New York: Home Away from Home

New York: Home Away from Home

Good morning from yet another hotel room, this time in Milano. Since we travel so much lately it's important for me to feel comfortable at every hotel we're staying at. And to be honest I love visiting a new hotel every time even if we visit the same place since it gives me a whole new experience. I noticed that finding a place to stay that will satisfy all of your needs can sometimes be tricky, but if you do then your stay is always that much more enjoyable. After a busy day in New York City, it was great to come back to our hotel room to unwind at the Sixty Hotel in SoHo.

SoHo is one of my favorite neighbourhoods in New York City, which is why we always stay there when we visit. The energy in this particular area is contagious and I can’t help but feel inspired. In the 1960s, SoHo came to represent the hip and creative avante garde scene of New York, with young aspiring artists taking up space in the low rent buildings that had previously been abandoned. Along with the outstanding art scene, low and high-end shopping boutiques, and inventive restaurants, it also boasts the worlds largest collection of cast-iron architecture, which I always enjoy looking at. Rain or shine, SoHo is worth the visit, especially during Fashion Week because a lot of the shows we attended were actually in the neighbourhood, which was super convenient.

It feels so nice to be back in my time zone. I got to spend my weekend resting and spending time with my family, which was much needed, especially since it’s now Milan Fashion Week. Looking at the schedule it promises to be a great week with a different vibe and atmosphere from New York. It’s definitely a lot warmer in Milan A and the buildings aren’t as tall there!
