A Travellerspoint blog

My very first entry

New York City June 2011

Photographs, Food and Other Discoveries

I have a blog. Another blog. But because I can't add photographs to it, it's boring. So this morning I went in search of a new travel blog. A blog I could add photographs to, which is why we travel isn't it? At least it's why I travel. And for the food. And of course the shopping.

I am a photographer and I love my work. I love my home too. But sometimes the most fun thing of all is to take my camera and get lost on the streets of someplace that isn't my home. No matter how long I do this I'm sure I look like a kid in a candy store...wandering, smiling and pushing the shutter button. Sometimes I can't wait to look at the photos but I have to catch up on my work, so they sit for a few weeks. When I finally get to them it's like I'm taking my trip all over again.

I do take trips that are long...sometimes. Most of the time I take trips that are short....really short. Not even mini-vacations. Quick trips that might only last 2-3 days. Just enough to get a sense and a taste of the place.

So I begin with my first entry which is my trip to New York City in June. I do have a restaurant recommendation. Do you like Cuban? If you don't, you will after you eat at Victor's Cafe 52 on 52nd Street between 8th and Broadway. This was my second meal there and both were wonderful. Doesn't a Mango Mojito sound good? I tried the tamale appetizer and it was almost an open-faced tamale. Delicious!

The next step is to add a few photos....wish me luck!
