Driving to NYJuly 3, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C
Today we had our 2nd last long drive before we head back to Melbourne. We left Joe and Carols about 10am and had about a 4 hour drive.
Joe played with Brandon and Inara while we packed up our stuff. Brandon enjoyed Joe's company and really bonded with him over a few days. He was sad to go.
We were driving to East Amherst, to stay with Jackie, Elisa's oldest friend from high school. We actually stayed at Jackie 's brothers townhome where he lived with his wife Sara. Jackie 's partner is a homebody and doesn't really like people at the house, so Peter was so kind to offer his house to us. We didn't know that Peter and Sara where going to be there as they were supposed to be on holiday. It was a full house with us 4, plus Jackie and of course Sara and Peter but it was very comfortable and fun.
We couldn't meet Jackie till 5pm, so we did some shopping in Erie, Pa and had lunch at Panera bread. Melbourne is having it's coldest winter and while we are here with record breaking heat, we looked for jackets at Burlington coat factory. Elisa found a lovely jacket but Josh was not as lucky.
That night Elisa went out with Jackie, Sara and Peter to NY Beer project, a new brewery not far from the house. Elisa was so excited about the "taste of buffalo" platter as she was able to eat beef on kimmelweck and buffalo wings in one go. Josh stayed home with the kids as Brandon was in no form to go out and sit, so Josh was very happy catching up on Stranger Things on netflix and doing nothing.Read more
