πŸ‡¨πŸ‡³ In Chinese culture, the lantern symbolizes the wish for a bright future. In addition, the Chinese believe that while red is a symbol of happiness, gold is a symbol of wealth. β€’
β€’
πŸ‘€ Peep those lanterns!
Pictures do not do these lanterns justice! β€’
β€’
The colors, the lights! β€’
β€’
🎎 Have you ever been to a lantern festival?
Got a taste of China on the often forgotten borough of Staten Island! β€’
β€’
NYC had its 1st annual Winter Lantern Festival that ended this past weekend β€’
β€’
This brought back memories to my trip to China in 2013 β€’

Live performances, all of the lights, sculpting with honey β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”

New face of Coca Cola ad?! πŸ₯€ β€’
β€’
What a coincidence that the first black woman featured in an ad for Coke was also a teacher and school leader. β€’
β€’
The drink's name refers to two of its original ingredients: coca leaves and kola nuts.

Under the Sea 🌊 🐠 πŸ§œβ€β™€οΈ β€’
β€’
The aquarium was the perfect place to celebrate the end of the holiday SEAson β€’
β€’
Did you know it is considered the largest aquarium in the Western Hemisphere? β€’
β€’
There are more than 100,000 animals living there β€’
β€’
The 4D Theater, underwater experience and sea lion show makes it worthwhile! β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”

Them: β€œWhy are you visiting Atlanta?”
Me: β€œWhy not?” β€’
β€’
Before my trip when I told people I am visiting Atlanta for the holiday week, the first thing people would ask is β€œdo you have family?” β€’
β€’
While in Atlanta, those living there would say β€œYou’re from New York. Why the hell would you come here to visit!?! So random” β€’
β€’ 
This is often the reaction I get visiting any state in the country. β€’
Every time, I am reminded how unappreciated domestic travel is even in major cities such as Atlanta β€’
β€’
There is more to US travel than New York, San Francisco, LA, Miami and Chicago! β€’
β€’
Having traveled to 32 states and planning to see all 50, I promise you that every state has something to offer.

Gotta be a little DIFFERENT so no TOP NINE but... β€’
β€’
πŸŽ‰ I thought that 2017 was the most epic travel year! PROVEN WRONG!!! 2018 may have topped that. β€’
β€’
πŸ—Ί I traveled to 7 NEW countriesβ€” double of 2017 (Bahamas πŸ‡§πŸ‡Έ, Morocco πŸ‡²πŸ‡¦, Spain πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Έ, Mexico πŸ‡²πŸ‡½, France πŸ‡«πŸ‡·, Czech Republic πŸ‡¨πŸ‡Ώ, Hungary πŸ‡­πŸ‡Ί ) and returned to Haiti πŸ‡­πŸ‡Ή. β€’
β€’
πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ I also made it to 6 NEW states (UT, AZ, WY, MT, SD, MO) while revisiting several major cities more thoroughly (Boston, LA, Vegas, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Atlanta). β€’
β€’
πŸ‘©πŸΎβ€πŸ’»I took a pause on writing ✍🏾blog posts to revamp my website. β€’
β€’
✈️ This year, more than others, I got to travel with some of my fabulous friends and continue travels with my mom and boyfriend. Also met some great people along the travel journey. Creating more memories. β€’
β€’
πŸ’­ I learned 1) travel does not always go smoothly but the end result is worth it 2) sometimes you need a break from social media. This year I moreso would post after a trip so I can enjoy the trip in the now 3) just do you β€’
β€’
🌍 For 2019, with 2 international trips already in the works and plans to fulfill some bucketlist items, I hope to continue β€œreclaiming my time.” β€’
β€’
πŸ™πŸΎ Thank you for following me on my adventures and stay tuned! 2019 goals is resetting on more travels πŸ›«, more wanderlust πŸ—Ί, more blogging πŸ‘©πŸΎβ€πŸ’»

Happy NYE Eve! β€’

Christmas maybe be over but it’s still not too late to post a holiday picture right!?! β€’
β€’
Christmas to New Year’s Day or for many, Three Kings’ Day, is a holiday! β€’
