NYC: eat our heart out!

Welcome again to wonderwanderwomen's further adventures in New York City! 

This time, we had great fun staying over for three days - sparing us the usual commute and freeing us to be as meanderly as we pleased. 

We were grateful for our lovely room at The Broome in SoHo - a cute little Frenchy boutique hotel.

some new jersey seoul food

There are some great Koreatowns built far away from the shores of the homeland, but our most visited Hangul-friendly hangout runs along Broad Avenue between Leonia and Palisades Park, New Jersey.

These are a few of our faves at Son Ja Jang.

NYC: touching down and reaching out

One of our favourite cities to explore together is NYC.  Sprawling out and upward, this metropolis is so different from my adopted hometown of London, but I enjoy so much of it in the same way:

ferreting out welcoming spots to feast on big breakfasts and foamy cappuccino,
Street art mural in front of Kate's Paperie, 188 Lafayette Steet
making the most of the New York street colours and exciting backdrops.

I'm often awkward and self-conscious when posing for photographs, but Mom delights in drawing me out of my comfort zone.

Life is sillier, and happier, when we're together.
