Want to know a secret?
This is embarrassing. Promise you won’t tell?
Okay. Here it is. My secret shame.
I have never been to New York City.
When I tell people this, they’re often shocked. I’ve been a fair few places. One friend (who, it should be mentioned, has been to New York so many times she’s lost count) put it best when she said, “You’ve been to Serbia, and you’ve never been to New York?”. It’s true. I have not.
Like, right now. I am on a plane, Big Apple-bound, as we speak. Finally I don’t have to feel like some sort of backcountry yokel when the topic of NYC comes up.
A New York virgin no more!
