Well, after 11 days out on the road, we made it back home yesterday. The flights were a bit roundabout - Newark to Chicago, Chicago to Orange County - but everything ran on time and we made it home!
I have to say that all in all, it was a fun vacation. New York was definitely the highlight of the trip. Looking at some maps today, we probably walked about 10 miles or so the two days that we were there, saw some interesting stuff. I personally enjoy the active around midtown and downtown.
We are setting our sights on next year already. I am proposing we go west from Niagara - Detroit, Chicago. We have votes to go back to NYC. What it means is that we'll be going somewhere!
