Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception

Regardless of your religious beliefs, when visiting Washington D.C., you should go to the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.  It is the biggest Catholic Church in the United States.  It has a modern architecture compared to the ones you can find in Europe or Latin America.

Washington D.C.

Last Labor Day Weekend, I headed to the ‌Capital City of the United States, Washington D.C. Washington will be the perfect place if you want to see monuments and museums for free. This post will be more about the monuments. Our first stop was the White House. The house looked smaller than what I was…

Hickory State Park

This park is about two and half hours from New York City.  It is over 15,000 acres and has a picnic area, a lake for swimming, and plenty of trails.  The main purpose of my trip was to hike one of the trails and to visit the boulder field, Hawk Falls.  Make sure that you eat before…

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…
