Grand Central Terminal

It is hard to visit New York without paying a visit to renowned landmark that is Grand Central Terminal. The majestic building, located on 42nd Street and Park Avenue, is one of the busiest train stations in the world serving over 80 million passengers a year! However, its name causes quite a bit of confusion...Grand Central Station? Grand Central Depot? Grand Central Terminal? Well, at some point, they were all correct. The original building from 1871 was Grand Central Depot. After undergoing renovation and expansion, in 1901 it was renamed Grand Central Station and shortly after, when the new building was unveiled in 1913, it was renamed Grand Central Terminal - so there you have it, Grand Central Terminal it is. Arriving in Grand Central Terminal is an experience - there's something magical about it. The elegant Beaux-arts architecture makes it wholly deserving of its landmark status.

3 Ways To Get Your Wanderlust Fix On A Budget
For people who don't feel right when their feet have been on the same soil for too long, you understand the hold wanderlust has over you. Looking up flight prices, addicted to hostel world, and the map on your wall is marked with every place you NEED to go to has you feeling all types of pent up and claustrophobic when you are home bound. So you also understand the horror of being landlocked not because you lack a sense of adventure, but because money doesn't grow on trees and neither does time off. However, never fear, because there are some ways to get that wander lust fix in-between trips. 1. Plan weekend trips to places you've never been before. I know leaving the country always seems so much better than staying in your own, but you need to toss that notion aside. Each country has something mysterious, amazing, and shockingly new that you are doing yourself an injustice by not traveling it. Start planning mini trips to states, or your countries equivalent of a state, (I'm from the US clearly haha), and go! It costs a lot less plus going somewhere totally new will feel awesome! 2. Do something you've never done before! Make your current home seem more exciting by doing something you have never ever done before. Adventure is everywhere, you just have to be willing to look! Go rock climbing the town over from you or google the nearest sky diving place. Take a hike on a trail you've never been on or even go camping with friends if you are to use to the city landscape. Mixing up life at home by making your own adventures can help you get a little dose of that travel feeling to remind you that the world truly can be yours. 3. Go out to eat at an authentic restaurant you never tried before. Wander lust is all about new experiences, so if you want to go to India, find a truly authentic Indian restaurant to lose yourself in for a meal. Food is one of the greatest parts about travel, so if you are really tight on a budget, one meal could get you your fix. Just make sure you do some research first to make sure your place can really sell you the culture you wished you were submerged in. Just remember, keep saving and take the plunge, travel is always worth it.
Visiting the City of Gunsan in South Korea
Korea has a complicated, heartbreaking history, but in Gunsan the struggle to grapple with the past is especially strong. In cities like Seoul, most of the city was torn apart first by the Japanese then by the Korean war, and then again in the 80s by the desire to "modernize." So when you look at Seoul, you have to actively look for pieces of hardships of the 20th century. Gunsan though was not touched by the Korean war (except for losing their train station) so all of the architecture from the 1920s that the Japanese built while they colonized the country and set up a system of taking all of their food, remains. Gunsan does a fantastic job of showcasing the history while also standing up for Korea and sharing the hardships the citizens went through during this time. It was a great history lesson and I'm thankful that they had so much info in English! First stop was Cafe Teum, an old grainery that turned into a cafe after it was abandoned and in disarry. Then I went to the Hitotsu House, a two story Japanese style house in the center of the Shinheungdong neighborhood where all the rich Japanese people lived before the 1950s. It's very rare to see any Japanese architecture in Korea because it was all torn down by the war or by citizens wanting to tear down what the colonizers left behind. Next was Dongguksa, the only Japanese style temple left in Korea. It was stunning and so peaceful with a little tea house and tons of bamboo. Last up was the rail town and architecture museum which I adored. I learned so much on this trip and I hope you learned something too :) Watch my trip there here:

