Travel: New York City

I was lucky enough to spend this past weekend in New York City. My trip was off to a rough start because my 3 hour drive from Waterloo to Toronto (3 hours…instead of 1.5 hours) meant that I missed my Porter flight to Newark. I sucked it up and paid the $150 fee to get on the later flight which was delayed an hour. I was seriously on the verge of tears when I found out about the change fee and the delay and I was so completely frustrated from my 3 hour journey in traffic that I ended up hating my very first experience with Porter. I ended up getting into Manhattan at midnight after an 8 hour journey (8 hours!).

The rest of the weekend made up for my flight. I met my 3-week old niece, played with my three nephews, caught up with my sister and brother-in-law, and went shopping with my mom. I also spotted white all over the city.

Vacation Update: NYC

Well – my three week mini tour of the USA is now over. After Chicago and Florida, I headed to Manhattan to spend time with my family. My nephews kept me thoroughly entertained and in between naps (theirs and mine), I experienced some of what the city has to offer.

It’s always sad when vacations come to an end, isn’t it? These past three weeks were full of laughter, delicious meals and quality relaxation time. I’m so thankful that I had this amazing travel opportunity. And yes, I’m already eager to go on another travel adventure!
