About me

67572_10152142970545256_5426260_nHi, I’m Kristal. If Carrie Bradshaw was introducing me into her storyline she would write “30, single, just recently travelled to and fell in love with New York”.

In fact, it was only two months ago. But my love affair with the Big Apple started long before that, through Sex and the City, the show that featured the city as a main character. Some said New York would fail my expectations, others suspected I would never come home… Unfortunately I had to come home… But not before I fell in love with the vibe, energy and eccentricity of the amazing city where you could be whoever you wanted to be, and most importantly you could just be yourself. Now my goal, two months out from finishing my Double Masters, is to make my way back there.

What else do I love you ask? I love travel in general, exploring new places, meeting new people, constantly learning, discovering new food (though I love a good taco or burrito any day), and generally living it up throughout life. I like to colour outside of the lines, laugh whenever possible and smile at the opportunities I have been given.

So here, in my blog, I will share all things New York – from the experiences I recently had to my favourite New York movie and TV show scenes to my amazing journey of getting to the city of my dreams.

“Eventually all the pieces fall into place… until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moment, and know that everything happens for a reason.” – Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City
