A rainy day in NYC

Usually when I am traveling I dislike the rain. The rain means that whatever activity I had planned will be affected. The rain can really put a ‘damper’ on things, you feel me? However, I am really coming to appreciate going indoors for entertainment.

On this rainy day in New York City we decided to check out the Met. Lucky for us it wasn’t too crowded and we went right in!

I have been told that the Met is America’s premier art museum and it did not disappoint!

The floor tile might not be art to all but I really loved the pattern.

After all that museuming a girl can get hungry, we yelped and found The Penrose. 10/10 reccomend! Amazing cocktails and food!

The Freedom Trail…and where to eat and dessert

If you are in Boston, you should follow the Freedom Trail.  If you can go on a weekday it will probably be less crowded which in my opinion is better! The Freedom Trail is a wonderful way to see the city but also learn more about our nation’s history and walk where are forefathers walked.

I think the best of my trip.IMG_3743 IMG_3744 IMG_3745 IMG_3746 IMG_3747 IMG_3748 IMG_3749 IMG_3751 Boston HarborIMG_3754 IMG_3755 IMG_3757 IMG_3758 IMG_3759 IMG_3760Most places you go to in North Beach will be amazing but Giacomo’s Ristorante should be tried.  Be prepared to get in line at 3:30 they open at 4. We got there right at 4 and had to wait in line for 45 minutes. TOTALLY worth it – but if you don’t like waiting get there early.IMG_3761 IMG_3762 IMG_3763 Modern Pastry is also a must stop in Boston. Mamacita you need a cannoli here. There will be no regrets! Even if you gain a few inches around your hips…IMG_3764 IMG_3765 IMG_3766 IMG_3767 IMG_3768 Variety is the spice of life… you can pick and choose your cannoli, filling and topping.IMG_3771 Goodnight from the blood moon! Thats the best I could do on my iphone. IMG_3772

IF you can’t already tell I had an amazing trip filled with eating, drinking, sightseeing and my jeans not fitting anymore!
