When vacations take you on a journey you don’t expect.

As expats we have a love for travel. A love for getting out and about in a new place, discovering the hidden gems, experiencing the tourist attraction, eating the fabulous local food and exploring everything the city has to offer.

Hubby and I are different types of travelers. I am a planner, like to plan out what we are doing, where we staying and the ins and outs of the trip beforehand.

Hubby is not he is more laid back, he always has somewhere to stay but no set plans. More fly by the seat of your pants.

Both types of travelers have there pro and cons. Plan it out and you won’t miss out but do something unexpected and it may be even better.

So today we had plans to bike ride Central Park. A must if you ever come to NYC! Hubby thought it was a nice little bike ride, let just say at mile 6, I was rethinking the idea. But it was amazing! Though my butt may not like it tomorrow.

NYC is a city full of fun, broadway, big things, beautiful parks, great food, even better shopping and interesting tourist attraction.

Yesterday blog was about finding the character of NYC and what defines it. I don’t think it is the Brooklyn bridge, Empire State Building, fifth ave, time square or Staten Island. I think it is the people! It is such a multi cultural city, where people from all over the world gather to see local sights and experiences. The people make the city!

This vacation has been amazing and yet unexpected as anywhere has tourist attractions but not everywhere has character. New York City definitely has character.

Let the journey continue….
