Paris Has My Stamp Of Approval

So, I went to Paris this past weekend.  And I’m not going to lie, it was great.  My Ukrainian origins might have something to do with this, as we consider ourselves somewhat European, and being in Paris also felt like somewhat home. First things first, traveling is stressful no matter how you put it.  As I found myself hyperventilating at …

Utah – Travel To The Orange Lands

I went away for several days last week.  And we went to Arizona and Utah to look at a bunch of canyons and canyon related stuff.  And although I was sort of looking forward to it, I was also skeptical.  I expected myself to be hot, and tired, and miserable, and complaining all the damn time.  And you know what? …

Dia Beacon – The Far Away Place With Erotic Poems

I’m done bitching about looking for an apartment in New York.  Because against all odds I found one, and managed to put together some quality material.  Don’t quote me on the quality part. I got to visit a cool place this Saturday, and it’s called Dia: Beacon.  It’s a museum of contemporary art, or the weird shit, as I call …

Museum Mile: How to Stay Classy and Cheap

So the Tuesday of June 16th, I attended a pretty cool event called Museum Mile Festival, and it’s where all the New York’s museums located on the Fifth Ave open their doors to everyone for free, and you get to be a cheap ass museum lover.  It happens once a year, so next year mark your calendars, and save some …

Arthur Kill Ship Graveyard: Ghosts Stole My Drone

How awesome was my weekend?  Pretty damn awesome.  Because that’s what happens when you plan well.  Or when you plan activities that you actually look forward to.  And I look forward to activities when there is a graveyard involved.  Apparently. Anyway.  A fellow Global Storyteller wrote this article Arthur Kill Ship Graveyard and I found it truly intriguing.  And so …

Saturday in Manhattan, Sort of…

So… Saturday in New York.  What to wear and what to do. Wear whatever the hell you want.  But if you’re in New York make sure it’s like stylish and organic.  And Vegan.  And there is a word Converse somewhere in your outfit.  I’m pretty sure those are prerequisites of the city life.  I didn’t make them. Name:  Mila Nyk ...

Florida That is Not Miami

Ok, so this past weekend I went away to Florida for a few days.  And the whole purpose of the trip was to show my pale body that sun is a very much tangible object.  And we didn’t go to Miami nor Key West, we stayed right in the middle-  in Key Largo.  And this choice turned out to be ...

Brooklyn Botanical Freak Garden

If you find yourself in Brooklyn during the month of April, first of all - lucky you whichever month you find yourself in Brooklyn, because Brooklyn is awesome.  Secondly, this is the month you need to visit the Brooklyn Botanical Garden.  Because they have an event where the wild things go.  Here's what I mean. Name:  Mila Nyk Age Group:  ...

New Orleans – Jambalaya and All That Jazz

This past weekend, I happened to be visiting New Orleans for a few days. And here's how that went. I was driven from the airport to my place of stay by a taxi driver. Attention - a happy taxi driver. My flight was delayed by two hours, and I arrived at 1 am, and this taxi driver was just so ...

Your Ultimate Guide to Bushwick

Well, actually not exactly ultimate, and not exactly a guide.  More like a recital of my evening spent in Bushwick, but here it goes. So, if you’re into good food and happen to live in New York - lucky you.  If you live elsewhere…well, I don’t know, travel a lot or something.  As a well-known fact New York has a ...

How I Fell in Love with Hummus, or Why Travel to Israel

I went away to Israel.  And the reaction I got from a lot of people was ‘Really? Why?’  Because it’s one of the few places that don’t officially celebrate Christmas and New Year’s (this was the time when I went).  And because it’s in the Middle East where things blow up, and people get murdered.  And because it’s the country ...
