I’ve missed my blog since last week! It was great to step away from the laptop, hang onto my camera, and experience all that Manhattan has to offer…including potential hurricanes. We flew to NYC last Thursday, and just returned last night.
It’s bittersweet to be home, but I’ve had a great time looking through my photos from the long weekend, and now it’s time for an action-packed day. Remember how busy my Tuesdays can be??
Things I learned:
A banana & packet of nut butter is still the most delicious & convenient travel snack.
Don’t buy round-trip tickets on the NJ Transit to get from Newark to Manhattan when there’s a hurricane coming to town that potentially might interrupt scheduled rides. (We took a cab to the airport yesterday evening because the trains weren’t running.)
People who work at lululemon athletica are friendly, kind, and open. It was fun to visit different stores in Manhattan. (More to come on that.)
Stay in a hotel that brings you a complimentary afternoon fruit plate, and eat it all before Billy has a chance to know it was there in the 1st place.
Running with your camera isn’t as annoying as I thought it might be, and LÄRABARS are my perfect pre-run fuel (already knew, but reinforced).
I could be very happy living in NYC if for nothing more (but there’s soooo much more) than the countless convenient, and healthy, food options.
I found a new favorite market (there are so many fabulous markets in Manhattan):
Birds and horses make me happy.
“No photos, please.”
It’s OK to be a tourist and rent bicycles to ride around Central Park…
If you’re able to capture magical images like these:
There are many more lessons learned on this trip to New York City. Stay tuned!
What’s one little lesson you’ve learned while traveling?
I’ve been out of the loop since last Thursday. I’ve missed you all, so please tell me one thing that’s new with you!
