Day 5: from Canada to Gettysburg (PA)

July 28th, 2010 · 2 Comments


What joy if you draw back the curtains in the morning and lookout over the Niagara Falls! And one of the nicest things is that they look different every single moment of the day. It was still early (6:30), but the sun was shining full force. A light fog was rising from the falls. It again promises to be a nice day.

But alas, we have to move on again.

Today we go to Gettysburg in Pennsylvania. Gettysburg is the place where one of the pivotal battles of the Civial War took place, and where the war was turned in favor of the North.


Weather in Gettysburg, Pa at time of posting: 20 °C, n/a, wind n/a at n/a.

And another hotel (or two) booked…

June 20th, 2010 · Comments Off on And another hotel (or two) booked…

We booked another hotel! Rochester this time, between New York city and Niagara Falls! To make sure the trips aren’t too long, we wanted to make a stop alonge the way, but not too far from Niagara Falls, so we’ll be able to arrive at a reasonable time the next day…

First we checked out Syracuse, but over there it was either very expensive, òr dodgy review (“Watch out for bed bugs”?) òr in a bad neighborhood… So we then checked the area before Syracuse, but there aren’t very many hotels along that route, and the first town that showed some promise was Cortland, but even that was only so so!

After almost a week of clicking around the Internet, to see what hotels there are on the other side of the US border near the Niagara Falls, we almost literally fell for the Embassy Suites Niagara Falls!

It is beginning to look like we’ll really be going to the USA again next summer… 🙂

Disney has a great promotion, with 47% off of accomodation, special 14-day Ultimate Tickets ánd free Disney Dining Plan. By now we’ve booked a Old Key West villa and tickets to the USA on reward miles. The rest will be filled in as we go!

The vacation mood is already palpable! (more…)
