I went to visit the USA for a second time almost a year ago. It was a three weeks’ vacation mostly solo travel but also some days with friends and family. Since a friend of mine studied near Chicago I choose to not only spend the time in New York, my next Saturday blog is going to be about this visit, but also have a five day visit to this city I have never been to before. I am glad that flights in the USA are so cheap. I was great to see my friend and explore China Town with him but the visit wasn’t at all what I planned. I had really bad luck with the weather, it was raining and storming most of the time. I tried to make the best out of it exploring some art in diverse museums and tried to spent as much time as possible outside exploring. At least the first day was nice.
Since in New York I was in a hostel or staying with my cousin and also a weekend with my family in Vineland I needed some privacy. That is why this time I booked a room on my own with shared kitchen and bathroom. It was half an hour north from the center with the train, but it was a cute area and I spent most of the day out of the room anyway. But that way the room was actually cheaper than a hostel bed.
In the following here you have some pictures, the ones I could take without purring sky 😉
My bad luck on this trip didn’t end with the weather to ruin my trips but also my return to New York. The storm was so big that ALL flights to New York got canceled. This is the bad part about booking with a cheap airline, is hat no refunds so I payed more than double price for the return ticked than the plane ride both ways and got an almost 24-hour train ride back to New York. It was a Tuesday morning but I returned Wednesday night instead. The first flight would have been on Thursday but they where not sure if it would take off, so I took the long ride and was so glad when I returned to New York. But well, not everything can go well all the time I suppose…
