Earlier this month before a girl named Sandy came along, I had an opportunity to head to New York as part of a press junket and seeing that I’ve never travelled to NY before, I decided to extend my stay for an extra ten days to do some extra work, catch up with some friends and explore as much of the city as I possibly could. With my internal dialogue screaming “#YOLO!!”, I embarked on my first trip to The States with two main objectives; squeeze as many adventures into my trip as possible and take photos of everything with my new Canon that I just started using. With the help of Eastpak, I’ll be sharing some of the photos I’ve brought back from New York. When was the last time you did something for the first time?
So this first post will be of photos I took in the first 24 hours I arrived in New York, I was under prepared for this trip to say the least so I knew I had to just throw myself into the deep end and roll with the punches.
I literally had no plans for the day so I set out for an adventure into SoHo to burn off some of my spending money. Thanks to the crappy Apple Maps I was left confusingly walking around the same three blocks for a while before some friendly locals gave me some directions to get to Marcy to catch the J-Train into Manhattan. Here are the photos from my first day in NY….
Eastpak began making backpacks way back in 1952 for the Pentagon.
