Taking A Short Break In New York

I spent last weekend in New York on a shopping trip. What a great world we now live in when we can now just hop on a plane and visit a great city like New York for a couple of days. And the best thing about this is the fact that I did not have to pay a fortune for the flights or the accommodation. I just decided to go for it after seeing it advertised in the newspaper. I used to think that these advertisements were just claiming to have flights this cheap but that you never really got the price advertised; I was wrong. After paying for both my flights and accommodation, I was only down four hundred pounds; I couldn’t believe it.


The Big Apple has to be the number one shopping destination in the world. I have to say i found it very hard not to take my credit cards to the max because of the choice available. Even with a lot of self control I still ended up buying a lot. The other great thing about New York is the entertainment. On the first night I visited a trendy restaurant and a few proper New York bars – the fact that I was a single woman didn’t seem to bother anyone. The next night I took in a show on Broadway and to my dying day I will never forget this experience.


For anyone thinking about taking a short break like this I would highly recommend it because it is so inexpensive. I would be straight back on the plane in a flash if I could. If you can take a break or two throughout the year, it does wonders for our sanity. Taking a foreign holiday once a year is never really enough but another break in the year really can make it easier to get through the winter.


As far as huge corporations are concerned, everybody must know about virgin. The absolutely huge company that was founded by British adventurer richard branson. Among many of the virgin brand names are music reviews.
