It’s up to you…..New York

Hello from New York!!!!

williamsburg new york

I should’ve put more thought in to bringing warm clothes but after ‘The beast from the East’, I was way too excited about the hot Antiguan weather we were off to first, that I didn’t think too much about the New York ending of our trip 😦 . So, here I am freezing cold because the snow has returned here.

Our first stop was somewhere Richard has wanted to stay for ages although he wouldn’t tell me the price! It was the very cool ‘Wythe Hotel‘ in the heart of Williamsburg, a place after visiting for the first time a few years ago, I really wanted to check out more.

After a complimentory drink on the epic rooftop with views over Manhattan, we grabbed ribs and potato salad with pickles at a place around the corner ‘Fetti Sau‘, delish!

Then it was on to Rocka Rolla, a dukebox hangout that was showing an old ‘Rolling Stones’ tour performance. Our second free drink of the night was here… a whiskey!

Today is Wedsnesday and I am writing this from our second New York hotel, ‘The Freehand‘. It has fabulous plant decor against dark wood and turquoise walls. Can I also mention that we went to a basketball game last night which was chaos and here in the bar area afterwards, I saw Zac Efron (or an epic look-a-like) and in the Wythe hotel we saw Sandy ( the dad from the OC) at breakfast – I thought it was just an LA thing seeing these stars.

Richard has been working today so I did a bit more exploring of the Broadway and East village shops and cafes. I walked it all, it’s smaller than you think. Last time I found a few vintage stores in East village and today I picked up a cute canary yellow knitted cardigan – much needed in 3 degrees. I also went to ‘Cha Cha Macha’ for their match chai which was delish and the pink interior was beaut!

I will also just mention my lonely brunch today. It was at ‘Bluestone Lane‘ and I picked the yummy sweet potato humus on toast with a poached egg. However, it was a small portion so naturally I was still hungry. Later on, I went to grab some pizza and after waiting ages for the card machine, a delightful stranger stepped forward and bought my it for me! Loving New York!

On the Thursday night, I dragged Richard to a place I’d already been to on my 29th birthday were Alexa Chung happened to be drinking. It’s a little bar called ‘Tomkins Square’ next door to the fun venue Niagara. We also visited a very cool, dimly lit bar up a lot of stairs called KGB, who had live ukulele playing. We ate at ‘Bareburger’ and I am now obsessed with turkey burgers and pickles.

On the last day we had an epically (is that even a word?) beautiful brunch at ‘Citizens of Cheslea’. It was so colourful as I had their beetroot humus with perfect poached egg and smoked salmon. Richard had duck bacon on sourdough. Next, we actually walked form Chelsea up to Times Square and then strolled central park.

Then it on to the flight home. The guy infront of us snored for the whole 7 hours! The air stewrads were pissing themselves laughing especially when I asked for a bottle of wine. I wish I could sleep like that!

And, I need to end with sad news. I came home to be told one of our collegues has taken his own life. This is far too common in Veterinary Medicine maybe because of stuff we will never know but, mayeb because of the type of persons we all are or the demanding emotional work itself or also, because we are taught that death is an option …and a kind one at that. I don’t know and nobody ever really will but it has been a tragedy. I didn’t want ot write a happy blog about our travels when we are all trying to deal with this at the same time. IΒ have no other words only RIP mate
