New York City is going to pop up here quite a bit over the next few months as I count down to my holiday in the middle of the year to celebrate my ahem.......40th birthday in the Big Apple.
It will be the very first time I visit NYC and although I've been lucky enough to have visited over 40 countries this trip excites me more than any.
I'm obsessively pouring over blogs trying to get the inside scoop on where to eat, what to do and just general tips as I'm not a fan of the overly touristy traps.
So any New Yorkers or regular visitors to this glorious city throw them at me.
