First, I must start this post with a disclaimer; this is not a paid review in any way. I chose to fly Hawaiian Airlines on my most recent trip to the states as they were the cheapest and I also paid to upgrade to ‘Extra Comfort’.
I’m currently sitting at Honolulu Airport, waiting for our next flight to New York City. Our first flight was delayed by 30 minutes and then again by another 45 minutes so we had a very long time to wait before leaving Auckland!
So I am currently sitting at Auckland Airport at our departure gate waiting to board our flight for the first leg of our long journey to New York! Our flight has been delayed by 30 minutes so it’s a bit longer that we have to wait.. Approximately 2 hours until we can board. At least we get priority boarding being on extra comfort.
It’s the final countdown now! I’ve finished my last day at work for 4 whole weeks and now all I have to worry about is packing my suitcase!
I even went out today and got my nails done for my trip (yes, I’m one of those girls haha!) But they look great so I’m very happy!
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!
