I got the chance to visit New York City at Christmas 2017. What an amazing city! There is always something going on, so alive. I was pleasantly surprise at how easy it is to navigate around the city, the easy to follow street names add to a joyful experience. You are constantly surrounded by people and although at times this can be stressful, here it's not. Although you may not speak to anyone there is a common understanding among all. No matter what you need there is always somewhere near by to fulfil your need. If you go to New York in the winter, bring at least four layers!!
