    I've been planning this trip since last year and there's a terrorist attack the week before we go? What are the chances....

    What a terrible thing to happen to such a beautiful city. My heart breaks for the friends and families who lost loved ones and for the whole city. Such a stupid senseless act.

    I told husband that if he wanted to cancel our trip or go somewhere else, we can. We thought about it, then decided that we should still go. Those were our plans. This kind of thing can happen anywhere... We live an hour away from NYC. We were even in NYC when one of the terrorist attacks happened earlier this year. There was a shooting outside of our apartment last year, and we don't live in a town where you expect that kind of thing. Our favorite club is in Newark and there have been a few times where we left the club and saw police tape blocking off a nearby street. It really can happen anywhere and we don't want to let it ruin our honeymoon.

    Still, I feel weird celebrating in a city that just experienced such a tragedy.

      @WingedThing Cities and people are resilient. Loving the life you have and going to the city you had planned is a way to not live in the fear that extremists are trying to cultivate. We should not live by their rules and desires due to that is a cold world. Go and enjoy, love on your husband and soak in the experience. It's sad that there are cruel people in the world but that happens on so many levels throughout the world as you noted. Show warm smiles, love and friendliness and that heals people more than fear and closed doors.

      Happy anniversary!

    It has been my dream for the last 3 years. Last year I went to Europe and have been in Poland, Denmark, Italy and Germany and I could have gone to Barcelona but I didn't want to just go there for one week. Originally my plan was to stay in Barcelona for at least for 3 months or even more. I wanna discover this city as a place where I might move to live for a couple of years. So I have decided to go back to Europe this year and finally reach my main destination.
