We have a cheerful post today with our phone snapshots from our last travelling adventure in New York City! However, I sadly need to start by saying how deeply sorry that horrible things like the one in Manchester happen, I can’t believe how much less value we might give each other and to ourselves. Hope you & your closest ones are all safe & want to send a big love hug to everyone reading.
Recently, people from New York taught me an incredible lesson in how to be nice to each other, even in the busiest & (sometimes) toughest city in the world. I was fascinated seeing the interaction between people in the city and taking good notes. New York made me feel happy & came back home with more nostalgia than I had anticipated. I guess having (almost) every corner looking like a movie set made part of the charm, while the yummy food in our bellies was in charge of the rest of enchantment, ha!
Let’s review together the wonders New York City worked for us, shall we?
Our hotel, Arlo Soho, had complimentary bikes which we reserved for 1 day because riding around the city (the park or the bridges) was on our bucket list. The bikes were a beauty and worked perfectly well! We took them from the hotel, biked in the city (super thrilling, ohmy) down to the Manhattan bridge, crossed it, visited DUMBO and then went back to the hotel using the Brooklyn bridge. After 15 years without properly riding a bike, I was impressed by how good we both did!
I will enter in more details on the following posts, but food was a special part of our trip. We had a big addresses map compiled from here & there. With this I mean awesome recommendations from blogs like Love Taza (have you seen their NYC videos?) or Tokyobanhbao (and many others!) mixed with mouth-watering finds from Instagram pictures. In the phone pictures we have the tacos from Tacombi and Matcha from Cha Cha Matcha, but more will come, be assured!
Since Dani is quite the coffee enthusiast, we also made a mini coffee tour by visiting three main roasters coffee places from New York. Do you remember I am more tea-oriented? Well, luckily in New York they have an amazing chai tea and lots of coffee places also offered a very well-prepared (not that easy) matcha latte (yay!).
New York, we ♥ you!
Soon we will share the official pics, but what do you think? Should I trying to switch things up a bit this time? Since the Japan posts are so recent I’m afraid you may be tired already with the classic travel posts per day. Let’s see if we can come up with something!
