The edge of Avignon

A bridge generally has no end, but the Pont d’Avignon – Saint Bénezet – has an end. Unlike other bridges that provide a crossing, meeting with roads or paths from start to finish. The Pont d’Avignon ends, creating somewhat of an edge to Avignon and her peak of life in history.

The flat and narrow of it

The narrow Flatiron building in NYC. As a Friends enthusiast I often saw the Flatiron building on the show and always dreamed of seeing it. While my last trip to NYC was not the first time that I saw the building, it was the first time that I truly appreciated its beauty.

The Flatiron district is fast becoming my favourite place to stay in NYC too, having opted for Hell’s Kitchen on my last trip to be closer to Madison Square Garden and the Best Bagel place  – Best Bagel and Coffee, 225 W 35th St – in NYC.

I would have been happier in the Flatiron district especially after stumbling across La Pecora Bianca. A great restaurant for brunch and coffee, just like I would have back home in Melbourne. Be careful though its busy, well worth the wait though. We were seated at the bar near the kitchen as we couldn’t get a table.
