New York: An Afternoon in SoHo and Little Italy

My girlfriend and I visited New York recently, on a last minute trip over Labor Day weekend. Luckily, I was able to find award availability on American Airlines, and we used Marriott points to book two nights at the Courtyard New York – Manhattan/Midtown East. Here is a list of our favorite bars and restaurants that we visited.

Queenstown, New Zealand: Why I Flew First Class Yet Stayed in a Hostel

With a population of under 5 million, almost 2 million of those living in Auckland, you are 7 times more likely to come in contact with a sheep than a human in New Zealand.

One of those excursions that I discovered is a 13-kilometer hike along the coast of Eastern Australia, from Bundeena to Marley Beach.
