21 days later

Hello... My name is M and I'm a travel-holic...
They say admitting you have a problem is the first step to curing an addiction, but what happens when you don't want to cure one? It's been exactly 21 days since my last trip and I am  planning my next one and no I am not ashamed!!!
While fighting with google map, I had come up with an awesome idea! - I had realized that I am a genius when it comes to planning trips and should share it with the rest of the world. Sure, I might be the only person to read it and possibly few of my closest friends & family since I will be forcing them to do so, but at least it will give me a much needed break from currently deciding between a beg bug infested hotel and one that's located slightly further from Beagle Street.
For those of you who are a bit confused, Beagle Street is the most famous street in Memphis (yep, I googled it and much like you until I began planning my trip down south, I had no idea).
You have to forgive me and please understand that I had never had any experience with blogging, but I can assure you I have had my share of travels...
I think combining my 3 true loves in this tiny white box in front of me is pretty much as insane as my next 8 day trip but you never know right?!
Before I run off to dinner, I guess I should tell you more about these so-called loves of mine: Being a journalism major, has somehow convinced me that my writing skills are superb and I had spent the last 3 (or is it 4) years of my post-college life trying to find topics to write about. I had tried fiction, diary, erotic and now had finally arrived at travel. My second hobby which should probably be my first is traveling or should I rather say exploring. There is just some unexplained feeling I get from being somewhere for the first time, discovering a sign that has been there for decades, driving down a road with abandoned houses on the side. That feeling of stepping out of a car where you can hear Brittney Spears, Guns N Roses and Lady Gaga playing and having your foot hit the ground which is surrounded by silence is what I live for when I am not snapping pictures, which brings me to the last of this trilogy and that's photography.
Ok, gotta go, my first reader awaits outside with ideas for dinner while I prepare to stare into her puzzeled face as she reads this.

Remember me?

Hi friends! It sure has been a while! I have spent the last month or so very preoccupied with the thought that I might be missing out on life as I have not ventured outside of New York City in pretty much 3 months. And while spending my days visiting rooftop wineries, frolicking ( my favorite word ever) in Central Park, throwing a fabulous rooftop surprise birthday party and catching up on every Netflix and Hulu show imaginable to man, I've come to a conclusion that I (and you) don't always have to leave this great city in order to wander and explore. Therefore, I've decided to bring you up to speed on my recent adventures in New York City (and 1 short drive away) and then maybe you can plan your own day (or few) of adventuring.
Let's go back to Memorial Day Weekend, when I had originally started writing this entry. I wanted to know how you weekend went and tell you all about mine.
My, what seems like so long ago, weekend began by me having one last drink on my friend …

Dominican Republic: A vacation to die for

So if you’ve been reading the news, checking social media or chatting to literally anyone, you know that Dominican Rep has been getting a lot of attention lately and not the good kind. Let me preface this entry with my opinion - If you have plans to travel to DR in the immediate future you might want to check out a different country with maybe slightly less unexplained deaths in the last few months ( for full list of travel advisories, click here. I warn you there are quiet a few places on the list but don’t get discouraged from traveling my friends ). I also should then mention that quiet a good number of my Dominican friends will tell you that DR is just as safe (or unsafe) as any other county so I guess book that trip! or don't! You know whatevs. Side note: This also serves as a great topic at a BBQ but as my friends and I have learned, Alexa has 0 opinion on this topic.  Ok now as for me - all this talk about DR no matter how heart breaking, reminds me of an amazing time I had …

I went to 3 wine fests so you don't have to

Hi there! Me again. No I am not about to write about another travel adventure but I am here to tell you about a different kind of adventure. I don’t believe that adventure only awaits when you leave the Town, City or State, I strongly believe you can adventure everywhere. Therefore I’ve decided that now and again I’ll let you know about things I do in and around NYC. This blog is not only about far away destinations but also about every day experiences easily available to each and every one.  In January of 2019 I have decided that I am going to be a healthy adult and took part in dry January. For those of you unfamiliar with concept - don't try this at home. HA! Basically it's a sad & cold winter month when one gives up alcohol. As any healthy adult who just gave up drinking for at least 30 days would do, I immediately found and bought tickets to a wine fest. The good news is it was months away so plenty of time to give my liver a chance to regenerate itself after all the b…
