New York Trip, Part 4: New York, New York

New York Trip, Part 4: New York, New York

So… I never got to finish this series because my move got in the way. But hey, better late than never, right? I am so excited to share the grand finale, the big shebang, the final countdown to this series that I started I couple months ago.  If you want to re-read those, her is Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 at your easy linked convenience.

If you couldn’t tell, I absolutely LOVED my time in New York a while back. Now that some time has passed, I am itching to go back to this beautiful city. I have never been the type of person that dreams about moving to New York, but after this trip I could definitely see the attraction and would be lying if the thought of a move to the Big Apple didn’t cross my mind. So let’s dive into the things that made me have a slight change in opinion and a couple of my favorite things I did while I was there…

New York Trip, Part 3: When Ya Just Gotta Get Out of the City

New York Trip, Part 3: When Ya Just Gotta Get Out of the City

Don’t get me wrong, I love New York, but sometimes you just gotta get out and smell the roses outside of the city. The friend I stayed with during my trip to New York actually lives about an hour outside of the city, which means she has a car. This was awesome because we were able to explore the area surrounding the city for a couple of days. For some reason I never realized how beautiful New England was until I explored it on this trip. So here are some of my favorite things that I did.

New York Trip, Part 2: Packing and Preparation

New York Trip, Part 2: Packing and Preparation

If there is one thing I do consistently when planning for a trip, it is research. I do as much research on a city as I can before I actually leave for the trip. Some would say this takes the spontaneity out of travel, but I would rather have a plan than be spontaneous. At least I accept and own that I am a planner. So how did I plan for a city that has so much to offer?

New York Trip, Part 1: Travel, Travel, Travel

New York Trip, Part 1: Travel, Travel, Travel

I have loved all of my recent travels, but my trip to New York was one that I was especially excited for. I hadn’t been to the city in years and never as an adult who got to actually decide what I wanted to see and what I wanted to do. Even though I have never had some crazy desire to live in New York like some do, it’s hard to deny the draw of such a spectacular city.

With Love from Boston

With Love from Boston

There are exactly two cities I have visited and instantly felt like this is a place I could realistically call home. The first is Seattle (shocking, I know) and the second is Boston. Much like Seattle, I don’t know what it is specifically about Boston that I fell in love with. Maybe it’s the history. Maybe it’s the pride residents have in their city. Maybe it’s the endless food choices. But most likely it’s a combination of a bunch of little things. I am by no means a Boston expert, but I can still share my awesome experiences with y’all!

A Quick Trip to Steel City

A Quick Trip to Steel City

One of my favorite parts of my job is that I am able to travel so much. Whenever I go somewhere I have never been before and am able to, I will try to spend a little extra time in the city. As a result, I have been able to visit some pretty cool places. Recently, I visited Pittsburgh for the first time.

A Long Weekend in Seattle

A Long Weekend in Seattle

If you couldn’t already tell, I am a little obsessed with the city of Seattle. I laid out some of my favorite things about the city in my last post, which you can fine here. I figured this week I could get a little more specific and give you my guide to a long weekend in Seattle. Lastly, I strongly recommend getting the Seattle City Pass if this is your first time going to the city and plan to follow this guide. It saves you a ton of money and gives you admission to some great activities!
