The Walking City…

Hola corazones!

Yeah it’s not the walking dead, actually I was walking very alive lol… Sometimes I have a tendency to walk like a zombie immerse in my own thoughts, in my own world but most of the time I try to look around, and it’s a nice, refreshing and inspiring experience…

Since I promised to show you my New York, I will take you with me in my walking around this crazy and beautiful city!

I was running an errand in the famous Upper East Side, so I decided to walk while heading back home… I thought taking the subway was the fastest way… lazy me… But then I said, come on you lazy  woman, move those feet and walk some blocks, enjoy, recharge, burn some calories, and avoid transfer from train to train in the process hehe.

 It was a nice fall day, the weather was just right, cold but just enough to feel a refreshing air, it was kind of a way to clean my mind, I let the win blow away all the bad thoughts, and while walking the coldness felt like a perfect way to embrace a new season!

I found this tiny reminder, Christmas is around the corner yey!! This mini trees, considering that my place is like a mine box,  one of this green beauties would be more than prefect lol… yeah the perks of living in the city. ;)

While out of the city most houses are decorated for every holiday, unfortunately that is not the case in the city, maybe because of buildings, crazy or weird neighbors or whatever reasons, so it’s funny and nice to see a building fully embracing the season and holidays decor! Boo!!

Haha did you got scare??…  I love tree line houses neighborhoods, they all have the same colors, brownish, brick color, but once in a while something will stand out, a big and beautiful red door!!  I loved it, the building was a beauty too.

Talking about statements, my walk took me to one of the city statements, Central Park, I didn’t go inside, I walked along side of it.

In a walking city, dogs need their walk too, I don’t think I can be a dog walker, I would feel that one of the dogs would go wild on me lol. These ones were well-behaved I have to say.

You can avoid to stop in the middle and just appreciate and enjoy the nature, the coldness, the new season, and just feel the beauty of life!

But I joined the crow outside and rested a little bit, we enjoyed some nice street music, this guys were awesome, the music was the type I like, oldies but goodies and everyone was enjoying the free show.

Hungry much??… pick a card and have a hot dog or an exotic dish, yeah on the streets!! lol

My walk was over for the day, I took the bus back home, and I felt renewed, blessed and somehow like I had just cleaned my mind, ready to keep going!

And look what I found around my neighborhood, a lonely but smiley carved pumpkin hehe…  On a good news it has company now… I will show you in my next post :)

Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoy my walking day, it was a nice way to recharge energy and get inspire in the process… This city is full of life and I always say, the best way to see it is getting out of the bus, train or car and just walk around, even the same place won’t feel the same way twice!

I leave you with a little taste of what I listened to during my musical break!

Feel free to leave any comment! Have a great and very inspirational week!!
