New York City is our second home! We went to early elementary school in the city and forever feel like this is our other home. An added benefit is some of our closest friends have ended up living (or never left) the city. Its always a whirlwind adventure with not much sleep for always very energizing.
It took this trip to NYC to go to our first SoulCycle class. Our dearest friend Jenni is a borderline expert and Mica and I ended up doing 2 classes! We did a Taylor Swift theme class, then found out about a Beyonce class happening the next morning and it just felt wrong not to participate. I get what all the hype is about now! Those endorphins get going and you feel so dam good! I have also never really worked out while on vacation. I have always been more of the indulgent type of traveller, (booze, big long meals, etc.). But I have to say it was very nice to incorporate a little excerise into the vacation.
We ventrured to Brooklyn one early evening. Talk out change! I mean We didn't live there too long ago but it might as well been the dark ages! We met out dear Friends Parsley and Sue for a drink on the roof of the Wythe Hotel. A bottle of rose and some cheese as the sun set makes for a perfect afternoon.
Next up we had a lovely dinner at DOC a few blocks away. Parsely, Mica and I all studied abroad in Florence Italy for a year, so our happy place always involves Italian food and lots of wine.
Next up (because New York summer evenings should never end) we went to Hotel Delmano. Our friend Julia came to meet all of us we all enjoyed fancy cocktails.
