“For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.”
– Robert Louis Stevenson

Last weekend my girlfriend Rose and I took a spontaneous trip to New York City! I was beyond excited because it was my first time there but damn, did it live it up to its expectations!!DSC_0689DSC_0803DSC_0846
I think the best word I can use to describe the city is electric. There’s a contagious energy with just so much going on and so much to see, it’s a wanderers paradise! Don’t get me wrong, the walking took a toll on me pretty quick. I think my exact words after a few hours were, “My legs feel like jello!”. I can see how the city can capture you and draw you in. The bright lights, the concrete jungle, it’s a place where dreams are made of. Sadly this dream was only 2 days long. I’m not sure when I’ll be able to return but needless to say, New York, I love you!
