It’s just under three months until we depart NZ and things are getting exciting!
While we are in NYC we’ll be staying at this apartment for the month:
We found it on a website called vrbo.com which was recommended to us by friends. Similar to airbnb.com, it works like NZ’s bookabach and allows you to find houses and apartments in different cities around the USA and the world. You contact the owner, in our case Gina, and you book directly through them.
Our apartment is a studio with one bedroom, located on the Upper East Side about 5 minutes walk from Central Park and just a subway ride away from Times Square. Gina was worried we might find it too small but for those of you who have seen where we’ve been living in Auckland lately, the NYC apartment will be fairly luxurious in space. We also have a pretty awesome view!
We’re excited that we have our own kitchen for cooking, especially because there’s a farmer’s market just across the road which we can attend weekly for groceries. And the coolest thing? Gina has posted the keys to us from NYC so we can check in as soon as we arrive – They should be arriving any day now!!
