My First Cruise to the Bahamas

My First Cruise to the Bahamas

Lost footage from my first cruise to the Bahamas! We’re not traveling right now. And that’s not fun. So let’s go back in time to when we were traveling. This was 12 years ago in 2008 and I completely forgot about these photos. They were on a DVD packed away in a drawer. Panic cleaning is good for something after all. Without further ado, the photos. Boarding There were long lines to wait in. Then it was finally time to…

Quintessential New England Winter Activities

Quintessential New England Winter Activities

Lots of places in the U.S. don’t have four seasons. So they are unable to experience fall and winter. That’s not the case with New England. Ice Skating There’s just something special about the first day the local rink opens. And then it’s that first skate on the fresh, untouched ice. I’m not one for skating on frozen ponds. I stick to indoor rinks. Ice skating is a great winter sport to do with friends or as a family. The…

Navigating the Seoul Subway

Navigating the Seoul Subway

Are you scared of getting lost? In a foreign country? Aren’t we all! I talked about navigating the New York City subway. It’s one of the largest in the world. Now let’s explore the Seoul subway. I’d rate it as a 10/10 when it comes to being easy to navigate. And the cute safety videos (below) are an added bonus. T-Money card You’ve entered a Seoul subway station. Now you need to pay. Vending machines sell T-Money cards. Add money…

Chinatown, Manhattan Tour

Chinatown, Manhattan Tour

I love living near New York City and being able to go to places like Chinatown. You can just hop on the train and feel like you’re in another country. It’s a great experience. Last month when I went to the MET I also spent some time in Chinatown and Little Italy. From 5th Avenue, I crossed over to Lexington Avenue. Then I took the # 6 subway all the way down to the Canal Street stop. Little Italy was…

Georgia Aquarium Tour, Atlanta Georgia

Georgia Aquarium Tour, Atlanta Georgia

I’m not one to frequent aquariums. When I do visit, though, I always enjoy myself. The Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, Georgia was no different. One of the first animals I saw at the aquarium were the Otters. They were so cute. They played with all their toys. Then they even put on a little show for us. Guess who else put on a show for us? The Dolphins! We were able to see a dolphin show with all their jumps…

Brooklyn, New York: Columbia Heights Tour

Brooklyn, New York: Columbia Heights Tour

I visited Brooklyn last month. I was amazed at all the buildings and architecture there. I’ve been to Brooklyn so many times and grew up right outside of New York City. I sort of took it all for granted. I also visited a great Indian restaurant I hadn’t been to in years. There were so many beautiful brownstones. Then there were all the modern buildings. It was such a contrast. The Barclays Center was also in this area. This neighborhood…

Strolling through Atlanta, Georgia

Strolling through Atlanta, Georgia

What comes to your mind when you think of Atlanta, Georgia? Is it the Coca-Cola factory? What about the 1996 Olympics? For me, it’s those things, plus family too. I walked past the Centennial Olympic Park in May. 23 years ago the Games of the XXVI Olympiad took place. We know them as the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. It seemed as if it was yesterday that my grandparents were packing up 33 years of their lives and moving to Georgia. I still…

The MET: Metropolitan Museum of Art Tour

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City! It’s like seeing the whole world under one roof. You have the Americas, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Ancient Europe!

There were other exhibits I was excited to see as well. Asia There was a special exhibit in the Asian section for Korean…

Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Experience

Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Experience

The Statue of Liberty is such a famous landmark. It marked entry into the United States for so many emigrating to the U.S. I’ve lived so close to New York City all of my life. This was my first visit to the Statue of Liberty. It took some friends who recently moved to the U.S. to get me to finally go. I guess Lady Liberty was never on my radar. It was definitely worth the trip. Getting to the Statue…
