I know I’ve been away on the blog lately. For those who follow me on instagram ( yes the account is private, but I mostly accept if you don’t look creepy and accept me as well), you might have noticed that I was away. Out of the city I mean.
Yes, I had the fabulous chance to visit the Polynesian islands of Hawaii. In fact, I visited Big Island and Oahu. It’s been incredible really and I would return back if I could, but I would visit new islands that I didn’t do before. It was my first real trip with my husband ( because group camping doesn’t count right? ) and it was quite something. I think you really get to know one person once you travel with it and not when you get to live together. That’s my personal opinion..anyway won’t talk about this boring subject here. What about my trip? Yeaaa, I’ve always wanted to have a travel blog before, but I wasn’t traveling that much haha so if God willing maybe one day.
For those interested, the best and my worst stories will be posted here on the blog.
Oh before I forget, the picture above is a spinner dolphin jumping out of the water. Unfortunately, it’s the best shot I could get..but still beautiful no?
Remember I went to NYC for the long weekend?
Obviously, I couldn’t stay in Manhattan and not taste local pastries in a nice coffee place. Honestly, I didn’t have time to search for one on google, so my friends and I ended up asking someone on the street. And you know how New Yorkers are so friendly ( I am not even joking, it’s true !). Well, we were walking in the Upper West Side and I spotted a guy walking his dog , and in my head it was it, it was definitely a local from the upper.
You know what, I was right haha. He was talking so fast and said to us: ” Yes walk this side and in 3 streets ( or something like that, I can’t remember exactly) you’ll find a very famous bakery called Levain.
- First, note to yourself , I don’t hear very well. I understood Levine, but this is a totally another story like the time when we were walking in SoHo ,and asked for other nice shops. The lady was like yea walk toward ”Naw” and Broadway. Eh ”Naw” ? Umm more like Knot Street, thank you.
To get back to my little bakery story, I have some pictures below !!
It’s LEVAIN, not Levine. However, very authentic place !!
Their entry. So local, so hipster, so New York.
Inside of the bakery. It’s so little, it’s so cute. They do the best scones, I didn’t know that until we bought one. And some other pastries, but the scones are just delicious and the best. I regret I didn’t take more.
Best I ever had so far !! The worst is that we didn’t know what to expect so when this thing was in my mouth…it was just…magical.
Took coffee and pastries to central park and relax. Basically, my favorite activity in life.
Please do let me know if you go there. I would like to know your impression of the place :)
