A Road Trip to Upstate New York and Princeton University

Over the Memorial weekend bank holiday, I took the Friday as a holiday from work, giving myself a four-day weekend. It was my first day off since I went to Nashville in February. Due to the coronavirus and working from home situation, it’s not really the best time to be…

#FridayFive: Five Things to Know About Living in New York

I’ve been meaning to write a post about the things that I’ve come to realize since moving to New York. It was a huge culture shock for sure, having never actually been to visit the city prior to my moving day. New York is very, very wonderful, but it’s also…

#FridayFive: Five Broadway Shows to See

I always meant to write a post about the shows I saw on the West End in London during my placement year as I think I racked up a total of 10 different shows in the space of 12 months. I love the theater and thankfully I’ve been able to…

48 hours in Nashville, Tennessee

Yeehaw and a Hawyee to all y’all. I can now confirm that I want to pack up my bags and move to Nashville, Tennessee. I had written in a post a long while ago that Nashville was on my list of places that I want to move to in the…

A Weekend in Washington D.C.

Two weekends ago I took a trip to the capital of the United States to visit Donald Trump Washington D.C. Another state ticked off my list (we’ll not get technical about this because apparently Washington D.C. isn’t actually in a state of America), I’ve now visited Virginia on top of the other…

A Weekend in Boston, Massachusetts

In between Christmas and New Year’s, I spent a weekend in Boston, Massachusetts. Wanting to tick off another state before the end of 2019 and of course, see another city that I’ve always wanted to see, I chose to hop on a four hour bus to the very Irish-American city…

#FridayFive: Five Things to do in New York at Christmas

Christmas in New York is something that almost everyone has on their bucket lists. It is truly a magical place to be at this time of year and ever since I was younger, I’ve always wanted to experience New York at Christmas and to live it just like Kevin McCallister…

Thanksgiving in The Hamptons

Last weekend was the biggest holiday in the American calendar. Not something that we celebrate back in Ireland or the UK, but they definitely take Thanksgiving very seriously here. Since a lot of the interns get a few days off around the holiday, we thought we would take advantage of…

Seven Hours in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Two weekends ago, myself and ten others took the Greyhound Bus from New York City to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. If you’ve read any of my previous blog posts, you’ll know that I want to see as many cities and states as possible while I’m spending a year in New York and…

How and Why I Moved to New York

Shock, horror, I moved to New York a few weeks ago. Not that I’ve mentioned it already, or put it in all of my social media bios, or posted Instagram stories every day or already blogged about it ten times, but yes, I moved to New York one month ago.…
