incredible view from the Top of the Rock
Finally, I want to show you some pictures from my trip to New York City in April.
My friend from university, Laura, & I first met at the airport and then we made it all the way to New Jersey with our luggage. It was heavy as hell and we had to take many many trains to get there! However, it is really great to have friends that you can stay with. We had such an amazing host, she is the sister of my host mum when I was in New Hampshire for a highschool year.
Usually, Laura and I took the NJ Transit to NYC every morning. We bought a weekly pass for like 80 dollars, but it was still way cheaper than a hotel downtown.
While we were in town, Laura and I didn’t really check out famous restaurants like I did in LA with Luisa. We behaved more like tourists – besides some shopping – and did as much sightseeing as our bodies would let us…
This is the result:
9/11 Memorial – thinking of all the victims and their families
early birthday gift: fancy sneakers by MICHAEL KORS
Yum! Pasta with spinach and cheese cooked by our host Diane
the construction of the One World Trade Center
almost self-made cinnamon rolls
Hello from the NJ Transit!
I had to wear layers of sweaters, because it was so freezing!
such an architectural variety, love it!
one of my favorite skyscrapers right at Central Park
