I can’t even begin to describe how excited I am! Right now, my love and I are on our way to NYC! It’s my 4th or 5th trip to the city that never sleeps, but it’s the first time I’ve stayed for longer than 2 days – that’s right, we’re living in the Big Apple (in Alphabet City!) all week long! And Lina’s brother and cousin are meeting us there from Sweden – crazy awesome. And I’m going to have an Instagram/blogging buddy meetup – I’m meeting German-American Abroad! And I have fika plans for drinking coffee all over the city. But, one of the biggest parts of the week is that my love turns 30 tomorrow, so we’re celebrating her by going to a Broadway play and then out for drinks. For real. So exciting.

The rest of our time in NYC, will be all about exploring, being, photographing, eating, and getting inspired. My plan is to soak up the vibes of the bohemian atmosphere of the city, while taking in a few of the touristy sites. We’ve done most everything already that you “should” do when you visit NY, so this time were just gonna let the moments come as they wish. It’s all about feeling and finding the heartbeat of different places in the city. Does it get any better than that?

I’ll be sure to check in with you every now and then – and share some pictures too! Feel free to follow me on Instagram (@_belovelive_) to keep up with our big adventure. In the meantime, some words from one of my favorite travel writers – who also lived in and loved NYC:


Wishing you days filled with adventure… wherever you are! xx
