This past Easter weekend, I traveled down to New York and New Jersey with a couple of friends. We took the train. Whenever I tell people that, they kind of give me a weird look. Sure, it takes ALL day to get there but it’s super cheap (roughly $60 each way), they give you a bunch of leg room, the view can’t be beat, it’s very relaxing and traveling with friends is a party. I usually end up talking and giggling most of the time or watching out the window.
We have had this trip in planning stages pretty much since Christmas/January and I’ve been looking forward to it since going down last summer for a quick weekend visit. The past few months have been super busy at work. Combine that with the decision to move apartments and finding a new place for May 1st has made April a very very busy month. But it was actually really great to get away even if it was for only a few days.
- Janina and I made friends wherever we wandered.
- Museums close early
- Home brewed Root Beer and cheese fries are always worth it
- We went to the beach on Easter Sunday. The water was freezing, but it was still completely awesome
- As always, traveling by train is my favourite.
