User Inspired Holidays Take 2

July 22, 2016

The last time we did a user based blog post a few of you really enjoyed it so we are back again, and we are going to do another holiday post.

New York is a great place to go in America and a popular destination. A lovely user by the name of @somermariex is going in 199 days. New York is most famous for its pizza, one of the first pizza places to ever open in New York was Lombardi’s Pizza, this place is amazing if you want authentic pizza. If you are looking to walk off that pizza then why not take a walk along The High Line, a beautiful urban bridge in the heart of the city, with stunning views it is a nice alternative to the usual tourist sites in NY. If you fancy splashing some cash, then hit the shops in Times Square. Plenty of new shops and some really fun shops to go into are Hershey’s Chocolate World. You won’t miss it with its bright and colorful shop front lights. There you can stock up on all the best American chocolate and sweets, a perfect place to get some souvenirs or just things for yourself. Why not jump into a cab and see some of the amazing tourist sites in NY, a must do is the Empire State building and the Rockefeller Center, both stunning views of the city and skyline. It’s a perfect place to take some pictures. A nice way to end a day of begin the day with is to watch a Broadway show. Either a comedy or musical performance.

Gran Canaria in Spain is up next and seems like a blissful place to take a holiday if you want to get away. @hannah_daish is off very soon and her countdown by the pool had us dreaming of a summer holiday. Known for its stunning views and relaxing beaches why not visit Playa de Las Canteras for a spot of sun bathing and swimming in the clear blue sea. This beach, in particular, seems to be a favorite with many holiday makers. If you are after some culture then head to Catedral de Santa Ana, from the top experience some stunning views of the local area. Also, check out EL Faro de Maspalomas for some great architecture and some stunning views of the ocean. Apparently, the lighthouse and promenade are worth taking a look at. If you are looking for something a bit more active to do, then check out some water sports activities to do on the island. If you like hiking then there are lots of great places to go for a good walk in the mountains. If you prefer to get a little deeper into the ocean then you can learn to deep sea dive, and explore the fishes and sea life.

So those are the two places we really liked from our users. What holidays do you have on our app? Let us know using the #Countdownplus on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
