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

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

2020: Behind Granada

With leisure travel closed for the time being, I feel pensive about one place in particular: Granada. Back in March of 2020 before the pandemic, I was teaching English in Madrid, Spain. And on one of those weekends, my friends and I took a road trip down south to Granada. We definitely visited the historical… Continue reading 2020: Behind Granada

2021: Happy Valentine’s Day!

During this time, I totally dream of venturing out into the world. However, waiting at home has made me think about what I want more… Continue reading 2021: Happy Valentine’s Day!

2020: First Fall Snow

Yep, this is normal. 😉 A selfie of me. Woo! I am the Ultimate Snow, Tree Hugger Lady. ;P Last night, we experienced our first major snow storm for the fall. And I was kind of surprised.

2020: Our Lady and the Saints

The Blessed Virgin Mary. A couple of weekends ago, my mom and I ventured onto Our Lady of the Island, which is a mini pilgrimage and also a shrine for the Blessed Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus and the mother for all us believers, too. We went there to pick up a statue of… Continue reading 2020: Our Lady and the Saints

2020: 33 Years of Travel

A view of Manhattan Wow, 33 years of travel! A couple of days ago, my parents and I celebrated (we've been quarantined together since March) my birthday in the city. And we visited my favorite park: Fort Tryon Park, which also houses the Cloisters. It's a medieval-like structure with medieval art inside, such as the… Continue reading 2020: 33 Years of Travel

2020: Last Day of Summer

A couple of weeks, I strolled through Stony Brook Village with my dog Cookie. We caught the sunset and watched several dog walkers go to and fro while we wore our masks and kept our distances. Life isn't how it used to be since everything went haywire back in March. Right here in the village… Continue reading 2020: Last Day of Summer
