I have had the privilege of visiting New York City for three out of the last four years. Many places can be exaggerated but in my mind, New York City cannot be. There is a magic about the place; an energy, an optimism and youthfulness amongst her people. NYC draws you in and you leave already plotting your next trip back. It definitely isn’t perfect but it has attracted the adventurers and dreamers and they make the story of the city more beautiful.

Our goal is to always make sure we explore at least one new area on each visit (this year included the Lower East Side, the Brooklyn Bridge and Dumbo). Every street has something to search out and discover; every area its own unique character. New York is full of colourful people but this time I found myself captivated by the beauty of the architecture more than ever before.
