    New York City Things to Do

    I took my best photos of the Statue of Liberty from the board of New York Water Taxi. When you visit New York City just choose sunny or partly cloudy day, check when the sunset supposed to start on that day, after that just take the water taxi. I took the water taxi at the Pier 79 not far from the USS “Intrepid” and traveled down the River Hudson,...

Plan on sharing and definitely save room for dessert!!

The people watching there was also really interesting and a wall right there was a great backdrop for a selfie. There is a huge...

    Went there for an anniversary dinner with the wife while in Sedona. Very nice atmosphere, the place is always crowded with a wait so come early. The food was good, hard to mess up a fire grilled ribeye without trying real hard. It's a bit pricey for what you get but for a special treat it is worth it.

It's also a great place to take kids, as it's very noisy and always crowded. They have great margaritas, and the beef fajitas are the BEST! Enchiladas and fajitas ROCK!! In my humble opinion, they also have the best chips and...

    As I read a book about America's 6th President, John Quincy Adams, it is interesting to read about his travels at an early age with his father, John Adams, the 2nd President, and by himself. A few quotes and observations from a book by Harlow Giles Unger.

    "Foreign travel would also enhance John Quincy's education and accelerate his evolution into the wise and great man his parents expected him to become."
    At age 10 he and his father made their first crossing across the Atlantic where they were chased by 3 British frigates who were out to capture the senior John Adams.
    On his second voyage at age 12 "savage storms split the ships seams, water seeped aboard and the captain ordered all adults (10 and over) to take turns working the pumps in 4 hour shifts." They did this over the course of many days. When they finally reached land and "after the men stopped pumping 7 feet of water had filled the hull of the ship."

    At Age 16 because of his language skills be went to Russia as a secretary/translator with Francis Dana, U.S. minister to the court of Empress Catherine II (who spoke no French). French was then the language of diplomacy. To get from where he and his father were in Holland to St Petersburg he travelled 2000 miles through various countries and kept a daily diary. After his duties there ended he made his way back to Holland via Scandanavia and Germany. He especially enjoyed Sweden where he "plunged into Swedish life for early six rapture-filled weeks." His thoughts about the Swedes at the time were "I believe there is no country in Europe where the people are more hospitable and affable to strangers."

    Here's to America's first European travelller, John Quincy Adams.

    He would have been a great VT member. Don't you think?
