Montage Monday: New York City

A new feature on Connvoyage, a 3 photo montage highlighting the best memories from my past travels! Enjoy!

Busking in NYC is never too passionate, never too moving and never too boring (well, except maybe that one-man band). This classical Spanish guitar player was amazing! Never before could I believe that a singer on the subway stop could evoke such emotion in me.

Chinatown in NYC is always a special treat for me. Yes, it's smelly and dirty but there's so much life and activity going on! The food is cheap but out of this world. Chinatown can be an assault to some of your senses, but it certainly doesn't take away from the delights it can also bring to your other ones.

Times Square has a bad reputation. It's hectic and a hassle to get around. The throngs of tourists make it near impossible to take 5 steps without getting bumped into. It's crowded and over-commercialized. Yes, it is all that but what we fail to remember is that Times Square is essentially NYC in condensed form and it can be awe-inspiring. I remember my first time walking through Times Square. I was completely dumbfounded by all the lights, activity and people in the area. It really was amazing. After awhile, Times Square lost its appeal and I avoided it at all costs. However, the few times I did find myself walking through it again, I was reminded of why I love NYC so much. The city itself IS crowded and hectic, but isn't that part of why we love NYC?

  1. Hi, I just found your site via other travel blogs, and I think it's great! I'm looking forward to reading all about your volunteer experiences in your archives as well as your other adventures. I'm actually looking to volunteer at the Elephant Nature Park within the next year or two, so I'm especially looking forward to hearing about your experience there whenever you get to it!

  2. Hiya! Thanks so much for the love! I'm so excited about volunteering at the Elephant Nature Park and can't wait for it! Will definitely post blogs and pics from it!
