I’ve really had a hard time getting a new post done for the blog, in fact I haven’t been able to do pretty much anything since the horrible events happened in Barcelona. First of all, thanks to everyone who dropped a few words on our social media or called asking how our family was, thanks! When it happened, my family from Madrid was visiting and we were inside the Science Museum, which gave us a safe environment much needed at that time. I also would like to give my condolences to the victims and hurt people from more than 32 different nationalities.
A girl from Barcelona that I follow in Instagram mentioned she felt like being under anaesthesia effect, and it really stroke me how right this description was spot-on also for me. Thus I try to repeat to myself that we should be strong, we should not be afraid, because that’s exactly what they are looking for, and we should love each other more than ever. But it’s hard.
I’ve been struggling to decide if I should change the post or even not post at all, but for the sake of not letting them interfere with our lives, let’s share what I had planned for this Monday and keep going on.
Here it is a very photogenic walking route we did while in New York, from the Village to The High Line. Would you walk the streets with me?
The walk started on our hotel in the Soho, we walked towards the Village, and admired the calm residential streets while wondering if we were going to stumble upon Annie Leivobitz or Sofia Coppola. Just kidding! Sometime ago I read, though, that Annie bought all the apartments from one of these houses (a townhouse is the appropriate word I think, please correct!) in the west village, but that she was selling it like for 20M $ (wowzies!).
Once in Chelsea we headed towards the famous Chelsea Market, that is not like a traditional market but rather a building gathering together some great eating spots, like the Tacos n.1 or the Lobster’s place. We went for a Korean snack at Mokbar, amazing bite! We are planning on having a post with our favorite addresses, so we’ll get into more details about all our food delightful choices in that one.
The High Line
We ended up our quite long walk in the High Line, an old railway converted into a public garden up high, where as a bonus you have views of the streets in the neighborhood. We read that it’s quite popular now, but were lucky to find it not too crowded, it was a very charming experience for us. If you like to admire the streets & buildings this is the place for you, as the greenery is only a complement to this.
Thanks for following along! Our late summer vacations are fast approaching, if you want to keep tuned we are going to share them on our stories on Instagram, we hope to see you there and let us know what do you think about our silly clips! Big hug.
