Through fairy tale lands in Watkins Glen, NY

August 3, 2017
Watkins Glen gorge trail

Guys, I hope you’re not tired of waterfalls yet! There’s more to come but it’ll be the last one for now – promised 😉 Our last stop of our upstate road trip took us back to the Finger Lakes region, not far from our first spot Ithaca. This time, however, we stayed closer to the lake and further from any big towns. It was the perfect place to relax after visiting comparably busy Niagara Falls.…

Niagara Falls – More than just a waterfall

July 21, 2017
Niagara Falls Canadian vs US side

We continued our road trip from Ithaca towards west and crossed the bridge with the friendly name Rainbow Bridge where I set foot on Canadian ground for the very first time. Niagara Falls – there’s not much to tell you – I mean EVERYONE has at least heard about them, and being one of the top tourist attractions in the world (among the Top 10) a lot of people have seen them too. That being said, Niagara Falls still hasn’t lost…

Ithaca – New York’s gorges college town

July 11, 2017
What to do Ithaca NY

No, there’s no spelling mistake in the title, Ithaca truly is gorges! And I’ll tell you soon why 😉 As you may (or may not) know, New York isn’t only a world famous metropolis but also names one of the 50 states of the US of A (where New York City is actually part of). Simply called “upstate” by locals, there’s no way you would mistake the hectic city with the unhurried countryside. After over a month not leaving the…

Fall foliage in the Pocono Mountains

Pocono mountains fall foliage

Pocono mountains, you may wonder where they are? After some research about the best locations for viewing the autumn/fall foliage or Indian summer I came across this rural gem in Pennsylvania, only a two-hour drive from NYC but worlds away. We spent a weekend in and around the cute town of Jim Thorpe (named after one of the most successful native American athletes) and stayed in one of Jim Thorpe’s grand mansions, the lovely DeFeo’s B&B.…

Greetings from the Cape

August 9, 2016
Cape Cod

What locals simply call the cape actually is the shortcut for Cape Cod, a peninsula and popular summer destination that offers endless sandy beaches, lots of hiking and bike trails and the epicentre of hippie and gay tourism in the artsy town of Provincetown. It supposed to be an easy two-hour drive from Boston but turned out to be four at the end thanks to heavy traffic.…

Boston – so much history, so much seafood

August 3, 2016
Boston

I just got back from a little vacation and while others are flocking to the beaches during this time of the year, my trip wasn’t the typical summer destination – but you know – with a bf living far away, your holiday planning becomes pretty straightforward 😉 Although NYC probably will never bore me, it was nice to see a different place which was easy to get into from Europe. …
