From Coney Island to Costa Rica!

Tomorrow Dave and I are off to Costa Rica for 8 days! I cannot wait! We’re doing all sorts of awesome stuff like white water rafting, kayakin and ziplining through the jungle tree tops. (I am terrified of 2 out of 3 of these activities, FYI. But I’m excited to do them anyway!)

But before we head off to Costa Rica, we spent Friday at Coney Island, crossing yet another item off the NYC-to-See list. YAY!

We ate at THE ORIGINAL Nathan’s Famous Hotdogs:

Dave ate half of his before I could take a picture.

And we walked around the boardwalk:

And of course, rode the Cyclone:

The Cyclone KICKS YOUR ASS!! The first drop is so steep, I nearly flew out of my seat!! Good thing I was wedged next to Dave so I couldn’t really go anywhere. But it was SO scary since it’s all old and rickety, and SO much fun!

Well that’s it from me. I’ll return next week with tons of pictures and stories from Costa Rica! Hope everyone has a good week!!

    It's funny. My grandparents live in the middle of the boardwalk, by the aquarium – I grew up on that boardwalk and Coney Island. We used to play in the kiddie park since I saw my grandparents basically on a weekly basis, since we lived ten minutes away or so.

    Glad you enjoyed Coney Island. ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy Costa Rica!

  6. How so much fun in Costa Rica!! Coney Island is pretty fun too! Although haven't been since I was very little!

  8. The cyclone looks super fun, although I'm sure if I face one I may have just refuse and watch other people scream. Such wimp :p. Have fun in Costa Rica!
