Navigating the concrete jungle of New York City, I found myself crossing the Bronx-Whitestone Bridge, a marvel that’s been standing since 1939
Drove 20 hrs from Boston to Twin Cities. Got wowed by Chicago’s skyline & Minnesota’s snow. Visited Saint Paul City Hall, geeked out at a hockey exhibition, and cheered at a Minnesota Wild game. On the way back, found a Sopranos pinball at a gas station. Best. Road Trip. Ever.
Descended into Boston, got welcomed by a surprise snow bridal gown! Zip to Minnesota, return to a snow-free Boston, as if Mother Nature used a giant eraser. Met MIT’s ‘genius-risk’ police, chilled in Harvard Gardens. Left with memories of Boston’s weather whims and intellectual charm. Lesson learned: Boston’s as unpredictable as my grandma’s meatloaf recipe.
Traded Vegas’ neon for Hoover Dam’s concrete grandeur, where I time-traveled between Nevada and Arizona! Marveled at Lake Mead’s desert oasis vibes – it’s a ‘dam’ impressive sight, making even the glitzy Vegas jealous!
Vegas’ CES was a rollercoaster of tech delights, mixing familiar wonders with fresh innovations. The recipe for success? Early arrival, a coffee stash, and a spirited team! Plus, the thrill of Vegas was capped off with two electrifying NHL games, cheering on the Golden Knights. Pure Vegas magic!
Boston, you sly fox! My lightning visit was like speed-dating with history – blink and you miss a century. Can’t wait to return and stay longer!
Tackle the Manitou Incline’s ‘stairway to heaven’ with its 2,768 railroad-tie steps – it’s like a gym workout with a view! Local athletes sprint up in 30 mins; others might just turn it into a day-long adventure. Nearby, the snowy Garden of the Gods and Pikes Peak provide perfect ‘cool down’ scenery – or excuses to take a break!
Aboard Lufthansa from Frankfurt to Denver, I marveled at Canada’s moon-like landscapes and the stunning confluence in South Dakota. In Colorado, the Garden of the Gods and ‘Far Cry 5’ scenery mesmerized me. The journey ended on a high note with the live thrill of the Stanley Cup Final at 10,000 meters, witnessing Ovechkin’s triumph.
In the heart of a snow-muted NYC, we relished the luxury of a hotel bed after a cramped plane ride. Exploring the eerily quiet city, we were awed by Madison Square Garden, prepping for Timberlake’s concert and a major sports clash. Our journey ended with a swift, surreal drive to Newark, escaping the city’s usual chaos.
In just five exhilarating hours, we jetted from Seattle to New York on JetBlue, plunging into adventure. Anticipating a fierce snowstorm, we wandered through Long Island’s scenic vistas. Our Brooklyn nights were ignited at the Barclays Center, witnessing the intense clash of hockey titans – the Islanders and the Penguins – in a game charged with playoff fever and star power.
