This elevated park runs from 34th street to Gansevoort Street (below 14th street) and is absolutely amazing. This is my 2nd time exploring the High Line. My first time was a year ago when I went for an early morning run – as did several other people. The High Line is a public park built […]
I think it was in 2016 that the famous Danish chef, Claus Meyer, opened a huge food place at Grand Central Station called Great Northern Food Hall and a fine dining restaurant called Agern. I’ve seen the online documentary on the Danish TV channel DR1 where they showed how Claus Meyer built and started this […]
I absolutely LOVE this hotel. My husband and I’ve stayed here 3 times within the last year and twice just this month (Sept. 2017), so by now it feels very familiar. And I like the neighborhood a lot. It’s just as good these two times as the first time. During our 2nd visit, we stayed […]
From Royal Chundu in Zambia, we head out on an interesting trip, crossing the Zambezi River on the Kazungula Ferry (it’s really just a boat) right where the 4 countries of Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia meet. We pass through parts of Botswana and the Kasane Regional District Immigration Office and Customs Services. From there […]
After a delayed flight from Nelspruit Airport (due to heavy mist), we arrive at Livingstone Airport a few hours later than scheduled. This is the only place during our African trip where we have to buy a tourist visa upon arrival. There are 2 different types of visa, and not really feeling sure of which […]
From Timbavati we drive about 3.5 hours to get to Sabi Sand where Londolozi Game Reserve is located. It’s a pretty scenic drive as we pass through villages, towns and hilly landscape and our driver is a freelance tour guide, so he keeps us entertained the whole way.
After a few days of relaxing and eating (!) in Johannesburg, it’s time to continue out South African trip. For the next 9 nights, we have a well-planned itinerary that was put together by our travel agent at Giltedge Golf & Safari:
I have the feeling that Joburg (Johannesburg) has a lot to offer when it comes to food – good food. Restaurants seem plentiful and you can basically eat anything there. We ask our hotel’s manager where we should go for dinner if we want to eat well in Johannesburg.
It’s Sunday in Johannesburg, South Africa and my husband (Anders) and wondering where the best place to spend the day is, we decide to go to a local market in town. After a hearty breakfast at our hotel (The Residence), our driver takes us to the market. It’s just a quick 10 minute drive and […]
“To be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others” – Nelson Mandela, June 1999
My husband and I arrive at Tambo Intl. airport in Johannesburg after an incredibly long trip from Punta Cana via Montreal and London. After a few hectic months of work, we are ready for a few days of relaxing before we continue on our South African dream safari.
Last year I went on an amazing 7-night Eastern Caribbean cruise with my husband and family on the biggest cruise ship in the world – Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas. We traveled from December 10 – 17, 2017 from Ft. Lauderdale – Nassau (Bahamas) – Charlotte Amalie (St. Thomas) – Philipsburg (St. Maarten) and […]
The elevator takes us to the lobby and front desk on the 3rd floor of the building. As soon as we come out, it’s like stepping into a hip lounge with dimmed lights and nice background music. The lady at the front desk is friendly and she asks us if we’d like something to drink; […]
In New York City there’s a neighborhood called Curry Hill and if you want Indian food, this is the place to go. One night we went to Bhatti Indian Grill on 100 Lexington Ave (27th St.). According to a Google search, this restaurant serves authentic North Indian cuisine including kebabs & regional specialties.
If you’re not a fan of dusty museums and someone wants to drag you to one, you should really insist on going to the American Museum of Natural History! I’d dare say that anyone will find it interesting to visit. My husband is practically allergic to museums and he even thought it was an interesting […]
Of the few musicals that I’ve ever seen in my life, Wicked is the best Broadway musical I’ve ever seen! This is the untold story of the witches of Oz and of what happened long before Dorothy clicked the heels of her red shoes and said “there’s no place like home”.
Chinatown is another neighborhood in New York City that you just have to visit. When you finally hit this part of Manhattan, everything suddenly changes and it’s like you’re literally stepping into China.
Take a subway ride to Lower Manhattan. Riding the subway is easy, fast and cheaper than taking a taxi. As a tourist in NYC, Lower Manhattan is one of the places you must visit – and won’t regret.
When you’re a tourist and to you go to New York City, you of course must go to Times Square. It’s a really curious place. The very definition of the phrase bright lights – big city.
I’ve been wanting to see The Lion King for the last couple of years and now the time had finally come! I love Broadway musicals and after hearing lots of amazing reviews and comments about The Lion King, my expectations were through the roof.
