New York City Day Trip

Central Park November 2012

On Sunday I took a day trip down to New York City to do some holiday activities with my boyfriend George and our friend Gio. The trip was a bit of a splurge, but we did manage a few cheap or free things.

We drove most of the way from the Albany area, and then rode on Metro North into Grand Central. That saved us money when comparing the price to Amtrak all the way down.

It was a kind of a crummy day, but we did walk through a bit of Central Park. Our visit makes me want to go back when it’s warmer and nicer to spend the day wandering the paths.

Mini Vacation: Lake Placid, NY

Mirror Lake (which is where the majority of "Lake Placid" is located on)

This past weekend I had the opportunity to take a mini-vacation with my boyfriend to Lake Placid. It was a chance for both of us to relax a little bit. It might not have been “thrifty,” but it certainly was fun!

Here are some of my favorite photos from the weekend in Lake Placid:

At our hotel, The Golden Arrow, the ducks loved us.
We never fed them, but they still kept us company.
