Last September, the Battle Family finally visited New York for the first time. I had originally booked an apartment in Lower Manhattan via AirBnB but just two months before we were due to fly out, our host got in touch to say the booking was cancelled as they no longer had the apartment. Cue panic. We needed to secure somewhere and fast. I went back onto AirBnB and scoured ‘Book Now’ places to find us somewhere, and reasonably priced, and stumbled upon a fabulous apartment in Astoria.
Having had an awesome two-week USA road trip, we are now thinking ahead to next year’s holidays. We have Lapland pencilled in for December but we cannot wait until then to spread our wings and fly off somewhere else. One thing we have decided is we want a destination that involves just one flight direct from Faro. Having done Faro to London to Portland and the return trip, we would like an easier ride of it next year.