Making BabyCakes NYC's Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookies
Erin McKenna's BabyCakes bakery in New York's Lower East Side is a much beloved destination among the vegan foodie community - so much so that after much demand, she opened yet another similar and completely successful sister bakeries, simply named Erin McKenna's, is both Los Angeles and Orlando. What makes these baked goods so popular? Well, first off, everything in the bakery is vegan - and that's not all! From cupcakes to waffles to even freshly baked doughnuts, Erin makes sure there's something available for every diet or possible allergy, never using refined sugars, gluten/wheat, soy, dairy, or egg. Somehow, magically, they're amazing! Don't believe me? Her cookbook, BabyCakes Covers The Classics, is a continuous bestseller! When I went to BabyCakes NYC for the first time in 2009, I went for the cupcakes, but ended up falling completely in love with their chocolate chip sandwich cookies. They were two large chocolate chip cookies sandwiching candy-colored frosting in a way that was equally light and indulgent. What I love is that, in this aforementioned cookbook, Erin gave fans the recipe for making this at home. She even stopped off on Martha Stewart's television show to demonstrate! Try this out at home, as this is a terrific recipe on its own or used as a base to freestyle with your own different flavors. The frosting for this one will be vanilla, but in the past, BabyCakes has offered ones with mint flavor or peanut butter inside. This recipe makes 36 cookie sandwiches, so even if you steal a bunch for yourself (which you'll want to), there's still plenty to share! ------------------------------------------------------------------------ BabyCakes NYC's Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookies For the Cookies: 1 cup coconut oil 6 Tablespoons homemade applesauce or store-bought unsweetened applesauce 1 teaspoon salt 2 Tablespoons pure vanilla extract 1 and 1/4 cups evaporated cane juice 2 cups Bob's Red Mill gluten-free all-purpose baking flour 1/4 cup flax meal 1 teaspoon baking sode 1 and 1/2 teaspoons xanthan gum 1 cup vegan chocolate chips For the Frosting: 3/4 cup rice milk or unsweetened soy milk 3/4 cup dry rice milk powder or dry soy milk powder 1 tablespoon coconut flour 1/4 cup agave nectar 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract 1 1/2 cups coconut oil, melted and cooled 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 1. Preheat the oven to 325. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. 2. In a medium bowl, mix together the oil, applesauce, salt, vanilla and cane juice. In another medium bowl, whisk together the flour, flax meal, baking soda and xanthan gum. Using a rubber spatula, carefully add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and stir until a grainy dough is formed. Gently fold in the chocolate chips just until they are evenly distributed throughout the dough. 3. Using a melon baller, scoop the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing the portions 1 inch apart. Gently press each with the heel of your hand to help them spread. Bake the cookies on the center rack for 15 minutes, rotating the sheets 180 degrees after 9 minutes. The finished cookies will be crisp on the edges and soft in the center. 4. Let the cookies stand on the sheets for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack and cool completely before frosting. 5. In the jar of a blender or bowl of a food processor, combine soy milk, soy powder, coconut flour, agave nectar, and vanilla. Blend ingredients for 2 minutes. With machine running, slowly add oil and lemon juice, alternating between the two until both are fully incorporated. 6. Frost the underside of a cookie and sandwich it with the other. Optionally, roll these cookies in sprinkles or miniature chocolate chips!

9 Beautiful Places To Travel Without Leaving The States
Most people get bit by the travel bug at some point in their life. What sucks is that being a world traveler can cost a lot of money. Then you have to take time off of work, which costs you money, fly everywhere which costs you time, and deal with currency exchange which can cost you a ton! But just because you can't fly off to an unknown continent doesn't mean you can't travel! Using budgettravel.com I have chosen for you the most amazing places to visit state side. Now start planning your trip already, you aren't getting any younger! The Grand Canyon Every single person who has ever been to the Grand Canyon always says that their pictures can't even capture its beauty, which is crazy because look how beautiful that picture is! My friend just went there and said that little river flowing through the canyon is actually bigger then a football field....if that gives you any idea how HUGE it actually is. Lake Tahoe In beautiful, warm Cali Tahoe could be another world. The waters are clear, bright blue and anything we all ever crave out of a tropical retreat....except you can still drink the water! Yellow Stone National Park A park full of natural wonder, you can spend weeks just exploring the wildlife. This park is full of beautiful flowers, hot springs and wild animals to make you feel like you have just stepped into a forest untouched by humans (yet still feel safe). Also the park contains the largest active geyser in the world that erupts all the time! Redwood Forest Cali isn't just all beaches and sun bathing. The Redwood forest is one of the most magical places on earth and it will defiantly make you feel small. Just look at the difference between the full gown man and the redwood trees. Now picture that surrounding you. Jackson Hole, Wyoming Breath taking in both the winter and the summer, Jackson Holes Teton Mountain Range makes me want to move there right now! Amazing for skiing and hiking the little town lights up like Time Square in the night. Big Sur, California Driving along the coast of this mountain range gives you all the best views of the beautiful Pacific Ocean! There are places to camp, dine, hike or just stop your car and enjoy the view and the salty breeze on your face. Time Square NYC From someone who lives here, I almost forgot to add in Time Square, however it most defiantly is a sight worth seeing in your life. Especially at night when everything is lit up. Expect to always have your eyes facing towards the sky as the lights and sky scrapers attack your eyes in the best possible way! Then go check out some more of NYC, like central park and governors island. Antelope Canyon Arizona Pretty sure this picture speaks for itself. Walking though these canyons must be jaw dropping, with waterfalls and bright colors and Dr. Seuss like rocks its no surprise people put this on their bucket list! Couples have even gotten their wedding pictures taken in the canyon! The Beartooth Highway in Montana Get in touch with nature walking around these mountains! Full of wild flowers, butterflies and other amazing wildlife it is hard not to get butterflies while looking at this picture! I can't imagine what it would be like in person! Girdwood, Alaska I had to put Alaska on this list because to many people think of this jaw dropping state as unlivable. With perfect snow covered trees and a silence that can actually be heard (weird right?), winter here is almost worth the cold. And in the summer the lakes and rivers are perfect for fishing and swimming and the mostly untouched land really makes you feel like humans haven't ruined everything yet.
