NYC Recap

~Welcome to New York~

Jack's Wife Freda

This year for reading week my sister and I planned an impromptu trip to NYC. Within a couple days of my sister suggesting the trip, our hotel and flights were booked. Although I had the option to go to Cuba with my roommates, I'm so glad that I decided to spend with my sister since we rarely get to see each other. Since the weather was so nice, we ended up walking just about everywhere and had the loveliest time. Afterwards, we met up with my parents in Collingwood. We we're supposed to go skiing but the weather was too mild so we just ended up relaxing, playing games, eating, and going for a hike. My boyfriend and his parents met up with us, which made the trip that much better. Now I am back at school stressing about life and wishing I was back on holiday!

Day 1
Where We Went:
-Taylor Swift Experience at the Grammy Museum (my sister's idea, not mine...)

What We Ate: 
-For dinner we went to an Italian restaurant called Lupa near NYU, which was AMAZING. I had the spinach salad and I honestly didn't know that salad could taste so good. I also the pork belly tortellini, which is hands down the best tortellini I've ever had in my life. 10/10 would recommend.
