Finally visited 'The Cloisters' in NY!

From time to time, it is nice to "escape" from the rumble of the city and escape into the wilderness. However, for those who do not own a car, it's rather difficult so Fort Tryon Park and The Cloisters are easy destinations to escape to and all you need to do is hop on the A train, take a short nap without getting pick pocketed, and get off on one of the last stops! Bring a picnic if it's super nice out.

Stared at this little guy for 5 minutes

I didn't really LOVE the Cloisters museum because that Medieval stuff is freaky and too religious for me but Tryon Park and the gardens were definitely relaxing. It was nice to sit by one of the cloistered gardens and just stare at something for an hour...a bumblee bee perhaps which is a rare sighting in the city of NY!
