Review: FreshDirect Thanksgiving Dinner Feast Kit

This is a review for the small 2016 FreshDirect Thanksgiving Feast kit. I am posting early so that people (in New York area) that like to plan ahead (like me) can consider this as an option! Our first Thanksgiving in New York was in 2015 when we went to the Thanksgiving Day Parade. That year … Continue reading Review: FreshDirect Thanksgiving Dinner Feast Kit

Making friends (when you’re a bit of a nomad)

It dawned on me in April that it's been a decade since I left Brisbane to start my accidental life as a global wanderer. It has been awesome living in London, Sydney and New York but the one thing I've always had difficulties with has been making new friends in these new cities. It’s probably … Continue reading Making friends (when you’re a bit of a nomad)

#TBT: The Late Show feat. Stevie Wonder

This is a story about really, really good luck. The Late Show with Stephen Colbert studio is just around the corner from our apartment.

I gave Gambit a cotton shirt with a panda on it as his 2nd wedding anniversary gift, because in the US the 2nd year gift is cotton. Gambit's parents had gifted us a restaurant gift voucher at Christmas … Continue reading TBT: Celebrating our 2nd wedding anniversary at Jean George, NYC

NYC eats: Burger Joint (Le Parker Meridien)

Burger Joint is a place that serves.. burgers… and is somewhat hidden inside the Le Parker Meridien (119 W 56th St, New York, NY 10019). I am not sure why this place is hidden behind a red velvet curtain but it does give it a bit of mystique. Once inside, the mystique is all gone. … Continue reading NYC eats: Burger Joint (Le Parker Meridien)

Murder. Mystery. 2017 birthday!

I recently celebrated my 35th birthday in February. I’m not shy about disclosing how old I am because as I just noted, it’s a celebration! I love celebrating birthdays and it doesn’t even have to be mine. There is nothing to dislike – birthday cake, birthday cake ice cream, birthday cards, birthday parties, birthday presents, … Continue reading Murder. Mystery. 2017 birthday!

Our 2015 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade experience

Gambit and I had bid and won some ‘priceless’ Thanksgiving Day Parade tickets at a charity event earlier in the year.  Our tickets gave us seats in the grandstand and on the day we managed to sit between 68th & 69th along Central Park West.  Our seats were excellent and gave us a great view … Continue reading Our 2015 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade experience
