | Sin City’s Little Sister

Laughlin sits on the Nevada side of the Nevada/Arizona border, next to Bullhead City. The two cities and the two states are separated by the fast flowing, clear watered, Colorado river. Continue reading

Photo Friday: Around The World

This week’s Photo Friday is going to be a little bit different from the norm.  You have probably already seen our favourite photos from Chiang Mai (if not, go have a look!) and we are still there, having been working hard – so no new photos!

So, rather than leave you all in the lurch and not write a post for this week, we thought we would get in contact with some of our blogging friends to bring you some awesome photos from every continent – hence the title “Around The World”.

48 Hours in San Francisco

Forty-Eight hours in San Francisco is the first “48 Hours In” where we have genuinely experienced the rush of spending such a short time in one place.  We are usually there for around a week so that we can soak up the atmosphere and try a load of different places and find you, the reader, the best of the best.

Between leaving the farm, and catching our flight to Bangkok, we had 72 hours. In this time we needed to get to San Fran, experience all it had to offer us and have our bums in our seats on our trans-pacific flight.

Wow. Continue reading
