As many of you know, I spend a good amount of time on the road for Saffire. In previous episodes of Beyond the Lanyard, I’ve talked about the fun things I do while I’m at a conference outside of the tradeshow floor. However, this time, I wanted to give you a little look inside a personal trip I took—to New York City! (See? I DO go places other than trade shows!)
There is SO much to love about the Big Apple. I’ve been before, but this time I had a special mission—to see Derek Jeter bat one more time for the New York Yankees. I’ve been a Jeter fan practically my whole life, so I couldn’t help but make the trip. It was totally worth it! Jeter went 2 for 4 and the crowd went wild every time he came up to bat.
I saw a few other sights while in NYC, including the view from the top of the Empire State Building and some really incredible pieces at the Museum of Modern Art. It’s so amazing to me that you can see such masterpieces right here in the USA! Of course, one of my favorites was Vincent Van Gough’s famous “Starry Night” pictured here, but I saw all kinds of pieces by Picasso, Monet, Matisse and Warhol just to name a few.
I was only in New York for a little over 48 hours (hey, the Saffire trips were calling my name!) but I’m so grateful for the time I spent there and I can’t wait to go back again soon!
