New York – how wonderful it was to see you again! It had been so long since the previous time. Well, a bit over two years to be exact – something that felt like an eternity.
During the winter I noticed longing for a trip to New York more and more. Every week, I found myself searching for cheap flights to the city, quite often finding great deals, but always with the wrong dates. But then I found the one. The deal I had been waiting for – a quick check with the hubby and our bosses if my plan was approved and before I even noticed, I had clicked the tickets to my mailbox. For the next several weeks I was over the top with joy – I will go to New York!
For years, New York has been my ultimate favourite city. This was now my sixth time, but even though I mainly try to avoid traveling to the same place twice, I’m sure this was not the last time in the city. Actually, it think every time I visit New York, I’m more excited about the trip than on the previous time. Also, every time I visit the city and see more of it, the more I realize there is still so much left unseen.
I’m still not quite sure what it is with the city that gets me the most, why it feels so enchanting. Is it the hectic city vibes, the yellow taxis, or the lights of Times Square? Or maybe the High Lane, vast shopping opportunities, or good food? Is it the Broadway musicals, comedy cellars, or the countless parks and museums? The list of things I like about the city are just endless. Maybe that is the reason – every time in the city is different and every time you can experience something new.
The list of places I wanted to visit was long – too long for this trip. Five days was nowhere near for being enough in the city. I enjoyed every second of the time I spent in the city and the days passed in the blink of an eye. We walked countless miles, but still, so many places were left unseen. Therefore, it is easy to say that this time for sure was not the last time I wanted to visit New York. If it is up to me, I will be back, sooner rather than later, that is for sure.
