New York City – One of My Favorite City Breaks

I’m super fortunate to live close enough to New York City to dash off for a quick overnight or two and get my fill of a BIG city break. I love Boston but there’s nothing like New York. A few weeks ago, mid-week, I popped down there with a couple of my girlfriends. We had a great time be-bopping around the city and catching up with a few Big Apple friends.

An Amsterdam Virgin

It’s true that I’m a pretty well traveled person but I still haven’t been MANY places. Amsterdam was one of them, with the exception of flying through its airport to connect to somewhere else in Europe probably twice a year. It has been on my short list for some time and I decided I really wanted to make it there in 2013. Fortunately, I had some traveling companions in my friends, Ana, Mary Anne and Ashley, all frequent travelers and travel writers. Mary Anne was also an Amsterdam virgin and we were both super excited to see what all the hubbub was about with this city.

My Year in Travel – 2013

BUT, for me, the VERY BEST thing about this year in travel are all the wonderful people who I met or was reunited with in various locations around the world. My travels wouldn’t be anything without the people on my journey.

9 Dirty Travel Confessions Anyone who says constant traveling is easy is lying. Clearly, I love it and maybe it’s partially because of the challenge of it all. Even the little things can be difficult. Packing strategies, airport security, jet lag, traveling to an unknown place. But the reward for the stress of these types of things is so much greater. AND even if I choose to showcase the more glam and fun side of things, there are a few travel confessions I have that I think may surprise you. read more @ http://www.lolastravels.com/9-dirty-travel-confessions/
