Top Things to See at the MET: The MET Museum Highlights Tour

The MET Museum houses more than 2 million works of art. It’s the largest museum in America and one of the largest in the world. To say it’s overwhelming is an understatement. So if you’re going to visit, you need a game plan. Basically, you’re going to do a loop counter-clockwise on the ground floor, then go up the main stairs and loop clockwise around the top floor. That’ll allow you to hit all the sections with the best flow. If you want to see the video tour, watch it here. Otherwise, read on. So you enter the Great Hall and go to your right. This is Egypt. Go to the end of the hallway until you get to the Temple of Dendur. That little body of water is meant to represent the Nile. You’ll notice throughout the MET, they’ve tried to recreate the way things would have looked if…

Photographs from Carnevale di Venezia 2017

Carnevale in Venice has been on Brian’s bucket list for years and this last Europe trip was planned around being in Venice during one of the busiest weekends of Carnevale. Venice is already enchanting with all the canals, architecture, and gondolas and Carnevale took it to the next level! It was a magical experience—like a

Up Late on the High Line

We were super excited about tonight. The High Line, which we’ve been on plenty of times before, invited the City to come out and play after dark, in an event they called Up Late on the High Line. Along with the ability to roam the park after normal closing hours, they invited artists to create various light and sound installations to entertain us. Sounds like an amazing event, right? You can see why we were excited to go. And so was everyone else. We waddled along and saw a few cool things (check out the video below for the full experience), but around 10:45 it was already too packed and they were asking people to leave. We made it to about the Standard: So we turned back and took a few long exposures on 14th Street just to kill some time… And then we wandered along 14th Street to Black…

Pamukkale

Let’s practice saying this together because we still can’t get it right. Pah-MOO-Kah-lay However you say it, it’s beautiful. I know you’re just here for the pictures, but for those of you that are actually going to go here, here’s some tips. Then the pic explosion. 1. Take the minibus from Denizli Otogar. The train station is right near there too. We chose a hotel next to the bus station so we could walk from the train and bus station. It was perfect. The minibuses leave from the bottom level, Peron 76 (Gate 76). The buses are comfy, seat about 15, and take about 20 minutes to get to Pamukkale. 2. You’ll see the white hill as you’re getting close, but it will disappear as the minibus cuts into the town to the bus station. Keep your bearings straight so you know which way to head when you get out.…

Ephesus

Today was awesome! We woke up at 6am this morning. Not by choice. By a screeching prayer blaring through a megaphone. I think it’s…
