There’s something about visiting New York City for the first time. The busy streets, the skycrapers, the nightlights and the people. I feel like I’ve romanticized this city so much because of too much consumption of books and TV series that somehow did the same. But seeing it first-hand is definitely an experience. We were in New Jersey for almost three days back in July and we did not waste time and tried to explore New York as much as we can.
We took a a ferry ride to enjoy the sights along Manhattan – and one thing we didn’t expect: it started raining pretty hard. We didn’t have any umbrella. I was wearing a white shirt, a skirt and a new pair of sneakers. It was almost a nightmare – but it ended up being one of the most memorable things that happened to me. There’s something charming with the idea of running in the rain around the busy streets of New York. Honestly, I don’t think I’ll be able to experience that again. You can read this article for more details about that experience.
Will I go back here? Definitely! But will I consider living and working here? That, I still have to think about. Someday, if I ever go back, I hope I could explore it even more because it felt like I haven’t seen much of it. Indeed, New York City has its own charm – and I really enjoyed every minute of it while it lasted.
