Mar 10, 2013 - Spring Break
Its been a ruff couple of weeks of school....projects. assignments, work etc...but now, its Spring Break. Its time to relax and add some more stamps to my passport. I figured ill hit up my old buddy the Queen of England and share a cup of tea or a cup of Joe. I must say, I'm really excited to finally make it to Europe. I originally hoped to include spain in my trip planning and work on my spanish but that plan didn't work out. Instead, I will hit up Belfast, Northern Ireland, York, Leeds, London and anywhere else in the UK I have time for....Jump to full entry
Feb 16, 2013 - Plans Dont Just Happen.....
Plans don't just happen. We have to execute them no matter what. I plan to see as much of the world as possible but that will not happen unless I make it. Im planning my next trip and as you can tell with the new map i just posted, it will be somewhere in the UK. Until then, its back to the drawing board to make it happen. “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore....Jump to full entry
Nov 21, 2012 - Putting the Pieces Together
Ever since Ez told me about his trip to Central and South America, it has been my dream to see the world and outdo him (one country at time though). As the departure date for my trip to Xela approaches, I feel like It’s all I dream. Yesterday, I got 3 vaccinations (oooouch) and paid for my ticket (#broke). Today, I picked up my contact prescriptions and researched into various travel concerns -- mostly required documents and stuff. I never knew traveling to another country was this frustrating. God Bless all the moms that do this with their...Jump to full entry
Oct 2, 2012 - Wednesday 2 October 2013. En Route To Buffalo.
Breakfast at about 7.30am. All self service. Bacon and Egg Sandwich – prepacked and heated in the microwave. Instant Oats – add boiling water. Waffles – toast in the toaster and add syrup. All very sweet. Bryan needed his Marmite!!! Ready to hit the road at about 9.30. Punched Buffalo into the GPS and followed the prompts. Decided to take a detour and find out what there was to see in Kingston. Parked the car and took a little reccie of the town. Saw the most amazing array of vegetables Hannaford’s a food store. All the things you see in...Jump to full entry
Jul 17, 2012 - Buffalo/Westfield
Day trip in and out of Buffalo, no wings, no cheap beer just a trip along the grape/wine route to do a factory visit and a very close call on the return flight back to NY. I actually ran to the gate with my belt and shoes still off following security to ensure we caught our connecting flight back.Jump to full entry
Jun 16, 2012 - Buffalo NY
Saturday, we drove to Buffalo and had "Chicken Wings" at the Anchor Bar where they were created. The story is - On a Friday night in 1964 Dominic Bellissimo was tending bar at the now famous Anchor Bar Restaurant. Late that night, a group of his friends arrived and wanted something to eat. Dominic asked his mother, Teressa, to prepare something for his friends. She had deep fried Chicken Wings, a part of the chicken that usually went into the stock pot for soup. She flavored them with a secret sauce, served them to her son's friends. they...Jump to full entry
Nov 15, 2011 - Back in America - just!
We are now in the USA, by the skin of our teeth. We had a difficult discussion and were seriously fearful at one point that we were going to be turned back into Canada. In the end they decided to "honour" the six months admission we were allowed on the 4th of August. So we are now stamped in until 3 February 2012, with a strong implication that we needn't bother trying to cross in again for quite awhile. So we now have a definite end date for our North American adventure. We will probably target the motorhome on a boat by no later than the...Jump to full entry
Oct 17, 2011 - Buffalo, NY
Got up this morning and Betty had a card on the table and then she and Mike sang "Happy Birthday". Because we managed to leave the dirty clothes in Windsor, we had to go shopping and buy a sleep shirt and some underwear for the rest of the trip. Betty was having some problems with 1 of the bathrooms so it was off to Home Depot for a part for the toilet and then we drove around the lake area in Buffalo and watched the waves splashing over the sea wall. the wind has been blowing around 40mph all day. Off to Schwabl's for lunch. Betty's great...Jump to full entry
Oct 16, 2011 - Welland Canal & Buffalo
Meeting all day on Saturday and the Grand Ball last night. Today it is saying goodbye to everyone and we are headed off to Buffalo, NY. We make a stop at the Welland Canal Locke #7 and watch an ore boat the CSL Assiniboine as it entered the locke was raised and then left. We entered the U.S. at the Falls and I was able to get this picture. RG is in his room, under the bed, our hostess had a party to attend and we are just relaxing and doing not much of anything. Betty left us a fire in the fireplace and chili in the crock pot, wine on the...Jump to full entry
Apr 30, 2011 - Worst day ever.
Why you don't try and travel with a hangover. So, I thought it would be really fun to take my girlfriend on a lovely evening in Buffalo in a "four star" hotel I scored off of priceline. I also thought it would be a great idea to get shitfaced the night before. None of these things turned out to be awesome. I learned the following things. 1) Casinos suck, and we were just lucky that one time in Vegas. 2) There is nothing awesome about Buffalo. 3) MAKE SURE TO PACK EVERYTHING YOU WILL NEED. 4) The boarder is mean to French people. 5) I need...Jump to full entry
Jun 18, 2010 - Leg 1 - done!
Leg #1 is now completed! We made it all the way to Buffalo today; it was a long drive, but I'm glad we decided to drive that kind of distance on the first day while we were still fresh. Hope behaved well in the car because all of her toys and books were new to her. Tomorrow, I'm afraid, may not go as well. Wildlife sightings for today: 2 turkeys in Dayton, ME 1 naked dude on top of an abandoned box truck, drinking a beer and sunning himself - along the highway in MA/NY area dead deer - on side of the highway in New York state No photos for...Jump to full entry
Jun 8, 2010 - Rust and Renewal
Impressions of Lackawanna Our destination today is Niagara Falls. To get to Niagara Falls we are going through Buffalo and to get to Buffalo we are going through Lackawanna - two towns that have a tough reputation. I say that because my aunt and uncle used to have a grocery store in Lackawanna and everyone in the family worried about them. It was a hard city they said, cold in the wintertime, hot in the summertime, dirty and dangerous all of the time. I was curious to see what Lackawanna looks like today. We came in from the south, along...Jump to full entry
