My Perfect Weekend by Andrew Johnson

An ordinary Saturday for me revolves around my oldest son who plays football for two different teams, one of which I coach. It means we travel around the North East a lot and it can be a long day, usually brought to a close with a nice family meal out. Sundays are often quiet with a long walk with the dogs.

As such, my perfect weekend would inject a bit of excitement with a trip to New York with family and friends, travelling first class.

With it being nearly Christmas, we’d kick the trip off by taking the boys to Macy’s and Schwartz and letting them choose whatever they’d like. We then go ice skating in front of the Rockefeller Centre before a ride in a horse and carriage around Central Park.

We’d leave the kids on the evening, take in a show and go to The View, the revolving rooftop restaurant at the top of the Marriott. Having been I know you get to see some real sights!

Sunday would involve a lie in, leisurely breakfast and a trip to the Guggenheim Museum, along with some final sightseeing before packing up and going home. Bliss.
