Over the Weekend: Exploration

What are weekends for if not to make the most of every hour with friends? That was exactly what this past weekend was about. Staying up through the night (morning?) and waking up early to start the shenanigans all over again. I loved it!

A group of friends and I explored the Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks after our planned pontoon boat adventures went awry on Saturday morning. We had a great lesson about sponges... Did you know they don't grow bacteria or mold? So I bought a couple and replaced my loofah.

I also visited the Chihuly Collection. Such beautiful and intricate pieces! I really want to try my hand at glass blowing, for fun!

How was your weekend?

Weekend in New York

I can describe my New York trip in one word: Food. Most of my adventures started and ended with food in mind, and I am not complaining! I ventured into the city with sorority sisters, traveled through Brooklyn and Williamsburg. Three days in the city really is just not enough to see everything, but we've travelled enough to the point that our feet were feeling the pain. Wearing proper shoes would've helped too, but that's beside the point. (? :P) 

Quick rundown of places I've stopped:

** There was a lot of dessert that was eaten. I have a sweet tooth. Obviously.

From Over the Weekend: New York

I went on a short getaway trip to New York to visit some friends and to step away from ho-hum weekends here at home. I was hoping the weather would have been much warmer than it was (high 30's and 40's) but it was a lovely weekend nevertheless!

**Apparently Saturday was National Pillow Fight Day, so I had the chance to witness a park full of people clubbing each other with fluffy pillows. There's always something interesting to see and do in the City isn't there?

More on New York later!
