The city that never sleeps inspires so many people because of the amount of things we can find in one place. As soon as I got off the plane, I looked out the airport doors, saw all the snow falling, and the streets full of yellow cabs I thought: this will be quite an adventure! It certainly was.
Being on my own was the best because I got to do all the (sometimes silly) things I wanted to, such as walking around the Village looking for the building used on “Friends”, or going to the cinema to watch a film just because I like the leading actress, without having to worry whether someone else would want to do that or not.
It’s also an opportunity to do things you probably wouldn’t if there were acquaintances around (such as walk with your mouth open and your tongue out trying to taste snow :P).
However, what really made those days memorable was the fact that I could merge into the culture of the place and experience its day-to-day life as it is. And that was only possible because I can speak their language. Here’s a snippet of what it was like to be in the Big Apple by myself.
