I visited NYNY last summer with a friend and had a total blast! We went for a tv show and stayed a hotel right across from St. Patricks Cathedral My room had a great view! and we were just a few blocks from Central Park. It was fantastic! We ended up just roaming the subways and then ended up at a nightclub til 5am. Sadly, we weren’t there for very long, but it’s a place I definitely want to return to.over 6 years ago
A couple of years ago, I flew to England to visit family and friends. The country is absolutely beautiful, but it was the flight over Ireland that changed my life. You see, my father’s side of the family is Irish, hard core Irish, and seeing the land of my ancestors just flipped a switch somewhere inside of me and I spent the descent into London crying tears of joy to have seen the place my family had come from. Kind of cheesy, but it meant a lot to me.
While in England, I stayed in Somerset in the town of Yeovil. I got to see Stonehenge, which is much smaller than I thought it would be. On returning to the U.S I noticed that the air smelled filthy. I certainly wouldn’t mind returning to the beautiful country I left behind someday.over 6 years ago
I spent 5 years living in the Philippines between the ages of 9 and 13. We spent about a year in San Angeles, which is right outside of , the now defunct, Clark AFB. I vividly remember the street vendors in the mornings, the strikers, carabou, Sari Sari stores and jeepnies! I loved the climate and the colorful people who were are gracious and teeming with knowledge they wished to share.
I was also an evacuee in the Mt. Pinatubo eruption. I remember looking at all the ash falling from the sky and wondering if it was as soft as the snow I remembered from America. I soon found out it wasn’t!over 6 years ago
