    Welcome To New York | First Timers Guide To New York City

    I have returned from my long awaited trip to New York and I’m happy to say that I had the best time ever. My sleeping pattern is refusing to get back to normal so in between naps I’ve been looking into my next trip as there is so much more of New York and America that I want to see and now that I’ve made the first leap into the country I feel much more confident about going back.

    I have been blogging for over 3 years and despite my fairly regular activity on PennyxxLane.com, I have found myself going through spells where I feel much less inspired than usual.
