18 year old Tiffany had just graduated high school. In just a couple of months she would be leaving to go to college in England. All of her friends were going to different schools in the United States but because she had dual citizenship she decided to leave the country for university. Before she said her goodbyes at the end of the summer Tiffany and her best friend Bianca decided to take a trip to New York City.
To start planning the trip, they made a Pinterest board of everything they’d need and things they would do during their time in the city.
When her sister found out her was going to New York City she decided to make her a guide of all the places to visit because New York City was where she spent her summers while in college.
Knowing that her little sister was planning the entire trip by herself she also made her a tutorial on how to book a hotel near the empire state building so she would do it the right way and not mess up one of the most important parts of planning a trip!
At 5:15 on a Monday morning, the girls boarded a Greyhound bus and started their adventure to the Big Apple. A four hour bus ride gets pretty boring, there’s only so many times you can scroll through your Instagram or play Candy Crush. Two hours into the ride Tiffany was so bored she decided to just stare at the billboards when one in particular caught her eye.
Being that she was a very proud feminist, this billboard made her so happy that afterword she decided to go to sleep because no other billboard or roadside sign could make her smile like that one did.
The girls hopped off the bus at Grand Central Station and the first thing on their mind was to get food. Not wanting to waste any time they decided to just go into a convenience store and grab some snacks. In this store was an array of cereal which is what Bianca decided she wanted to get as her snack. She browsed the rows and rows of cereal but one stood out to her because she’s never seen anything like it. It was a parody of a music video and she thought it was so funny so of course she had to snap a picture of it!
This was the point at which the trip really started for them. Tiff and Bianca went shopping, sightseeing and even got a cool time lapse of the Empire State Building!
They had so much fun that at the end of the last day Tiffany decided to make a podcast to post online telling everyone about everything her trip!
