You never really expect these things to happen to you, but when they do, it’s almost unbelievable. I was struck with surprise when I found out that I won a trip to New York City for New York Comedy Festival. 4 days and 3 nights, in the city that never sleeps. I brought my mom, and we left the day after my 18th birthday. We were put up at PUBLIC hotel, which was incredible, and given money for while we were there. We didn’t plan much, mostly because I hate planning for trips and would rather walk around and spontaneously do things, so for the first two days that’s what we did. We walked all over New York, from Chinatown to Manhattan, to the financial district and everywhere in between. At night we went to comedy shows, which my mom wasn’t a huge fan of, but I loved. The second night we decided to go to the broadway show Kinky Boots instead, which was incredible and I highly recommend. On the last night, we saw Vir Das, which was my favorite comedian of the week. Overall, it was a fantastic trip and I’m so glad I got to spend it with my mother, it’s something we’ll never forget. Enjoy the photos, I didn’t take very many!
Lots of love, Leonie
