Our Trip to New York City

After a long bus journey on Thursday, August 8th we happily arrived in New York. Our first stop was Central Park, where we walked next to the lake and saw some small turtles in the water. After that we visited the famous Time Square.

On Friday, we took the ferry to Staten Island where we saw the Statue of Liberty and then New York (Manhattan) from a different view. Afterwards, we walked through Chinatown. It was very crowded and the traffic was really bad. Little Italy was great because it reminded us of the tiny towns in Italy.

Saturday was our very successful shopping day. In the morning we visited Top of the Rock on the Rockefeller Center. The view was breathtaking.

On the last day, Sunday, we visited St. Patrick's Cathedral. Later on it was time to buy gifts for our boyfriends and family members. Our last stop was the Chelsea Market and after that we took a walk on the High Line.

On Monday we started our day with a delicious typical American breakfast at Andrew's Coffeeshop. We ordered Nutella french toast, pancakes, fried eggs, sausages and, of course, bacon. We enjoyed it a lot. And then our journey back home began.
