This is a short brief of my first day before the long posts with facts and helpful tips. This post is only made to give you some insight into what I have been doing , and it’s purpose is only to act like a diary. It is not actually an intended blog post about the city, I will do those during this week, but here are some photos and exoeriences to keep you interested 😀
So my first day in New York was probably not so interesting. I landed around 11 am and the sun was shining. I was so very excited to finaly see New York with my own eyes. I flew to New York directly with Air Serbia but I will write a dedicated post about that flight separatley. It was really great!
Arriving to New York was actually a great experience. The yellow cabs have fixed fairs of 52$ plus tolls. Journey was pretty straight forward and I was able to pay everything with card.
I arrived to my hotel. I stayed with the Hotel Giraffe. They are placed in Manhattan, aparently very good location if you want to do some sightseeing. I will write about my accomodation seperatley as well.
We managed to walk some the first day, getting all the way to Time’s square. It looks totaly different in real life then in pictures. I imagined it to be bigger, but it is actually not that big. The streets leading up to it are huge, wide and very crowdy. It was a very interesting walk.
My feet started aching so we decided to have some food at the Hard Rock Caffe. We only ordered one starter becaus that portion was humangous! After we ate it , we walked back to the hotel.
I was very tired from the flight and everything, I decided to lay down before going out that night, but that was a mistake, because I woke up the next day.
