‘Hello spring, goodbye winter’, says New York City!

Winter, or whatever is left of it, is season where days are spent sipping hot cup of coffee and nights are spent cuddling. And we say hello to spring, NYC has some winter-y and outdoorsy stuff for you to still do, if you can brave the cool wind. And if you are with your special someone, where else would you want to be? New York can bring out little stories of with its mighty charm.

Start by watching an early morning sunrise from Newport

With the clouds hovering above, sun is a very rare sight. But watching the sun coming over a slight hue of orange and the Manhattan skyline standing tall and proud, it is a sight from another world. If you can’t think of a better way, Newport is perfect for you. The Boardwalk that starts from the PATH station can be your spot to jog and experience the radiance of NYC.

Although, this walk is not seasonal, doing it at the onset of spring when it’s not too hot, not too cold is the equivalent of perfection. The symmetry, the reflections, the little locks on its side, the view- all are testament to the beauty this 1880s monument is. You could catch sight of the skyline, and far away in the distance stands the glory and pride of the free America- Lady Liberty. Make sure you carry a lock if you want an everlasting bond with you and your partner! *wink*

Take a stroll in Central Park

 

Central Park is the place you go to if you want to witness life in New York. And I literally mean LIFE. Between the concrete jungle and busy schedule, there’s not much time to stop and look around. In here, you can. You will find couples strolling, or a bunch of friends goofing around, you might also come across one or two Mozarts in the making. There’s just so much to do in Central Park.

Because let’s face it. We might curse winter as much as we can, but it’s still the most romantic, beautiful and cosy season of all. And as we welcome spring, we can nothing but cherish the last few cool days!

Why must you travel?

“I’m not a good tourist, I generally don’t know where I am going, don’t have an itinerary, that’s why I prefer to be a Traveler!”

Stop what you’re doing. Clear your mind and THINK! It’s a question worth pondering over.

Why must you travel?

Do you travel to escape? Or to run away? Do you travel for a break? Or do you travel because you can? It’s true. Travelling is all that. But, travelling is just not all that.

Travelling is so much more- travelling is feeling the breeze of different place every day; it’s getting Goosebumps each time you explore a new land or discover the same old place again; Travelling is calling the world your home- being drawn to the nomadic way of life; it is embracing each and every stranger as your own; it is never resting, never tripping, never falling and never stopping.

For me, travelling is passion, life in itself. It is seizing each day in a new place, a new country, a new destiny! It is waking up and facing the uncertainty. It’s having a global nationality. Travelling is exploring your soul.

Travel is freedom- and I urge you if you can, leave everything aside, explore a new place, travel alone. Sure, we all have husbands and boyfriends and family, but as a girl I know for sure before the burden of life falls on you- travel! Gain a little insight, meet new people, live through cultures and do whatever the hell you want- ALONE!

Because Travelling isn’t just limited to the experience, it will speak for itself with the adrenaline through your heart, the symphonies of the world creating the beatings of your heart, and the gush you get with the blood flowing through your veins.  And that’s why you must travel.

Re-explore, re-discover, re-live- because I want to fly, I want to run, and I even want to fall … I just don’t want to stop.
