New York... Day One

The Ansonia
We'll we're here in New York and I'm busy shooting lots of video for TripScout TV.  Hope it all turns out considering I can't see without my glasses and I'm way to proud (and lazy) to dig them out of my purse every time I turn the camera on.  I'm just pointing the camera at the action and hoping I catch some of it.  This could be interesting or really, really weird.

Great hotel, great location...can't wait to fill you in on the details. Seeing New York with kids can be done...and so far it's actually quite fun!

More to come....

P.S.  Bette Midler got her start in the 70's singing at the gay bathhouse in the basement of the building right across the street from our hotel.  Her piano player at that time was none other than Barry Manilow.  The Ansonia has an such an incredible history.  Babe Ruth used to live there and waddle down to the first floor barber shop for a shave every his bathrobe.

I love it here.

About Me

My photo
I didn’t dip my toe in an ocean until I turned 25 and my friend Sandy and I traveled to Puerta Vallarta, Mexico. After that week, I was hooked. I loved being somewhere new; smelling the smells, tasting new food, seeing how other people lived. It energized me. As luck would have it, I landed a job that allowed me to travel all over the US and often to Canada. Being a sports event television producer, I was on the road all the time. That's when my love affair with travel began. Now, its 20 years later and still no one gets more “geeked up” about planning a vacation than I do. All I need is a destination and some travel companions and my fire is lit! I start delving into my favorite hotel sites, sifting through photos and reviews, comparing, contrasting -it’s like an addiction. The travel shows with tips and trends? I study them like a playbook. I LOVE doing the things most people hate doing before they go on vacation. Whether it be searching for a food tasting tour with a local or discovering a romantic B&B in the middle of New York - I’ve found it and I’ll share it with you. So....where should we go?
