Hi folks. Apologies for a lazy post but instead of doing some proper research myself I thought I’d appeal to the Massive hive mind for ideas.
In November I’m going on probably what will be a once in a lifetime trip to New York, with a brief chance to see a bit of Amsterdam on the way back. Never been to either city.
I saw the recent brilliant thread on Dublin so I’m being cheeky here and looking for similar tips.
I’m not a particularly frequent traveller. On average I’ve been abroad once every two or three years, but generally nowhere further than Europe. Generally city breaks: London, Paris, Rome. I like the buzz of cities.
The difference this time is I’m travelling with my mum not my wife. So fancy shopping and fancy restaurants are generally not required. Me and my mum are both practical and spendthrift, so would get more pleasure out of simple value for money pursuits. Neither of use are averse to hoofing it around – anything up to 7 or 8 miles a day at most would be acceptable. I’m 43 and my mum is 67.
Any ideas? Practical as well as cultural.
