Manhattan, I Love Ya!

My day started as any other. Breakfast, shower, brush teeth, get dressed, then hit the road to explore!

It was a rather cold but clear day and I felt like a trip to New York City. To get there, I took the train from Jersey City to Manhattan for $2.50 USD. After a fifteen minute or so ride, I arrived in The Big Apple and met up with a cousin of mine for some sightseeing.

We did some shopping on 42nd street before jumping aboard the shuttle to Times Square. Everything there was glitzy and glamorous, making it difficult to decide what to photograph first. Hands deep in pockets in attempt to ward off the freezing temperatures, we strolled around for the better half of an hour, just soaking in the awesome atmopshere.

Then as the sunlight faded into night, I was treated to a spectacular view of the Empire State Building:

Can you tell that I had a great time? I will make sure that the next time I visit, it will be during the summer months. Winter is beautiful, but I’m a sunshine baby inside!!

About Jodi

I absolutely love to travel. Most days, it's hard to focus on anything else. However, I'd like to change my travel style from now on. I have always been a 'safe' traveler, with hotel reservations made, cruise vacations and a set timetable. I want to break out of that habit, and become an independent backpacker. This blog will serve to document my aspirations to experiment with traveling solo, around the world!
