2021: Site/Blog Update

Hello! 🙂 Sorry no new posts this week. This blog is getting a bit of a make-over. I'm changing the name Susanna Travels since it's already taken in numerous social media sites and whatnot. A sunset on Long Island. As always, I'll be posting, in the near future, my travel stories and some tips along… Continue reading 2021: Site/Blog Update

2021: The Other Cloisters’ Art

A mural of a camel hung up on the dimly lit stone wall. I noticed the shadows and the way that light bounced off the walls or seeped through the windows. And there was an electrical outlet near the bottom of the floor. Impressive! About a few weeks ago, I visited the famous Cloisters in… Continue reading 2021: The Other Cloisters’ Art

2021: To Mask or Not to Mask in Manhattan

A couple of weeks ago, before Manhattan officially allowed  “vaccinated” folks to walk the streets maskless, I was in this very city all masked up. So, these were my thoughts while walking through the streets. Also, I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph strangers with their permission and with their masks on. 🙂 While the majority… Continue reading 2021: To Mask or Not to Mask in Manhattan

2021: Memory Lane at Port Jeff

So, the other day I visited Port Jeff (short for Port Jefferson) – or Down Port, as the locals call it. It brought back a lot of memories and it is one of the highlights on Long Island. It’s about a twenty minute drive from my house or about two hours by train from Manhattan. And… Continue reading 2021: Memory Lane at Port Jeff

2021: Long Island’s Tulip Festival

The other day, my puppy Mahal and I ventured to the Long Island's Tulip Festival at the Waterdrinker. Every year, this place grows rows and rows of tulips. So, purple to pink to yellow and to white tulips surrounded us. It was a rainbow of colors. Also, this festival attracted a diverse group of people,… Continue reading 2021: Long Island’s Tulip Festival

2019: The People of Nippon: Osaka

Back in January 2019, I had the wonderful opportunity to tour Japan for about five days. And it has been one of my favorite travels of all time. I not only enjoyed the historical sites and the delicious cuisine, but I also enjoyed interacting with the people of Nippon. (Nippon is one of the historical… Continue reading 2019: The People of Nippon: Osaka

2021: Traveling in Your Own Backyard

Yep, I've gone into landscaping. Give us a call if you need someone to dig in a tree. 😉 The other day, I read a NY Times article on Roff Smith. He both wrote and photographed about his local travels around his hometown in Sussex, England. Due to the pandemic, he has been confined to… Continue reading 2021: Traveling in Your Own Backyard

2021: Sunsets at Short Beach

A Self Capture of me entering in to the sunset. The sun is beginning to set. I like watching the warm colors mesh in together.  In the distance, a couple of friends are giggling. And there’s a guy who’s snapping photos away on his phone. My dog Mahal and my mom and I are basking… Continue reading 2021: Sunsets at Short Beach

2018: The People of Iceland – Part Two

Check out Part One if you haven’t already! 🙂 As mentioned before, I had a wonderful time in Iceland. I met so many interesting people who have lived their whole lives there. Also, I've met people who have immigrated there and have since then called Iceland home. These are some of the people… Adam! So,… Continue reading 2018: The People of Iceland – Part Two

2018: The People of Iceland – Part One

I think Iceland has become a top travel destination. And I imagine that once the pandemic is diminished there will be more tourists flooding there. Before September of 2018, I had no idea what Iceland was or even of its existence. When I first heard of Iceland, it just conjured up scenes from the ice… Continue reading 2018: The People of Iceland – Part One
