I have always loved traveling, leaving my life behind, and adopting a new persona. I am euphoric when I venture to a place that I no longer feel trapped in or restricted by the judgment and expectations of those I know. Immersing myself in a new world is simply magical. When it is over, I am often heartbroken. Yet I return to my life as if nothing ever happened.
This summer I embarked on one of the most magical voyages I could have imagined. I visited the city of my soul for the first time: New York. These are some photos that document my feelings as I traveled across the East Coast and yearned to wander forever.
