Finally Day 2

What can I say?! I've totally abandoned my writing and had turned to baking but during few moments of clarity, I realize that it would be totally amazing to document my travels and write down all the awesome and not so awesome places I have visited.
Speaking of not to awesome, the very first thing on our agenda in Newport was a scenic train ride. I've always wanted to go on one and on one we went... Boooring!!!
We then headed to Fort Adams which was I guess somewhat cool, not worth the trip but an intersting detour. The coolest thing about Fort Adams is that right from it you can continue on to the coolest drive ever along the ocean? lake? body of water!
Pass the sign for Brenton Point State Park and continue on the windy road. You won't be sorry. Make sure you got cool song on the radio, your shades and don't look back.
On our drive we stumbled upon Castle Hill Inn and lighthouse http://www.lighthouse.cc/castlehill/index.html, which is a MUST SEE !
After you marvel at the amazing views and are feeling super romantic, stop by the Newport winery and grab me a bottle of their newport white wine... I assume it would help if I knew the name but when you do their tasting, trust me you'll know which one to buy. We even went back but more on that later...
When you are nice and tipsy you may go eat at http://www.barkingcrab.com/ ... BEST SEAFOOD !!! Enough said :)
Because no trip is complete without an abandaned haunted ruins, we somehow have stumbled upon this: I dont know what its called or where exactly on our drive we spotted, I only know that it looks like this -


Another stop on your drive would be the Beavertail Lighthouse, I was there in crazy winter with insane winds and after all that I am still in love with it!!!

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…
