NEW YORK, NEW YORK - a bucket list item is deleted

Jane travel blog
Start spreadin' the news, I'm leavin' today
I want to be a part of it, New York, New York
These intrepid shoes, are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it, New York, New York
I want to wake up, in a city that doesn't sleep
And ensure I'm Queen of the City, Top of the Statue
These Sydney blues are melting away
I'll make a brand new start of it in old New York
If I can make it there, I'll make it anywhere
It's up to you, New York, New York

Ha, time to tick off a longstanding Bucket List item….

After all the weird places I’ve adventured to over the years, and after having backpacked around America on Greyhound buses (albeit 40 years ago… ooohh), I have never actually visited New York! It’s time!

The Plan: A short trip following a busy couple of years spent Retiring, Downsizing and Re-housing, discovering the joys of Grandparenting, becoming a Senior Citizen (60th) and finally settling into a brand new and fun Life Phase.

The Reason: Satisfying/fuelling my DRD4-7R Wunderlust Gene

The Trip: Cameron and I are travelling to Las Vegas (I absolutely have to see what all the hype is about and mostly with Evan’s encouragement, he seems to think I will have great fun in gaudy LV, I have promised to behave myself whilst there), followed by two weeks experiencing the Big Apple (or as Cameron says 'joining the Trump Circus), a week exploring New England during their Fall and finally a stopover in San Francisco for old times sake.

Will I ever get tired of Roaming the Globe, Traversing the Universe? No never, I can already feel my excitement mounting and my sense of adventure/inquisitiveness piqued......
