NYC –Olympics – Grand Central Terminal –Trains
A few days ago, on my walk, I had the chance to find my “younger self” by going to the Grand Central Terminal. The terminal in itself is a wondrous place to visit and is full of hidden treasures. On this day, two added attractions were available to visit – The U.S Olympic Committee’s Road to Sochi Tour and a model train display at the Transit Museum.
While I rarely share my own image in my Blogs I make an exception for this one. I had never met a gold medal Olympian. Also, I was able to play in several simulated Olympic events – what fun!
I will let the following photographs speak to the events of the day…

All in all it felt nice to feel like I was a kid again…. happy walking!
