Leaving NYC to Glasgow

This was our last day of our holiday. Got up around 10am and organised our luggage. We now need to buy new luggage. Both cases are now torn. Hope they make it home intact.

Hicksville Station: yes “Hicksville”

Iain dropped Gillian & I off at Fort Salonga train station at 1.45pm and got train to Penn Street Station NY and changed for a train to Newark Airport New Jersey. All trains were perfect. It took just over 2 hours to get to the airport. Then 1 more hour to get through security. Our plane took off 1 hour late. So it’s been a long day.

I have had the best holiday for the past 2 weeks. Spending quality time with my wife Gillian O’Neil daughter Katelin O’Neil. Memories that will last forever. Katelin does not come back until next Monday 19th July with the Marley family.

Last but not least a photo for all the girls still in NY. They all said they really missed Square Sausage & Irn Bru, so this is for you girls, and you guessed it… it  was fantastic!


I am now looking forward to going back to 29studios & moviecom.tv & changing my world again…

ps. luba you Katelin, see you soon x

Today we wanted to stay out of the sun- and that’s strange coming from someone who stays in Glasgow.

We got the $2 bus to the mall which took about an hour.
Then walked around and bought some more clothes etc.  We need to now buy a bigger case.

Love this tattoo shop from the tv series, but lets start at the beginning.

This is just an amazing holiday, we are now having a relaxing time in after the “rush” of New York. So we are taking it easy in Miami.

Here is the Beach at our Hotel: watch HD

Took a cab down to ocean drive and got a fantastic meal from Vinyl & Kai.
Also there was an international DJ sitting in the restaurant:

Then the best event in town. We went to Miami ink. It’s my favourite tv show. What a cool shop. I bought a tv shirt, stickers and signed poster. Still a big kid!
