New York City: 48 hours in Manhattan & Chelsea

A dream came true ! Visiting New York was a trip with mixed emotions since I had great expectations. Manhattan is for sure an impressive part of NYC filled with beautiful buildings, parks, department stores etc.

I was not thrilled with the Times Square but I believe everyone should have it on their check list.

The Central Park was worth it ! It is definitely a spot which you need to visit and won’t fail your expectations. It is a wonderful place filled with people and many activities. Is very different from the parks in London – like the Hyde Park. The Central Park has more things to do with beautiful lakes and recreation options.

The MET, which is part of the Central Park is the must visit place in NYC. Is a massive museum where you can spend days wondering around.

The Upper East Side , is a beautiful neighborhood just walking distance form the MET.

The National Library; I really loved it. It is everything you expect from an inspiring library. The building is beautiful while the system that is being used inside the library in finding books is the latest one.

Chealsea ! Walking in Chelsea was one of the best parts of my trip. I loved this neighborhood. Its vibrant, colorful, filled with nice buildings and small shops. Its old and new, classic and modern. It is one of the places that makes New York so different. Google has its offices there and you can see beautiful small enterprises.

The city is definitely a sold out destination which has a lot to offer and a visit is always highly recommended.

Museo Atlantico: New Underwater Museum in Lanzarote, Spain

On the 25th of February 2016, a strange museum “opened” in Spain. The artist Jason deCaires Taylor installed the first phase of sculptures in Museo Atlantico. This is the first underwater museum of contemporary art in the waters of the coast of Lanzarote in Spain.

The visitors must dine into 14 meters underwater to have a tour. Is is a unique installation project dedicated to the humanitarian crisis of our days.

“The project drawing on the dialogue between art and nature is designed on a conversational level to create a large scale artificial reef to aggregate local fish species and increase marine biomass whilst, on the other hand, to raise awareness to current threats facing the worlds oceans. The main installation, The Rubicon features a group of 35 people walking towards a gate, a point of no return or a portal to another world.”

You may think its scary but the true numbers of the people who died trying to reach Europe the past two years are beyond scary. This is a tribute to the lost souls; the people who escaped from the war zones, put their lives in danger and they got lost in the sea.
