Vacaciones con mi esposo

(Post in english below)
Desde que tuvimos a nuestro hijo no habiamos podido viajar los dos solos, realmente no habiamos podido estar los dos solos un dia completo, y lo necesitabamos! Necesitabamos ser novios otra vez por unos dias!
Asi que desde hace un tiempo tomamos la decision de viajar los dos, pero, haciamos el plan luego nos hechabamos para atras porque no queriamos dejar solo a nuestro gordo, al final yo dije nooo, necesito ese tiempo de los dos! Asi que despues de debatirnos entre varios destinos, decidimos ir a New York porque ya conociamos, de esta forma era un viaje relajado sin prisa por conocer nada, ademas, queríamos una ciudad donde los planes fueran de adultos (cenar, shows) y no un plan que podemos hacer en familia.
El viaje fue genial, hubo demasiado frio para mi gusto para ser honesta + el dolor de espalda que me acompaña a todos los viajes de caminar sin importar los zapatos que me ponga, pero hicimos de todo, y lo mas importante siento que conectamos como pareja. Hice un itinerario que al final no seguimos porque hubo tanto frio que ir a hacer un picnic en Central Park, no aplicaba! Asi que conocimos un par de lugares nuevos, comimos rico y descansamos.
Una amiga me compartió una lista de restaurantes, aquí los que elegimos:
1. Para desayunar: Balthzar, queda en Soho, buenisimo! Las homemade dounughts son alucinantes. Ese dia estaba lloviendo asi que el ambiente cozy del lugar fue perfecto, dicen que el brunch es increible pero nosotros fuimos a desayunar entre semana y nos fue super. Hicimos reservacion y creo que fue bueno porque estaban todas las mesas llenas (no habia gente esperando).

2. Para cenar: Spice Market, queda en Meatpacking district: me encanto! El lugar es super trendy, estaba llenisimo por lo que reservar es necesario, el ambiente, servicio y comida excelente.
La pasamos buenisimo y comimos super bien!

3. Para almuerzo o cena: Burger Joint at Le Parker Meridien. Primero que nada tengo que explicar que es este lugar porque yo no lo sabia, fuimos despues de ver un show de Broadway, quedaba muy cerca de nuestro hotel, pero es un lugar como “underground” de hamburguesas, no se dejen engañar porque esta en un hotel, no hay necesidad de arreglarse. Es un lugar de hamburguesas sencillisimo, rico, pero sobre todo, toda una experiencia.

4. Para almorzar o cenar, o para toda hora: Eataly Market & Restaurants, toda una experiencia, es un must al ir a NY! Queria comprarlo todo! Todo! Es un mercadito italiano de comida, ingredientes, vinos, libros, de todo! Dentro hay un cafe, restaurantes, venta de pan, carnes, quesos, etc! Les dejo un par de fotos para que se inspiren, por mi hubiera pasado alli dentro todos los dias. Comimos en la pizzeria super rico, y luego nos llevamos unas foccaccias al hotel de cena, estaban increibleeees!! Ademas probe la bebida mas rica de limon! Me encanto! En serio, un spot obligado!

5. Para los antojos: Magnolia Bakery, jure que no iba a ir por la cola que hice la ultima vez para entrar, pero tuve que hacerlo! El ultimo dia queriamos comer algo rapido, no un desayuno grande, y algo rico… Asi que tenia que ser Magnolia Bakery. No habia cola, entramos perfecto y pedi un cupcake y un lemon bar… Enloqueci! Pero me quito el antojo y fui feliz!

Me encanta NY!

Ever since we had our baby we haven’t been able to travel just the two of us, actually we haven’t been able to be by ourselves for a whole day, and we needed it! We needed to be boyfriend and girlfriend again for a few days! So, for a while we’ve been talking about traveling together (just the two of us), but we always dismissed the idea because we couldn’t stand to leave our baby alone… But in the end I was the one to decide that we needed this time, we deserved it! After looking at several options, we decided to go to New York because we’ve been there before, so we didn’t have to worry about visiting typical tourist spots, but in relaxing and doing plans for adults, like watching Broadway’s shows, having dinner and walking around. Also, we couldn’t stand the guilt of going to a place where our toddler would be happy (like the beach).
The trip was great, although it was a little bit too cold for my taste, and I got this terrible backache that joins me in every trip I take, no matter which shoes I choose. Still, we did so many things, and the most important thing is that we had so much fun and connected as a couple.
I had a schedule, which I never do, but we couldn’t follow it because it was so cold, that doing a picnic at Central Park was no option! So we went to some new places, ate incredible food and rested. A friend of mine gave me a list of restaurants, from which we choose:
1. For breakfast: Balthazar in Soho, great place! The homemade doughnuts are amazing! It was a rainy day, so the cozy environment was perfect, they say that the brunch is really good, but we went to have regular breakfast during a weekday and it was really good. We did a reservation, which was convenient because even though there was no one waiting, most of the tables were full.
2. For dinner: Spice Market at Meatpacking District, loved it! The place is super trendy, it was full so reserving a table is highly recommended, the environment, service and food was great. We had a lot of fun and ate perfectly!
3. For lunch or dinner: Burger Joint at Le Parker Meridien. First, let me explain to you about this place because I didn’t know how it was until we went there, we went to watch a show, and after it we were planning to have dinner there. It’s like an underground burger place, don’t be fooled that just because it is at a hotel it will be fancy, it’s not, at all. It’s a super simple, good, but specially a total experience burger joint.
4. For lunch or dinner (or anytime actually): Eataly Market & Restaurants, it’s a total experience, a must in NY! I wanted to buy it all! All! It’s a little italian market with food, ingredients, wine, books, everything! Inside you can find a coffee place, restaurants, bread, meat, cheeses, etc. I could’ve spent my time in there every day. We had a really good pizza and then we bought some foccaccias for dinner at the hotel, which were wow! In addition, we had a lemon beverage which was super good! I loved it! It really is a must!
5. For the cravings: Magnolia Bakery, I was not planning to go because the last time we did we had to do a huge line, but in the end I had to! On the last day we wanted to have something fast, not a big breakfast but something fast and yummy, so we had to go to Magnolia Bakery. There was no line, i had a cupcake and a lemon bar… I went a little bit crazy! But I was so happy!
I just love NY!
