My Mega Moment - A trip to NYC

When I was planning what to do for my 21st birthday I knew it had to be special. Although my previous 'milestone' birthdays have been good, I'd never done anything out of the ordinary. One of my close friends also turned 21 in August so we thought what better than to celebrate together.

New York is somewhere almost everyone hopes to at some point in their life and we were no different. It was on both of our to-visit lists. With my Mum in tow we decided to book up for an adventure to the Big Apple.

We spent four days in the city, staying in a hotel right on Times Square, using our time sightseeing, shopping and generally taking in New York. It is surreal to be in a place that is featured so heavily in films and TV series. It's almost like you've already been there, but you haven't so it is so new and exciting.

We visited the Empire State Building, the top of the Rockerfeller Center and went on a trip down the Hudson River seeing Lady Liberty on our travels. We did lots of shopping in Times Square, Soho and the famous department stores such as Macy's. We walked out little feet off around the city and in Central Park, as well as taking the sightseeing tour bus to places further afield such as the Natural History Museum, the New York Public Library and Grand Central Station.

It was such an amazing trip which definitely represented a Mega Moment for me. I'm really keen to get back so I can only hope that this was not my only visit to one of the most iconic cities in the World.

Megabus is hosting a competition asking people to enter their Mega Moment via social media. The Mega Moment you enter would ideally be somewhere you've visited (not necessarily on a Mega Bus) or something you've done that represented a Mega Moment. No moment is too big or too small to enter. It could be anything from a cinema trip to going on a spectacular mountain hike.

Over the Summer, Megabus will be giving away spectacular prizes. To enter you have to post your Mega Moment on social media using the hashtag #MegaMoments and tagging Megabus in your entry (@megabus_sid on Instagram and Twitter) or upload to the site direct.

For more information visit their Mega Moments site!
