A few weeks ago I was lying in bed sick and decided to do a bit of New York dreaming and planning to lift me out of the snotty-nosed, coughing slump.
I made a shopping wishlist. I made a restaurant wishlist. And I clicked “buy now” on three tickets for a helicopter tour over New York.
Yep, I may have been delirious on cold and flus but I was on a trip-planning mission.
It would be Mr Styling You and Mr 7’s first day in the city and I would have just emerged from the mad cocoon of the Hilton Hotel, post BlogHer.
We would all need perspective of this city they call the Big Apple.
And perspective is a massive understatement of what we got.
A perfect summers’ day combined with lingering jetlag and the fact that we’d never before been in a helicopter made for a totally surreal 25 minutes.
Landmark skyscrapers, the bridges, the rivers, Central Park and Yankee Stadium … it was all there, as if constructed by a gazillion Lego bricks and clicked in place to form the ultimate set.
A city ready and waiting for us to explore.
We booked our tour through Gray Line New York Sightseeing - it was worth every $.
Have you ever been on a helicopter before?
