DORA THE EXPLORER | THE MARC B BACKPACK OF MY DREAMS
Happy August guys and gals! Can you believe how fast the year is going? I swear I’ve blinked and 8 months have passed. Although it seems as though Summer is coming to an end, even though it’s practically only just started, my Summer holiday hasn’t even happened yet and today marks exactly 1 month until the day I’m going to be jetting off to the big apple to truly indulge myself with Mac and Cheese and Sephora.
With my travels now occupying 90% of my brain 24/7, I’ve been mentally planning what I’m going to bring with me. A trip to New York is going to involve a lot of walking, picture taking and long days out, I’m a girl who likes to carry everything but the kitchen sink, therefore, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect bag to be my sidekick during the trip. So, when Marc B got in touch and wanted to send me a backpack, It was as though the heavens opened and answered by prayers (Can you tell I’m dramatic?)
“NEW YORK IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA!”
To me, New York is the dream. I visited for the first time around 3 years ago and I’ve been dreaming of going back ever since. There’s just something about that city that I can’t physically or mentally get enough of. Although I love an adventure, traveling can be quite the mental mission. I’m a very nervous flyer, whoever I’m sat next to get their hand squeezed to death during take-off, landing or any in-flight turbulence – Sorry not sorry!
Although I’ve never actually re-visited somewhere abroad before, simply because I want to see as much as the world as I possibly can, however, New York is like an entire world in itself. There’s so much to see and do, I don’t think I could ever get bored of such a vibrant city. At this point, with it being exactly a month away, we’re beginning to plan our days, Monica Geller style – I’m making a time table and it’s going to be super organised, okay? One of my biggest regrets from last time I visited New York was that I didn’t take enough pictures (or eat enough Mac and Cheese, but that’s another story!) This year, I’m planning on taking every camera I own and now that I have this backpack from Marc B, I actually have the space to! So I’m blogging it, vlogging it and getting polaroid snaps 24/7 – So expect a whole bunch of New York related content, this trip is going unnoticed!
