New York City, Round Two

A few weeks ago, I decided I needed an adventure and headed off to visit two other fellow dreamers living it up in NYC for the summer.  There wasn't too much strategy involved in planning this trip, really I just bought a megabus ticket and took half a week off work and thought, lets do this dance!

Turns out I was able to talk another friend, Leah into hopping on board.  She bought a bus ticket the day-of and all of a sudden I had a travel companion! The spontaneity gave me a great feeling to start out the trip with; I just knew it was going to be good.

And I was right, what a fantastic week spent with people I love.  We ate, we talked, we laughed, and we soaked up every second of our little getaway.  It was a much needed break in different ways for all four of us.  I desperately needed to get away from my desk job and to be reunited with friends I hadn't seen all summer. Leah needed the added bonus of a spontaneous adventure.  And Hannah and Laura just needed some familiar faces in the midst of a freaking huge city to come and say, I love you, I know you, its good to be together.

Hannah and Laura are some brave girls.  I call myself an adventurer but I truly am impressed by their willingness to explore the world.  Laura took off for the summer to work for a design studio and Hannah took a position as a nanny about an hour from the city.  Both went into this alone and daringly embraced the city alone!  I admire them for their boldness and I think their is some beautiful personal growth that comes with learning to enjoy things alone.  As for me, I haven't gotten there quite yet but suppose I will soon enough when I head off to Sydney in January.

Here are a few snapshots from our adventure:::
