USA Trip 2016 - New York

14 - 29 February 2016

New York was the first stop of my big USA trip of 2016.
It was a place I'd visited before but it's magic lingered in my mind and drew me right back to it. It was always a dream of mine to know New York. Know it and feel comfortable in the big city. I spent 2 weeks there exploring and learning and feeling like I knew it better than anywhere else I'd been, besides Dublin. Dream come true.
