Last day in NY

I’m in Yellowknife now, where it is currently minus 22. A little colder than New York, or even Edmonton for that matter! Yesterday was our last day in the big city, though we really only had half a day. After packing we stopped at Starbucks on our way to Bar Americain, the Bobby Flay restaurant… Reads more »

NY Day 5

Don’t have much time this morning, so I’m going to try to keep this short and sweet. We’re leaving soon for Bobby Flay’s restaurant Bar Americain. After that, off to the airport 🙁 Yesterday we went to Clinton Street Bakery for breakfast. Took us a while to get there, but it was definitely worth it…. Reads more »

NY Day 4

More photos uploaded from today, 41 to be exact! There would have been more but some of them turned out kinda blurry. I guess we miss the image stabilizer from my camera. Our day kinda started and ended with interesting Subway stories. We walked to Grand Central this morning, stopping at McDonald’s on the way… Reads more »

Ah New York :)

We arrived in NY tonight with no problems – not even a delay! Even though it was more expensive, we opted for the taxi in from the airport over the shuttle or public transit. I think it was worth it. We’re both feeling a little claustrophobic, but not because of the hotel room (it’s bigger… Reads more »

How gay is Edmonton?

Apparently the city I live in is gay enough to make it into Out Traveler magazine’s top five gay-friendly tourist destinations in Canada. Vancouver, Montreal, Winnipeg, and Toronto are the other cities. Here’s what they say about Edmonton: Its hard not to take a shine to Edmonton, the laid-back capital of oil-rich Alberta. A refreshing… Reads more »
