Hi! I'm Gina.

About Gina Aylward and her New York travel blog, This Side of the Atlantic.


Welcome to my little corner of the internet.

I moved to New York City earlier this year, and I created this blog to share the experience of discovering New York with you! It's such a big city with so many places to see, and I need a space to document it all.

I moved here from Shanghai, China, where I was a high school English teacher. I loved it there, and was sad to leave! However, I also want to share that experience and what I loved about China. It's a very unique place with a lot to offer, although it's a little rough around the edges!

Over the past few years, I've travelled a lot. It was one of the perks of being a teacher! I'll be documenting my travels here, and hopefully you can use it to make your own itinerary when you visit a new place.

I hope you enjoy my blog, and feel free to contact me! I would love to hear from you :)
