Hmmmm...so today continues the chill out saga! More bleaching of hair happened, again more on that later... More packing up, pulling out things that need to be sent home and others that need to be ditched... More continued quests to sell the car... Lots & lots of reading!
Staying with Belinda & Shayne have really turned into our time out days so not too much happens, it’s really a blur of doing bits and pieces. As the title suggests though, today’s highlight was making a steak, mushroom and red wine pie. This was the carryover from our Australian day yesterday. We are trying … Continue reading Day 142 | North Carolina | Charlotte | All About the Pie
Today we all tried to have our version of Australia Day. This basically involved BJ making sausage rolls and pasties which we all demolished. In other exciting news I dyed my hair and can report that is now no longer orange at the roots – super exciting. Leftover Chinese for dinner! Cannot report too much … Continue reading Day 141 | North Carolina | Charlotte | Australia Day
This morning in the quest to shove as much 'Americana' action into our last few weeks in the USA we headed to the Cracker Barrel for breakfast and loaded ourselves up on some biscuits, potato hash and drip coffee.

Definitely more impressive than the American Falls also as they … Continue reading Day 138 | Ohio | Cleveland | For One Night Only
This morning we headed out to Niagara. I had found us a couple of sights to see along the way...today I failed! LOL! Theoretically there is a waterfall called Triphammer Falls which is about an hour or so away from Ithaca...NOPE! Apparently this waterfall is actually in Ithaca and there is a road called Triphammer … Continue reading Day 137 | Canada | Niagara | Across the Border Again
We woke up this morning to snow!!! I have been surprised that really we haven’t seen a whole lot of snow during our trip. It has somewhat saddened me so when there is snow I am like a small child and I get super excited. As Ithaca does get a lot of snow they are … Continue reading Day 136 | New York | Ithaca | Snow & Waterfalls
Before leaving town we just had to do a little drive through Harvard. Initially we were thinking it would be a campus similar to how our universities are at home so we would be able to do a wander around. However, it’s more that the university is the town so there are Harvard buildings everywhere. … Continue reading Day 135 | New York | Ithaca | Witches and Other Stories
Given we only have a day in Boston, Anthony had researched and the best way that we would be able to see the highlights of Boston in a short time was to walk the Freedom Trail which is basically a historical walk through the city. They have a website and you can read up and … Continue reading Day 134 | Massachusetts | Boston | In a Nutshell
