My favourite place

New York! I have been six times, never for business and always for pleasure. It provides everything you need – a morning walk around Central Park, shopping on Fifth Avenue, afternoon pit stop at Magnolia Bakery and in the evening, take in a theatre show and an abundance of great bars and restaurants. For non-shopping days there are plenty of iconic sights to see, museums to visit and sports to spectate on.
