The Adventure Issue

October 9, 2014


In the four months I spent studying abroad in Florence, I visited 20 cities in eight countries. In the three years I’ve lived in New York City, I’ve barely set aside time to leave Manhattan.

It is not unusual for students to forget that there is a whole world beyond the urban environment we call home, despite the surrounding sights and experiences. After all, whether it is South American cuisine delivered to your door at 2 a.m. or the opportunity to sit in on a live taping of your favorite TV show, New York offers everything you could ever think to ask for.

At this point in the semester, you deserve a break from Bobst Library and probably want some distance from the frenzy

that awaits you every time you step outside. A weekend getaway might be just what you need to unwind from your hectic schedule and clear your head.

I curated this special issue of the Washington Square News to encourage you to alter your course — to set aside time to explore unknown territories and experience new environments.

Now is the perfect time to take advantage of the natural wonders at your fingertips, before the snow and ice make it hard to leave your cozy apartment. Whether you are seeking a wilderness adventure or just want a breath of fresh air, this issue is designed to make the idea of leaving the city a little less intimidating.
