For 20 years, Samantha Brown has traversed continents, experienced culture, and tasted adventure applying her…
I know you’re wondering: What does a day in the life of Samantha Brown look like?
I love to travel, but there really is no place like home.
I’ve called New York my hometown for nearly 25 years, and it just never gets old. I know some people think it’s crazy to live in a city so big, but once you get settled in a neighborhood, everything does end up feeling much more like a small town than you’d expect.From my local coffee shop (hello, Cafe Martin… home to life-changing cappuccinos served with a bit of snark), to visiting my local post office and favorite vintage store, there’s just something about being in your own neighborhood that’s so refreshing. And as an added NYC perk: there’s so many great businesses all within walking distance of our house. I barely ever need to drive, which I’m thankful for. Living in the Big Apple really is great exercise.
I love being a regular at these spots, especially since it allows me to get away with a few shenanigans, like the one I pulled at (the now sadly defunct) Trois Pommes Bakery. I promise I went back and paid… eventually.
