top of the rock

February 27, 2014 | 0 SHARES

Three levels of absolute breathtaking views. Welcome to the Top of the Rock. It’s $27 to get access to the three levels. There’s even a section to sit and relax and charge your phone. Now that I’ve visited, and if I had to choose, I’d choose this over the Empire State Building observatory any day. (If you want to compare views, head over here.)

If you want to get both the day and night views, head on over about an hour before sunset. Stay for around two hours and you’ll get to experience both. I went on a weekday afternoon and the line was around 10 minutes (including security check).

    I just found out about your blog and it made my heart cry. You inspired me so much and thank you for that.


It is a miracle if you can find true friends, and it is a miracle if you have enough food to eat, and it is a miracle if you get to spend your days and evenings doing whatever it is you like to do.

You are living a life full of miracles. Perspective is everything. ??
Hardships only prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny. Always keep your head up.

And through this, I grew to know her soul.

Never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. And if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don't throw it away.
Eat to nourish the body. Love to feed the soul. ?
Artists, thank you for your struggle.

Take every chance.
Drop every fear.
Be still.
And watch the world work magic around you.

In a world so obsessed with staying young, I welcome age as I welcome wisdom. Passion gained, dreams chased, love lost, hope found and memories stored in a mind guided by my heart.

Know that your scars are what make you beautiful. To me, you are perfect.

Your life is your message to the world. Make sure it's inspiring. ?
Best cannolo I've ever tasted from the Testacchio district in #Rome, Italy.

1. Always buy a cannolo from a Sicilian.

2. It should never be pre-filled before you order.

3. It should be filled (and dipped if you want) on the spot. This will keep it from getting soggy.

4. You will never be able to have just one. -_-
