Question of the day:

Due to the complete lack of anything interesting/controversial/catastrophic happening in my life right now, I'm going to ask YOU some questions. I am dreaming about going somewhere (due to the fact that it is supposed to snow here this weekend). So let's talk about travel.

Would you rather travel to a large city (ie: Paris or Washington DC or New York), or to a remote area (a cabin in Alaska, S. America, tropical island)?

If you were going to New York City and only had 3-4 days, what would you want to do there?

When you travel, do you like to do "touristy" things, or would you rather experience the place as a "local"?

Good One!!!

Personally, I'd rather be in a samll town. But if I were going to NYC, hmmmm. this is hard, I don't like musicals so I wouldn't be interested in Broadway. Would probably love to see Central Park - by carriage. Would DEFINATELY want to see the Statue of Liberty. OK, I guess this means I'd want to do the touristy stuff. I don't know, what else do people do when they go to NYC???

Actually, I think the historical aspect of NYC since 9/11 is interesting in itself...

If in NYC, (I LOVE musicals ) I would love to see a Broadway show, or in December the Rockettes. Otherwise, I would prefer an island, warm tropical breezes, warm sandy beaches and cool tropical drinks. Oh, and someone to wait on me. Bring me goodies.
In ordinary cities, I love historical "stuff", and always want to know how the area was settled, by whom. Have always loved tales of Wagon Trains.
Most of this is probably now a dream as I don't sprint like I used to. dammmmmmit

Jodi, NYC has an AWESOME Museum of Natural History that, I thought, put the Smithsonian Natural History Museum to shame. If you're into that kind of stuff. Which I am!

Then there's Ground Zero, Central Park, Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building....shopping, of course, and Broadway musicals. I know NY isn't your cup of tea, but I didn't expect to like it nearly as much as I thought. There is just SO MUCH to do there, so much history, so much culture....

Mom, I can't remember...have you been to NY before? I'm thinking you went once with Cheri Elms or am I crazy?

No, I've never been north of DC. Cheri and I went by train ( it only seemed like forever ) to Philidelphia. LOTS of history there and I walked it all, by my lone, while Cheri was in meetings. It was awesome, literally, to walk into buildings in which our country was founded. Including Betsy Ross's house. We also went to Quaker country. That was beautiful as were the people and their culture.
