I am not a great tourist. I think I get caught in the idea that is ridiculous to spend so much money looking at where other people live. Don’t get me wrong, I love traveling far and wide, but I love having a mission while I’m there. This is why my trip to NYC (my first time there ever) is so amazing. I am going for work, and it is work that will keep me right on the streets, soaking up the place, in quite a touristy way. It is without a doubt the best of both worlds.
My new, shiny suitcase is filled with all my summer clothes; vests, cotton Tai-chi pants, sleeveless dresses. I have sunscreen in my toiletry bag. I am armed with an enormous list of must dos. I am going with one of my long time besties. My Kindle is charged and I have two new books loaded. I have good music on my iPod. Midtown Manhattan will have a brand new visitor.
I will also get to visit my Tante B in Stamford. Watch out Tante B. We’ll see you on the other side of this!
