What is you way to relieve stress? .
My goal is to get to the point when I just live no stress lifestyle. But for no it’s not always happening 🤷🏼♀️ for me the best way to recharge myself and get rid of any negativity and stress is - jogging/running. In general I do love run and when I feel that I need some extra motivation and calmness, I take my headphones and starting run. Also stretching and meditation - are very helpful for me. .
Please share your thoughts too. .
Are you addicted to your morning coffee? ☕️
I am definitely not a big coffee fan, normally I just don’t understand the taste of it and it 100% doesn’t help me to stay awake... but when it getting cold outside, sometimes, I just feel like having some latte with almond milk 😋, and the only place in the city where I do enjoy it - is @gregoryscoffee I don’t know what is the secrets of their coffee, but it tastes sooo good and the atmosphere in almost all cafes super cozy 🍂🍃 I would recommend to check this place, my favorite is the one on 1st Avenue and 69th street. .
Also I would love to hear from you what places do you like and why? .
I am not a big fan of clubs or noisy places with a lot of people, I prefer nice rooftops, wine bars or just cozy places with light music and good atmosphere. .
Today my dear friend @mariablagova is visiting me from Russia and I wanted to show her one of #speakeasybar .
We went to the Ice-cream shop on 2nd Avenue between 88th and 89th street. It is little more different and more cozy than the places I was in Downtown, I would definitely recommend to check it - very cozy, music is great, beautiful design and great staff. .
Also let me know about your favorite places to go out — I am always looking for some new interesting ways to spend the weekend 🤗
It was my 3rd time in DC, but the first one when I had a chance to enjoy the city. And I am very surprised that I didn’t like it before. It was super warm nice weather and I was lucky enough to have amazing friends around to guide me with the places to check.
So everything is super convince in the city - good subway system and some water taxis also, if you don’t want to take an Uber. I personally love bicycles, and if it is possible always choose this way to do sightseeing.
If you are planning to visit DC for a day or two - I am happy to share my program:
I would start walk from Union Station toward United States Capitol, then walk through National Mall (the street with almost all museums - I would recommend to check Renwick Gallery, but it is next to White House) to Washington Monument, go up to White House, check Renwick Gallery and check Lincoln Memorial right after. I was biking around, so it was super pleasant and rather fast (I had just one day, so I needed to be quick 😊). When you finish with all main places, take an Uber to The Whatf - new district, super modern, a lot of great restaurants and beautiful boardwalk and from there take a water taxi to Alexandria and National Harbor - two absolutely outstanding places, reminds me of Europe a lot. And in the end get the taxi back to Georgetown - and if you will catch the sunset, you will definitely be pleasantly surprised with that super romantic 45 minutes water walk :) also Georgetown Waterfront Park is a great place to have a dinner. .
Have a great trip to DC, it is definitely place you want to check. And ask me questions, if you have any :) I am always happy to help! .
