Travel Wish list: New York City

I have a little traveler/adventurer in me, I have always wished to travel and see the world, then things I did not plan for happened to me had a baby and got married that meant seeing the world was put on hold. In my travel wish list I will be talking about countries I want to visit and this week its New York City in the United States of America. I am just so in love with this city when I see it in a movie or a magazine I swear I forget to breathe for a few seconds, I find their lifestyle interesting.

New York City has the most beautiful sites to see as per my movie knowledge of the city (hahaha). New York is the largest city in the world and here is my list of places I want to visit when I eventually visit the Big Apple:

The Central Park
The park offers tours and I must say the private horse and carriage ride sure sounds fun it lasts for 45 minutes and the coachmen will also be your guide as you ride through Central Park. See many famous historical landmarks including the Conservatory Water, the Wollman Rink, the Imagine Mosaic, the Conservatory Garden, the Central Park Reservoir, the Bow Bridge, the Central Park Carousel and the Central Park Zoo to name a few.

Statue of Liberty

Visiting lady liberty would be awesome she is the symbol of democracy given to America by France to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. I would take the Statue of Liberty evening cruise it lasts an hour and you can watch the sunset how romantic.

Time Square
Remember how enchanting The New Year’s Eve Times Square Ball Drop Party in the movies wow this would be an unforgettable experience (Hope someone is taking hints, wink, wink). Hope it is as beautiful as it is to watch the ball drop like it is in the movies.

Considering that taking and visiting these attractions won’t come cheap I think these 3 places will be just enough.

Which country or city in the world would you love to visit?

    It’s great to put your wishlist out there – it makes it more likely to happen. I’ve been to New York – in mid-winter. It was freezing cold and as a result I didn’t enjoy it as much as I could have. Unless you like the cold weather, I would suggest going in a warmer season. You’ll enjoy it more.

    Ooh how romantic is New York City would love to visit it too and looks so beautiful in movies in the middle of winter, but being there living the cold weather can’t be fun. Kruger Park is beautiful – no need for fear of animals stop you from visiting, but yes a love of nature and animals is a must to enjoy it and get the most out of the visit.

    Thank you for a reminder that we need to sort out my husbands 50th birthday trip for the Spring!! I went almost 20 years ago but he and our daughter have never been. I like the sound of the evening Liberty trip. You will love it when you do get there. It is exactly as it is in the movies (to a Brit anyway!). Rockefeller Centre Ice Skating in winter was very romantic to watch too. #ShowcaseTuesdays
