I am currently travelling in Iceland and New York City for a short break before Christmas, the first part of my adventure was to stop in Iceland for 24 hours. We then travelled to New York City for four days and will fly home for Christmas Eve. Throughout the holiday I will be making daily vlogs (hopefully) and updating this blog with my daily Instagram pictures too. Giving you guys a direct insight in to what our holiday in New York City via Iceland looks like.
24 Hours in Iceland
We spent our time around Reykjavik doing a northern lights tour and visiting the Blue Lagoon. The country was covered in snow and due to the sunrise and set times never saw Reykjavik in daylight. It was a flying visit but one that had me mentally planning my next visit before even arriving at our hostel.
We are in NYC for three and a half days with lots of plans including NFL at Metlife, Top of the Rock, Ice Skating, Times Square, Bus Tour and much much more.

This morning we visited the memorial grounds of 9/11 and the newly opened World Trade Centre building. Unfortunately the building isn't opened to the public yet but the footprints of the previous towers feels like a great way to commemorate the tragedy that happened here. #nyc #newyork #newyorkcity #memorial
Tonight after hours of trying the bad weather finally lifted for a while and allowed us to hit the Top of the Rock. Seeing the Empire State from the sky was incredible and its blue and white colours were chosen for the Jewish celebration of Hanukah. #latergram #newyork #newyorkcity #topoftherock #sky #skyline #manhattan #america #usa #travel #instatravel

This is the Highline in New York City, built on an old raised railway. This area had become deserted in recent years and was home to many of New Yorks homeless people, but recently it opened as a newly renovated park area with great views of the city and places to eat. #newyork #newyorkcity #america #usa #travel #highline
The Christmas Tree on the Rockefeller Plaza is a popular tourist attractions in New York during Christmas. So as we are all out celebrating Christmas Eve (or morning depending on where you are in the world) it seemed appropriate to share this image. Merry Christmas X #Christmas #festive #tree #newyork #newyorkcity #america #usa #topoftherock #Rockefeller
