Travel info

OK, so I noticed there are some stowaway-candidates (though I have a real small suitcase) so here's some more travel info. Tong uitsteken

On the 10th.  I'll have to get up very early because I have to catch the first Eurostar train from Brussels to London St. Pancras. Kizzy will be waiting for me there, I hope Knipogen, and then we'll catch the tube to the Heathrow Airport. 3 hours later we should be up in the sky for about 8 hours. Time enough to check our lists of 'to do things'.  I'm considering getting the 'New York City pass'.  Anyone has experience with that?

We should arrive around 3 PM. New York time. Then the transfer to the hotel where I think we might need to take a nap. After dinner, we will probably try to get into the theatre coz it will be opening night of North Atlantic and we already want to try and get a first chance of seeing Maura  or maybe even raise a glass of champaign with her. A girl can dream right ? Tong uitsteken

How it all started

A few weeks ago, hubby gave me green light to go to New York to see Maura Tierney in the play 'North Atlantic'

I didn't feel like going all by myself though, so I tried to find a fellow Maura fan who wanted to go to NY with me.  After a few weeks I found Christabelle,  who is also a member at my favorite lubyforum 'The Dance We Do' and she was very glad she could go.

After deciding we would go from the 10th. till the 15th of March, we started searching for a flight and hotel.  We'll be staying at the Comfort Inn Manhattan which is very close to the theatre and to everything that's worth seeing in NY.

Ever since, we've been preparing a lot: already picked up my brandnew travel passport, the flights are booked, my Eurostar tickets for London are printed, the tickets for 'North Atlantic' will be waiting for us at the theatre on the 12th. 

In exactly 3 weeks the New York adventure begins! This is all very exciting and the only disadvantage of it is that I've been sleeping very bad for the past month. Verrast

God I wish it was March 10th. already!
