Colour in New York #TheGallery

Independent travel is the way to go sometimes but you have to plan what you are doing and do make sure you have the correct visa etc for where ever you are going.

A number of years ago it was my 10 th wedding anniversary and I decided I really wanted to go and see Macy's Parade . I had seen Home Alone and more importantly I had seen Miracle on 32 Street. I loved that movie both the original and the re make. 

I did my homework before I booked our New York Holiday and I did it all through Experia and I have to say I found it remarkably simple to do.

The hotel  We decided to go for was The New York Palace and it is a beautiful hotel with such stunning architecture and the views are to die for . With views of St Patrick's Cathedral and Radio City to name but a few.

I was also there for Thanksgiving and I was honoured to be part of an American tradition. And you can't get more colourful than the time honoured Macy's Paradde.

  1. I went to New York and now really, really want to go back after seeing your top picture. Little man is not 3 yet so I think we will have to pencil this in for when he's a bit older and able to manage the trip a bit better. Best start saving too....
