We spent a long Christmas break in New York, staying in an amazing AirBnb apartment in the city’s West Village. Jamie had been there before, about 10 years ago, but it was my first visit. And predictably, it was love at first sight! Though the weather was refreshingly crisp (read: bitterly cold) the city had everything we wanted and more. We were truly spoiled for choice in the West Village when it came to choosing restaurants and bars to try. Museums, attractions and everything else we needed was just a short subway ride away. Among the highlights of our two weeks in New York were a performance of the youth orchestra at Carnegie Hall, cocktails at the awesome Little Branch, whiskey tastings at Highlands and a touristy-but-still-awesome horse and carriage ride through Central Park. It was such a fabulous, indulgent holiday, and I can’t wait to go back again soon!
Maybe it’s a little premature, but this summer in San Francisco is shaping up to be pretty darn perfect. The weather continues to be sublime, even with the afternoon fog rolling in. We had a stellar 4th of July with amazing friends and rooftop fireworks. Family and friends have visited, including Jamie’s mum last week, honeymooning pals this week, and another friend in town from tomorrow! After that, I head back to Brisbane for ten days to see my family before college starts back in August. But, I digress. Thankfully, with so much time off at the moment, I’ve been out and about taking lots of photos. Here’s a few from the last couple of weeks – enjoy!
