New York, New York!

A few days in the city that never sleeps is a great way to avoid Australian winter! Journe Australia co-Founder, Liz Henderson, spent three days meeting with potential partners in New York to help drive Journe's expansion into the US market. Wandering the streets of Soho, it became apparent that there is a niche for a high-end luxury sustainable swimwear brand in NYC. Journe Australia intends to fill that! One highlight of the trip was hanging out in 'The Wing', an uber cool co-working space for female entrepreneurs. Equipped with showers, beauty room, café, work space and board room, it is the perfect girls HQ. A 'throne away from home' as they say. Take a look at www.the-wing.com.
Despite its size, NYC is easy to navigate. The preponderance of city bike stands where you can pick up and drop off a bicycle make cycling a viable option for exploring the city. Liz cycled from 9th and 14th St along the river to 77th St. It was dedicated bike path the entire journey, and a fun way to explore different neighbourhoods.
