Thanks for all the fantastic suggestions and well wishes on our trip to New York. We get more excited about it every minute! Of course I am spending every free moment on Tripadvisor gathering as much information as possible (sorry, I know I have been neglecting catching up on blogs but can ya blame me?) I think I have probably sang the praises of Tripadvisor many times here on my blog but I can’t remember travelling without it! I also really enjoy their new ‘10 places’ series – here is their latest series featuring 10 of the best palace hotels. Google them when you have a moment, the interiors will have you swooning! Have you ever stayed in a palace hotel? Any favourites on this list? (Mine is the Tai Lake Palace).
