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.

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…

New York City Fall Edition

November 25, 2016

Oops I did it again! I went to NYC the third time this year! Nope I’m not rich, I only got super cheap tickets each time (if you’re wondering) 😛 After spring and summer I experienced how autumn/fall is like in the Big Apple and it’s challenging all the other seasons for being my favourite. Why? Because if these cool things:…

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.…
