You know what I’ve just gone and done? Booked our apartment for NYC that’s what!
When I say our, I mean mine and Mrs Woog. We will be shacking up together for a good week before we move to the hotel for BlogHer. And check out our own little space!
It’s in Midtown which I have decided is convenient. I suspect we won’t be spending much time at all there – I plan on walking that city from daybreak to sunset taking in every site, smell and taste and drink that it has on offer! When I started looking at accommodation for us I had my heart set on some fabulous show pony hotel. I looked at:
The cost was just too much. Way too much. And for the size of the room that we had too? You couldn’t swing a cat in there when two double beds went in and where on EARTH would I put all my shopping from Anthropologie and ABC Carpet and Home? I’m thinking a strategy for shopping could be to just arrange a container to be sent home? Seems sensible to me. So now we have an apartment, to make a cuppa in, and spread out in and for about half the cost of a hotel room. See? More money for shopping!
So this is going to be home for Mrs Woog and I from the 25th July. Now tell me, where do I HAVE to go when we are in NY? I want hidden galleries, tourist spots, libraries, shops, cafes, restaurants and bars. Thank you to all of you who have already been so kind to send me recommendations via emails etc – you all rock! I cannot believe that I will have days and days and DAYS to myself to walk, and discover and just be in NEW YORK. By myself. Mrs W is going to be pretty sick of me and my squealing is all I’m saying…
Oh and also? What shoes do I need? All that walking means I should probably have a sensible shoe but what shoe IS that? A summery, sensible, stylish shoe? Does it even exist? Go!
