New York, New York!

New York, New York – the last stop on our incredible 2015 holiday.

Hard to believe it was this time last year we were finishing up the best holiday we’ve had in years. It was also our last few days left with our super awesome travel buddies Jess and Ryan – so we wanted to make sure we made the most of it.
