GPS Carlos Melia from White BIG APPLE

GPS Carlos Melia from White BIG APPLE   |  New York, United States  |  I am back in New York City, and this morning we woke up to see a full white coated frosted Big Apple. One of the nicest views of Manhattan, till it stops and all becomes black and muddy. But hey beauty doesn’t last forever right, so enjoy it and share it before it fades away.

I have been for the last 3 days, since I arrived back from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Here for the next two weeks, prepping for my 39th Birthday next Tuesday, and then on the 20th of March, off to Thailand for 3 weeks. Life could not be better.

Hope you enjoy my photos of White New York City from this morning, while I was walking to my favorite breakfast spot in Hell’s Kitchen, La Bergamote, to have my usual Almond Brioche with a huge cup of Coffee with milk. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends

GPS Carlos Melia at Orlando Florida

GPS Carlos Melia at Orlando Florida  |  Orlando, Florida  |  Reporting from Orlando, the land of Mickey Mouse. I will be here for a whole week. Main reason? doing all the Disney World Parks, God NO ha ha ha, been there done that many times already. I am here for a family reunion. Came to see my parents, whom are vacationing for a month, here in Florida. I must be fully honest, not quite one of my favorite destinations in the world, actually it used to be when I was a kid, but unfortunately that is long gone. I have been to Disney World over 15 tines, EPCOT Center over 10 times, Universal Studios and SeaWorld practically the same. Who knows, I might find something that quite strikes me this time. If not I will happy enough with spending some quality time with Mom and Dad. Any ideas or suggestions ? I am all big ears, same as Mickey Mouse.
Staying at the Marriott ‘s Grande Vista Rersort close to SeaWorld. A classic Florida massive resort,  signature of Marriott. Of course lots of kids everywhere. To my great satisfaction being 5 people in our group, we where given a huge suite with 3 bedrooms, each with its own full bathroom. There is a common living area with a big kitchen, including also a full laundry room. The resort has a fantastic gym.
So Welcome everyone to Orlando, Florida. I will be here till November 8th, when I will head back to New York City, to spend 4 days and get ready for my next adventure, which this time will take me to Peru. Now time to relax, enjoy Mom and Dad, after all we all still carry a kid inside, and Orlando, like it or not, is the best place on earth to get it out of you. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends

GPS Carlos Melia back in New York with Sandy

GPS Carlos Melia back in New York with Sandy  |  New York, United States  |  Last night I made it safely back to New York City thanks to Aeroflot. We were literally the last flight to land at JFK International Airport together with the A 380 double deck of Air France. Now in New York waiting for Hurricane Sandy to hit New York. The state of emergency has been declared, over 7,200 flights have been cancelled and Major Bloomberg said the worst is yet to come by 8PM tonight. Strong winds, floods, power outs, are some of the things coming our way. Everyone in the area stay safe, and best of luck. (photo above of New York see today at 12noon).

My first day in Deauville Normandy

My first day in Deauville Normandy  |  Deauville, France  |  On my first day visit to Deauville in Normandy, I learnt a lot of interesting facts, back at my suite next to  my fireplace I am writing and sharing them all with you. Deauville dates from 1860, being this their 152 anniversary. Located in the northwestern France, part of the commune of Calvados, yes the same that gives the denomination of origin to the famous Brandy.

Deauville is divided into Upper and Lower. Part of what they name Côte Fleurie (Flowers Coast) has long been home to French high society’s seaside houses and is often referred to as the Parisian riviera. Duque Morny envisioned to turn Deauville into the Kingdom of Elegance for Parisian, and so he did. Dream that survived through World War I and II.


Only over two hours and EUR 32 separates Deauville from Paris (Saint Lazare Train Station) you may visit for the day, or like I have, for a few relaxing days. A town with only 4,000 citizens, but lots of history and tradition.
Did you know that Deauville was the location of Mademoiselle  Coco Chanel‘s first store. Yes way before she became famous, in the summer of 1913, right on the side of the lovely and sumptuous Normandy Barriere Hotel.
Did you know that the style of Impressionism was originated here in Normandy, inspired by the beautiful skies and natural light of this region. Eugene Boudin, was one of the first French landscape painters to paint outdoors.
The Promenade des Planches, has been featured in many films, but the most renown and awarded was the film “Un Homme et une Femme” by Claude Lelouch, wining the Palme d’Or and two Oscars, featuring the classic song that goes…. guada ba ba ba, guada ba ba ba… I am sure many of you remember and are quite familiar with. Now Deauville every year hosts the Asian Film Festival and the American Film Festival.

Deauville is also very well known for the Casino, one of the top five in France. The horse races and polo tournaments. Also Deauville is very well know for the milk, cows are everywhere. The local butter, very important for the French cuisine, is one of the premium products of France.
Walking along the beach line, I came to the Barriere Hotels and the Casino. Both the Normandy and Royal are gorgeous and impotent, in true Norman style. The Normandy Barriere, dates from the 1912 featuring the Belle Epoque Restaurant and a bar specialized in Whiskeys. Royal Barriere featuring the Le Etrier Bar specialized in Champagnes and the Cote Royal Restaurant, just exquisite.
Well still three more days to explore so stay tuned… more to come at my blog. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
