Empire State of Mind

These past days I’ve found myself with such an extreme wanderlust. I just want to leave all my responsibilites behind and go out in the world to explore. Mainly big cities. I’ve always preferred a city vacation rather than lying on the beach in some place that looks excactly like any other charter location, with the same bars and the same people.

In the cities you can find so many aspects that fascinate you. I love different city motives, like interesting architecture, funny people and the raving city life in general. These days it’s excactly 3 years since my family and I went to New York, and oh, am I longing back. It’s such a big city and I feel like I didn’t even explore half of it. It is definitelyΒ on the top list of cities I want to go back to.

Sitting here having a walk down memory lane and dreaming of going back I thought I’d share some of my favorite pictures that I took from our trip with you.

//TOP OF THE ROCK/ROCKEFELLER CENTER:

I actually preferred this to the Empire State Building, just because Empire State is so crowded. The view from Empire State Building is a must as well, though.

To me, even though I loved New York, the city tends to get a little bit overwhelming and suffocating due to the high buildings and the city air. Therefore it was really nice to enjoy the fresh sea air at the dock of Battery Park.

The High Line is basically a park built on an elevated section of an disused railroad in New York. This was one of my favorite walks that we had. I love how concrete and bricks were mixed with green leaves and flowers.

  2. Dubai and new york are my dreaming places. I never been there before, but I would like to. Or I’ll visit soon ❀
    Its complicated when you living 2500km away from your family, so when I'm on my holidays I only want to go to visit my family, to times a year 😦 so sad.. but I decided that from next year I'm gonna visit more places instead to go only to my country. so dubai and new york are on the list (so exciting) ❀
