Day One (Part One): The second country I will be visiting in North America, is New York! I always wanted to visit New York. I would also refer it to as 'The City That Never Sleeps', because it's always so active especially at night. Basically, the city never sleeps. I'm always in Mississauga, Ontario Canada so I rarely get to leave my own city. Now, I finally get to see what it's like living in New York! , New York, the city so great they named it twice, goes by many other names as well. Probably most interesting to the traveler is the unofficial declaration of being the "world's capital." New York is the largest city in the USA, the fourth largest city in the world, and one of the most ethnically diverse cities on earth. The city is made up of five boroughs: Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, The Bronx and Staten Island. New York is the largest city in the state of New York and with a lively atmosphere it is a city worth visiting. The city is packed with museums, theaters, top class restaurants and shops. It only takes an hour and a half to get to New York, so for now, I open up my phone to look for hotels and attractions to go to on my three-day visit. So far, I will be staying in 'The London NYC' hotel, which is a four star hotel for $622 per night. The attractions I will also be going to is Central Park, Statue of Liberty, and Times Square. After an hour and a half, I arrive at the LaGuardia Airport and go to the 'Departures' area. I then make my way down to the exit and call a taxi to go to 'The London NYC' hotel to drop off my luggage and start my day off at the Central Park!
Day One (Part Two):
After dropping my luggage off, it's about 10:00 a.m, already in New York, I still have time to explore New York. I was a bit hungry, so I quickly ate breakfast at the lounge. I was planning on going to Central Park in the evening, so for now, I decided to relax at my hotel for a bit. While I was at my hotel, I just relaxed in the lobby for a bit and went on my phone to upload the pictures I took from the past few countries I visited on Facebook. I wanted to take as much pictures as I can so that I can look back at the fun experiences I've had visiting that country/region. From there, I decided to go in the indoor swimming pool the hotel had and go swimming for a little bit. I not only loved eating and sleeping, but I also love swimming as well, I think that's why I always have to go swimming at the pools the hotels I've been to has. After a couple of hours, I changed into different clothes, and went to go eat lunch at a close fast-food restaurant. When I was finished, I began walking to the Central Park, which was only fifteen minutes away from where I currently was. Since it was a beautiful sunny day out, it was perfect to go to the Central Park today. When I arrived, I noticed how large the park was. It was bigger than I imagined. There was so much to do and see at the park! I felt as if I could walk in the park for days. There's turtle ponds, sculptures, sports areas, castles, lakes, theaters, and many more. There are also biking, horse and cart tours there too! The Central Park was really peaceful, I felt as if I could live there. The park was perfect to visit to go for a nice stroll, jog or run with some friends. I took my time just enjoying all of the amazing sights. I spent hours and hours at the park just walking around, enjoying the sights, I completely forgot about the time, it was getting dark already! I began to head back to my hotel, went to the lounge to have some dinner then go to my room. I then changed into my PJs and went to sleep after a long day.
I wake up at 11:00 a.m, brush my teeth and get ready to explore New York City on my second day! Today, I'll be visiting the Statue of Liberty which is the most known statue in New York. I head down to the lobby to eat breakfast. When i'm done my breakfast, I go outside for my afternoon walk. While walking, I decided to go to the Staten Island Shopping Mall, and shop for some souvenirs. I shopped for a couple of hours and then ate at the food court. Once I was finished with that, I called a taxi to make my way to the Statue of Liberty. The statue was really far, so I had to take a taxi, I think it was gonna take about an hour or two to get there. After I arrive, I bought my ticket and went straight to the statue. I bought crown access tickets so I got to see everything. I got to tour through the mini-museum. I very much enjoyed this part of my trip to NYC. The weather was beautiful, the views were beautiful, it was fabulous. The good thing about going to the Statue of Liberty was that it made me feel American even though I was Canadian. The views from the crown were beautiful especially on a nice day out. I took a bunch of pictures while I was at the statue. I was there for hours, and I had to head back to my hotel quickly. It was dark already. I then called a taxi to back to my hotel, then when I arrived, I ate breakfast, went to my room and slept.
I wake up at 11:00 a.m, brush my teeth and get ready to explore New York City on my last day! Today i'll be visiting Times Square this time. Times Square is a major commercial intersection in New York. I'll be going there at night because I heard it looks more beautiful at night. I first head down to the lobby to eat breakfast. When I'm finished, I decided to go to Staten Island Shopping Mall to do more shopping. Today, I don't know exactly what to do until night, so I'm finding things to do to kill time. When I'm finished my shopping, I'll go out for an afternoon walk around the block. Once I'm done with my afternoon walk, I'll head back to my hotel, eat lunch, then take a nap for a bit. When I woke up, it was about 7:00 p.m, which was perfect to start walking to Times Square. By the time I get there, it'd be really dark which will make everything stand out. Times Square is only a thirty minute walk from my hotel, so I might as well begin heading there. When I got there, I was really mesmerized. I began taking a bunch of pictures, just everything looked so alive. Times Square is definitely my favorite place I visited on my trip to New York. Everything felt magical, with all the animated billboards. It's something you wouldn't see everyday. Times Square just has a fantastic atmosphere. After spending several hours at Times Square, I walked back to my hotel. It was starting to get really late, it was 11:00 p.m. After I got back to my hotel, I packed my luggage, changed into my PJs and went to sleep.
Day Four (Departure from New York City, United States, to Cancun, Mexico):
I wake up at 6:00 a.m, brush my teeth, get ready, get my luggage and head down to the lobby to have some quick breakfast. When I'm done with that, I call a taxi to go to LaGuardia Airport. After I get there, I'll go to the 'Departure' area and line up where people are lined up to enter the plane. After an hour, I finally board the plane, set my luggage on the rack and take a nap as the plane leaves New York City.
