Dreaming of New York

Hey Folks! I am so excited about my internship in New York. I had never been in NY before, (only in my dreams like 100.000 times) but I just love the city! As Aman mentioned on her last post the city has an amazing energy flow where things are happening all the time, like if the city never sleeps.

As Alicia Keys said “I got a pocket full of dream Baby…” and for a dreamer like me, it feels right to say that New York is just the perfect place to be.

I know that there is a lot of talk about “living your dream “and that some people even think its nonsense. I of course believe in living my dreams! But when we think about “living our dreams”, we make the mistake of thinking that everything will be easy, or that there is no effort required in making your dreams come true. Well, that’s not always the case. I know for a fact that I will not be living the “Sex And The City” lifestyle for example… because of my low budget, but I will not let money discourage me because one of the most amazing things about life is that there are so many different ways of reaching your goal. As I mentioned on my last post, travelling can really open your eyes to many delightful things and it is somehow the only thing you can actually purchase that enriches you even more as you gain and cultivate knowledge from different cultures and from the world.

So let NY be an incentive for change! It will turn me upside down & shake all the change out of my pockets, both literally & symbolically but I will live it up to the last drop!

By now, I will leave you with some pictures from my outfit of the day inspired by NY urban lifestyle 😉

A trip down to San Francisco’s hills

After a long flight from Copenhagen (11 hours), we landed in the beautiful Bay Area with bright blue sky and sunny (not always like that). Hello San Francisco!

I stayed at the hotel Marriott Union Square at 480 Sutter Street which was 2 minutes walking to the city centre. I was living at the 21st floor so I had a nice view from my hotel room window.

I was there with Kasper but because he was there with work I had most of the daytime by myself. It was actually nice walking around enjoying the city.

The best part about any trip is the time we get to explore the amazing areas of a city. There’s nothing that makes me feel more alive and excited than discovering something new, getting to know new people and a new culture better. For me that is what travelling is about. It is somehow the only thing you can actually  purchase that enriches you even more as you gain and cultivate knowledge from different cultures and from the world. Somehow it really opens up your eyes for  many delightful things.

We spent 6 days out there and I got to see part of the city, shop and enjoy walking up and down the hills of San Francisco.

Some of my destinations were; walking through Chinatown, which it is the oldest and largest of its kind in North America; Took a ride on the city’s famous cable cars; visited the car cable museum; visited shopping malls and classic American shops like forever 21, Macy’s, DSW (the designer shoe land); tried amazing seafood and walked across the Golden Gate Bridge (the most iconic landmark in San Francisco).

Unfortunately the Museum of Modern Art is closed for improvement and reconstruction, so I was not able to see some of the local art pieces from this museum. I also did not had the chance to visit the Alcatraz prison as I had to buy the ticket days in advance (I went there and the next tickets available were for 26th June), so whenever you going to San Francisco and would like to visit the prison, I recommend that you book or buy tickets in advance. It is also possible, if you are really lucky, to purchase tickets very early morning like 7:30, from people that had cancelled but I would not relay on that because the tickets are limited.

Overall, I had such a great time out there and I would definitely like to go back there again. The city has its charm and magic somehow.

What about you, where is your next destination?

With love,

Noe
