We love to travel. We love everything about it, and we’re not only referring to visiting new places…we love the experience of traveling from one place to another. Early morning coffee from Starbucks at the airport. The little escalator walk-y things. Take off. Haribo gummy bears at airport newsstands. Sheepish men waiting for their loved ones with flowers. Heightened senses. Getting our passports stamped (and don’t think we don’t ask for the stamp if the customs attendant attempts to forego it) (also, as a side-note, one of our favorite things about America is that when you renew your passport, the Passport Office sends you your old one. That’s quite a bureaucratic effort in the name of posterity, and we celebrate it). We’ve just arrived in Canada and are exploring Montreal and Mont Tremblant for the first time. So far it’s lovely (and even better than just getting Starbucks in the C terminal at Atlanta Hartsfield). More to come!!
Okay, I’ve clearly decided that elaney is not going away. While I was in PR with Readers Melby, Ellie, and Edykes, sunning myself on the oceanic trench located on the boundary between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean (obviously had to wiki that), I realized that it’s just too fun. So greetings from our trip and expect elaney to return with a new look and feel in the next few weeks.
Oh it was good to be back. Will we ever get to live there again? We really hope so. ATL, you’ve been good to us. Stable. Get up. Go to work. Wear loafers. Like college football. Drink, not to excess. But oh NYC, how we love thee and all thee hipster / red wine / black nail polish / quirky ways.
Check out a few fun moments!!
Oh No No No…here we go again. In NYC for less than 12 hours and already thinking about not coming home…what have we already learned?! We know that we cannot live without Target. We know that we hate shared laundry spaces. We know that we cannot handle cold. But oh Fall in NYC, how attractive are you?! NYC will always be the bad boy that captured this good girl’s heart (this good girl who knows she really needs to be with a Kansas).
However…while we are here, we’ll keep you posted on some of the places we are exploring!! Starting with Thursday night dinner at Frankie’s in the Lower East Side. Charming, hidden little Italian gem. Muy delicioso! More to come!
