Finding My Way Around NEW YORK CITY (Part 1)

I recently went on a trip to New York City and I had the time of my life! If I had to think of one word to describe my trip, it would have to be EXHAUSTING!!! But, in a good way 😊 There’s just so much to do in New York! I could’ve been there an entire month, and I still would not have been able to do it all. I did so much walking and exploring, I came back home with calluses on my feet! My knees and calves felt like I had just run a marathon; I felt like I was falling apart, but it was so worth it for the memories that I made.

I was in full-blown tourist mode the entire time I was there. I got to see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. I went to the Rockefeller Center, Empire State Building, Central Park, the African Burial Ground, the 911 Memorial, and Times Square. I walked across the Brooklyn Bridge, rode the subway, got on the Staten Island Ferry, etc. etc. etc… I was truly exhausted! But, I was determined to get as much done as possible in the few days I was there.

I must say, I enjoyed most of my time in New York. I had a hard time dealing with the crowds of people that are always around, everywhere you go, no matter what time of day. Being from the south, that’s something that I’m not really used to. The overcrowdedness and the fact that everyone seemed to be forever in a hurry to get to who knows where, drove me crazy! I also had to learn pretty quickly that my southern charm wasn’t always received well in New York. In fact, I felt like I had to take the southern sweetness out of my voice whenever I was out and about asking for directions and whatnot. I was never rude; always kind and polite. I just had to be a bit more firm and use my “mean voice” a little more often than I normally would. Otherwise, those fast-talking, fast-walking New Yorkers would walk right on by! My first day in town, I went to an event and I felt a connection to one of the ladies that was there. So, I gave her a hug! And I think I scared her half to death when I did! From now on, I have to remember to leave the “southerness” at home when I’m out traveling the world.

Overall, visiting New York City was a really enjoyable experience. But, it was a lot to take in being in and around “the city that never sleeps.” I loved being in that New York state of mind while I was there, but I am so happy to be back home in Georgia! I can take my sweet time doing what I need to do and getting where I need to go. The leisurely stroll we have here is so much more my speed than the sprinting I had to do in New York.

Well, that was a quick overview of my latest journey, but I still have so much more to tell y’all about my time in New York City. Take a look at some of what I got to do. Be sure to come back soon to find out more about my adventures in the Big Apple. Thanks for stopping by, and as always, happy travels!

    I am the owner of JustCBD Store company (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently seeking to expand my wholesale side of company. I am hoping someone at targetdomain can help me . I considered that the most suitable way to do this would be to talk to vape companies and cbd retail stores. I was hoping if someone could recommend a qualified web site where I can buy Vape Shop Business Data I am presently reviewing creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. On the fence which one would be the most ideal option and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
