New York - Wow! Must admit, at first we didn't like it. It was too much. The foul smells, the honking horns, the pushy street sellers. It's too much in your face. But third day in and we've become somewhat accustomed to her. The hop on hop off bus tours have taught us plenty about the beautiful, old buildings and the Hudson and East River Cruise allowed us to see the Big Apple from a different and more beautiful vantage point. Then Liberty won us over and now we're hooked. Here are a few piccies for you -
Yesterday we headed off to Niagara Falls. Coming from such an arid country as Australia the volume of water coming over Niagara totally blew us away. We enjoyed the boat ride under the falls first, complete with very becoming plastic ponchos (for which we were very grateful) and then a trip above Horseshoe Bay to see the incredible volume of water above the falls. After lunch it was off to one of the many local wineries for some wine tasting. We finished our tour with a look around the picturesque town of Niagara on the Lake. So beautiful. Here are a few pics from our day -
This afternoon we arrived in The Big Apple so look out for a NYC update soon.
