Quick trip to the Big Apple..

Another long weekend meant booking a last minute trip to the Big Apple, this time getting out to the wilderness of Bear Mountain!

The High Line

After walking the High Line once again, I took a bus for an hour or so and chatted to a girl who was going to the same place.

We ended up going on a few different routes through Bear Mountain having to change tracks at some stage as some others hikers passed us to advise that there was in fact, black bears ahead..!

After a full day of hiking we caught a bus back and went our separate ways back in the big city.

I was staying with my housemate and we went out for some yummy food and drinks around the East Village area.

The next morning I went for a wander and a spot of shopping before a late brekky with my housemate and meeting up with some other mates from Cayman who were also in the NYC for the weekend.

Cool kids

We met at The W Rooftop Bar which had great views from Brooklyn over to the Manhattan skyline and as it was too hot to sit outside, we ended up inside drinking, quite a lot all afternoon and out for a few more.

More High Line views..

An early morning flight back to the Rock and the weekend was gone – I had fit in shopping, eating delicious food, drinks out and a hike in a national park – my type of weekend.
