Tour Adventures of 2016

May 2016

I always find touring cities intriguing because with all the modern changes there is history all around you, if you take the time to stop, look, then explore.

I saw a Smithsonian Museum right in the heart of Manhattan on my previous tour of the city in 2015, so naturally I had to visit.

 The Museum of American Indian.










June 2016

The Philly & Amish Country day trip tour started in the city's historical district, the walkabout took us pass some of the notable buildings, The First Bank of United States, The Mint, Carpenter's Hall, Betsy Ross House and Franklin Court Market Street houses.


Carpenter's Hall


I was fortunate to meet Chris the Resident Woodcarver at the Amish Farm and House, and had a pair of wooden spoons personalized.

Soho Little Italy Chinatown Tour


Soho Street Art



The tour kicked of on the weekend prior to start of the Feast of San Gennaro in Little Italy, so all the street decor was up, the restaurants were doing good business, as people from all walks of life came out the enjoy the pre-event energy it was festive. 

I had ice cream at Ferrara's yummy.


I saw there was an Italian American Museum along the way, I anticipate a visit in the future.



Then off to Chinatown we go for some Dim Sum and view a few games at Columbus Park.

Adventures First Half of 2017

Early March 2017

My love for travel, history and exploring started with books, my natural curiosity did the rest.

The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum




When in NYC shopping is not far from my mind, so I visited LV and got myself a present.




Later in March my BFF and I dance to Uncle Charlie in concert.





Early July 2017

Off to the races I went on a tour of Belmont Park Race Track, the place is huge and makes me wonder what it is like when they have the Belmont Stakes. There were plenty of people having picnics at the park, others there for the races.
