On New Year’s Eve I spent the night under the stars at this small campsite in the Sahara Desert. It was a profound and incredible experience. Notice the vibrant color and beautiful handmade rugs…I was in heaven.
(I realized it’s time to post the photos from my trip to Morocco, so expect to see them here over the course of next few weeks. and FYI- they’re all iPhone photos.)
Being the history buff that I am, I was so excited to visit Coney Island for the first time yesterday. It’s been on my bucket list of “things to do in NYC” for years, so I have no excuse for why it took me so long to visit. After riding the F train for what seemed like an eternity, we got off at the very last stop and stepped into what I can only describe as a mashup of the past 30+ years—it was amazing and beautiful. We walked along the boardwalk, explored the beach and the piers, and then walked through Luna Park. I rode the most terrifying ferris wheel of my life, the Wonder Wheel (the cars swing). I also braved sitting front seat of Cyclone, Coney Island’s infamous wooden roller coaster constructed in 1927. That ride was so rickety and fast that we felt like it could jump the track at any second. I can’t wait to visit again soon (minus a camera and wearing something more practical than sandals and a dress) so that I can go on every single ride in the park (except Zenobio – I have to think about that one).
