My latest travel to NYC was full of adventure and high energy! I didn’t expect to love New York as much as I do now.
My hometown is 2 hours away from the Detroit airport which made for an early start to my trip at 1:00am early Thursday morning. The shuttle bus was on time and filled with 10 passengers. Out of 10 travellers I managed to hold up entire bus up at the border trying to explain what Meerkat (@AppMeerkat) was. The officer wanted to know how I met my friends and what I was doing with the live streaming. It was probably the most drilling set of questions I’ve had to answer but on top of that, the officer looked up my website! (He may be reading now, so HELLO! 🙂 Mr. Custom’sOfficer!) He was very professional and he thanked me for giving him my information. It was a little awkward on the bus after that, but we made it through.
My 8am flight took off and arrived on time at 10am. Right from the time I collected my bags and exited the airplane I was already pumped full of excitement! It was amazing to see Herbie (@HerbieMerrin) and Betsy (@BetsyBoop35) in real life and we even had time to stop off and see Ricky (@rickysanquiche) before we got to meet up with Nick (@dagadgetguy) for our Olive Garden dinner. I’m still proud to boast that I out ate all three of them and cleared my plate like a true Foody and I cleared the plate again at Applebee’s haha.
I took in all the sights and the action on the streets. Be it by car, bicycle or by foot, the only speed that New Yorkers know is FAST! With Herbie’s driving skills and Betsy’s sass, I quickly felt safe and at home among the Big Apple dwellers.
One of the favourite places I visited was the Fifth Avenue Apple Store
The Apple Store was complete with a clear glass elevator that Nick and I could not resist so we took the elevator up from the enormous underground store.
This was the BEST first day of vacation!! 😀
The couple of days were spent shopping, laughter and great food..
I had an unforgettable time with friends that now feel more like family than anything else. We all bonded in a way that would not have been possible without Meerkat and the magic of the internet.
I miss my dear friends and my Brooklyn home away from home.. but, I will be back…
Much love everyone hope you all have a great weekend! 😉
