In 2013, 2 girls pack their lives in a suitcase, left everything they knew and bought a 1 way ticket to New York. With no plans and barely sufficient funds, we only had 1 goal in mind – to live like a local New Yorker.
We finally landed in JFK, and head to the apartment of the only person we knew in New York – Anna. This is it, we were in New York, ready to burry our faces in bowls of noodles at the infamous David Chang’s noodle bar. We were so hungry to dive ourselves in the diverse array of food, fashion and culture.
New York was so vibrant, so full of life, so opposite of where we came from. We arrived at Anna’s cozy apartment, and was welcomed with a plate of polish rosół! So much for living the #AmericanDream.
