Outdoor Adventures


Situated at the north end of The High Line in New York City is Vessel , dubbed Shawarma by some locals – a structure and landmark that opened March 2019 as part of the Hudson Yards Redevelopment Project. Its current name Vessel is temporary while they figure out what to call it permanently. However, I have to say that Shawarma is a pretty good suggestion. It resembles something in between the cone-shaped meat, popular on street carts and a glistening honeycomb.

Floating just off the coast of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard is an island accessible by sea or air. Skip the flight and catch a ferry, the boat, if you are a local. On the water, you will hear the boat horns, breath in the salty air, feel the ocean breeze on your face, and enjoy a classic New England seascape. It’s an enchanting sensory experience to get you pumped about arriving on this famed summer island.

Cruising along a quiet road on Kauai’s west side, I’m offered a glimpse into the Hawaiian countryside. Filling my view are green rolling hills, cows grazing, and papaya fields. Sparsely developed, this is what I imagine more of Hawaii used to look like before its booming tourist industry kicked in. It pleases me to see there is a quieter side to this island paradise.
