Well we spent 3 days in new york on our honeymoon, but sadly spent the whole time chasing up our luggage which never arrived at the airport. As such we never saw the Statue of Liberty, shopped in Maceys or took a ride on a horse and cart through Central Park. So if I won I would treat my husband to all the things we would have done on our honeymoon!!

Hello there, and thanks to youuuu for this amazing website!! :)

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win this flight to NYC; here is my story: I met this AMAZING girl in NY this summer when I was there for one week last august. I met her by couchsurfing(an awesome way to discover a place, to share culture and to meet amazing people, I recommand to everybody) and after one evening spent together, the energy that we were sharing was just .... Magic!!!! The day after I had to take my bus back to montreal and then to take my flight back to France, there was "something in the air" unquestionably!!!!!!! I left New york with such a powerfull feeling. Surprise, she had booked a flight to go to PAris since June, so before our meeting, to come in october. Without a hesitation, I got my october free so I can spend time with her when she will come!! It was 2 crazy month to wait, but when finally she came it was just extraordinary....our first kiss was one a the train station; I was TOTALLY late just to take my train, for meeting I got the first day she was there, we were running so I can catch my train, the platform was totally empty, everybody were on the train, we stoped to say goodbye... we kissed while the whistle of the inspector was screaming in the hole train station!!! I will remember this moment for ever! We spend one week and half .... just wonderful, hanging out in Paris, discovering secret place of the french capital as American-French lovers, spending time in the french countryside from my childhood....!

The only thing I expect now is to go there, I hope in summer and if I can get this AMAZING offer from you It would be Awesome, so that i can use the money I will save to just enjoy New York city with her and the CRAZY energy we have when we are together.

Five years ago I got really ill for almost a year. After that I had agoraphobia, even going into the garden made me very nervous. It was really bad for a few years, but I set myself a goal. I wanted to visit New York and LA and did everything to overcome the fear. If I could visit New York and LA, I could go back to university, that would be easy. And I did, went to New York and LA last march/april. I was so proud of myself. And I'm now back at university getting good grades. I got 30/30 ects for the first semester. If I'd win this trip to New York I'd visit everything again!

I want to get lost, walk down a road that wasn't on the planned path and stumble across something amazing. Take a risk with a restaurant that looks a bit tired and old, but realise its food has heart and a love that no high end 5 star dining experience could master. Immerse myself in a culture and a world different from my own, with its own characters, charms and flaws. I don't want everything to be perfect or cliche, but just to remember and look back on it with a smile and laugh when things didn't go to plan but in turn you become savvy about that town. I want to find the calmness in a city so packed with life and the uncharted areas of a city that have been walked over infinite times. I want to create my own guidebook filled with stories, experiences and memories unique to me.

New York, New York... like Frank Sinatra said, "I want to wake up in that city that never sleeps" I can imagine myshelf listening this music there and visiting all the iconic monuments like the statue of liberty, empire state building, ground zero... But first of all I would sit on the red stairs in Times square, watching the crowd, feeling the energy of the City. Then would be really prepared to live as a true American during some days, visiting all social "guetos", sharing your day... Would eat a typical American hotdog or an hamburger walking at the same time by the streets feeling like a little ant surrounded by skyscrapers or crossing by ferry boat between long Island and Manhattan... after to abate a few kilos nothing better than running in central park to feel healthy. To finalize i would wake up early in a sunday morning to going to the Harlem, watch the typical mass Gospel... Here are some words about what could be my American dream, lived by a young Portuguese

Feel the spirit of the city...

There's no other reason to travel as to feel yourself happy joining the mood of the place around, reaching Empire state of mind... having New York under your skin.

New York the city where dreams are made of...I would lose myself in the crowds in Times Square and find the Naked Cowboy and offer him some British pants! Over the great Brooklyn Bridge I would watch the sunset, By night I will let the lights and skyline consume me… when my feet get tired from walking 5th Avenue, Madison Avenue and Broadway, I would seek refuge in the majestic oasis that is Central Park. And then off I’d go to pay tribute to Frédéric-Auguste Bartholdi for giving the world the Empire State Building.
