Travel | #USA – New York

  • See Greenwich and the West Village, walk on the High Line and admire the view at the top of the Rock. Don’t miss JUMBO and push your walk to the bottom of Manhattan Bridge. And don’t miss he New York’s public Library either.

Doughnut Plant

After a long long walk, we grabbed three donuts to share in take away. We fell on the coach at home…. and it was wonderful… +1 for the blueberry donut! // 379 Grand Street, between Essex and Norfolk | 220 West 23rd Street, between 7th & 8th Avenues | 220 West 23rd Street, between 7th & 8th Avenues – all in New York

NBA – Boston Celtics Vs.Chicago Bulls

When we planned our trip to the US, there was no way to leave without attending an NBA, NFL or NHL game! Prices being completely crazy in New York for the Knicks, you’d better try to get tickets for the Brooklyn Nets. In our case, we just decided to wait for our trip to Boston as the Celtics were playing against the Chicago Bulls. We loved it so much, that when we were in Washington, we couldn’t resist to go watch another game between the Wizards and the Hawks (Atlanta).

These games are just crazy. Of course, the sport side is quite impressive, but the atmosphere is fantastic. There is always something going on: cheerleaders (the Celtics’ are just amazing), games, more dance, more basketball with kids, freebies… I just can’t see how you can be there and be grumpy. And because we were so excited with the sports there (and so jet-lagged) we spent hours in front of the TV trying to understand American Football. Guess what? Now we know the rules! So my dear Frenchies: Yes you can (too)!

Travel | #USA – Heritage & Museums in Washington DC

Among all museums in the US, those in Washington are unique because admission is free. The National Mall is surrounded by many interesting museums you can hardly avoid. You may challenge yourself and visit them all or you can pick up depending on your interests. If museum is not your thing, there is an incredible number of memorials to see in Washington, plus the US Capitol, the Library of Congress and the National Archives for example. White House tours are also free, but subject to request through a Congress Member or your Embassy in Washington if you’re a foreigner.

Anyway, when I went to Washington two weeks ago I visited some of these places of interest. If you lack inspiration, here’s a few glimpses of things you may want to see there:

Travel | #USA – Washington D.C

  • See the National Mall and take a walk in Georgetown.
  • Eat & Drink:

Good Stuff Eatery

Some of the best Burgers in town! The place works like Shake Shack in terms of service… but the Burgers…. I can tell you like many people I will remember Obama for his presidency, but also for this unforgetable “Prez Obama Burger” I ate there! // 303 Pennsylvania Avenue – SE  Washington DC 20003

Baked & Wired

Plan your walk in Georgetown but don’t forget the afternoon tea. Head to Baked & Wired, spend half an hour to choose a cupcake and treat yourself near Washington docks. My “Unporked Elvis”, a banana cake with peanut butter frosting was seriously good… // 1052 Thomas Jefferson Street – NW Washington DC 20007

Founding Farmers

If you decide to go there, here is my advice: be patient and be hungry (which sometimes comes with you being patient I know). The place can be really crowded and you can only add your name on a list and… wait. But once you’re in there, you’re definitively in for a treat. Portions are insane and taste is incredible so make sure you make a deal with your friends to share a bit of everything! Farmers breads are incredible, dog rolls as well and I never saw fried chicken quite like this. Life without this place would be a mistake so don’t miss it. // 1924 Pennsylvania Avenue – NW Washington DC 20006
