From the heart of Times Square

There are simply no words to sum up Times Square. It’s immensely huge, alive with energy, pulsing with the lives of so many different people, full of culture and most of all, excitingly overwhelming. Everywhere you turn, there’s something new to explore and something new to see. I loved being in the heart of the city and staying right near the adventurous side of it all.

Better to see something once, than to hear about it a thousand times.

Times Square is consumed with so many lights, flashing billboards, colors and crowds of people. It was such an interesting mix of tourists and city regulars. I absolutely loved the diversity of it all.

Falling in love with the kind of traveling that leaves you speechless and turns you into a storyteller.

Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you- it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, and on your heart. You take something with you and hopefully, you leave something good behind.

You can recreate yourself as many times as there are cities in the world. I think it’s for that reason we all love to travel.

You get a strange feeling when you leave a place, you’ll not only miss the people but the person you are at this time and place because you know you’ll never be this way ever again.

The world is far too big to stay in one place, life is too short to do just one thing.

Living for moments I can’t put into words.

So many places to shop! This was by far the biggest Forever 21 I’ve ever seen.

The famous Carlo’s Bakery from TLC’s hit show Cake Boss! I’m definitely calling this adventure our bucket list trip because I literally got to go to so many places and see and do so many things that I have always wanted to. Seeing the Cake Boss shop in person was such a neat experience.

We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone.

Oh New York, you were truly a wondrous delight. There is no other city I would put up with crazy amounts of traffic and people other than you. You made my first time exploring the East Coast unforgettable and everything inside me is counting down the moments until I can go back. You showed me so much in so little time, but most importantly – in the world through which I travel, how I am endlessly creating myself.

Taylor Swift was right when she said it was an electric city that will fill you with wide eyed optimism, endless potential and possibilities. Like her song “Welcome to New York” says, “Like any great love, it keeps you guessing. Like any real love, it’s ever-changing. Like any true love, it drives you crazy. But you know you wouldn’t change anything, anything, anything.”
