4 Days in New York


Having lived in New Jersey for more than ten years, I've been to New York many times.  In April, it was my first time going with my relatives, some came as far as from Trinidad and Tobago for the funeral of my grandfather, Oscar Rivers.  It was  a night to remember; the whole gang of us trudging down towards the Path Train into the wee hours of the morning and a quick stop to the 9/11 Memorial.

On this trip however, there was a make-shift itinerary with much to do as we went for CityPasses to six attractions.  We were ready to hit the ground running, landing in New York around 4 pm on July 1st., except they wouldn't land the plane.

Five Things to do at Key Biscayne




To say that I love the sunshine state is in understatement.  For years, I would dream of 85 degree weather in the winter months in the northern United States.  When I finally made Florida my official home state early in 2012, I thought I would get to enjoy the warm winters and warmer summers finally.  But my move to South Korea, in May 2012 proved other wise.

It hasn't been a whole year since I've been back in the U-S of A and I'm finally ready to see all that the sunny Florida has to offer in terms of things to do and see.

Nine Things To Do in Key West, Florida


Although I am a resident of the state of Florida, technically, I haven't lived in the sunshine state a whole year yet. When I moved to Miami late in 2011, the plan was to stay and get my certifications to teach elementary school.  However, the opportunity to teach in Korea surfaced, and well, I took it.

Three years later, I'm back in Florida and teaching fourth grade in one of the tougher neighborhoods in South Florida.  Eek!

Still, I'm excited to be wearing flip flops and shorts late in December.  The thought of this makes me smile every single time.  ^^  Being back in state known for it's oranges and of course the NBA champions, the Miami Heat, I'm more and more interested in getting out to do stuff.  So, I started with Key West.

Here are some of the "key" highlights (pun intended):
