MOVING TO NEW YORK?

June 19, 2016

rebecca laureyrebecca laureyrebecca laureyrebecca laureyrebecca laureyOh New York… Stealing my heart every single time, all over again. Although the city is starting to feel like home, I always get this rush of excitement in my body when I’m walking around there. It’s just a special place. And I’ve been spending a lot of time out there the past year. It’s just been a little over a year that Ralph and I decided to just “try” New York out for a bit longer, starting with a month. To see if we could make it work, starting to setΒ up a professional network and hang out with our friends. Since we decided to take that risk (of spending a lot of money without a return – apart from a great time), I’ve been to New York Β six times, spent a total of just over 4 months in the city. And then I’m not even counting my time in Key West or on the West Coast. Is it too obvious? I really LOVE New York and with the amount of new friends I gained over the past year, the opportunities I get while out there, I really feel like it would make sense to officially start thinking of that making the move. A bunch of people already think I live there (which officially isn’t true since I don’t have an apartment in the city, and I do in Amsterdam), so… What do you guys reckon? Do or don’t?

  • Do, no question about it! And if you have a tiny room under the stairs a la Harry Potter, I’d be happy to live there with you!
    In all seriousness though, you only live once so yes, do it!

    • Hahaha, I’ll let you know! I don’t think so though as we probably have to downsize quite a lot, so expensive to live in NYC!

  • DO IT

    • I NEED YOU CLOSE!! Without sounding to creepy but I sort of mean it πŸ™‚ <3 <3 <3

  • Honestly, DO IT. Do not question it. NEW YORK is the dopest place and Zanita is there right? πŸ˜‰

  • DO!! This city makes you so happy and from what I can see, you make everything work out just fine:)!!! And if you can do this together with you hubby, it will be even greater! We just moved to San Francisco, and we love it! The people and the vibes in the USA are just amazing! Big Xx and enjoy The Hamptons! http://bagatyou.com

    • YES! Zo fijn dat je het naar je zin hebt! Hopelijk is mijn visum snel binnen, dan kunnen we serieus beslissingen maken πŸ™‚

  • If you have the possibility to do it, DO IT! I’m moving there for 2 years in January 2017. It is supposed to be ‘about’ two years, but who know’s. I truly understand your love for New York! So again: DO IT!

    • Super leuk! Wat ga je daar doen? Heb je je visum al binnen? Daar moet ik nu eerst op wachten πŸ™‚ Spannend! xx

      • Mijn vriend heeft een digital creative agency in Rotterdam en in Europese markt zitten ze nu wel op hun max, dus ze gaan daar ook openen. In Williamsburg, vlakbij We Work, misschien ken je dat daar wel. Ik ga mee om Paul natuurlijk te moral supporten, maar ook om m’n eigen business verder uit te breiden. En onze pup gaat ook mee. Veel zin in!! Visum van Paul is al binnen, maar nu moet ik nog een legale manier vinden om daar te gaan verblijven. Huwelijk schijnt wel handig te zijn πŸ˜‰ maar we hebben nog even om het uit te zoeken! πŸ˜‰ xx

        • Ja trouwen is niet onhandig in deze situatie! Fijn dat je meegaat! Ralph en ik gaan allebei voor onze eigen O1 dus daar gaat lekker veel tijd in zitten. Maar is het vast waard! Als je getrouwd bent kun je met hem mee maar mag je officieel niet werken dus dat is ook niet ideaal, maar je komt er vast uit! Heel veel succes! xx
