New York never fails. I feel like I was just there not long ago, and there I was traveling to the capital of the world for the same reason as my last visit – a boy band, Coldplay.

I’ve traveled to NY plenty of times, but it always feels like the first time. This occasion was like the episode of Gossip Girl where Blake and Selena have a photo-shoot around the city. My friend Nadine and I seriously did not stop taking pictures of each other – We were living it and also Pokemon hunting. We even had a few expectators in the subway laughing at us for acting such fools.

Instead of planning my short trip, I wanted to treat it differently this time. I wanted to be a local in NY and just do what New Yorker’s do y’know. Walk… Walk… Walk…and drink coffee.

I don’t know if you know, but New York is one of the cheapest cities to travel to in the world. Starting with the flight. I booked my flight using Skyscanner just a few days before departing and it was less than $200 round trip. If you’re still undecided where to go this summer because of budget, look no further, New York is the place to go when you just want to travel on a budget. New York is an outdoor museum, specially if you’ve never been to it, every corner is filled with surprises.

Let me show and tell, and experience this trip with me through pictures instead:
