Hi everyone! Help me to visit New York! :)
Let me introduce myself. My name is Georg, and I'm 20 years old student on Faculty of Mehanical engineering in Bosnia and Herzegovina. I'm here to try raise money so I can visit one and only New York City!
It's mine favorite place in the world! :) I often caught myself on Google Street View walking around Manhattan for a hours, even maybe I have other things to do. I just let my self into it! I'm having kind of obsession about it ever since I realized how AMAZING it is few years ago.
What amazes me about it is culture, arts and all sorts of diversity in the city! And I love the creative energy and sense of freedom! I love that old art deco style combined with new, modern and tallest buildings in the world... And there is million of other reasons!
That butterflies-in-the-stomach feeling when you just think about it, street non-annoying noise, skyline from ESB or Brookyln, street food, NY high line walk, Central Park in the fall, East Village stores and coffee shops, Greenwich smooth jazz clubs and all little side stores...Oh gosh, just thinking about it makes me smile! :) Headphones, music I like + NY = I can die happy :)
I'm doing my best to get there but it's just not happening. I'm guitar player and here and there I get some money for small gigs but thats not enough for anything even I'm saving that money. Economy situation in Bosnia is realy poor and everyone is living tough. This is my only wish, and I hope that this is the way to make it true.
I know there is lot of other problems and people in the world who need to be solved or need help but this is most immportant thing for me, cause New York is mine obsession, and I jost got to do it!
I even have mine blog about NYC where I put pictures I found all around web so you can check it out :)
I know 3000$ is lot of money but this is why I need it for:
- USA visa (210$)
- Cheapest flight (cca 830$)
- Cheapest place I could find to stay (48$ a night => 10 nights 480$)
- 7 Day New York Pass (Includes tickets for 70+ attractions in NYC including biggest ones like Empire State Building, Top Of the Rock, Statue of Liberty, Moma etc - 210$)
- Food for 10 days (cca 250$)
- Favorite part: visiting small coffee shops, jazz clubs and rooftops coffes (cca 250$)
- To buy some souvenirs (cca 70$)
- Metro card (30$)
- Enjoy small things (visiting few famous NYC bakery, Central Park bike ride, China town tour etc = cca 300$)
- Just in case money (300$)
Total: cca 2930$
There is no really deadline for this cause I would love to go there anytime I collect money. So thank you all from the bottom of my heart for helping me in competing my biggest dream! If there is anything you wanna ask me or tell me this is my e-mail adress so feel free to do it: [email protected].
Greetings, Georg. :)
