New York Itinerary For 6 Days


Finaly, I found time to write down my itinerary for New York. This trip happened in September 2017. I looked forward to this trip so much that I really do not know why I was not able to put in on paper (online). Maybe because it was such an intense trip for me.

I had known I would go to New York and I had high expectations. However, I was not disappointed at all. I planed our trip very well as I usually do. We had almost a week to spend in New York which is enough if you know you get back there.

New York trip was my gift for myself before my 30's birthday. Maybe that was also one of the reason I got so much emotional. 2017 was a tough year for me. I decided to quit my beloved job and jump to a different field of business and management level. I was (and honestly, I still am) confused.

Just a short note... turning 30 was a big deal for me. Since I live alway 2 years in advance (believe me I try to avoid it as much as I can). I felt like my fun life is going to the end and there will be no more traveling to far destinations easiness and childhood. Silly, I know. But I really felt the it is time to adult and I always felt more like a child or free spirit with no limits. Anything was possible... And I started to feel that I am maybe too old for some things which is totally bullshit... But this all influenced my life and esp. my trip to New York. Because as we all know... this is the Big Apple where all dream come true.

Oh... and now let's talk about New York.

We to the city on Saturday. From the JFK we went by public transport which was bit hectic since the fast train was under reconstructions. As we stood of the subway for the first time, we could smell the mood of the city. I was amazed. We had dinner at Umami Burger which is a great chain all over the US. The sweet potato fries have been so far the best fries I have ever tasted. After we headed to see Time Square during night which is fabulous.

Most of the week we spent by walking in the city. Our hotel was in Queens with good location (15 mins by public transport to Times Square). The room was nice and the breakfast was OK.
