a traveler: New York


it's been a while since i update my blog, i've been working hard on my next life project is hard to find time to take photos anymore! but here i am, finding some time to share with you about my last adventure :) in my blogs i mention a lot how traveling is so soothing and relieving, it doesn't even get tiring to repeat it again because every time i travel i convince myself that there's so much more to it than just being a tourist. traveling, is a way to discover new things, new feelings, new parts of you, you didn't even know they were there, and sometimes, it is a way to discover old things that somehow just come afloat when you're wandering the unknown. 

i'm not the most articulate writer, but i try as much as possible to convey how i see the world, and at the same time how the world sees me, so here:

New York, a new place, a massive state, and a perfect place to get lost. i traveled to NY on december 2011, spent Christmas there. the reason why i wanted to visit NY in this particular time of the year was because i wanted it to be my scape, my comfort zone, somewhere i would go and just forget about my surroundings just for a while. i wanted New York to be my twilight zone.

i'm pretty sure many people have been to NY, and everyone sees it differently. i personally, fell in love with it because of the night lights... so beautiful, they made me feel so peaceful even though it's an incredibly loud city, in my mind everything was mute...

Chrysler Building from 5th avenue 
 even used a cop's hat! haha
 Time  Square, the busiest place i've visited so far... and it was soooo incredibly cold. i was told that because of all the light from the ads the temperature inside TS is 2 degrees higher.
 Marriot Marquis view rotating bar... extremely expensive but def worth for a one time thing ;)
 3 hours to go up the Empire State Building to see this? TOTALLY WORTH IT!
