A-Dong International Supermarket Tour

A-Dong International Supermarket Tour

2020 has been rough on everyone. We all just want to travel far away. International supermarket trips make great staycations even better. Feel like you’re in another country. Imagine the sights, sounds and tastes of a faraway land. International supermarkets truly transport you to another country. The A-Dong Supermarket is located in Hartford, Connecticut. It made me feel like I was traveling to Asia. It was a wonderful feeling. Keep reading for what I saw on that trip. There were…

Staycation Postcards: Captain’s Cove Seaport in Connecticut

A staycation or road trip is the best ways to travel right now.  Last week I made my way over to a great local spot in Connecticut called Captain’s Cove Seaport.

Captain’s Cove Seaport is located in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Explore the little shops located in what look like…

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…

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…
