Our whirlwind trip to the city that never sleeps didn’t seep into our souls, change us or leave a footprint on our hearts.
The truth is I was underwhelmed by New York City. I expected greatness, magic, to be mesmerised (I don’t know perhaps I thought celebrities would be pole vaulting down Madison Avenue). But ultimately I thought New York would fundamentally alter my views on city life and leave me hungry to return.
Instead, it was everything you see on television screens and nothing more.
