NYC: The Highlights

Next stop was a whirlwind tour of NYC.

Alec was keen to see the American Museum of Natural History and all of the dinosaur bones.

Central Park – gorgeous in summer.

Lunch at the gorgeous Tavern on the Green in Central Park.

Catching up with gorgeous friends like Masa and Calman.

Doing a few touristy things like the Statue of Liberty.

And, of course, shopping! Juicy Couture, Tiffany & Co, and the Tokidoki mothership.


Such a short stop, it was crazy, but gave Alec a taste of the city. Will be back – for more shopping!

Hawaii – Highlights (July 10 – 14)

First stop on our round-the-world, month-long adventure, was the big island of Hawaii.

I wasn’t sure what to expect, and was surprised at how much I loved it. It was ultra American, but has retained lots of islandy-feel to it.

Some highlights from the four-and-a-half days we spent there …

The best pizza I’ve ever tasted. Made with spelt grain. Best. Thing. Ever. So good we went there twice.

Snorkling at Kealakekua Bay, site of where Captain Cook met his end. Also a place of shallow reef with lots of colourful fish.
Watched a live volcano flow lava into the ocean.

Swam with wild dolphins, including a dolphin calf.

And the absolute highlight, swam with manta rays at night. Freaky but sensational. The look scary but are so gentle, and look like underwater butterflies performing a ballet …


I wish we had stayed longer now, there was so much more to see! We will definitely be back …
