Tourist in New York

January, 25, 2017

On my last business trip to New York, I decided to slip in adventures that were the epitome of touristy. Don’t get me wrong… I’m all for experiencing a city just like a local, but there’s a reason why tourists do, in fact, love going to tourist attractions. They’re fun, interesting, filled with people who are traveling and, therefore, often injected with that exploring spirit. In other words, you’ll be mingling with those who are upbeat and ready to make new friends. That’s an aspect that I love whenever I’m in a new place…or, frankly, an old favorite.

So I didn’t think twice when I saw the inviting door of M&M World. Plus, I don’t need much of an excuse to be lured into a place filled floor-to-ceiling with chocolate deliciousness.

And you know that when I entered, I acted exactly like a tourist. I joined in the “M&M line dance” (yes there is one), explored, and sampled way more M&M’s than any nutritionist would condone. I had a blast.

That night, I met up with a friend who is a NYC local, and we went to hubs where the locals like to gather. So I got the best of both worlds on my trip. Oh, New York, I can’t wait until we’re together again!!

PS. In case you’re wondering, I got this Vintage-inspired tee at a market in the SoHo. This place is the mecca for unique couture.
