Welcome to New York, it’s been waitin’ for you. ❤️
As anyone and their mothers could imagine, I live a very chaotic, high performance, spontaneous lifestyle.
I don’t like becoming too comfortable in one place for too long because all I want to do is find a new adventure, meet new people, and experience a different side of the world. My heart literally craves the high and adrenaline rush that comes from always being on-the-go; picking a place on a map and just saying yes.
So naturally, as everyone started asking about my Memorial Day Weekend plans [and realizing how I really hadn’t planned anything at all…] I went to one of my best girlfriends who lives in the heart of Manhattan. We have been talking about me coming to NYC for like, ever, but life’s crazy has gotten in the way more than a couple of times.
It took us a solid ten minutes, give or take, to purchase my tickets and plan a full blown Manhattan girls weekend.
Side note: last week was the most insane work week of my life, I thought I would honestly need through MDW to sleep off the stress. So…
Needless to say, there’s no place I’d rather let loose than THE BIG APPLE!
Lots of people ask me how I can afford these random, last minute trips. Well, I have a travelers trick for y’all. 😜
Two words: Hopper App
Seriously, it’s the greatest. It’s where I bought my Ireland, Iceland, and now New York City round trip tickets — and it’s super easy!
- Download Hopper from your mobile App Store
- Enter your travel to and from destinations
- Voila! Hopper will spit out the lowest rates out there (seriously, sometimes these rates are crazy not to jump on…)
So, to all my wanderlust travel bugs out there — you’ve found your saving grace! I’m not a millionaire and I don’t have a tree of unlimited cash, but I do put a decent chunk of change in my savings account with each paycheck, so if I can find a way to do what I love at 25…you can too. 😘
Obviously, there’s going to be never-ending photos and videos of my Manhattan adventures, so be sure to follow along @alexaraeloebel. New York may be the next city to steal my heart…🌍❤️
