I’m Back From New York!

613

This was a very spiritual occurrence, we had in New Jersey looking over the Hudson River to Manhattan, New York. We’ve got rained out. But Mother Nature let us witness a beautiful moment.

Wow! This was a long trip! We went to St. Louis, Missouri; visited a friend in Columbus, Ohio; visited more friends in Niagara Falls, New York; crossed the border to see Toronto in Canada; went to New York City; saw the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and took a short break to see the in-laws in North Carolina, before we went back home to Dallas, Texas. About 3752 miles (6038 Kilometers) in 8 days were driven. Kevin, the girls and I had tons of fun on this trip. And we definitely have to go back to New York City to see more sights. In the days to come, I’ll write more blogs about this wonderful trip. ❤

Last Details For The Road Trip

This weekend I spend most of the time planning, washing laundry, what to pack, food, which roads we are taking up to the Great Lakes. After meeting with some ol’ school friends along the road, we will do another item from my bucket list, which is visiting NYC. Before we hit back home, we poke our head in to see family in North Carolina. I will take a break from blogging for these travel days. And when I’m back, I’ll write a “journal” of this trip, with photos attached, of course. 😉 But until then, I still stick around for a few days.

Ready to do some finishing touches for this up coming road trip

Washington, D.C.

Today is a very important and historical day: the USA is celebrating the Inauguration of its 45th President, Donald J. Trump, and its 48th Vice President Michael R. Pence.

I don’t want to go too deep into politics. There is other social media to discuss the aspects of political issues, and I try to keep this blog clean. But I use this opportunity to post some photos of my day vacation in Washington, D.C. back in November 2015. It was a beautiful, sunny day; a perfect day to take a walk at the National Mall, and look at some important buildings and memorials. Standing in front of some, was more emotional than others. I had the chance to get a glimpse of President Barack Obama, and I looked at the original Declaration of Independence. I also witnessed the “Changing of the Guard” at the Arlington National Cemetery. It was a great pleasure to visit the Capital of the United States of America.
