my first experience with New York

let me begin by saying that when I travel, places have a habit of feeling like home immediately. Like I get a sense that I could live anywhere. But let me tell you, I could ESPECIALLY live in NYC. It’s so energizing here! It might just be cause I’ve been in the Mormon bubble too long, but I also find the diversity of people and stories SO SO SO fascinating. I love it.

we got in around 3 yesterday and decided to grab food as soon as humanly possible, but I lead us there in a super round about way by accident. eep. I swear I might have left my brain in Provo. I hope it comes back to me today, I kind of need it now. We decided after our food that we would like to get the touristy things out of the way so we headed to Times Square and Rockefeller Plaza. It was pretty fun, mostly overwhelming. But I’m traveling with some of the best humans, so nothing else really matters.

Cool. I’m off to start another adventure!

  1. Enjoy your next adventure (and apologies for removing my first comment – this is what happens when I don't read over what I've written to make sure it makes sense. It didn't!)

    I felt exactly the same way when I visited NYC and I'm from a little village in South England! There is something about it that feels so familiar and comfortable and comforting, yet exciting and new and fresh, all at the same time. No other place I've visited on Earth has had the same effect on me – it's a truly magnificent city!

  3. I've lived 40 minutes outside of the city my whole life, so I've been there countless times and yet every time is still magical!! A few fun places I would recommend is Strand Books, Alice's Tea Cup, Up Thai, Dylan's Candy Bar, the High Line, Chelsea Market, and Central Park! Have fun!

  5. Ah I'm so jealous, enjoy your time in New York! And I feel the same way about so many cities, "I think I should live here!" It's a problem. I want to try everywhere once!
