My boyfriend Joseph and I took a 3 night trip to New York City in the early October for our second-year anniversary. Yes, we took our trip during the middle of the government shutdown. Oddly enough, that didn’t falter our trip, except when we wanted to visit the Statue of Liberty and instead had to see the beautiful lady from afar (we took a water tour with an awesome host).
Personally, the trip was surreal. I loved New York with its crowded streets, high-rise buildings, close-quarter shops, and beautiful architecture. What I am not fond of, however, is the feeling of being in the enclosed underground subway. I shudder just thinking about it! I can’t wait till I get to visit the Big Apple again!
