New York City in Pictures – Summer Vacation

Hey readers, I can’t believe it’s already fall. Honestly, the only time it felt like summer was when I was in New York City. The Netherlands apparently doesn’t comprehend the idea of summer. It literally went from Spring to a day of Summer and then Fall. Mother Earth, what is happening? Bring back summer to Holland! The only reason why I love the summer in Holland is the small breeze. New York City on the other hand was crazy. It was literally boiling! I felt so sticky and gross but that shouldn’t take away from the fact that the concrete jungle was beautiful crazy.

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I have a lot of pictures posted of my time in New York City. I wasn’t really sure what to do with the pictures, especially considering the fact that I took a picture of almost every single moment on my vacation. I decided to put most of them on Instagram, and I still have a lot left on my computer! So what’s the next viable option? Share all the pictures that I haven’t posted yet from my other two blog posts about New York City in this third New York City blog post!

I hope you don’t mind, but I love sharing pictures and stories. Also, this gives my photos a chance to be seen by people other than myself. Maybe even get some (good or bad) commentary on what I could do next time on my visit in New York City.

I still haven’t seen everything I wanted to see in New York City. So… this just means that I just have to go back. The next time I’m there, I’m doing a foodie trip and a pop culture trip. I feel like in my last trip I did a tourist trip. I saw all the touristy places in New York city, which is great! However, NYC has so much to offer, and I just didn’t get to do everything I wanted to do. So the next viable option would be to go back, and do a theme a trip. Hence the “pop culture trip” and the “foodie trip.” If you could go to New York City, what would be the first you would do or see? Let me know in the comments below!
