I’m back! Last weekend we went to New York City for a late Valentine’s Day getaway and it has taken me a few days to get back into the swing of things.
I’m certain that it was probably the worst time of year to go to NYC and plan to walk around. It was so incredibly cold it was actually painful. Besides that neither my Husband or I have a good sense of direction. So, we relied on Google Maps to help us get from place to place. That was a mistake! We’d walk in one direction following the map and then it would switch back to the direction we just came from. I think we spent more time trying to find our way around then we did at our actual destination. On the way to the Guggenheim museum Google Maps lead us on a round about way through Central Park.

When we finally arrived at the Guggenheim Museum we were too cold to even take photos outside like we planned.
I did get a few inside shots. We studied this museum in Art History class, so it was something that both of us wanted to go see. Unfortunately, it was a little bit disappointing because we were under the assumption all of the floors had different paintings or artwork. It turns out that they were featuring an exhibit called, On Kawara-Silence. It was incredibly disappointing. However, we did get to see a Monet and Picasso.
Our adventure continued onto the Natural History Museum. Then we met some friends and had some amazing Thai food!
We went to see Hedwig and the Angry Itch on Broadway. Mainly because “Dexter” had the lead roll that night.
Of course we had to stop at Lush since there isn’t one locally where I live.
Overall the trip was good besides the frustrations of walking around getting lost and trying to figure out the subway system!
