1996 - New York & San Francisco

My first trip back to NZ.

This the first time to New York. I wandered around for a day or so and then took a guided boat trip around the whole of Manhatten Island. There was a very informative trip and quite funny as well. The guide really knew his stuff.

Central Park.

San Francisco was a stopover on my way back to London and was spent wandering around the various touristy bits of the city. It is a great place and I really enjoyed my few days there. I walked over the Golden Gate Bridge in the fog, not much of a view though, especially looking back towards the city.
