13 MILES IN NYC

Whew, I am exhausted! By the time this posts, I’ll have been back from NYC for a week or so but I just have to give a quick update on my latest adventure. Probably my craziest adventure! 

If you’ve read my previous blog posts, you know that I picked up a trip with a 32 hour layover in NYC. I’ve never been before, and I hit the ground running! I ended up walking more than 13 (YES THIRTEEN!) miles throughout the city exploring Central Park, Times Square, Grand Central Station, the Empire State Building, and several flea markets. 

I can’t wait to show you all the pictures from NYC, and I can’t wait even more to go back! 

CANNOT WAIT FOR NEW YORK CITY!

I am just so excited! I picked up a trip to New York City in two weeks. I’ll have 32 hours to explore and I’m like a kid in a candy store. I have never been to NYC before, and can’t wait to experience the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple. Coming from California, I know that my personality is the complete opposite of the east coast. But since I started flying, I’ve become a bit obsessed with the other side of the U.S. I can’t wait to share all of my adventures in NYC, wish me luck in not getting lost! Maybe I’ll even try the subway for the first time! If you have any suggestions or tips for my trip, please let me know! 

BEIGNETS WITH MY BROTHER

Cafe du Monde. The most amazing little place that serves the world’s greatest treat. Beignets! I can’t even describe the warm, gooey, sweet little treat. You just have to try it for yourself. And here’s a tip- don’t wear black. The powder sugar will leave its mark on your tastebuds AND your clothes! 

A DAY IN WASHINGTON D.C.

Earlier this month, I was able to pick up a trip to Washington D.C. for 31 hours and I was incredibly lucky to have my dad come with me. We have always wanted to plan a trip to D.C. but we just haven’t had the time in our crazy busy schedules to make it work. Well let me just tell you we made every second of the 31 hour trip worth the wait. We walked over six miles through the heat and humidity (that humidity is INSANE!) to visit as many monuments and museums as we possibly could. The very first stop was of course the Washington Monument. I never realized just how tall it was. I could have spent my entire day there just watching planes come in for landing at IAD. My feet are blistered, but my heart is full. I had an amazing day and can’t wait to share all the amazing pictures with you all! 

 

QUICK TRIP TO NEW ORLEANS

Just last week, I was lucky enough to work a trip with 24 hours in New Orleans, Louisiana. I was even luckier because my brother Travis decided to come with me.

We had such an amazing time, I couldn’t have asked for anything more. After working a red eye from San Francisco, we took a nap for a couple hours and then hit the town. Literally. We walked over ELEVEN miles just exploring downtown New Orleans. We walked around the entire Mercedes Benz Superdome (you don’t quite realize how big it is until you try taking a picture next to it- I look like an ant!) and the Smoothie King Center. We enjoyed beignets on the Mississippi River and did some shopping at an outlet mall. We walked through the French Quarter and of course Bourbon Street. 

Being from California, we don’t have too much history. So I always enjoy getting to travel to the South and the East coast and getting to experience the US history that we have. Just  getting to look at all of the beautiful architecture was worth it. But getting to spend time with my brother was truly special. It was the first of hopefully many trips of just us kids. I can’t wait until we have all of our siblings with us for another adventure. Check back next week to see some of the great pictures we took in New Orleans!
