You might think that the title is a bit of exaggeration but let's be honest... It's been half a year since we were forced to "stay home" and I don't see the end of it. Again, you might think I'm exaggerating but we all thought it would be gone by summer. Then the summer came along and somehow nothing changed. Now we are going into the fall and all the restrictions seem to come back, stay the same or simply not go away any time soon. It makes me wonder if the travel industry will survive all of that? Are we ever going to travel the way we used to?
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.
Anyone who knows me at all knows that I’ve got a little kind of unhealthy obsession with one city. It all started when I was 14 and my only dream was to get out of Poland and travel the world. At that time I couldn’t even dream about travelling to the USA so I kept it more ‘low key’. I hang a huge canvas picturing the Picadilly Cicrus on my wall and kept starring at it for hours to make my parents feel sorry for me and buy my a trip to London.
