#1 of 12 Trips In 2016- New York City

January 13, 2016

Hey Guys,

2016 is here and the 12 in 12 adventure is off to a start.

First up, New York City for the weekend on a much needed girls trip.  My friend Debbie, soon to be Dr. Debbie, is interviewing for her Surgery Residency program. Over the past couple of months she has interviewed in different cities and our group of friends decided we had to accompany her on at least one of her interviews. New York seemed like the perfect city for a mini get-away and so first week of 2016 had us jetting off to the big apple.

It was a great weekend for all of us to catch up with old and new friends while exploring the city, and enjoying her charm. I finally saw my child-hood friend Aisha after about 11 years. Thanks to social media we have kept in touch, so it was like no time had passed. The weekend was fun, and a great way to kick off the year of fun and adventurous travels.

What we got up to:

•Comedy show at Dangerfield’s

•Prancing around time square like the typical tourists that we are

•Late night Ramen stop at Totto Ramen (Legit the best Ramen I’ve had in my life… just writing this has me drooling)

•Saturday morning yoga with my friend, Susan, at Yoga To The People in Upper West Side

•Hillsong Service in Times Square

•Brunch at Cafe Orlin in the village

•My first Cuban sandwich at Margon

• Drinks at the W Hotel

• Dinner at Trattoria Trecolori


Enjoy the pictures…

      1. Hell Shay,

        Thanks for stopping bye my goal is to share as many pictures and experiences so you can be motivated to explore the world yourself.

    1. I cannot begin to articulate how happy I am to have gone on this trip and how fantastic of a job Gate 1 Travel did with planning it out, from beginning to end.
