New York: my first time

Start spreading the news, I’m leaving today: I want to be a part of it, New York, New York (Thanks to Frank Sinatra, John Kander and Fred Ebb for the incipit!)

This year I’m traveling mainly chasing friends who are getting married around the world! But I have to admit it’s not too bad in the end.

I’ve got a new destination for this december, but unfortunately I cannot spend all my holidays there. It will be

my 75 hours in New York!

75 hours in New-York
I’ve never been in NYC and I’m so excited. There will be so much to do so quickly. I could plan every little detail before to leave, but there will be a little lack in charm of discovery. But on the other side no plans mean go round and round, no destination and the risk to loose too much. I’m struggling!!

I was having a look at what to do in NY and I had the impression of having been there before, like something I already know. I mean, I grew up with plenty of music coming from America, movies and series set in New York. We’re truly influenced by the american cultures and fads.

So, beside the classical unmissable spots (let’s say ESB, Statue of Liberty, &co), what do you reckon it cannot be missed in NYC? I really need help!

Argentinian Chronicles: back to Buenos Aires (infographics)

Argentinian Chronicles are back! It’s been a while since my last post…actually I had to set up a bit my life in a non nomadic way: job, city, mood swap!

But I kept on traveling for small trip, especially mountains of course…it’s winter sports time! 

Anyway, I just realized I didn’t write a proper post about Buenos Aires (except from this). And it’s been very surprising! The occasion for this epiphany has been the planning for my next trip: Buenos Aires, Montevideo and Punta del Est for a very special occasion: friends’ wedding!

 So BUENOS AIRES, here I come! Continue reading

Honest Burger London / one of the best burger in town

They’re lots of traditions to be met when in London:

  • drinking more beer than water
  • visit something new visit
  • buy a pair of new shoes in my fav shop
  • eat a proper burger

Re the last one, this time I found one of the definitive places: better then hard rock cafè (but not as big), sticky fingers (but not so full of memorabilia), byron (and not so many franchises, Byrons are opening everywhere) or local pubs (and not so oily).

London Rock’n’Roll walking tour

London tips

There is no other place like London, for better and for worse. That’s why i usually come back there at least two times in a year.

This August I was there for a whole week for a very special occasion (Blur @ Hyde Park) having the time to enjoy the city beyond the usual routes (music shopping, thai food and markets). So i’ve decided to explore some places linked with the music. Starting with a google research, it’s easy to imagine how many places in London can be linked with music in some way.

This is the walking tour i’ve built based on my tastes and heroes, which will give you the opportunity to discover unusual areas of the city. I’ll keep on updating the map in the next visits.
