[ getting there is half the fun ]


SO WE'RE back from our lovely NY getaway and what a great time we had! I'm so glad we decided to drive there instead of flying - it took about 9-10 hours total but I've always loved road trips and the anticipation of getting to our destination.

Our drive took us around Lake Ontario through Buffalo and along the I-90 to Syracuse and then south on the 81 and 80 towards NY. Should we stop in and say hello to Dwight and the gang at The Office at Dunder Mifflin?


Soon we could see the skyline in the distance and I think my heart actually started to beat a little faster!



Through the Lincoln Tunnel...



we emerged from the darkness and were in a whole new world!



ok GPS, time to guide us to our hotel...



After a lot of weaving around cabs, we made it!



Time to check in! 
What a pretty hotel with some fun touches...





And our room didn't disappoint! A bed like a cloud...



lovely ammenities ...



complete with fluffy robe...



extra supplies...



and anything else you could possibly need, including oxygen!



We were in good hands!  A great start to our trip and so much more to come!

I love that building with the "New Yorker". I need to actually take pictures next time I'm in New York (hoping for Christmas!).

I have to settle for a road trip to Winnipeg instead! :(

Thanks for taking these photos to share your NY experience!

I love how you bring us along with you... Your hotel looks amazing. I stayed at The W in San Francisco once and it was great. Can't wait to see what you'll be doing in the big city!!!!
