I made a spontaneous trip to New York City! I went for a weekend, three days, in July and boy was it an adventure! I’m splitting up this trip into a three part series like I did with San Francisco a few months ago (check out day one of my trip here!). This is the first day of my trip to NYC.

Buying tickets at the gate cost $70, but if you buy tickets online during summer you can get tickets for about $42. They also have … Continue reading Six Flags America
Writer’s note: I apologize that this post is a little delayed as I was finishing up my internship, finishing summer school courses, moving back across the country from Washington D.C. to Tucson, AZ, and then started school shortly after. It was all such a whirlwind experience but I wouldn’t want to change a thing! Here is my final comments on my last internship with NASA, … Continue reading Thank You, Hubble
