New York…what a city.

I took hundreds of photos. It’s not possible to put them all in one post. Every week I’ll be sharing little by little and in not particular order. 

Anyways, here are a few of my thoughts.

New York is this crazy humongous city full of people and food spots. It has cool coffee shops, diversity and fashion in every voter. Along with historical streets, there’s meaningful places and beautiful architecture. Inspiration thrives in the big apple as its surrounded by creativity and special humans.

Since I moved to the United States, I’ve always wanted to go to New York. Who doesn’t right? You hear about so many wonderful things regarding that city. However, it wasn’t on my plans to go until I needed to get a new passport and the consulate was in New York. What perfect excuse!

Basically, I only had a week to plan the trip. Everything was last-minute. We almost didn’t have a place to sleep. We bought the flight tickets 5 days prior to the trip and we didn’t know where things where; the only thing I had was a list of the places I would visit, which I made at the beginning of the year. Thank God that everything turned out GREAT!

The first few days my heart had mixed feelings. I was in shocked; I felt weird. This city was more or less than what I expected. I know I can sound a bit like a drama queen or that I’m exaggerating but that’s how I felt and still feel. I’ve always had a desire to more to New York at some point go my life so I needed to evaluate my chances.

I stayed at Columbia college residence thanks to two special and talented girls (@Ellabric & @MVcaldera) that offered their apartment to us. It was cozy, well located and the view was just breath-taking.

Our weekly agenda was completely booked by there was so many things to do that we were kind of undecided. These are the places we went:

What’s cool is that everywhere you go there’s a photo opportunity. There are so many beautiful places that offer healthy eating choices and many areas to explore. I know that eve if you live there, you must be constantly discovering new places.

Nothing is perfect. This city has its pro and cons. Besides the bad stuff found in a metropolitan are, it’s a wonderful city as the song says. It’s pretty awesome to be surrounded by so many people, inspiring!

Also, I love that in the middle of concrete and tall buildings, there’s nature or cool places like the High Line and Central Park full of plants.

Really hope to be there soon.

Hello folks! 

Hope everyone is doing super-duper (awkward, yes. I don't care) good.

If you follow me on Instagram (@Karolayncorzo) you know I was in a famous city that's called a fruit - getting a new passport.

I want to express and share my opinion about NYC, which will be up hopefully this upcoming week.  But while I was there, I stopped by a really nice and cozy coffee shop called Birch. If I'm not mistaken there are three of them

and they're all 
in Manhattan. 

I used to drink coffee since I was eight because in some way it was part of the culture of my home country. It was not trendy at all. It was just a normal habit for us to drink every single morning. We didn't have fancy machines; my mom used to boil the water, put the coffee on the strainer, prepared the milk etc. You know, old school.

Now that I live here in the US, I have never taste anything like it. Never. However, a couple of months ago I stopped drinking coffee because I became lactose intolerant and I'm not willing to drink black coffee. I just can't. To be hones it was hard at the beginning but now I'm completely fine. I don't crave it anymore. The only thing that is affecting me is not being able to buy this cool coffee stuff at Marshalls. Seriously. 

Then came one trip, NYC, with amazing coffee shops everywhere. I got to do it. I don't regret it.

The coffe at Birch was GREAT, very creamy and spumy. It had a good flavor which most coffee I've drunk here don't have at all. The service was gratifying, many polite people and only good vibes. 
I was pretty sad when I finished my latte and my mom who I consider to truly be a coffee fanatic, loved it.  In other  words you should stop by and say Karolayn recommended me, haha.

Anyway, hope you like my little vlog video.

To be clear, I'm not a coffee expert but I know what a high quality coffee is when I taste one. 

Now, let me know in the comments if you're a coffee lover, tea lover or you just prefer something else? (:
