Hawaii, NYC, and Disney travel and dining experiences
Welcome to my blog! My name is Su-Lynn and I love to travel and try new cuisines. I live in the NY/NJ Tri-state area with my wonderful husband, Steve. I've had a love affair with Hawaii since I was young. Steve and I have been traveling to Hawaii every year since 2009 (sometimes twice a year if we are lucky).
This blog houses all my trip reports and travel experiences from around the world, as well as detail future trip planning...along with doses of yummy food from NYC, Hawaii, and beyond (including Disney World!). Hawaii is a wonderful place to visit, filled with amazing food, scenery, beaches, history, and lots of friendly ALOHA. Although I do miss it when I'm not there, I always try to find a little ALOHA in my daily life. Thanks for reading! Click here to read more about this blog and me.
If you're planning a trip to Hawaii, hopefully my blog will provide some useful information but please feel free to drop me a line to ask a question or two . I can't promise I will have the right answer, but I'll let you know what I think it should be. Aloha! :)
My hometown, NYC, is famous for it’s street fairs which run all over the city from spring to fall, but none is more famous or more popular than the San Gennaro festival which takes place in Little Italy beginning in September. For many, it’s a sign that fall is almost here! For me, it’s getting together with good friends and partaking in some of NYC’s finest Italian street food. Here’s some iphone photos from last night.
I’ll start with my eating buddy, Michael James. Isn’t he just the cutest?!? And look at those eyes…heartbreaker. He’s my friend, Katie’s son.

The closed-off streets were packed with people and vendors
Here are just a few of the foods we saw and ate. Sorry some pics are blurry. It was dark and I was hungry!
Delicious thin-crust pizzas
We got the tie dye pizza, with pesto, tomato and vodka sauces
and here’s the tabasco tots which we devoured, but not because they were really good (they were not as crunchy as I’d like), but there were 8 of us, and we were hungry!
you can even find lobster!
I was on a mission however, to find some Italian sausage…but not just any Italian sausage…it’s topped with brocolli rabe. We cound it at the Gi Gi’s Italian food stall. Mmmm! Thanks Nina for the discovery!

you can top your sausage with anything…we chose traditional sausage and peppers, a long hot pepper (pictured on the shelf below the rabe) and of course the broccolli rabe.

the finished creation…doesn’t it look yum? It was hard to eat because we kept dropping bits of onion and pepper everywhere, and the rabe was cut in such large pieces…but it was worth it!
