Last day of New York 22-23.09

My last day in the City I spent shopping. I was looking for make-up, shirts and accessories. The requested make-up was sold out, unfortunately. But the shirts and a pair of shoes for me was, by the end of the day, sent to Sweden using USPS. It’s amazing how expensive mail can be. Sending one […]

Guggenheim and a cold coming up 18.09

On monday I headed to my last must-see here in New York; The Guggenheim. Like Coney, it is also one of those things I never got around to during my previous visits. This time however I had a bit of bad luck. Half the museum was closed for preparation of a new exhibit. But I […]

Brooklyn and Coney 17.09

On sunday morning I headed over to Williamsburg in Brooklyn for brunch. I walked Bedford Avenue, the heart of Williamsburg and looked in the windows of many many pretty boutiques along the street. Since it was a little bit too early on a sunday for shopping (it was 10am) I sat down in one of […]

Brooklyn Botanic Garden and yoga 16.09

One of the many must-see-and-do during my time here in the big apple have been Brooklyn Botanic Garden. I have seen so many beautiful pictures and photos of this place, that I had to see it for myself. The fact that I’m raised always visiting the Botanical Gardens of different cities we’ve visited only enhanced […]

Bed rest

I’ve been bound to my bed for two days now. Started feeling a little weird on monday, so after having been on my last must-see I headed for the grocery store and then home. During the night I began getting a sore throat, my head was pounding and my muscels didn’t really want to even […]

NYFD and School of Rock 15.09

On friday we had no clouds, no wind but a lot of sun. So, I put on my sneakers and started to walk the streets of lower manhattan in search of the amazingly beautiful fire stations of New York. Despite having been here for two weeks I still get fooled by the map when it […]

Wine tasting 14.09

After a day at the museum, it was time for some wine. After getting recommendations on where to learn more about wine, I booked a class ”The elements of wine” at the Astor Center. For two hours I got to sip through one prosecco, 2 whites, 3 reds, 1 sweet and 1 rosé, served with […]

American Museum of Natural History 14.09

  I got a tip from one of my roomies to visit the Museum of Natural History. He told me they had spectacular exhibits on show right now. As the Guggenheim was closed on thursdays (realized this outside the museum), I decided to walk across central park and instead target this museum as my to-do […]

Ivan Ramen 13.09

For dinner after my visit to MOMA and a skype date with A, I had reserved a seat at Ivan Ramen.   One of my interests in life is good food. I enjoy fine dining very much and love to explore new dishes and ways of making and serving food. It amazes me that cheese […]

MOMA 13.09

Finally, after many years of attempts I have finally made it to the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA)! And it was well worth the wait. They had a great exhibition on the architect Frank Lloyd Wright on display right now, where his drawings in different editions were on show. For those who might not have […]
