travel diary: getting lost new york | nyc, usa

By February 19, 2014 travel, travel diary, usa

I don’t think I can ever forget what happened in New York, but the fun doesn’t end there.

The morning after we wandered around town to enjoy the beautiful sunshine… I just loved getting lost in the city with no real aim in mind…

I’m wearing a vintage dress – but here’s a cute dress that’s similar.

Although all this walking tends to make you a bit hungry, so we decided to head to Eataly for lunch.

If you’ve never heard of it, you’re in for a treat.

It’s this amazing Italian eating extravaganza with a range of restaurant, bakery, bar and deli options all under one roof. Not to mention the gelateria (which often has a line to battle the Empire State Building) and isle upon isles of imported italian food stuffs.

You basically choose a station, order up big and hope to the food gods that you can get a table. We luckily snagged a table in one of the restaurant style stations and quickly ordered a range of goodies. This is the Hazlenut Ravioli… sorry for the grainy iPhone pic..

 And the Rabbit Ragu Gnocchi…

Of course we ordered more but they were gone too quick for me to take pics.

Thoroughly stuffed we headed off for some site seeing. Given the gorgeous weather, we opted for Top of the Rock.

From up here you can enjoy sweeping views of the whole city… From this high up, NYC looked like a miniature toy city…

And it’s even more gorgeous as the sun goes down. The city lights up and starts to twinkle as the city transitions from day to night…

The next day we woke to a fairly gloomy and drizzly day. Perfect weather for a trip to the Moma.

Here you’ll find a range of art, sculpture and design works. Here are a few of my fav pieces…

After a few glorious hours lost in the museum, we spent the afternoon cheese and wine tasting at Artisinal Bistro.

This cute french bistro serves brunch, lunch and dinner. However we were there for the amazing cheese and wine flights, a perfect activity for waiting out the rain… again sorry for grainy iPhone pics…

A bit giddy and full, we strolled home through the gloomy fog, which is quite pretty when lit up by the lights of the city…
