I swear, every time I visit New York City, it rains. I have no idea how it happens, but, apparently, my presence in the Big Apple brings rain. Sorry, New Yorkers!
All packed up and ready to go! I grabbed a banana to take with me on my travels as a mid-morning snack.
Once I was ready to go, I said goodbye to my favorite dog.
Murphy was so tired this morning. He could barely keep his eyes open.
I know he’ll miss me while I’m away.
I still gave him a (pug) hug and a kiss before I left the house.
After saying goodbye to Murphy, I walked 1.26 miles in the rain to the train station to catch the commuter rail to Boston.
It was a nice little workout and I saved myself some cab money. Two birds, one stone.
I boarded the commuter rail, and about 35 minutes later, I arrived at South Station.
I had some time to kill before my train to New York City, so I grabbed lunch and then called my mom to chat about plans for Mother’s Day this weekend.
At South Station, I bought a turkey and brie sandwich on whole wheat bread from Cosi for lunch.
It was pretty amazing with big pieces of turkey and brie and lots of spicy honey mustard. The sandwich came with baby carrots on the side.
I also bought a KIND bar to eat later this afternoon.
Now that I’m finished with my lunch, I’m planning to get a little work done and then relax for the last hour of the trip.
Question of the Day
What’s your favorite way to travel? Plane? Train? Automobile?
I really love traveling by train, especially taking the Acela from Boston to New York City since it arrives in the middle of Manhattan. I also don’t need to deal with lots of security or worry about checking luggage and liquids over 3 ounces, like I would at the airport. It’s also fun to stare out the window and daydream!
