I’m one of the lucky ones who could call Alexandria Old Town home at some point in my life. It’s been a bit less than a year since we moved more south , just about 40 minutes further down Virginia and there’s not a day that I don’t miss Alexandria.
I have to admit, even if I'm enjoying the quarantine and trying to be productive as much as I can... I can't stop thinking about those better days.
Can you believe it's May already? Just in two weeks I was supposed to be at the Boston Calling Festival having the time of my life. Meanwhile we are all stuck at home. Trip was cancelled, obviously...
I keep on working harder than ever. It feels like everyone is enjoying their time at home and wasting time binge watching Netflix while I'm busier than ever.
I hope everyone is enjoying my last few post about these awesome cities. I've got to admit I was not a fan of New York at the first time. I was expecting to be amazed, then I was a bit disappointed but then I started coming back and I realized there's so much more to it than just the Times Square or souvenir stores. At some point New York started really growing onto me and now I love spendinhg there my weekends with some friends. The key to it I guess is soing all touristy things at once and then moving on to discovering the real city. So let’s come back to New York!
Last year I somehow ended up going to New York about 3 times in a very short period of time. Since my husband was new to the city I had to plan carefully where to take him and how t satisfy his apetite for this huge city during only one weekend we had over there. One of the times I visited the city was to meet up with my parents who have never been to the USA before. Can you imagine that? First time in this big country and straight to the Times Square? That's what I call a real American Dream. Usually that's also where it ends since the crowds start attacking you and you end up hating all the human kind after 5 minutes of being there.
I’ve got to say I loved waking up in London. That city was giving me a great vibe and that was probably the most active and productive time of my life. I had so much fun exploring the city and doing some weekend trips to other parts of England when I was off. It was also the most independent period in my life so far.
