WELCOME TO NEW YORK
Yet another adventures around the US. Already a second trip this year and this time we made it to the east for once as well! It was my first time in this huge concrete jungle called New York, the place I only knew from the Sex & The City and movies like Begin Again, Home Alone II, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, One Fine Day, Serendipity, You’ve Got Mail and others. I’m a shy introvert who likes calm places and prefers nature over cities. So you can imagine my first impressions of New York - it felt chaotic, intimidating, stressful, noisy…my head was full of this and I was just screaming inside and wanted to hide somewhere calm and quite!
After a while it got better and I started to enjoy more of it! We stayed in a nice area in Brooklyn. It was a nice fall weather with a little sunshine, yellow leaves everywhere & on our first day, me and Lukas, still jet lagged, headed to a place from my list to have breakfast. I was really happy about gluten free & healthy options almost everywhere! My new iPhone 8 was getting more and more full with photos of industrial brick buildings, skyscrapers and yellow taxi cabs. I'll never forget that beautiful sunset above Manhattan we were watching from the Brooklyn Bridge Park. And I’m sure my wallet will never forget all the wandering around Williamsburg.
Overall, New York City left mixed feelings inside me. I'm really glad I could see the city actually. But I think I'll stay near trees and mountains for a while. Our next stop is west coast again. So expect more posts very soon!
