Remember that time when I said I was going to write four posts a week? Well guess what? I got a Full Time job with Koppert Cress USA as Head of Marketing!

My day to day schedule has been really full and exciting so I’m going to recommit and post every Tuesday (Travel Tuesday) / Friday (Feature Friday). So for the last Wellness Wednesday I thought I’d talk about my trip to Rockaway Beach!

First of all, let it be known that Rockaway Beach is FREE. I repeat, you do not have to pay for the beach! Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, I am happy to report that my trip to Rockaway was breathtaking- from the scent of sweet honey to the smell of the ocean, I had a blast tasting raw honey from all over NY at the Honesy Festival with two of my fellow Natural Gourmet alums!

HONEY FESTIVAL: I tasted hot honey, honey soda, propolis (alcoholic honey), bee pollen, honeycomb, honey icepops, honey elixir, honey EVERYTHING. Don’t believe me? Take a look.

ROCKAWAY TACO: I even went to the famed Rockaway Taco for lunch and loved my plantains. Aside from the plaintains, the seating area was another highlight of the lunch (unfortunately the tacos were good but not amazeballs).

OVERALL: My first visit to Rockaway was a success. I almost convinced myself to move there… I even tried to bribe a local who works on Pier 97 to text me about any foreclosurers! Can’t wait to back next season, see ya later Rockaway!
