My New York adventure is coming to an end and it feels bittersweet. I’ve been out and about non stop, exploring tourist areas and some hidden treasures of the city. After two weeks, I feel like a New Yorker; I’ve just got to grips with the confusing subway system, learned how to swipe my metrocard properly and eaten my fair share of bagels! Nevertheless, it’s time to embark on the next adventure.

Here are some of the things I got up to and places I visited whilst in New York:
