I’ve struck off on my penultimate flight to Europe for the year. I’ve decided to put myself on some kind of regimented exercise plan to counteract all the fine dining I offer on my tours, ha!
So to get things started on the right foot I planned a layover in New York City for about 10 hours. Arriving at JFK Terminal 4, I stored my bag and took the subway to Central Park.
There, I put in about 7 miles on a jog through the park from bottom to top. Oh, I forgot to mention I purchased a Fitbit activity tracker watch to keep me on track and chart my progress. You can see by the route map below, I didn’t quite figure out the GPS tracking on this first test… there are some lapses in the tracking.
I hopped back on the subway and traveled all the way down to the Financial District and World Trade Center 9/11 Memorial site to put in another 3 miles of walking (at a McGuffin pace).
Back on the subway at 7:00 pm and at JFK by 8:00 pm. I collected my bag, went back through security and headed to the Delta Sky Club where it pays to have perks from flying so much. They have showers, so… I showered and came out clean and refreshed.
My flight departed at 11:00 pm, ugh, so late. I slept for 4 hours, skipped the Delta breakfast and was on Irish soil by 11:00 am. Your Adventure Starts Here!
