Do you ever travel to the same place?


(This a pic of NYC from my trip in June)

I’m headed back to NYC again.  Yes that’s right as of Thursday (tomorrow) I’m jet setting off to New York City for a three day conference and two days of relaxation.  It’s been 36 days since I’ve been to New York and I can’t wait to go back.

Yesterday when I told my co-worker I’m headed back to New York she asked me “Didn’t you just go there?”  My answer was of course yes because I like to spend as much time as possible in the great city we call New York.  I spent four days in New York in March and took an extra long weekend in the Big Apple in June.  My co-worker’s question seemed a little judgemental and I immediately thought “So what if I am?”

Where is your vacation sweet spot?

As you know I love going to New York City.  Mostly because I like going on vacation and I can get there without taking a long flight and also because it’s just an awesome city.  My motto is “Why try something new when you can just do something you love.”  I would hate to take a vacation and not enjoy myself.  So why not go to NYC where I know I’ll have a good time?!

A lot of people have there go to vacation spot.  Some people go to Florida all winter, some people like to relax in Arizona and others go to Europe.  So where is your favorite vacation spot?

I may be missing out on seeing new places

Yes I understand that by visiting the same place every year or a few times each year I may be missing out on getting to visit other great cities but the truth is I don’t care.  I go to NYC every year because I love it.  It’s not stopping me from going to other great cities in my area such as Boston, Vermont and the state of Maine.  But I choose to go to NYC.

The great thing about New York, and I’m sure you’ll confirm this if you’ve ever been, is that every trip is different.  So yes, even though I visit New York often I have never had two identical experiences.  It’s like visiting the city for the first time every single time I go.  Follow me on Twitter @TahnyaKristina to see all my latest NYC adventures.

New York is so big and there’s so much to do

Some tourists can say the city is hot and dirty, some can say there are too many people and some can say it’s just too crowded – and all of that is true.  I’m not denying that New York is big and bad, but that’s what makes it great.

There’s so much to do that you could spend a week there and never see the same thing or do the same thing twice and that’s why I love it.  This trip I’m going to Brighton Beach and Coney Island in Brooklyn which I’ve never done.

This time I’m staying on the Upper West Side which is by far my favorite neighborhood in the city but I’ve never actually stayed there.  So I’m looking forward to exploring all the shops on Amsterdam Avenue and all the restaurants on Columbus Ave.

Where are you going for your summer vacation?
