I apologise for my absence for the last 2 months. If you know me from other internet outlets you probably know that I’ve been very busy with work, side projects and travel! After being cooped up working in a hospital for 10 months I was ready for a whirl-wind adventure, so when my 2 weeks of annual leave came around I hopped on a plane to the other side of the world– to New York City!
It was a dream really.. and I’m so proud that I made it happen. I had my taste of solo travelling the same time last year in Austria and was more than happy to do it again!
I found myself an apartment in the Upper West Side of Manhattan, which was a few blocks away from Central Park. I laughed at the over-the-top nature of Time Square, watched The Lion King on Broadway, perused Sephora many times, ooo-ed at the Designer shoe collection at Saks 5th Avenue, relived my childhood at Schwartz Toystore, climbed The Rock, marvelled at Ms Liberty, ticked off items on my Bucket List while at The Metropolitan Museum and Museum of Modern Art, walked the Brooklyn Bridge, ate hot dogs, enjoyed Halloween festivities in the suburbs on Long Island, was caught in the middle of a hurricane and heaps more!
New York City really is a place of possibilities– I can see why people move there to chase their dreams. I have come back invigorated and motivated! Stay tuned for more related NY posts! :oD
