New York City

META InfluencerMy oldest children are in their pre-teen years. Last Christmas, we tried something new. My daughter had been constantly on us for a trip to NYC. I travel for work often to the City and she’s always wanting to tag along. Last Christmas, she opened a ticket to NYC. I didn’t give her the date (although you could do that too) but more the promise that we will plan a trip together and the visit.  The gift of travel and more experiential gifts area becoming more popular with our kids. They have come to the understanding that these trips do cost money and they have started to choose the experience over the toy. I’m loving that they are making that choice themselves too!

Trough Her Eyes | Travelogue Day 1- New York City

My patents brought me to New York City when I was 16. It never left my soul. I love the hustle of the people. The bright lights energized me as I walked through the streets. There is just something about New York City. Mia received a plane ticket to NYC last Christmas. It was her big gift. We finally booked the trip and New York City through her eyes has been magical and we still have two more days to explore.

We got in last night…late. Checked in to the hotel and walked out. We were about 10 blocks north of Time Square but you would have thought we were right around the corner.

I have traveled with Mia solo a few times before and it probably tops my list of favorite things to do.
