Travel | New York City

Part two of our holiday was spent in New York, in the coldest temperatures that I think I have ever experienced.  It was bitter folks, bitter!  We had a great time though, and interest is definitely piqued.

  1. Wowzers! That looked so crazily cold. Looks like it didn't hold you back from sight-seeing in anyway though! xx

    1. It was the coldest I have ever been, including time spent up the mountain skiing! Was great though. It did limit us a little, we didn't go up any of the tall buildings or out to Staten Island and a couple of other things. I had wanted to go to NYC as long as I could remember though, so I was pretty stubborn! ☺

  2. It has been bitterly cold in the US! Despite the cold, your trip looks like it was so much fun. Did you pick up any fabric??

    1. So cold! I still actually can't believe how cold it was, and how good other people were at dealing with it; haha. I did indeed get some fabric, some fake fur for a snuggly rug, some brocade and two bits of silk. Lovely souvenirs!


Thank you for stopping by!
