UPDATE : Read my recommendations with my TOP 5 – New York !
New York? The dream! Travelling to New York has always been one of my dreams. For years, I had wanted to go there. Finally I went twice in less than a year, actually if you read this article the day of its publication, it is more than likely that I am still there for a couple of days.
The first time, on my own and on a whim, last minute plane tickets and hotel booked at the last minute. I really needed to live an adventure, to regain self-confiance and mostly I needed change, as I explain it in my article about the importance of travel. I decided to do it.
The second time, with a friend and in an absolutely improvised way too, but I have to say it the experience acquired the first time helped a lot. I could write a book about New York City, but I am going to try to be clear and efficient, and attempt to make you travel the time of an article.
To be honest, I don’t know what to start with. In the same way that I didn’t know what to start with once there. New York is a super city, excessive, sometimes extravagant but always fascinating. The city seems to be from another world for the European citizen that I am.
It is amazing to realise all that you know about a city to which you haven’t been yet and what you picture in your head. All those symbols seen tens of times in series and movies. The feeling of being in the middle of Times Square and going to enjoy a McDonald’s is indescribable.
The New Yorkers on a hurry, the yellow cabs, the big avenues, the buildings, the hot dog booths on every street corner, and the list goes on and on… Everything is here, I am like a kid, with stars in my eyes. Uptown, Midtown, Downtown, a delight for the eyes and a delight for the taste buds.

What I like most of New York : all its districts are so different, (Soho, Chelsea, The Village…) and there you can enjoy food from all around the world. In the very same street, you can enjoy the best cannoli of the world, some Chinese chef’s dishes or even a cheeseburger.
No doubt, what makes the richness of New York, is its diversity and its limitless cultural contribution. It is an absolute cosmopolitan city, it is a melting pot. I am convinced that New York is the capital of the world. By the way, I recommend visiting the Headquarters of the United Nations.
I don’t get enough with an article but I have literally fallen in love with this city. I find it extraordinary. I think New York is going to become my at-least-once-a-year destination, but we’ll see about that, because my love for travel is infinite, but my money is not.
Thank you! Do not hesitate to share the article and see you next Friday!
