My sister came to the New York Trip, and we all enjoyed it so much! We flew from Gatwick Airport. My dads girlfriends children, had never been to New York, so it was amazing to get to talk to them about all the wonderful sites and experiences they will have. We arrived to a lovely white stretched Limo.
(Again, I just want to say, I am not showing off or trying to make anyone jealous- I just want to show you what I did in New York).

When we arrived at our Hotel, we were all astonished! A lot of memories were brought back for my sister and myself! And obviously Ellie and Will, were just memorised by everything around them. Our hotel 'Affinia' was really beautiful, it was very friendly and just homely. It was a week before Christmas Day, so the hotel was everything Christmas; which put us in a good mood, every minute of the day.

We had a lovely lunch in Michael Jordan's Steak House restaurant. I personally enjoyed it. Except from the service was a little slow, but it was very busy, so that's understandable.

|Starbucks and Bagel!|
We normally had the joys of eating Starbucks everyday!
Also on the open top bus, we visited where the Twin Towers was. Even though I am not an American citizen, I still felt very emotional, it felt really weird and the building that is now been built here, are going to be the new 'Twin Towers' they are VERY tall. The matching tower is further away than expected, it is probably a 2 minute walk diagonally across. The little church on the right, is probably the best sight I saw, it was so beautiful inside, and felt peaceful and pure. The grounds were gorgeous, the inside of the tiny church was very misleading, because the outside looked so small, but the inside was white and large. It was the first time I saw the church, and Ellie and myself took ourselves over the road to see this, as everybody else had gone into the Twin Towers memorial museum. I felt it was too upsetting to go inside, but my sister told me it was lovely, and it was very respectful in there.
I also went to see Rock of Ages stage show which was phenomenal! I love the movie. I am a big fan of stage shows, so to see Rock of Ages was a really amazing experience I got to have. I would definitely recommend the musical. I would strongly advice you to decide the correct age group to take, as it is a little raunchy.
A lot of shopping took place, especially in Sephora- which is a large makeup department store.
