We are a family of four - Josh, Esther, Lucas and Aisha - stepping out of the rat race for 8 months to travel round Southeast Asia, New Zealand, USA and Canada / Josh, Esther, Lucas y Aisha estamos de aventura recorriendo Asia y America y Oceania durante 8 meses. Qué no se acabe nunca!
Lovely weather, lots of kids, New York, what to do but hit the parks? First we went to Morningside park which is right next door. Had some fun on the playground and then ambled past hundreds of barbecues (4th of July weekend) to the other side. Close to the other side you get to Central Park where we had a great picnic and hit even more playgrounds.
It's also great to just walk around the non-touristy areas and take in the street vibe. That's the nice thing about staying with locals. In the evening, sinking down more than the recommended amount of wine, we discussed what to do over the next few days.
