I just got back from vacation in New York City, and had such a fun time. My first time to visit the city was in February 2013, and my first thoughts were, “It’s exactly how it looks in the movies!” Growing up in the South, the idea of ever having a White Christmas was so fantastic, and I so looked forward to the day when I’d get to actually visit NYC. Winter in the city is so beautiful with the cold and snow and all the bright lights, but Summer is great too. Here are my top 5 favorites from my recent trip!
My first vacation to Montreal was in November 2012, and I have been in love ever since! Montreal is a city in the province of Quebec, in Canada. We just returned from our fourth trip to Montreal, and had a blast. Montreal is special to me because it’s the first vacation my boyfriend and I took together. Cheesy I know! Here is a list of my top 5 places to go in the city.
