Monday 20th January

As I prepare to go to New York at the end of this week I have been trying to sort out a brief itinerary for the 5 nights that we are there. One of the main sights I am keen on seeing is the 9/11 memorial and the Empire State building. I am a big fan of Friends, so I have always wanted to see the building that they stay in, even though the series was filmed in LA. We are staying just a street away from Times Square, so we are very central to all the sights. Myself and my boyfriend are big foodies so we are very keen to try as many restaurants/ styles of food as we can during our stay. There are two main foods I want to try; one is a proper New York Bagel and the other is a corn dog. I am also very keen to visit China Town to try some authentic cuisine. The weather is very cold now and it has been lightly snowing over the weekend which I am very excited for as I have always wanted to visit New York in the snow. We also plan to either visit Jersey Gardens or Woodbury Commons for a spot of shopping during our stay.

If anyone has any sights or restaurants that they can recommend, then please let me know! We like all types of food. We plan to visit Gallaghers Steakhouse for my birthday which is on Saturday, they have a 3-course lunch time deal which looks really good, so we are excited to try this too, and possibly a few cocktails to celebrate too.

The CIS team all helped me celebrate early on Saturday as I had my 21st party at Hugo’s here in Moffat. A great night had by all and just the start of the celebrations.
