A few weeks ago I took the 3+ hour drive from my apartment to see a friend in Buffalo, NY.
I took the back way into the city so I could avoid tolls, and it was BEAUTIFUL. Country roads, wind mills, cows and horses... it was so joyous. I stopped along the road 5 times to take photos; I was so happy!
This road trip was actually to see my favorite artist/rapper, NF, at Town Ballroom in the city. This guy gives his all and puts on an epic show every time! His music is REAL and personal. This was my fourth NF concert and I hope I get to see him more!
Check him out @nfrealmusic.
It was just cool to break from the norm and take a road trip. Do it whenever you can! It was super peaceful just listening to music and taking everything in on the drive. It was actually the farthest I have driven by myself so far!
It's cool seeing the world of a friend that lives far away- especially in a place that's said to be one of the best cities to live in America!
Moving on to food, Buffalo is KNOWN for its incredible food- starting with Buffalo wings, which originated right here! Obviously. Living amongst many bars in the town I call home, I definitely have grown to love my chicken wings. We stopped at Duff's, which is the cutest little place! Both of us got fries and we could've fed my whole family.
The wings there were so good, and HOT!
On my way out of town we stopped at Paula's Donuts for breakfast. BEST. BAGEL. EVER. As usual, I got really excited! I bought a half dozen donuts for the road and when I got home..... I bit into the softest, sweetest chocolate glazed donut I have ever tasted. I would seriously drive to Buffalo at a moment's notice just to go to Paula's! And BTW... you can custom order a HUGE donut anytime you want! They are bigger than your head, from what I've seen!
So that's my trip! Thanks Buffalo, I will be back!
