NEXT TRIP IN 1 DAYS: NEW YORK
No time to spare!
I'm about ready to head out. So very much running around, chores and errands this week. And the one chore that I still have yet to accomplish is our packing. UGH
I don't ever put it off this late and now I have no choice but to bang it out today on top of all the very many other things that I have to do.
I've obviously have to figure out our packing for the bigger trip (Europe) that is right around the bend.
The saying "too much to do, too little time" is hitting close to home for me this week.
Yes folks, that right there is how I left off. I seriously had to run and I was of course gonna bop back on here later to continue... HOWEVER as I was on my way to my appointment I received a call. I listened to the voice mail to find out that my appointment had to be canceled and rebooked. So now I rescheduled it for a few hours later - which means that I now need to head to the stables first and then make it to my appointment. Today there isn't a moment to spare!
While I am waiting on Cosette (she's not ready to go, since us leaving for the stables was a last minute schedule change), I will tell you about one of the final things I needed to book for our Poland/Germany and more trip - tickets for The Reichstag Dome in Berlin.
Tickets only become available for the month and the following month. So although I plan on going on June 1st, I needed to wait until May 1st for the window to be available. And guess what, with all of the hectic-ness of this week - I nearly forgot!!!
But luckily I got on there yesterday and our reservation has now been confirmed. Whew!
On another note...
"We're getting wheelie excited!" (bike.nyc)
I've gotta get my butt over to New York!
Lastly let's not forget that it's Thursday (I really can't keep up with the days this week), and I wanted to throw in a little TBT for ya. I figured throwing it back to last year in Hawaii would work and with it being Bike Month and all show you just how gorgeous cycling can be!

And before I sign off don't forget to bop over to Elisas side and read about some of the bike paths right there on Long Island!
That's all folks! -Travelin' Tanya

8 Bike Paths on Long Island
Wow Guys, what a busy week this has been. I've been writing my little butt off all week!
I have some great articles to bring you in the coming weeks, which I'm so excited about!
A few of these will also be featured in ThisIsTheBronx.info as well, since a few of these are about Bronx destinations.
Biking focused trips make for great travel! However, if you are looking for some biking fun closer to home or on your next trip to Long Island, there are numerous pedal-worthy trails in Nassau and Suffolk county state parks.
Check out these 8, if you are looking to pedal it out on Long Island!
8 Bike Paths on
Cathedral Pines County Park, Middle Island
This 6-mile Long Island bike path is clad with beautiful tall trees surrounding bikers as they bike along a dirt path.
Caumsett State Park, Lloyd Harbor
This state park contains 3 miles of paths and trails perfect for biking between the Dairy Barn and Marshall Field Estate.
Eisenhower Park, East Meadow
The flat loop path within the park is about 5 miles long near Exit 4 on the Meadowbrook Parkway.
Heckscher State Park, East Islip
With more than 20 miles of trails, one of the best biking trail is about 5 miles long going north along Connetquot River into Central Islip to Central Suffolk bike path.
Hither Woods State Park, Montauk
The biking trail here is a great option for advanced bikers, with challenging rides along hills for a real workout!
The Bethpage Bikeway, Bethpage State Park, Bethpage
There area several options here, both for beginners as well as a for advanced mouton bikers, with a more intense off-road path.
The Jones Beach Bikeway, Jones Beach State Park, Wantaugh
If you love water views, than the 5-mile+ long asphalt path along the Wantagh Parkway from Cedar Creek Park to Jones Beach is for you. Scenic views of the water are guaranteed the further East you bike.
Trail View State Park, Woodbury
The park is a favorite spot for birdwatchers year-round, most especially--because it lies on the Atlantic flyway--during the spring and fall bird migrations and has designated bike paths as well.
So glad it's Thursday and I only have two more days to our little jaunt out to Port Jefferson!
