Ask an old woman

When I travel, solo, and I'm lost or not sure of directions, I always ask an old woman for help.  My last trip to NYC I asked for help three times.

The first two times there was someone my age or older to ask.  Where's the closest subway station?  Which side of the platform do I stand on to get to Midtown?  No problem, and I received good help.

The third time, there was no one close to my age, so I asked a young woman.  Honestly she gave me the most complicated directions.  I'm pretty sure I would have ended up in Brooklyn if I followed her directions  Instead I stood in the subway station under the Rockafeller Plaza and figured it out for myself.  Truthfully, it took me a long time, but I figured it out.

These photos have nothing to do with asking for directions.  I took them when I walked across the Brooklyn Bridge.  There was massive construction going on in the center of the bridge, so I really couldn't see much.  It was a good walk, but I wish I'd done it years ago, when I was younger, and there was no construction.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing my life with me,

  1. Wonderful shots of New York, I really must get up there sometime. I don't like getting lost so hubby bought me a new phone with GPS. I love it! BUT, it doesn't work when you're in the mountains of Pennsylvania, and I daresay a few other places :)
