We had an early wake up call this morning as we had our 9/11 memorial museum tickets booked for 9am. If you plan on visiting the museum, I highly recommend the 9am slot – it’s the first slot and it’s great because for the first half hour there is almost no-one in the museum and you can really see everything without people getting in the way.
After almost 30 hours of traveling, we’ve finally made it to the big apple! The second leg of our trip felt very very long and I didn’t get much sleep.. It’s so uncomfortable trying to sleep on a plane!
It’s now less than 6 weeks until my brother and I are off on our American/Canadian adventure and it’s time to book some of the activities we are going to do outside of Contiki.
With only 2 days in New York City prior to the start of our Contiki, we are really limited as to what we’ll be able to do – especially as our first day in New York starts at 7.00am after two 9-hour flights! Yup, we land in New York at 7.00am and we wont be wasting any time in seeing as much as we can. To get from JFK Airport to our hotel in Chelsea, we’ve pre-booked a private car with Dial 7 because it seemed easier than a taxi and we like to have a set fare. Everywhere on the web says don’t even bother with a shared shuttle in NYC so we are listening!
