New York



After four consecutive years travelling through Europe and South America, it was now time for us to explore what Northern America had to offer.

New York, the concrete jungle was our first destination. We were fortunate enough to be hosted and made sincerely welcome by our mothers friend May.
Situated in Queens, 40 minutes from Manhattan we had a great apartment and a kitchen that just kept producing amazing American / Haitian meals.

Only having 3 days in this city meant that time was against us, so we hit the ground running. Making good use of the extensive subway system, we were able to visit the touristic hotspots and get a feel of local life by taking a train to a random station, getting lost and finding our way back from there.

A lot of childhood movie memories were bought back to us when exploring this busy city. In particular seeing Times Square come alive through the cover of darkness, observing the business folk of Wall Street rushing to their next big meeting and the leafy Central Park morphed us right into scenes from Home Alone.

The way of life here is large, busy and can be summed up as a city that does not sleep.
Stay classy New York, until next time.
