A lot of chest in Key West

Our plan today was to drive down to Key West as it’s our last day with the car. We woke up to very overcast and rainy skies but decided to go anyway.. The drive from our motel in Homestead is about 2.5 hours and although I nodded off for parts of it, it’s a very nice drive down. We went over the famous 7 mile bridge with lovely views out to sea either side. It was surprising how blue the water was [...]

Docking up in the Bahamas

Upon waking we realised we was docked in Nassau. This was our first breakfast on board and we was disappointed by the buffet, everything was cold so tomorrow we will go for the sit down option, the only good part was the view of the Bahamas Atlantis Hotel from the window. It’s strange to be here as we almost booked Atlantis years ago when our Mexico holiday was canceled because of the swine flu ou [...]

Cruising off to the sunset

After way too much walking this morning we finally arrived at Miami's port for our first ever cruise! Upon arrival we was told our itinerary had changed and we would only be going to one destination in The Bahamas and not the two we had booked, “Hurricane Matthew” was banded around a bit. I was pretty pissed off and tried to complain but was told no one here deals with customer issues and I would [...]

Wonders of Wall Street

The previous two days were spent doing all the attractions that came highly recommended from friends and online reviews. So then today, our last day with the passes, became a struggle to decide what to do. When we was out sailing on the first day a tourist speedboat came thundering past us, it was the total opposite to what we was doing, and to our delight it was included with our passes. That’s t [...]

On top of the rock

As with yesterday, today has been another action packed day.. Madam Tussaud’s First up was Madam Tussaud's. This wasn’t really part of today’s plan but as we were passing (at a time where most sensible people were still in bed) we noticed there was no queue so decided to pop in. I’ve been to the one in London but Nick’s never been so this was a good chance. Obviously being America, the waxworks we [...]

From bridges to bodies

So having shed out £200 on our New York passes, we were obviously determined to get our monies worth and pack in as much as we could over the next 3 days. I bought Nick one of these passes in London for his Birthday a couple of years ago and they’re really good value if you don’t mind busy days. The New York one allowed us free entry to over 80 attractions across the City and covered most of the t [...]

Free NYC

Google said it was a 45 minute drive to JFK airport (where we was dropping off the Mustang). We didn’t trust the traffic so set off with 30 minutes to spare, leaving the motel at 7:30. The drive in was actually quite pleasant and offered us really good views of Manhattan and all the skyscrapers. When we was getting our belongings out of the car the clerk greeted us with ‘there is only $607 to pay’ [...]
