Steve's STORY: Vacation by the Numbers
We are finally back home after gallivanting along the East Coast for two weeks. By the numbers:
199.9K Steps I logged during our two week trip.
1,000 Miles driven.
45 Minutes it took to find parking in Brooklyn…TWICE.
16 Relatives with whom we shared stories and meals along the way!
8 States visited plus DC.
5 Ice Cream visits, including fresh, rolled ice cream in Philly, scrumptious liquid nitrogen-frozen ice cream in VA, and Nutter’s huge portions for about $2.50 in WV.
4 Amazing performances seen (my son’s vocal performance, my daughter’s off-Broadway show “A Strange Loop”, “Frozen”, and a new play at the Contemporary American Theater Festival, a summer stock event in WV.
3 Universities toured as my son begins his college search.
3 Amazing Art Galleries/Museums visited including Artec (DC), Philadelphia Museum of Art, and American Visionary Art Museum (Baltimore)
2 BIG BUS tours during the heat wave – frying on the top in Philly and baking on the bottom in DC.
1 Number of tumbles while running the streets of Philly, scraping up 1 knee, 1 elbow, and 1 cell phone (which thankfully took the worst of it).
0 pieces of gum chewed. For those who know me, that's close to a miracle. My chewing gum addiction had reached 20 pieces a day. But after kicking so many habits over the past several years, I was determined to break this one as well...and besides, I forgot to stock up before the trip so I had a head start!
We made lots of memories and are exhausted. I’m quickly getting back into routines of exercise, writing, reading, and resting.
