Here is the second part of my trip to New York City. I wanted to show you two emblematic places of NYC in a different post because I had a LOT of pictures I wanted to share from the Brooklyn Bridge and the Rockefeller Center. The girls and I were really lucky because at both these places we witnessed a beautiful sunset. Here is a little anecdote: The day we decided to go up to the top of the Rockefeller, we had planned going in the afternoon. We got there at the end of the day and thought: maybe we could stay until the sun sets? So we did and we had a great time. The four of us actually agreed that was our favorite memory of the trip.
Since I was in the US doing my year abroad, I knew I had to go visit New York City at some point. I decided to spend part of spring break there, with three of my best friends from Europe that came over to see me. Those were the eight BUSIEST days of my life. Just picture us, we hadn’t seen each other for a while, had so much to catch up on and so many places to go visit. I had always wanted to visit NY and what better than with them, walking around and laughing all day long. It is, in my opinion, a very unique city. At many levels, but more than anything, because of its architecture. From what one of the girls told me, since she had been to NY twice already, NYC is very different in the winter and the summer. Well, for my first time there, we got a snowy and really cold version of New York. Let me tell you that walking around in cold weather for around ten hours a day, had us frozen every night, back in the hotel room. Absolutely FROZEN. Here are pictures from the first part of my trip : Manhattan, Brooklyn and Soho.
On December 25th 2018, we took off and flew to Cozumel, a small island of Mexico. We escaped for one week, to a beautiful corner of the world. For the first time of my life, I spent Christmas on the beach! From beaches to small restaurants, I absolutely loved the vibe of this tiny island. The island is so small, it only takes about an hour to get from one end to the other. As we were driving along the east coast, I got to see the most beautiful water I had ever seen.
I am so happy I got the opportunity to study abroad for my last year of high school. I spent a year in a beautiful place, the North of Georgia. I went to a boarding school called Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School, a school surrounded by the mountains. I had always lived in a city, and I think it has been an incredible experience to discover a complete different background. Here are some pictures of my year spent abroad…
