Hey guys, so this might be random but I'm heading to NY in about a month to visit family and for work related reasons. I won't be doing much work, so it will be more of a holiday as my brother stays there. I will be there for just under two months and I just have a couple of questions for anybody that have been there and have gone out of the country.
First off, this will be my first trip out of South Africa. Yes I have been on a plane many times before, most recent going to Joburg for rAge. But I know that this flight will be at least around 22 hours long. Do you guys have any tips for traveling such long distance such as packing, what not to do, best to take with you on the plane, etc.
Secondly (this is more for people that have been to NY), what are some of the must do and don't? I'll gladly visit some of the outlying areas such as Boston but I don't want to spend too much on traveling far because then I would have to pay more for a hotel. Seeing as I'm staying with my brother, I will be saving on living expenses.
Also, what are some restrictions that I would have on games/blu-rays? I have a PS3/Xbox/PC and I know that Xbox games won't work but what about the rest? I am also considering to buy a laptop (one which would be powerful enough for 3D rendering) but I'm not 100% sure about the power adapted and which brand to go for.
I have done some extensive research on this trip for a while now, worked out a schedule as well but I would like to know opinions and thoughts from you guys. Please feel free to post links to any websites that has interesting events or places during that time or even PM me if you'd like.
As you can see, I am relatively new to traveling but I am really excited and got a feeling that this will be the first of many ;)
My Mass Effect Hoody from the Bioware Store is already waiting for me in NY. :)
As I've mentioned, any tips and advice will help a lot and thanks in advance. :D
