First day in New york today I arrived yesterday after the most amazing flight. I sat down in my cluttered seat no leg room and 2 people either side of me and i thought uggghhh its gonna be a long flight. Then one of the staff approached me and asked if i was 'miss Calvert' then told me to come with him. He was so serious and made me nervous even though i kinda knew what he was going to say. The passengers were all looking at me collecting my stuff too which was embarrassing...... it really looked like i was getting thrown off haha. The staff said they didnt want to alert the passengers that I was getting upgraded so thats why he was very firm with me ha. They had apparently called my name out in the airport but i didnt hear. I sat down and was given a hot flannel and a food/wine menu. I had a 3 course meal a glass of wine,juice,tea, watched 'Unknown' and 'Just go with it'. I then had a sleep for an hour on my recliner chair with a duvet and then finally woke up to tea, scones and a sandwich. The flight went so quick was great because you could eat and drink as much as u wanted i actually wanted to stay on longer. Oh i also got a spa bag with elemis cream,lip balm and body lotion i loved it
I'm staying at hostel international I would defo stay here again its really clean, air conditioning and clean towels daily. To inform you with what is happening at the hostel for the week they put graffiti on the walls, it looks really good very New York. Finding it a little hard at the min to make friends as people are coming and going so fast. Think this will change when i get to my new hotel (skyline) and meet contiki.
I went to Times Sqaure and 1000 people were doing yoga like it was the norm, made me laugh. I spent 22 dollars to go up the Rockfeller Centre I got to see the whole of manhattan was amazing got some great picures and then finally ate some lunch in central park it was exactly how i imagined it to be. There were lots of people jogging which made me wish i had brought my trainers ha
There are so many taxis here and all they do is beep its so annoying ha I got the subway to all the places i went to as its cheaper and wanted to see what it was like............smelly,wierd and cramped
over and out
