From Vacay to Sick Days, Part Two

New York City: Day Three!  This was our last day exploring the city, as Wednesday was going to be Major Crazy Travel Day.  First things first, we had to head over to NBC Studios for our pre-booked Studio Tour!

You couldn't take any pictures inside the tour (booo), but we got to see where Brian Williams does the Nightly News, inside the NBC Football studio, and the set of Saturday Night Live.  It was very exciting to see it all, and as a huge TV fan (and big SNL fan, at that), I absolutely loved this experience.  I'm sure the studio lot tours in California are much more elaborate, but this was a great experience regardless.

After our NBC tour, we wandered around to a few other tourist sights we hadn't seen yet.  We went into FAO Schwarz, Bloomingdales, and Dylan's Candy Bar.  Oh, and we had lunch at the Carnegie Deli -- such ridiculously large sandwiches!  We headed back to the hotel in the late afternoon to rest up and get ready for our big evening plans.

My first ever Broadway show!

I had quite the experience trying to see Wicked when it was in Toronto last time, in fact Mr. Lock nearly got us tickets that day (this was before we started dating, but kept hanging out just the two of us -- non-date dates, as I refer to them now).  He bought us these tickets to finally get to see it, and it was SUCH an amazing production!  What a perfect way to end our time in New York City.

Wednesday was spent in the Newark Liberty International Airport for HOURS before our noon flight home... then we took the following transportation to get back to my condo: airplane from NJ to Toronto, ferry from the Island airport to mainland, free Porter shuttle, subway, city bus, our own feet.  Oh, and then, after I completed the final assignments for my two online courses (yay!), and did a load of laundry and ate a yummy dinner prepared by Mr. Lock... it was into a car, for the three hour drive to vacation destination number two!

More to come soon!
