It’s done – the plane tickets are purchased, and I am going to
New York!! Which might not seem like a big deal to many, but since I have never actually gone somewhere on vacation as an adult, this is going to be an awesome adventure (I hope!).
The confluence of the Charles James exhibit and Male Pattern Boldness Day happening in the same week was just too much of a coincidence to ignore. I had been waffling back and forth for over a month, but finally had the courage to step off the ledge on Monday.
I did visit The Big Apple back in 1998 for a school theatre trip, but that was very regimented. This is going to be much more of a free for all – I have five days to explore, and I plan to make the most of them!
A little Charles James here, a little Male Pattern Boldness there, and perhaps a little theatre outing, etc., etc. Any tips or suggestions on not-to-be-missed sights would be most welcome. And if you are local, I would love to meet-up!
Also, if you travel to
often, I would appreciate feedback on Manhattan
hotels – the good, the bad, and the ones to absolutely avoid.
By the way, does anyone know if bamboo knitting needles are allowed on a plane these days? Inquiring minds need to know! I have heard rumors they are a big no-no, but am not finding them on the list of verboten items. What a rube, right?! I have not been on a plane since 2000, so any crafty traveling types with ideas for passing the time on a plane would be appreciated, especially if knitting is a no-no.
Hope to see you in
Now I just need to figure out what I am going to wear . . .
