Kaaterskill Falls

The summer continues and with it the adventures. This time, I headed to the Catskills in New York State. The destination: Kaaterskill Falls. It is a beautiful two-stage waterfall, but unlike the pictures from the internet, it does not have much water. If you have been there before, you won’t believe the story that I’m about to…

Raymondskill Falls.

I promised myself that I would try to enjoy the summer as much as I could. Enjoying summer, to me, is not drinking beers at a backyard BBQ (I barely drink alcohol). Enjoying summer, for me, is going to as many places as possible. So, I did a little bit of research on the internet, and…

AROUND NYC

My relationship with the city of New York is one of love and hate. I love the sightseeing, the restaurants, the diversity of the people, and many other things. On the other hand, I hate the traffic since I work there and have to cross the GW Bridge every day from New Jersey. I also…

Copa America is in Town

CONMEBOL (The South American Football Confederation) is celebrating its 100th anniversary with a tournament in the USA. Copa America is the oldest football competition among nations. It is the first time that it is played outside of South America. One match of the quarter finals was played in a venue close to my house, MetLife…

Memorial Day Tradition

For the last five five years, I have been going camping with my friends to Spruce Run Recreation Area. This year was special for a couple of reasons: we got a lake view camping lot for the first time, and the weather was perfect. The temperature was around 91 degrees Fahrenheit (about 33 degrees Celsius), unlike the…

Bushkill Falls!

Finals are finally over. The last two weeks of class were stressful. After the semester finished, I decided to take a relaxing day trip with some friends to the Poconos Mountains, just an hour and twenty minutes from my house. My destination was “The Niagara of Pennsylvania” – that is what it says on the promotional brochure. The…

The Key of Life

I had bought, during my trip to Egypt, a couple of souvenirs, one of which was “The Key of Life.” I’m sure that many of you know about it better than I do, but for those who don’t, I will explain it a little. “The Key of Life” is one of the most meaningful symbols of ancient Egypt. It is also called “The Key of the…

A quick visit midtown and to Chinatown in Manhattan

I had to go to the city to do something, and I decided to bring my camera to take some pictures.  I couldn’t take many pictures, but I promise you that when the weather gets better, I’ll come back and take a lot of more pictures to show the beauty of NYC. Feel free to comment on…

Cacun, Mexico: ZIp-Lines, ATV, Cenote

  One of the activities that I wanted to do during my stay in Cancun was zip-line. I went downtown, and I bought a tour from the same drunk man from whom I bought the tour to Chichen Itza. They picked me up around noon. (I have to say the transportation did not look as comfortable…

Cancun, Mexico: Day Trip to Chichen Itza and Cenote.

Being able to speak Spanish was a plus in my trip to Mexico. It made everything easier. The locals treated me like I was one of them. After a wild couple of days in the beautiful Hotel Zone of Cancun (Zona Hotelera), I did my first excursion. At first, I was a little scared because I booked my…

Egypt, Unforgettable Trip: Hot air balloon flight.

  Before leaving to Hurghada, we had one last activity to do in Luxor: a hot air balloon ride. The driver from the hot air balloon company picked us up at 3 a.m. On the way to the place, he picked up more travelers. Then, he took us to a pier from which we boarded a small boat…

Egypt, an Unforgettable Trip: Luxor

Since we had only one place to visit in Edfu, we sailed to Luxor in the afternoon. We have a relaxing evening. At dinner, we went to the sundeck. The staff had BQQ style buffet. The food tasted fresh and beyond delicious. We went to bed early because we knew the kind of day that will…
