Manhattan is for the Birds

Ever since I discovered that my feet had a huge propensity for abuse, I’ve loved loved LOVED wandering afoot. But then again, there are some things that *might* just look better when gazed upon from above.

I’ve never ridden in a helicopter before, so when I found a Groupon for a Manhattan tour by chopper (holler!), I booked it right away, before I even had a chance to change my mind.

I’m really glad that I did push through — the ride made for some killer shots (oh well, at least up to what my point and shoot would permit =P).

Yup, sometimes you just have to throw all sense (quite literally) into the air, feed your whims, be impractical and just go all out. Definitely one of the most memorable experiences I’ve ever had up to date.
