The Big Apple! I've been here multiple times before ever since I was little, but this time was different. This time I visited a friend for a few days who works in Times Square, and since it was during the week, I had a good bit of time to bounce around the city by myself! Being a girl from a smaller town in South Carolina, I was a little intimidated by the thought of walking around big, bad New York City all by my lonesome. And yes, I'm 23 years old and very well-traveled, but I still get a little nervous especially in such a big city! But I'm here to tell you, I made it! And it was totally not intimdating at all. In fact, it was invigorating. Having no one with you, really opens up all your senses to the world around you because you aren't relying on someone else to lead you around. This helped me experience NYC in a whole new way that I never had before. Everything is so vibrant and fast-paced. Immediately stepping out of the train station and into the city, I was hit with a rush of city life, and the vibe was phenomenal and invigorating. Don't get me wrong, I love my little city and would not be interested in moving to NYC full time, but it was so fun to visit, and, in case you're planning a trip up there soon, I thought I'd condense it into a blog post for you to enjoy! So, here's how I spent my days with a few tricks of the trade mixed in along with pictures from my trip!
Enjoy this video with some highlights from my short but sweet trip to the Big Apple! And if you're headed there soon, I hope it's an amazing trip!
I love travel and adventure. I love seeing things from new perspectives. I love to find good food in exciting places. And I love making moments last for as long as possible.
