NYC’s Flatiron Room: A Different Kind of Flight

The Flatiron Room is a whiskey lover’s dream with selections ranging from around the world.

 

Care for a drink? Jameson and ginger ale is my usual. Occasionally, it’s a New York Sour or a Fireball. Nothing fancy. As you can tell, I’m a whiskey girl. But when I do want to get fancy, my go-to whiskey bar is The Flatiron Room – a culturally curated whiskey bar with selections from around the world.

Experience NYC Like A Local

Experience NYC Like A Local with a Native New Yorker – me!

 

A Pair of Panties & Boxers was my first travel blog. I started it when I was studying abroad in China. This was when I was bitten by the travel bug and it’s been almost 10 years since then. However, over time life got in the way and both traveling and writing fell to the back burner.

2017 will be different. I plan to get back to writing starting with NYC Like A Local, a weekly series that captures NYC from a local’s perspective – me! This series features things not found in typical NYC tour guides and travel posts.

Looking forward to sharing how you can experience NYC like a local! Here’s something new once a week, every week.

A Week Through Prague, Vienna and Budapest!

Traveling to Prague, Vienna and Budapest? Here’s an itinerary to help you plan your week in Eastern Europe.

 

Prague

Day 1: Half Day in Old Town Square

Welcome to the first stop in your Prague, Vienna and Budapest trip. You can either kick off Prague at the Prague Beer Museum or you can end your first night here. Although, it isn’t really a museum. It’s more of a smokey dive bar filled with locals and out of towners from all over the world. Whichever you choose, Old Town is the ideal place to stay if your in Prague for a few days.

Everyone makes a stop at the Astronomical Clock in Old Town Square to watch a puppet show at the top of the hour every hour. When the show’s over, dinner options are plenty. If you opt for some local goulash, like I did, you can walk it off by strolling across the Charles Bridge towards the Lennon Wall. The Charles Bridge at night highlights the 30 gothic statues that line both sides of the bridge.
