In a few weeks I’m about to take a trip to one of the greatest metropolises on earth - New York City. I’ve been an avid fan of everything American for as long as I can remember, which means controlling my excitement for this is almost too much to bear at times.

Having never been before, I’ve always been the envious one when involved in discussions about the place and being told of all the bars, nightlife and incredible food.

I find that taking a short break every few months really benefits your work life too. Having the chance to take a step back and put everything on pause for few days allows you to return to work refreshed, full of energy and ever keen for the next adventure.
