Travel: London Mums go to NEW YORK CITY (with & without kids)

New York Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty Ferry trip

As mums we do not often do crazy things. But once in a while we should take a couple of days off parental duty and head to a place where we can switch off completely. Well, as crazy as it sounds, New York City is probably the coolest city for women to have fun with girlfriends (without partners or kids). As you may remember, I won a three-day trip to New York last December with Netflix Stream Team for my article on Netflix Original series Marco Polo and ended up on the red carpet covering the global premiere of Marco Polo in New York on 2nd December 2014.

As crazy as it seems, three days in New York are amazing although if you could spare a whole week it would be even better. I was no stranger to New York having visited the Big Apple back in 1989 but things change quickly in metropolis so what you see now might disappear or transform soon after.

Here are my recommended things to do in New York City with or without kids.

Travel with kids: Roadtrip to France

Shaun the Sheep goes to France collage

If you feel adventurous during a half term / school holiday you can take the kids on a roadtrip to France. Without much planning we decided to go skiing and sledding for a couple of days on the Mont Blanc on the French side with a few stops along the way. It’s 1000 km one way and you can get there in 15 hours with no stops.

However with young children (Diego is 8) this is unthinkable and a more traditional road trip is recommend. It is a bit too much but quite adventurous and worth doing once in a blue moon. After all it is 2000 km journey in total in just 6 days.
