the adventures of yoshi

my first real experience at Coney Island…

Posted in Travel and Trips by yoshi on July 2, 2011

The last time we went to coney Island, we were blocked by the damn Mermaid Parade. This time, however, I was determined to play some games and ride some rides.

Now, I’m not a huge fan of rides, but the bf wouldn’t let me leave without riding the Cyclone. Before mustering up the nerves to ride that, I made him go on a kiddie ride with me called the Tickler lmaoooo. Man, that was pretty scare too!

Finally made our way through to the Cyclone and I literally went into meditation mode. My palms got all sweaty, but I was excited to cross something off my bucketlist. We hopped on and the first drop was the highest of course, and DAMN, I remembered why I hated rides – I’m too fucking small to have the guard railing thing secure me in tight, I had AT LEAST a 4 inch gap between me and that thing. So yea, I felt like I was going to fly right off the seat =X

Anyway, we also bumped into my good friend Aly!!! ❤ Didn’t even know he was in town!

After the rides we played games, won a few things, ate at Nathan’s, and took at nap on the beach… I had a BUH-LAST! Can’t wait to go again, enjoy the pics!

    I’m just here to say that I really like your blog, and plus your cute so that helps (no disrespect to the BF). I’m a NYC slicker (Brooklyn) born-n-raised and I felt like a tourist when I came to your blog. I’m a Entertainment journalist for “” and I’m just starting to get out in the social scene of NY. Aight, just stopping by to say KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!
