If you follow me on Instagram (link here) you have probably seen some of my pictures of my visit to New York City. It was a short of holiday of two weeks, but as New York City is know as the city that never sleeps, I saw and did some much that it felt like a months holiday. It is now two weeks later that I am back and I finally feel that I have recovered from the exhaustion of being out and about from 7 in the morning to 2 at night everyday for two weeks straight. And that is not including get lag. But if I had to choose I would do it all over again. You just do not go to New York to stay all day laying in your hotel room. The rush you get when you are there, makes it feel like the hour is just flying by.
Here are some of my favourite pictures.
Time Square by night
Midtown Manhattan was where I spent most of my time. Being on Time Square and looking at the famous Time Square ball awaiting it’s moment to shine and drop on new years eve, watching people hailing down yellow taxi cabs. People in evening dresses going to musicals. Street vendors selling fake Prada & Louis Vuitton. Having dinner in the middle of time square at Olive Garden are some of my favourite memories of Manhattan.

During my holiday I went to the US Open to see the 2017 women’s and men’s semifinal. Watching the defending champion and world highest ranked tennis player Rafael Nadal from Spain was e real treat. And seeing American CoCo Vandeweghe currently ranked number 20th beating Karolina Pilskavo world’s highest ranked was super unexpected, but so much fun watch.

I was also able to visit the 9/11memorial and the rebuilded 1 world trade center also known as freedom tower and spend some time catching up with my childhood friend who know lives in New York City. All in all I had the most amazing time in New York, New York.
