The place where my wife and I spent the first part of our honeymoon. It was an amazing place to visit, especially in the winter. We spent New Years Eve in Central Park watching a fireworks display that seemed to last forever. (Apparently it was just a little one and nothing compared to the 4th of July display! )
We had some amazing food, including a sushi platter on New Years Eve and a T-Bone Steak that I simply couldn't finish
It was a fantastic experience and we visited all the usual tourist attractions including :The Empire State Building, Statue Of Liberty, Central Park Zoo and of course The Rockerfeller Ice Rink and Christmas Tree
An amazing City with so much to see and do. From Chinatown to Fishermans Waugh, SoMa to Haight Ashbury, San Francisco has some many great and distinctive areas to it.
We visited some fantastic bars, from a bar where it rained inside and the house band moved on a floating island, to a secret Speakeasy which had no signage and the only way to gain access was to knock on the door and give the password. The cocktails inside were amazing.
San Francisco is somewhere I really hope to visit again. Especially, now i'm a huge fan of Anchor Steam Beer and Clam Chowder!
My wife and I visited Paris on our 1st wedding Anniversary. My wife was 5 months pregnant at the time so we sampled little red wine and French Cheeses! However, we still had some great food and took in all the sites of the City
Notre Dame Cathedral was beautiful and the Eifel Tower spectacular. Unfortuantely we picked the foggiest day to climb to the top of it, so had no view whatsoever, but it was brilliant nonetheless. We had a great river trip down the Seine and we even had a coffee in the cafe from Amelie.
A wonderful holiday in Italy where we visited: Bergamo, Milan and Lake Como. Milan was a beautiful City, complete with the majestic Duomo Cathedral and a lot of stairs.
We visited the Navigli district (pictured) one evening and had a few drinks on stools on the road, along with many other holiday makers and Italians, simply admiring the scene.
From Milan we took the train North To Bellagio in Lake Como, we visited at a time when few holidaymakers were around, so we pretty much had the place to ourselves. A very peaceful end to the holiday
A wonderful City with so much to see and do. Many people we'd spoken to weren't the biggest fans of LA, but we loved it. We got talking to a barman in a local bar near our hotel. He suggested a great music venue, where we had a fantastic night and saw a couple of great bands.
We visited Universal Studio, The Walk of Fame, The Chinese Theatre and Beverley Hills. We even saw the film UP in the Disney Cinema on it's release date, which was a pretty unique cinema experience.
We spent a few days in Santa Monica where we visited the famous fair on Santa Monica Pier and spent a few days relaxing on the beach and experiencing Venice Beach.
A wonderful City to visit in the Autumn, drinking mulled wine on the street and admiring the many shops and boutiques. St George's Bridge (pictured) is fantastic with so many artists and entertainers to encouter as you cross.
The public transport was amazing, putting ours to shame, the food and drink was also great. The was my first taste of proper grog which is lovely to drink on a Winters night.
The City has some lovely walks and some hills to climb!
