Aren't you supposed to be at work...!


NYC is on the list of places to go for me! But I want to do it the way that you do and do a month or so. I've even read that they have RV parks relatively close and I could take the train in... :-)


"you could spend a lifetime here and still miss something" Yes! This is so true and it is exactly why NYC is such a great place. So much to do, so much to see, so much energy,...

Jacq: The great thing about coming for a month, besides feeling like it's ok not to be going full-speed all the time, is that a little bad weather doesn't ruin your trip. On Wednesday, we were going to watch "Crazy Stupid Love" outside along the Hudson River. It was rained out. But last night was perfect for free jazz at Pier 45. Looks like rain might keep us from Summer Streets today (Park Ave closed from uptown to downtown for bikers and walkers--no cars), but it was perfect last Saturday when we enjoyed it!


Syd, we're currently here in Alameda, getting ready to spend the day in your old haunts - San Francisco. We feel the same way about the Bay Area as you do about NYC - so much to do at any given time. Today we're taking the ferry over to the Ferry Building, then walking up Market to Geary to see War Horse at the Curran Theatre. Tomorrow we're doing a complete 180 and going to Mill Valley to hike the Dipsea trail.

I could move up here in a New York minute!

Tamara: Have fun! We just did the Dipsea trail a few weeks ago with friends. Those stairs are a killer!


Oh, I'm jealous! So glad you're having fun. I agree on the taking longer "stay in place and take your time" vacations. The rush rush of normal travel is why I don't like doing it.


We have never stayed more than one week in a single location, but I love the idea of an "extended stay." Even with a week, we never feel guilty about self-imposed down-time or rainy days. I can imagine how great a month would be. Have fun!


OK Syd, it's official - we're just back from Mill Valley and have fallen in love. Just sent an inquiry to a homeowner via VRBO.com about spending 30 days there next summer. Of course, unlike your current NYC home swapping situation, we'll be paying for the privilege. :-)
