In mere hours I’ll be hopping a plane and headed to New York City. I’ve never been, though I have been advised in How Not To Be An Annoying Tourist, and am hoping that I can navigate NYC at least close to as well as I managed in London, a city I absolutely loved. For this Southern girl, New York is mostly a construct of film and literature, so I’m trying to keep my mind open so I can experience a new place without expectations. We’re traveling with our two best friends, and a major purpose of the trip is to do my husband’s 30th birthday up right. We don’t really have a concrete plan, but I’m sure we’ll have a great time. Have a great weekend, folks!
