It seems I’ve taken a little break from the blog. I’ve actually taken a break from almost all types of online social activity recently, only taking a few minutes here and there to post a quick blurb on Twitter. However, in keeping up with a common theme from the past couple of years I’m inclined to take some time to write a long overdue post about my trip to NY last month. The trip was very quick lasting only two full days, not counting the bookend travel days. The reason for the trip was personal… for the most part.
There wasn’t a whole lot accomplished during the weekend trip. I stayed with my parents on Long Island and devoured a pizza from Colosseo’s on Saturday. The Sicilian pizza with extra cheese is still my favorite. All other pizza’s from around the world are just playing second fiddle to Colosseo’s.
The flight was with Delta Airlines, which was a change from the usual routine with Southwest Airlines. It helped that Delta had a red-eye flight, something I’m usually not a big fan of, but was needed for such a quick cross country trip. I was able to get some sleep on the flight to NY with the help of some behind the counter medicine. That same medicine didn’t seem to do the trick on the way back though. Just goes to show how uncomfortable I find flying.
The timing of the trip was apparently perfect. There were some flurries the Monday morning before heading back to the west coast, but I was spared having to deal with the enormous amount of snow that fell in the tri-state area a few weeks later. Although, there’s a part of me that would have liked to be there to take it in.
Due to flying during night hours I was unable to get a decent picture from the window seat of the plane. I’ll see what I can do during my next trip, which is scheduled for the end of this month when I will visit Indianapolis for the 5th straight year. Until then, I can’t promise too many posts to the blog unless something comes to mind.
