“In the high country of the mind one has to become adjusted to the thinner air of uncertainty, and to the enormous magnitude of questions asked, and to the answers proposed to these questions. The sweep goes on and on and on so obviously much further than the mind can grasp one hesitates even to go near for fear of getting lost in them and never finding one’s way out.”
Travel on traveler. The traveling bug is real.
Where, oh where have I been? Since my last post, I spent a night in DC and two nights in NYC before jetting off to Israel for 10 days. I figured I’d break up the past 2 weeks into 2 blog posts. How fitting. Israel will be in the next post, I promise.
While in DC, I got dinner with some lovely college friends at a delicious Mexican restaurant in Georgetown called El Centro D.F.
Cheers to college friends who are forever friends.
But seriously, Uber is one hellUVA service when you’re motor skills won’t cut it. 😉
Before catching our NYC flight the next day, my trusty travel buddy, Sara and I grabbed lunch with another college buddy, Colleen, at The Brown Bag.
Me: (While Sara is driving) Can you take a left here?
Sara: Well I am
Both of us: Wait, what time is our flight? Where’s my passport? Do we need boarding passes?

But it’s the best way to be. No expectations, just living in the moment.
Speakeasies have cool old fashion cocktails with extra pizazz.
But not nearly enough as this girl who happened to also be in NYC for a few days.
Bring on the giggles and excitement. Sorority sisters know how to get down.
I somehow managed to convince the girls to go on a tech startup tour over at FourSquare with my friend Tom.
Sara: Where’s this “Tom?”
Alex: He said he’s 5 minutes away.
Boots: Alex, did you make him up again??
Don’t worry, he did finally arrive. 🙂
After I got my inner geek on, we went to Yuca Bar & Restaurant in East Village for dinner.
Our final day in the city concluded with a coffee shop stop and a sionara brunch at Cafe Orlin.
“Our seats aren’t together so let’s tell people we need to sit together because we have snacks we have to share.”
The Israeli adventures are coming soon. Sababa!
Hope everyone is having a great summer!
