A couple of weeks ago we spent a few days of peace (well, as peaceful as you can get when travelling with a toddler and a baby) and rock & roll in Woodstock, where the music festival famously didn’t take place. The legend says the original Woodstock Festival’s organisers wanted to plan their concert there; however, the town turned down their permit, and the “Woodstock” Festival was actually held almost 60 miles away in the town of Bethel. I feel […]
A couple weekends ago, the three of us got a little getaway, finally getting some much needed beach time. It was our first time to Montauk and it was so charming and pretty. The town has endless cafes, cute shops, flowers and fruit stands. We stayed right on the beach and hardly anyone was there. It was so quiet and relaxing. We don’t often get a chance to slow down our days, enjoy time as a family, be more present, listen to each other. […]
If you follow me along on Instagram you might have seen some balloons snaps from when we went to the Park Avenue Armory on Sunday to check out British Artist Martin Creed’s retrospective exhibition called “The Back Door”. We spent the majority of our time in the balloon room, because V could not get enough of it! Elsewhere in the exhibition, we encountered films of people vomiting, spitting yogurt and defecating, along an array of metronomes ticking at different speeds, and a […]
Wait, there’s more NYC Polaroid love! GP and I have also been listening to Vampire Weekend’s new song, Step, since it came out a few days ago. I’m especially in love with the music video since – guess what?! – it’s all about New York City and we can’t wait to be back!
Our little Big Apple series now plunges into its final stretch. Thanks for following along! (And you can also read all our New York posts from the beginning here). Looking through these photos definitely validates my love for this fascinating city. It may get ridiculously freezing there when it’s cold, or so humid your face is falling off when it’s hot… It may have excessive amounts of rubbish and rats everywhere (Oh rats… I really hate rats), but this place […]
My New York posts wouldn’t be complete without views from the Empire State Building. The incredible twinkling sea of the Manhattan lights. The Brooklyn Bridge all lit up. And the Statue of Liberty in the distance… In the movie An Affair to Remember, Deborah Kerr says to Garry Grant: “It’s the nearest thing to heaven we have in New York.” And it’s so true! (If heaven was very cold and very windy though). Absolutely amazing!
I wish we were still there, in this big wild city. I’ve got to be honest though, and tell you I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with big city life. There’s always this internal dialogue going on in my head: – “Art galleries and shops, concerts and shows. I love it!” – Eve – “Too much traffic. Too much crowd. I hate it!” – Eve’s evil twin But New York isn’t somewhere you can just come and visit and leave. […]
