Guggenheim Museum & Agnes Martin

Posted by in Attractions in New York, Exhibitions in New York, Weekend in New York

Cold months are our “museums/galleries season” .. and it’s been long time since we visited Guggenheim museum which itself is such a amazing building (as well as other museums from the Guggenheim Foundation in Venice, Bilbao, and Abu Dhab, see here). Through his daycare, Lukas knows who Pablo Picasso is and we were happy to see some of his paintings (once Lukas painted something funny at home and he said that Picasso made him do it:)) This time Agnes Martin, an American abstract painter had her exhibition.

Thanksgiving Morning in NYC

Posted by in Attractions in New York

It’s Thanksgiving morning! And we don’t have a bird! And most stores are closed or turkey is sold out! The morning we spent running around to find necessities for the dinner and once we got what we needed we went to relieve the stress related to holidays&shopping on the playground! We love playground in Brooklyn by Pier 6 specially in the winter where growing bamboos are green (don’t we all miss green in the winter?) and it’s hidden so it’s not that windy. We had lot’s of fun!

Last weekend was cold and sunny so we decided to go upstate New York to Seven Lakes area which is only hour from the city. This was the first time we went to this place so we were very unfamiliar. However, we decided to parked our car next to Sabago Lake (boat lunch area), put the…read more

Surfing in November

Posted by in Relax, Weekend in New York

It is not a secret we love ocean and surfing to the point what if the weather allowes we go and enjoy salty water on our faces even if it’s late November. Last Saturday, probably it was the last day with warmer weather (60F/15C) this year so we just had to take an advantage of it. The ocean was very cold, so after a short surfing session, hot tea was super helpful! Then we just played in the sunshine with nobody around us!

Diverse Beauty Exhibition

Posted by in Attractions in New York, Exhibitions in New York, Weekend in New York

It’s getting colder and colder so we’re switching our weekends from the beach&surfing to the city&art. Lukas is big enough to spend this coming winter in museums and galleries and NYC has so much to offer! It’s not a secret that we’re fans of Alexi Lubomirski, fashion photographer, so once we found out he has an exhibition, we had to see it. The exhibition which actually ended on Nov 13th (but I am sure there will be more to come) was titled ‘Diverse Beauty’ and it celebrates many different types…read more

Freedom Tower

Posted by in Attractions in New York

It’s been a long time since we did any touristy thing’s just not so interesting for the little one so it’s not so enjoyable for us, but this time was really great. We went to see the view from the Freedom Tower! The trick is to buy tickets online in the morning which cuts one big line! It was a jackpot! We didn’t surpass all lines but it was manageable. Freedom Tower! I must say that they a great job with the “anticipation” to see the actual view of…read more

Shower Niche (DIY)

A couple weeks ago I posted a hole in the bathroom wall on Instagram.  Here again is before and after photos. To do this you have to make sure you don’t have pipes or any other structural elements.
