After seven months of living in the remote rainforest of Costa Rica, I was in need of a city escape.
Don’t get me wrong – I’m really enjoying the opportunity to live in Central America, learn about a new culture and use my Spanish.
Lucky for me, just when I felt I needed a break from the damp jungle, I had planned to go back to the states for my sister’s graduation from the University of Maryland.
Even luckier for me, two of my favorite travel buddies and I were able to arrange a Girlfriend Getaway to New York City that coincided with my visit home.
I also made some pretty amazing friends while living in Madrid, and am fortunate to say that, though we may be spread across the globe, we are still good friends today.
Our Girlfriend Getaway to New York City was crashed part of the time by a man – Paul, another former English teacher in Spain. We let him join us because, if we were to label ourselves as characters from Sex and the City he would easily be Miranda due to his fashion sense.
Check back on Something In Her Ramblings this Wednesday for the first post in this series, or sign up for my email list to get posts sent directly to your inbox. I spent the year living in Spain and got to travel my brains out, visiting 25 countries and reaching many of my travel wish list goals such as climbing the Eiffel Tower, touching the African continent for the first time and exploring the scenic fjords of Norway.


We met at a lunch during our teaching orientation and bonded over a ridiculous plate of asparagus I was served in lieu of pork. We spent many hours exploring cafes in the city and working on our prospective blogs and writing assignments. I'm Lauren Salisbury, a Los Angeles based travel blogger who has ventured to 43 countries and counting. But one of the lessons this country has taught me is that I belong in a city, where I’m in the center of action and surrounded by people, buildings and businesses to stimulate my senses. To the chagrin of Emily (make that everyone), she coined the term cashy-cash during one of our many how can I afford to live in Madrid, travel and eat at the same time conversations. Tragically, I do not have a picture of it, but I can promise it rivaled this overall and coat ensemble that Miranda failed to rock in season two.
He’s actually like Miranda mostly because he is an excellent listener and has a huge heart. Having lived abroad in Australia, Spain and the Costa Rican rainforest, Something In Her Ramblings is my space to share stories, resources and travel tips with fellow women solo travelers.
I also benefit from living within walking distance to Dunkin’ Donuts (or anywhere that sells iced coffee for that matter).


She also always manages to find a way to convince whatever bar we are out at to blast Timber by Ke$ha so we can dance.
Despite our constant budgeting in Spain, during one of our writing sessions she somehow managed to rack up a 16 euro bill on coffee, orange juice and croissants. Experience this fabulous cities with my friends, I fell deeply in love with the illustrious magic and energy of America’s most populous city.
Next year he is going to medical school and is going to become one of the best pediatricians ever. I’m still smitten, and it brings me joy to write and reflect on my trip as the rain pours down in Central Costa Rica.
