I am and always will be a city girl (NYC to be exact!) I grew up being surrounded by masses of people, a cacophony of street noises, and a hustle and bustle that always kept me moving. I am living in my third major city now (NYC, London, sorta Paris, and now Singapore) and really love the characteristics of each place. What I love about most of those cities (especially evident in NYC) is the energy of the people and almost the place itself. It can be a dark and gritty place, but still remain beautiful. There can be a buzz of activity and excitement that differs by neighborhood – just compare the Lower East Side to Midtown! I think that this type of vibe rubs off on me as well and makes me want to do and see everything!
Well I am now off to do and see something a bit tamer in Kerala this week. I am on a houseboat trip today exploring the backwaters of this mellow place. While I do love these relaxing breaks, I am sure I will also be itching to get back to city life soon.
What is your favorite city?
Have a lovely week!
