For anyone who knows me, they are all too aware that I love pancakes. When I came back to London earlier this year, I wanted to visit some of the pancake restaurants in London and the suburbs.
New York is the city that never sleeps and many may think it is too far out of their price range to visit. I love NYC and want others to know it is possible to visit without blowing your budget. I have discovered 30 free and cheap attractions to visit that will not break the bank.
1. Central Park
Escape from the hustle and bustle of the city in the 843 acres of gardens in the middle of the city. Central Park was inspired by public parks in London and Park and was the first landscaped public park in the US. In the winter, there is an ice skating rink and in the summer, a roller blade rink. I come to the park to run and there is one way to run around the park – go clockwise only, or meet the wrath of locals. In the center of the park is the Jackie Onassis reservoir, challenge yourself and run around it. The full route round the park is around 10km.
I was fortunate enough to see the Bodyguard last Tuesday. It is an award winning musical based on the film of the same name which starred Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner. The 1992 film was a blockbuster hit and I was curious to see how they could turn this film into a musical.
