    Geneva, New York

    October 4, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    Today was the beginning of our long road trip home. We got an early start as we had a long drive through NH and Vermont to our hotel in NY. When I stopped at the Vermont Welcome Centre to pick up a map of the state I discovered that there were some interesting places along our route. JS shuddered at this news!

    We stopped at the King Arthur Flour bakery, cafe, store and school. It was surprisingly interesting as we did a self-guided tour and watched the bakers in action making an apple strudel. They made it look so simple.

    Next stop was the Sugarbush Cheese & Maple Farm. We sampled different cheeses and maple syrup and were free to walk around the farm yard where they had different displays on maple syrup production.

    Vermont was special as we drove along a narrow secondary road that went through small, quaint towns. It was 24 degrees and sunny. Being a beautiful Sunday afternoon, everyone seemed to be out enjoying a perfect Fall day. We didn't arrive at our hotel until 8 pm but what a great day it was! JS even admitted that he enjoyed it!

    Finger Lakes Wine Country, NY

    October 5, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    When researching our route home I discovered that NY state had a wine growing region with 60 wineries. This area is known especially for its riesling wine. The growers are mostly small family run vineyards with limited production. We stopped at 7 different wineries and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the wines. The owners were friendly and informative and so were the other tourists. It was another wonderful day but now we have even more wine to declare at the border! Sipping on a nice riesling now :)Read more
