Frankly, y’all, I’m a little confused by this burgeoning side career, too. But exciting things have transpired, and I kinda want to share!
A few months ago, I started moonlighting as an itinerary writer at Unanchor.com, concocting ridiculously detailed itineraries for similarly OCD travelers visiting New York City.
I really love writing for the website mostly because I love the idea of helping travelers escape tour groups. I’m convinced that I’m allergic to tour groups… I get antsy & impatient and always feel like I’m missing out on the real essence of a place.
So I wrote up a 2-Day First-Timers Guide to Manhattan and a Lower East Side Neighborhood Tour, and thought I’d mention them in case you’re headed to NYC in the near future! I’m thinking of writing a “Holiday Season in New York City,” too… perhaps something about maintaining your jolly amidst the masses that flock to Manhattan in December… :)
Because I’ve already launched into shameless, shameless self-promotion, I’m just gonna come out and announce that the Unanchor website recently did a feature article on me, too! Woo hoo and happy dance!
So check it out if you like… or don’t, and we’ll pretend this whole awkward encounter never happened. ;)
