travel | Manhattan

Hi lovelies,

today I want to share some more impressions from my trip to New York City one week ago. I can remember it really well that it can’t have been too long ago as I am still fighting with some kind of jet lag.

It is impossible to be in Manhattan without finding some time to let this big city impress you. In my opinion the best way to “learn” something about a city is just by walking, so after I completed my mission on Wednesday I changed my clothes at the hotel (which was at 11th Ave crossing 48th Street) and walked to Times Square.

These Zeppelins were developed and built in Friedrichshafen at Lake Constance, which is just twenty kilometres from where I live and work.

Have a wonderful time!

  1. You were at New York?? How did you enjoy it! It must be overwhelming with so many things going on. It still amazed me that you walked almost the entire city instead of making use the of the metro. Even though I understand that the metro can be confusing and take you somewhere you had no intention to me. At least that was what happened to me couple times. I hope you enjoyed the city and return for some good food next time!

        1. Hi Patty,
          I hope I will 🙂 Finding yummy places is really something difficult in such cities especially as the well known places are not always the best and the really great ones are real secrets.
