Only less than two weeks ago, summer said good bye to us and where would it be best to spend the last hot days of the year? Of course, the ocean, the beach, in the sands, somewhere far from the city. It might not be the first thing on your mind when you think of New York, but indeed, everyone can escape the loud city once in a while. Especially when you're here in the summer, you should check out the different beaches. If you're not by car, as everyone else in this city, you can easily take the A-Train to its far far end. Not Harlem, but Far Rockaway! It takes about 45minutes (depending on where you hop into the train) to get there. It was incredible sitting in the train and riding towards nothingness.. no skyscrapers, no cabs, no houses.. only sand and water.
Since my friend and I are in the middle of our semester and school in the U.S. is a bit different compared to Germany, we took our studies outside and enjoyed the afternoon at the ocean. Really miss the warm days and need to adjust to the rain and the cold weather out here now. Have been sick and drinking tons of tea and hot soup all week now!
So take care guys!
Stay warm & cozy ;)
