I get asked a lot about which city has been my preference to live in, what the best part was, what the worst part was. In reality I have loved them all, and the friends and memories I have from each city are different but equally cherished (lol lame). But the best thing I got, came from living abroad in general because it teaches you … Continue reading What you learn when you live abroad.
Shortly after starting my stint in New York, I wrote this blog post on what you should do with visitors or if you go on holiday there. Well, after having completed my year, I feel like I have a better idea of the best places to go. I get asked recommendations all the time, and instead of giving a huge list, I put together this … Continue reading A comprehensive list of places to go in New York.
You know when you wake up with horrific sunburn and your skin feels like sand paper on the sheets? Well that was all of us on day 2. The sun was shining though, so that meant another trip to the beach. Boiled egg in hand (thanks mumma muller), off we trotted down the tropical roads to find a postcard perfect spot. Look at us all … Continue reading Bermuda (pt2)
You know when you’re sitting at your desk at work and you just wish you could book a cheap flight to the Caribbean to escape? Well being only a few hours and a couple of hundred dollars away really helps in actually making that happen. We gathered together on a dreary, cold, Sunday evening and just booked our flights. It was only after we booked … Continue reading Bermuda (pt 1)
The beauty of living in New York is that sometimes if you just hold out enough hope, dreams come true. I’d had in my head since I got there that I wanted to spend 4th July in the Hamptons. I tried everything I could to make it happen, but in the end rounding up people and a place (that was within budget) just proved impossible. … Continue reading The Hamptons
A little over a year ago, I wrote a post called Moving Forward. It was about leaving university and moving a couple thousand miles away to New York to start my first graduate job. You’ll know from my last blog post that I had the most amazing year in New York and was sad to return to reality. However, I decided I didn’t really like … Continue reading New Adventures
So I’m going to try and not make this overly sappy, because that’s lame, but this really has been one of the best years of my life. If you want a visual image to go with this statement, picture me sobbing in JFK airport while treating glass of wine like it’s orange juice. I have managed to cram a ridiculous amount of things in which … Continue reading Nostalgia at it’s finest – a year in New York
I’m going to try a new feature here where I post about some secrets spots that I love in New York. I can’t guarantee that this will be a common feature, but I’ll try. Mr Fish is the best sushi takeout spot in mid-town (and maybe New York). It’s also technically not called Mr Fish (it was re-named Roll & Katsu Kitchen). Myself, Lauren, Keelan … Continue reading Secret Spots: Mr Fish
I told Talor she really needed to try some Korean BBQ whilst she was in New York, and she obliged. We headed to Gaonnuri, which is on the fancier end of the Korean BBQ you can get in Korea town, mostly because of the view you get (its on the 39th floor). You step into what appears to be an office building, and are greeted … Continue reading Gaonnuri
Hoboken is a great place to go when you don’t want to venture into the city but you’re looking for good food and a few drinks. One such spot here is Charritos. The teeniest tiniest restaurant, it is always packed – and for good reason. Talor and I popped in with the hope that they would have a table to spare, and the wait time was … Continue reading Charritos
