The beginning

It's me here again... I'm making up for the lost time so you might hear from me quiet a lot.
I've been thinking how do I even start this, it seems when I started in 2011 (saying that never gets old) I just jumped into it but my interest in travels goes way way back.
My family and I moved to US in 1996 and although I would love to tell you about that adventure, I don't recall much except that it was chaotic and long drawn and yet all over in few hours at least for me but I was only a kid, what did I know. I could tell you we flew Air France and stopped at Paris and I thought I was super "cool". I remember playing cards, eating on the plane and absolutely falling in love with flying. At least that's what I tell myself now, I might have had a different reaction 23 years ago.
Back to this current adventure though, I spent all day thinking I should start from my more recent getaways but that seems strange because that just distances us from the older ones so I am going to do the opposite and start from where it all began...

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…
