Travel: My Quick Getaway List

Now that my baby is a little older, I am ready to get my travel on again! Right now I am focused on “weekenders”.  These are trips you can go on and for 2 or 3 days and then come back ready to take on the real world again.  I have compiled my list of 2018 quick getaway trips that I am set to go on this year or am looking into that won’t break the bank, but will feed the need for a much needed getaway or two.


NYC Travel Guide from a New York Enthusiast

I absolutely love New York City. I totally get that it’s not for everyone though. The way New Yorkers drive down narrow roads weaving in and out of lanes to the point where you just don’t look out the window, the waft of urine that hits you every 3 to 4 blocks or so, the people pushing past you as you speed down the cross walk. It ain’t everybody’s cup of tea, but it’s SO mine. If it weren’t for the lack of sweet tea in restaurants, the lack of ice in drinks at restaurants (weird), and the lack of Whataburger, I would move to NYC in a heartbeat. With recent business trips I have gotten to re-live the glory days and much more. Here are a few highlights and also some tips if you are planning a trip to New York from a New York enthusiast!
