A few weekends ago, I traveled to NYC for some sibling bonding, but not just any old bonding. Since I have visited a number of times over the last few years (you can read more about that here), I challenged my travel planning skills to come up with something different. When I think about my favorite travel activities, two things come to mind, walking and eating. We could have paid to hop on a food walking tour (this one is awesome), but why not create our own?
So I put Jesse to task finding somewhat healthy options, and he delivered with an impressive spreadsheet. The best part about creating our own adventure was the inherent flexibility. While we had a rough idea for the day, we truly let our feet and stomachs guide us. Planned coffee shop closed? No problem, the one down the street smells great too. Feet need an extra break? That bench looks ideal. Not quite ready for dessert yet? Take an extra stroll around the block. I filmed our day, which turned out to be one of the best NYC experiences yet. I can't wait to do this again, enjoy!
