Since no vampires are whisking us away on around-the-world trips, we’re introducing a new weekly feature to help you while away the long Vampire Diaries hiatus: Where in the World Are Rebekah and Matt? Each week, we’ll pick a locale we think the OV is dying to drag her favorite human to and imagine what those two crazy kids are getting up to. Enjoy!

The first stop on Rebekah and Matt’s non-stop trip around the world of fun has to be New York City, right? She had so much fun Thelma & Louise-ing it up with Elena, and Bex is bound to want to bring a bit of hedonism into Matt’s life. While she’ll have to restrain her urge to feed in public (the busboy probably frowns on that kind of thing), there’s still plenty of fun to be had.

They can do some touristy stuff to cross the Empire State Building off Matt’s bucket list. But we can also see them strolling through Central Park while the quarterback scrapes enough pocket change together to buy Rebekah an Italian ice.

At night, Bex will compel them a table at Per Se before they head to the Knitting Factory to take in a show. Even though Matt doesn’t typically like that sort of stuff, he’ll let his new vampire friend take him to a Broadway show one night, too.

After that, they’ll pick up some “I <3 NY” shirts because they have to, and then Rebekah will take him for some real shopping at Barney’s, because you know t-shirts and flannels aren’t going to cut it on this trip.
