Take the cat with you to Skegness and leave it there while you bugger off abroad.

If it really does like you, it'll find it's own way home.

Smith and Wollensky in New York, they’ve got a posh restaurant but we went to their bar next door where they do steaks, burgers etc. Well worth a visit, go early tho as it gets busy after work so not ideal with a baby.

Freedom Tower is impressive, Staten Island ferry is essentially a free boat ride with good views of manhattan so worth jumping on that. Central Park is a must especially if you’ve got the baby, natural history museum is right next to it too.

Nabbed a week off in June and need to make sure I actually do something with it.

St Juliens area is best to stay in.

Aside from Valetta which is a must see; go spend a day in Mdina which is the old capital city.

Gozo is nice and you can catch a ferry out to it.

Been once before, going again in June.

Silema has a few decent hotels and a ferry connection to Valletta which is one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

St Julians is a bit further (like 5 mins walk) along the coast from Silema, more hotels there and it's 'beaches' are facing out into the Med rather than into the harbour.
