I have previously said to friends that I wanted my blog to be a positive place on the Internet. I went away from that a little bit with all the election coverage, but it was positive in the sense that the positive candidate won!
Now, back to travel. My mom and sister came to visit last week, and we kicked off with three days in New York City. Europeans generally LOVE NYC and my sister was no exception (my mom had been there before but not my sister.)
Since I live relatively close, I enjoy the luxury of not having to see everything when I am there - I know I can go back. I'll write more tomorrow but wanted to post a few photos. It was cold but we had quite a lot of sunshine which was nice. These are two shots from our boat ride out to see the Statue of Liberty.
