More NYC

Blessed as my life is with adventures, I recently spent a long weekend in New York City. My previous two visits to this one-of-a-kind destination had not included an overnight stay. I arrived via Newark, New Jersey, and immediately took the train and subway to my hotel in Brooklyn. This being a unique experience in and of itself, trains? In the United States? This is something that sadly, very few parts of the country have available as a functional part of society. The New York subway is unlike any other underground transit, such diversity, I don’t think I have ever experienced in one space, it was magnificent! Being situated in Brooklyn, gave me a much broader vision of the city (prior visits were only to Manhattan). This city is, while a part of the U.S., is nothing like the rest. If I was forced to make a comparison, I would say most like London, in its massiveness of people, experiences and opportunities. Whatever your heart desires, can be expressed and explored here.
Here is a few pictures from my perspective…

Scotland

I recently took a few days to hop up to Scotland, for a “cities” tour. What a difference a couple hundred miles can make, the sound of bagpipes, the chill in the air, and the warm people with one of the most challenging english accents, outside of Liverpool, in my humble opinion. To me, it’s a magical place. Enjoy…

Narrowboat Life

Life never ceases to amaze me with the possibilities, I am so blessed to now be experiencing life from a narrowboat, in the midlands of England. Being on the canals and rivers in a narrowboat is a very unique and calm way of life. It’s like a whole different world really, and has suited me quite well. I can’t imagine life any sweeter, but we will see… ;)

Until next time, these are a few pictures from my first week aboard…

Paris, and break

I have reached the last destination, on my short european tour, Paris! From Notre Dame, to the Eiffel tower and all the other great places to visit, there is so much to do and see. I am not exactly sure I would agree that this is the “most romantic” city in the world, but it is a beautiful place to visit. I have only spent a few days here for now, I will be back.

Paris also marks the beginning of a new chapter. I feel though that this Nomad has finally accomplished what was set out for almost a year ago now; and have finally wore myself out of traveling (for now?). I have been very blessed to be able to check everything off of my bucket list, except the aurora borealis, wrong time of year now!

The places I have been, people I have met along the way, the unbelievable things that I have able to experience, have left me forever changed! I can say without question this has been the most amazing year of my life, so far! A huge thank you to everyone who has played a part in it, in any way. I am excited to see what unfolds ahead….

Nederland.

The Netherlands! I have wanted to come here for a very long time. I find myself constantly saying “it’s so damn cute!”, everywhere I look, filled with color and vibrancy, it overwhelms the senses. The old mixes with the new, like no place I have ever seen. The people here are wonderful, and the service here, is of a very interesting sort. The level of efficiency is hard to put in words. And if you think you have comfortable shoes? This breathtaking place will confirm or laugh at that notion. Couple more days in Amsterdam and I will be off to my final bucket list destination, of my world tour (for now). I am feeling a sense of home settle in already…

Berlin.

Berlin is one of those places that was not originally part of my plan. After speaking to many people, who said I would enjoy it, I gave it a go! Not at all what I expected; I found a spacious city filled with nature, and lots of space to roam about. Berlin, is a big city, with tons of activities and places to see. I found within, a thriving “bohemian” influence, and very liberal and liberating feel. Something that seems very unique to me. It’s truly one of those places where you can find anything your heart desires. I will be back!

Jumping around Europe

I have spent the last couple weeks jumping around, wrapping up in Italy, and finally made it to Barcelona, and then into Germany. It has been a lot of traveling in a very short period of time. I figured it was time to share a few more pictures. Enjoy
