New York, United States of America - Polarsteps

After a good night sleep to recuperate from the time different, I head up to Central Park. It has always been a dream of mine to walk aimlessly throughout this gigantic park. The north and south part of Central Park are widely different. The North Woods, the Great Hill and the North Meadows are less touched by human presence. Nature is in control of this part. Once I reach the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir, I feel like the nature surrounding me is more controlled/tamed. You can find tennis courts, baseball courts and many running paths. ⚠️during weekend I felt like half of the population was either running or walking their dogs 🐶 lots of opportunities to meet a furry friend ☺️ I continue my journey towards 5th avenue. An emblematic avenue where you can find anything your heart desires. From luxurious jewelry shops to famous brands you can definitely shop till you drop😜 I want to head up to the Rockefeller center, but before i could do that I discover St Patrick’s Cathedral. Founded by the contribution of citizens, the first stone was laid in 1858 and its doors opened in 1879. It is now in its last stage of renovation. What a unexpected treat 🤩 I continue my journey back towards the west coast of Central Park to reach the museum of Natural History. But first i want to try the local fold - the New York hot dog 🤗(not the best i have had but i will be on the lookout for the best hot dog stand of the city!) I rush towards the museum to be able to enter -last entrance at 4PM. Between the pre-historical creatures and the animals of the world this museum is gigantic! By 5:30PM I get kicked out of the museum without having the chance to finish it. I meet up a friend for a quick drink in a speakeasy bar in Chelsea and head back to the hostel to eat and sleep (more like crashed in bed 😂) What a magical first day 🤩
