Staying on the Stowe-theme, a blog post is coming up with the best places to eat in Stowe. But before I dive into that, there's one place which deserves some special attention. It's called Doc Ponds and we discovered it by coincidence on our first day in Vermont. It must have been our lucky day, because I'm pretty sure we found the best food in Stowe, or even Vermont. In one week, we went to Doc Ponds four times to test the whole menu, for blogging purposes of course (any excuse).

If you follow me on Instagram, you'll have seen that I spent my spring break in Stowe, Vermont for a little skiing holiday. It was the first time I went skiing in the U.S. and I really liked this totally new experience. I'm used to skiing in the Alps, so this was quite a change of pace. If you're ever considering skiing in the East Coast of the U.S., I can highly recommend Stowe in Vermont. It's rural but charming, and you'll have a skiing experience you'll never forget. I've made this post to guide you through your first skiing holiday in Stowe VT.

Remember my London post about my favorite wifi work spots in the city? Well, I thought it was time to make one for New York as well! Because changing environments stimulates me and make me a more efficient worker, I've been trying out several spots in the city (mostly downtown) where I can get some work done while drinking a good cup of coffee. My main criteria are: spaciousness, comfort and wifi. I've selected thirteen places which tick all the boxes!

Because I'm quite literally brunching my way through the city, here's another brunch post for you, fresh from New York. It's a very tasty one, so you better not be too hungry before reading this. The Standard Grill had been on my list forever, mainly because I'd heard many good things about the fries. And there's nothing better than some crispy fries, especially after a 10-kilometer run, am I right?

I'm doing it. Finally. My first half-marathon ever. I probably said 100 times that I wanted to do it but I never signed up for a race, but now I did so it's official. I'm kind of nervous because 1) it's in 6 weeks, 2) I can count on one hand the number of times I went for a run in 2017 and 3) I've never run a distance longer than 13 kilometers. So if I want to successfully complete those 21.1 kilometers, I have a lot of work to do.

Brunch is BIG in New York. It's the perfect meal because 1) it's acceptable to order both waffles and fries, and 2) if you do it right, you have breakfast and lunch in one go and won't need another meal until the evening. Since I didn't take many pictures at these three places but I still wanted to share them, I decided to make one big post with three New York brunch spots. Ruby's serves a nice Australian brunch, at Maman you get a French déjeuner and at The Smith you'll find real American-style options.
