What was your favourite thing about NYC or the US in general?
Each city had its own charms, and its own pros and cons.
San Fran was pretty funky and cool, and it was nice to start in California with some nice weather. Super expensive though to the point where it's a joke. But a cool city for the most part. A lot of homeless people though and quite dirty.
Las Vegas is like an adult Disneyland. Everybody is happy/drunk/partying/having a good time and enjoying themselves. It's very tacky though and I wouldn't go back. I'm not a big partier, or gambler. The main reason we went was to see the Grand Canyon, which was absolutely spectacular. The enormity of it is tremendous and hard to grasp until you're actually there. Was brilliant to see.
Chicago took both Mrs Cruyff and I by surprise. A great city in which we'd both go back to. It was clean, visually stunning and we had a great time there. It's like a mini New York. The architecture there is fantastic, so many old buildings which we don't have at home.
Boston was also fantastic. Visually stunning. We had a great time there too. Did an Aqua Duck tour which is a bus tour around the city, but also can go on water, was a lot of fun.
And New York, well, it's New York. We did the 9/11 Memorial as we didn't get there last time, and it was one of the best things we did while we were over there. It's incredibly moving and very well done. We were there for about three hours. Very detailed. I forgot how catastrophic it was until we went through there.
