Apartment A43, just a place where I work on my blog, read my books, watch all episodes of Friends and cook my meals. This is my home, for now, you know.. Wanderlust.
“Home is wherever I’m with you.”
“…she made her home in between the pages of books.”
The dining table is a place where all good things happen. It’s where we eat our meals, drink our wine by candlelight, discuss with friends, display our flowers.. Take a look at my table’s personal diary.
A place of memories.. Photo albums of my childhood in the Netherlands and grandmother’s clock.
“What matters in life is not what happens to you but what you remember and how you remember it.”
-Gabriel García Márquez
Soon CoralynxBlog will be found under the name Free Carnation and move to free carnation.com
Before leaving our ‘home’ in the caribbean in may 2013, boyfriend and I decided to go to New York City and take it easy before going on a new adventure. These are just a few of many photographs. If there is one thing I have learned in the city: Oh my, it is photogenic!
In any other place on earth, what would I have done on a cloudy afternoon? A good book and some good food. So in the city of extremes.. I took my boyfriend to one of the largest public libraries in the world and try some real New York bagels! I like to see as many famous places as possible when I am visiting somewhere new, without looking too much like a tourist. The Nikon camera doesn’t work in my favor!
One of the most precious memories of the city I have of the Brooklyn bridge. I have always wanted to go see it, as I have seen it on the tellie so many times.. But I couldn’t have imagined the beauty of the lines and colors that make this bridge so unique.
As you can see on the picture above, the One World Trade Center or “Freedom Tower” as I’ve got to know it, was still in full construction. This tower and an other building, forming together the 1WTC, are build next to the September 11 Memorial.
It is so fun to take the subway to the city center and enjoy some good people-watching!
This view on the skyline and it’s Empire State Building is taken from the top of Rockefeller Center, seeing the sun set on the city is a have-to.
One belongs to New York instantly, one belongs to it as much in five minutes as in five years.
From your blog-ster:
Thank you for reading another one of my posts. Soon CoralynxBlog will be moving to a new domain and change it’s identity. Soon this blog will be named Free Carnation.
May 9th 2014, the day my grandmother (or ‘oma’ in dutch) stept foot in an airplane for the very first time in her life. She turned eighty earlier this year and my mom decided to treat her on a once-in-a-lifetime-experience. For oma anyway.
Oma dedicated her life raising her eight children and taking care of her husband. Life has been hard I can imagine for this incredible lady. My mother felt it was time for her to take a well-deserved vacation in the south of France. At my place!
So I was happy to pick them up at the airport (where I took these photo’s) and show oma where I live for the first time. She had never been in any of the places I have lived, because I always live abroad. Oma had a great time discovering all the new things in her trip, like the architecture, the scenery and the culture.
We took a “train” ride through the old city center of Montpellier. There was a dutch voice on the tape for oma so she learned about the history of the city.
The sun disappeared behind a thick cluster of clouds that afternoon. Which was a pity because we were showing oma where my boy works, on the beach.
Relaxing on our balcony on the end of the day :)
On day two we took oma to a place called Saint Jean du Gard, where there is this old train station and these old trains that took us through the beautiful mountains..
Oh, and there was this stand with funny straw-hats! ;) All excited I took oma to the hat stand to try on a few, it was great fun!
Stay tuned for part 2!
As promised: I am easing you into the new blog.. There is still a lot for me to work on on the new address but I already have the design down. To make the change as easy as possible for you I already changed to the new colors on this blog. It’s like a look into the future!
