How I Spent My Summer Vacation

When you spend your days in high rises and on the subway, it’s sometimes easy to forget about the natural world. Especially if you’re like me and generally keep it at an arm’s length, referring to the great outdoors as “the nature.”

That said, when you wake up with a view like the one pictured above, it makes you appreciate it—and your generous hosts—even more. Needless to say, it was a relaxing weekend.

I even hiked!

Ok, fine. That may be a slight exaggeration. But, that photo is real and is slightly intimidating. There were also trails leading to a waterfall that I walked along. And, my legs may still be slightly sore (I’m not out of shape, really. I blame the fact that I was wearing flip flops…) There might even be a photo of me in the nature to show that it actually happened.

Mostly, though, the weekend was about doing very little, just sitting around with good friends and breathing deeply, taking a moment to enjoy.

We also ate and drank well, from the white sangria whose recipe I’m hoping to share soon to the copious amounts of grilling that happened to the stop on the ride home for ice cream. A day later, and I’m still full.

I can’t wait for the next trip.
