Destination anywhere . . .


. . .  east or west, I don't care.

Fastforward to 2011 and in November I will be forty.  Based on the current economical climate I could be celebrating my fortieth year with a bag of chips on Blackpool promenade.  Not a great option in November!

My husband has told me that he plans to take me away for the weekend, somewhere special, we just need to decide and its dependant on funds available.  Now the options could be endless - a weekend in New York, a snowy break in Krakow (weather permitting) or a show in London, but I honestly can't decide what I would want to do. 

New York on my birthday would be fabulous but the prices would be more expensive as it falls during Thanksgiving, but I'd love to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade.  I also want to go to London to watch Wicked, eat at Marco Pierre-White's restaurant (steak and triple-cooked chips, yummy!) and visit the Selfridges shoe floor (if they let you do sleepovers here then it would save the cost of the hotel, Selfridges please consider this, it could be a money-spinner). 

Its a dilemma, so what I want to know is how did you celebrate your naughty forty or planning to celebrating the double-figured milestone?  I could do with a few ideas!

happy early birthday! spending it in NY would be amazing, but I'm sure you will have a great time regardless to where you are! :)

I will be 30 next year so was thinking of doing something fab too. I would love NY but think Paris might be more of an affordable option then more to spend on presents!

Oh yes planning!
But firstly your comments today on Sister Wolf were lovely xxx

NYC is wonderful - have you been before? If not really worth it pricey or not.

But then London is a wow too and your ideas sound fab.

Also think about Barcelona - very lovely and it somewhere away from the UK

Pearl - Paris was one of the suggestions too, I definitely agree that is would be better to have more to spend on pressies

Pop Champayne - NY is definitely I place I want to visit so it would be on my wish list to do.

Pammy - congratulations, your birthday destination looks lovely!

Make Do - thank for your comment re Sister Wolf, her post really moved me. Barcelona will definitely have to go on my list.

Hmmm I would say New York or Paris. Actually, Prague is beautiful in the old city. Go somewhere exotic! Good luck choosing hun x

Wicked is an absoloutely amazing show and you can't beat a fancy meal... But if I could afford it it would be NYC everytime!
