The last day of the year seems like the perfect time to finish this NYC trip trio of posts. It's more procrastination than anything else but it goes well, doesn't it?  ^_~  Looking back and editing the pictures I was glad I took so many! As months go by new memories make a home in your brain and (sort of) push back older ones. It's nice to have so many pictures to refresh your memory!

Our day started with breakfast in Brooklyn at this wonder cafe.

The main reason my best friend and I went on a last minute trip to NYC.. The Friends Cafe! (officially, Central Perk Cafe lol) Yes, we're that big of fans! We used to rush homework and chores, in Middle School and High School, every Thursday night to watch it together. We had to!

The line, at 10am, was around the block. Yikes!

For some reason I pictured it like an actual coffee house. It was more like a museum and you walk in line, view some items from the actual show, pictures, get your free coffee, take your picture and GET OUT! Oh, you can step to the side for the ridiculous 'shop'. (nothing was in stock. on the fourth day!) 

  So no one told you life was going to be this way...

Overpriced? .. Definitely.  Worth it?.. Absolutely not.  Am I glad I got it?.. You bet your a. 

Since we were in a Friends kind of morning I decided to look for the actual apartment pictured on the show. Me: it seems close, lets walk there. It was not close! but can't you hear the theme song play in the background as you look at that picture?... Yes, I'm obsessed. 

Lunch was had and it was still fairly early. Central Park it was. We didn't go miles in.. barely two. lol But it was starting to get really cold and dark. We bought some pretzels from one of the many vendors and I can honestly say I've never put anything more disgusting in my mouth. #twss I tossed the thing after a bite. That aside, it was so soothing to just see and hear all the runners, the leaves rustling, the singers that are at the entrance. So calming in the middle of such busy streets! 

The next afternoon, we had a flight to catch. We filled our morning with the last tourist destination on our list: Statue of Liberty.  When I purchased our tickets they said to be there early and before our departure time. Ours was at 8am so we went through all the security checks and were on the almost empty ferry. I guess they don't take off until it's full (which makes sense) but because we thought it took off at 8 sharp, we were there sitting on a rocking ferry for an hour. Guess what that caused? Yep, motion sickness. I seriously was so nauseated! I couldn't wait to get off the ferry because there was no way I was using those bathrooms and I also wanted to avoid puking on the lady in front of me. We went through the self guided tour but I was not really into it because I was so sick. So next time I visit NYC I'm doing this again and taking some motion sickness pills! and getting there later than the ticket says.

It was an amazing trip in a beautiful city. There aren't enough vacation days to see it all. I hope you guys enjoyed these posts, pictures and wallpapers.

Happy and safe New Year, may it be everything you want it to be. ❤︎
