These vagabond shoes They are longing to stray ...

Postby Margrethe » May 23rd, '13, 2:22 pm

Quickly! Quickly!

I'm looking at air fares and hotels in New York. Having made a very rough budget, thinking we'll use no more than $100 for two persons a day for food, we can make it to New York in October for $6000 (everything included, adding lots of money for attractions and activities).

Should I go ahead and push the button?

That's a very enthusiastic reply, Laura!

(And just not to worry anyone (nor to brag) - we can afford it... just checked what we'll get paid next month ("holiday salary"), it's not like this is an expensive we're not prepared for).

Do it before you have kids. When they come along it will be a different story :)

Sounds like a great time! I'd love to go to ny and I live here. Haha (although, it's probably almost as far for me on the west coast)
Now the waiting and planning starts.

How fun! Yes - I agree - do stuff like this before kids (not that you can't also do it with kids - we did) but it's just different! Have a great time! We love going in now with our two teens and DD goes in with friends -so so many fun things to do!

NYC is on my bucket list

I am so glad you did it Margarethe. I assumed it wasn't a financial thing for you and I echo what everyone else says to do it now. Once kids come, life changes. For the better but the stuff like trips always get pushed farther back on the burner

Good tip on getting Broadway tickets now!

I'm not familiar with the US sites for these things - which are legit? Are there any good one I should check?

We ended paying through the nose for tickets to "Book of Mormon". It just looks like so much fun! :)
