I took a trip to the east coast recently and stopped in New York and Baltimore. My brothers both go to school out there and I was excited to see where their “homes.” I found a quaint little Airbnb penthouse, with the nicest owner, Thomas. The space had a sweet spiral staircase that led up to a tiny loft, complete with books and succulents. It was one of my favorite, most unexpected, Airbnb’s I have visited.
I spent one morning wandering the streets of manhattan. I stopped and grabbed an everything bagel with cream cheese. It was very good. Also, I had a tiny breve coffee, the size of a dixie cup. It was pretty average, but the cafe sign was cool.
I don’t think I could ever live in New York City, but it is a special place. There isn’t quite a city like it.
The next stop was to see my brother in Baltimore aka Charm City. I was charmed by the old streets lined with row houses and history of the city. We had mussels on Fell’s Point and walked on the brick streets. It was a necessary chill trip to balance off the insanity of New York.
I wish we had more time there, and I can’t wait till next visit.
