Montauk, the most eastern part of New York...
So, as promised I’m starting the throwback with how it all started. Me taking off from Sweden via Helsinki to fly to NYC. I was lucky and got a window seat. I forgot to report my dietary requests though so i could only eat the snacks since the mixed in the meats, but that’s fine. Reminder to get it done next time! What you see on the picture is the most eastern part of the state New York, Montauk.
Charley St on 41 Kenmare St and the view from the rooftop called the crown at Hotel 50 Bowery
I’m getting real pro on how to get myself from A to B in a cheap way. Maybe not the most comfortable or efficient, but I’ll make it there haha. So after landing in a gloomy New York I took the subway to Canal St and walked my way over to Hotel 50 Bowery were Becca was working. I dumped my bags and went out again in the hunt for food. Walked over and found Charley St, an Aussie owned place, which offered delicious made to order salads. I forgot to snap a picture but I ate it while the girls were preparing for the meditation event they were having that night on the roof. We joined for some mediation that ended with a glass of rosé on the roof before me and Becca headed home to hers and fell asleep pretty much right away.
The train to New Jersey
The day after I took my bags and made my way out to my home for the upcoming weeks out in New Jersey. I was going to stay with the family I used to work for when I was an Au Pair.
Beating the kids in chess and taking them and their friends to the playground!
It was so exciting to see the kids again. They got so big. I’ve been back every fall to visit them but this time they really felt like real people if that makes any sense haha. They’re so talented and beautiful inside out! I got to hang out with them for like one and a half day before they took of for a Labor Day adventure and I got the house for myself!
I woke up the following day feeling very grateful to be back in “my room”.
The pool at the country club
My days alone was spent by the pool, in the park or in front if the tv. I finished the last two episodes of Euphoria and just enjoyed being back to a full on summer!
