Pho in London

After four nights in London, we decided to visit Chinatown and have a bowl of our favorite Vietnamese food, Pho! I wish I can give you a sample so that you can understand how delicious it was. If you are in London, I recommend that you stop by for a bowl of Pho in Chinatown!

The iconic British telephone booth! My boyfriend is so photogenic, can you tell? 

London was so much fun! Although it is different it reminded me so much of New York City, lights, crowd and plenty of things to do. One thing that I found very pleasant was that it was very easy to get around by transportation. We were very lucky that our travel to the city from our hotel was a piece of cake. Overall, I would recommend London as a city to hit if you are traveling due to its rich history and architecture. Another thing, Buckingham palace is walking distance to Winter Wonderland (at the right time of the year of course) London eye, Big Ben, Sea Life London Aquarium (if you are traveling with kids) and plenty of shops for souvenir shopping, so no worries!

Macombs Dam Park

I enjoy this park because the track and field is honored after a remarkable man, Joseph Yancey. Originally from Harlem, he was known as a star athlete who trained many athletes across the country. Yancey dedicated most of his time to train and develop other athletes. However, the same dedication led Joseph to create his own track club (New York Pioneers Track and Field). A track club that was one of the few places that minority athletes were able to train.

Honoring Joseph Yancey, the city named the track and field within Macombs Dam Park after him.

Macombs Dam Park includes of:

  • Track field
  • Soccer field
  • Football field
  • Tennis court
  • Basketball courts
  • Calisthenic workout section
  • Children’s playground
  • Plenty of benches around the park

Personally, I love coming here on a sunny afternoon for a walk around the track field. All you need is music and comfortable sneakers! Aim for at least 6 laps of walking, stretch before and after.

The park is easily accessible as it is located across the street from Yankee Stadium, come on down for a workout, picnic, or even a kids play date!
