So last week I spent a few nights in the Upper West Side. At this hostel to be exact. On Thursday the 29th I arrived at 8pm, the view from the plane was amazing. It looked like the whole city was covered in billions of lights.
Even though I was tired, my jetlag woke me up around 4am and I sadly couldn’t sleep after that. New York City indeed never sleeps. There were sounds of trucks and people singing, a huge contrast with the small and quiet town I live in.
After a while I wasn’t tired anymore: I was excited to explore New York! Planning isn’t really my thing when I travel, so I just walked around the neighbourhood with my PSL.
Around noon I took the first Subway I saw. ‘Hey, this one is going to Times Square, let’s go there!’ Times Square is impressive. There are so many lights and people and everything makes noise. Ofcourse I had to take a picture with the people dressed as random characters from TV shows.
Spotted: a huge H&M. I thought the H&M in Amsterdam was big but this was just wow… I didn’t know where to start. I grabbed a few cute tops and went to the dressing rooms. Which are beautiful, I mean look at this wall!
I didn’t buy anything because I am very picky about clothes lately. After this I realized I hadn’t eaten all day. I was probably too excited about finally being in New York City that I totally forget about breakfast. And lunch.
I realize this post is gonna be very long if I tell you about my whole week. So I thought I would call this part one, next week there will be a part two with more pictures! Hope you enjoyed reading this.
