Sometimes the smallest adventures are the most exciting ones! One evening after grabbing some dinner, my sister and I decided to take an evening train from Manhattan into Brooklyn and do what we do best… just get lost. Is there any better way to travel? We’ve had so many adventures in the past where we just got lost in a new place (remember that time we lost the Eiffel Tower in Paris?), well New York City was no different! This time, it was wandering through Brooklyn at night!
Off we went, into the night to find… High Street Brooklyn Bridge Station. The New York subway in itself is an adventure – a grimy, smelly adventure, but still an adventure.
Eventually we made it to Brooklyn. We wandered pretty streets with no GPS. Is there any better way to get lost? (Always have a map handy, though).
Saw sparkling lights almost everywhere – from the waters edge to hidden parks, the iconic Brooklyn skyline is hard to miss.
Got a tab bit lost. That’s okay, though.
We found that oh so gorgeous New York skyline just before an unexpected downpour! With no umbrellas we were left drenched on the streets of Brooklyn! We contemplated getting pizza or even a coffee but we were soaked to the core! Our souls were frozen.
We decided to call it a night and run back to the subway – in the rain! Why didn’t we just call an Uber?
Honestly though, can anyone actually think straight when you’ve got raindrops in your face and you’re laughing so hard that the tears get mixed with the rain?
Yep it’s always an adventure with us… even on those quiet pretty (cold and wet) Brooklyn nights.
