If you have noticed what I have, you have learned that in New York City we usually only have the privilege of enjoying what it seems to be only two months of summer and the rest just feels like Winter and a winter remix which some may consider the fall and spring season. Therefore as a person who has lived in Southern California for the majority of my adult life, even though I lived in NYC until I graduated high school I have always made it a point to explore the fun and different things New Yorkers usually take for granted during the summer.
Recently I found out there are local parks that have hidden hiking trails and I was so grateful to have been introduced to them. Can you believe I found one hidden gem in the bronx. Yes, Bronx the part which boarders with Manhattan.
During my time living in California, I found so much peace and tranquility in hiking and for a long time it was my salvation. I am grateful for my friends that introduced me to different hiking trails. Now no matter where I go I seek to find the hidden gems that people call hiking trails that are simply roads that are often less travelled. Now that I am in NYC I have made an effort to escape the concrete jungle and find the beauty that this city has to offer.
Traveling to me means adventure! It gives me a sense of living. Adventure to me, means experiencing something new and making it a fun time!

“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes […]
Its not the easiest journey when you’re becoming a solo traveler. The ability to solely rely on yourself is something that takes time, months, even years to acquire for some. Perhaps there are some people who have been chosen for this lifestyle whom may have been instilled the thirst for adventure throughout their adolescents. The way […]

This soul that resides in me will forever live, though one day I may seize to exist. My journey of existence began at birth but it was when I left home after high school for college that I began to evolve into me. My ambition drove me across the country. I needed to fill this void of inadequacy. To me that meant leaving everything I knew behind and finding myself in this world, which I soon found bigger than many of us realize. I found myself in San Francisco, California attending Academy of Art University as a 17 year old Dominican girl with the hustle of a New York native. San Francisco was my first impression of the west coast. Let’s just say; I left San Fran after living there for 7 months and decided I never wanted to look back at that time and place. But today is a new day and I am grateful that the universe led me there to begin the evolution of my greatness. …To be continued.
