New York City – Blast from the Past

When I was in the USA quite a few years ago now 2009 I think it was we spent a week in New York, we did a tour of Madison Square Garden and took in a Baseball game a Yankee Stadium. It was an awesome week and I would go again tomorrow if I could.

This was also before I started getting sea/boat sick so taking the ferry over to liberty island and a scenic cruise around Manhattan was no issue at all, in addition to the cruise we also took a scenic helicopter flight around the city, most of the footage shot is below.


Madame Tussauds London 2006 – Blast from the Past

In 2006 My wife Sarah and I took our first overseas holiday and visited the UK a place my wife had been wanting to go for some time at that point and to be honest London was not even in my top 5 places to visit and as a result I didn’t have high expectations for our visit to the UK. We spent the first week in London doing all of the tourist things to do. Sarah wanted to cram as much as possible into our short time there. We were go go go all day long and with us going in the middle of summer they were long days with the sun not setting until about 10pm. On one of the days there we visited the Madame Tussauds Wax Museum which was pretty cool most of the wax creations look amazing but as with anything there are a few where you sit and scratch your head going I don’t see it, it doesn’t look like that person.

You will see a range of creations that were featured in the museum at the time of our visit in the You Tube clip below. You will see me pictured with and pictures of a few deceased celebs that are definitely not my taste mainly being Elvis and John Wayne but they were both 2 of my mums favourite celebrities so I had to do it for her and to be honest those two pictures came up really well. My favourite though are probably Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, My pics with Muhammad Ali and also Tom Cruise (as mentioned in previous posts I am a huge Top Gun Fan) and the 3 super heroes I mean how good does Spiderman and the Hulk look and of course the old school Superman you can see as the thumbnail below.

Let me know your favourites or who you think doesn’t quite look right in the comments below

We have also since visited the New York Madame Tussauds where we took quite a few pictures as well and I will share that in a few weeks time for you to compare.

Ferrari Museum Visit – Blast from the Past

A number of years back before having children my Sarah and I planned to do a working holiday spending a year leaving and working in the UK. The day before flying out my mum had a cardiac arrest resulting in our holiday plans being put on hold for a bit. When we got underway a month or so later we decided to start our holiday with a Contiki tour to ensure should we get called home early that we would have seen as much as Europe as possible. One of the awesome places that we visited was the Ferrari Museum in Italy. This place was awesome, there were some really sweet cars there. Even Sarah who is not a car fan at all fan this place a little interesting. One of my biggest regrets also happened just outside the Museum, they have a rental place outside where you can test drive a Ferrari which for some a bunch of reasons I did not do. although they are excuses some of those reasons were. I didnt want to spend the money I thought I had another 11 months in the Europe and wanted to save the money. It was cold wet dark and Icy (mid December and snow falling throughout parts of the country. I had not driven on the other side the road yet and was not sure doing in a Supercar was the best way to learn we also only had a limited time in the area as our tour bus was leaving at a set time. Either way they were excuses and now wish that I had done it

Check out some of the pictures taken inside the museum and the super sweet Ferrari’s, I am even in a couple of the photo’s from inside the Ferrari Museum
