    Woodstock Harley-Davidson

    August 13, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 22 °C

    So... Don from Woodstock Harley saw us riding thru town, saw the Kiwi flags on our bikes & followed us as he thought we were lost. We pulled up at an auto parts garage looking for plates & then he pulled up behind us & invited us back to the shop for a coffee. 😁 More American friendliness - good guys 😎Read more

    Illinois State Fair

    August 14, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    This was on at Springfield Illinois. On route 66. We were told it was the big thing to see here. Tried my first corn dog & battered cheese stick. Absolutely disgusting & never having another one of either of those. Listened to the Gettysburg address from Abe Lincoln. He was fantastic, loved his job & spoke only in the first person. Incredible. Also picked up this little kinda ten's machine, real small that I'll start using on my leg (explain that later too). 31deg here need some free way riding on this part. Loud pipes save lives 😎Read more

    April 23, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 9 °C

    Mit dem Zug von dem frühlingshaft blühenden Washinton nach dem noch kahlen Chicago d.h. fahrplanmässig knapp 17 Stunden Zugfahrt plus 90 Minuten Verspätung.
    Es ist eine interessante Stadt: Natürlich die Architektur und ausserdem gute Museen. Erstaunlich, wie viele europäische Künstler in den amerikanischen Museen hängen. Auch Hodler und Böcklin haben den Weg nach Chicago gefunden. Ausserdem gibt es 3 Quartiere, in denen man viele Murals findet.
    Meine letzte Station auf der Reise ist New York. Wieder mit dem Zug.

    Boston & Chicago

    September 10, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    In Boston und Chicago waren wir jeweils zwei Nächte und haben zum Abschluss der USA nochmal zwei schöne Städte gesehen.
    In Boston sind wir dem Freedom Trail gefolgt, einem Spazierweg durch die Stadt, der an allen wichtigen Gebäuden und historischen Ecken entlang führt. Zum Beispiel gibt es hier alte Friedhöfe und Kirchen aus der Gründungszeit und die USS Constitution aus dem Unabhängigkeits Krieg.
    Nach Chicago sind wir dann unsere letzte und längste Zugfahrt (20 Stunden) über nacht gefahren. Am ersten Abend haben wir meinen anderen Austausschüler und seine Freundin getroffen, die in der Nähe von Chicago studieren und es war sehr schön ihn wieder zu sehen. Am nächsten Tag haben wir dann den Millenial Park mit der bekannten Skulptur "the bean", den Navy Pier und die Michigan Avenue erkundet. An unserem letzten Tag, weil unser Flug erst um 7 Uhr abends war, haben wir noch entspannt an einem (künstlichen) Strand am Lake Michigan ein bisschen Zeit totgeschlagen.

    Exploring Chicago

    May 3, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 8 °C

    New hotel is much smaller than the Sheraton at San Fran but can’t complain. Breakfast included so #winning
    Today we started with a walk to Millenium Park. We stepped outside the hotel and wanted to get back inside asap!! It was sooooo cold. It was sunny, but the wind felt icy! Walked down magnificent mile and took in all the buildings - it’s a beautiful place. Up ahead we saw a Nutella store!!!! Well that called for a hot chocolate which was next level great! Now we were much warmer and really ready to explore. A few sculptures, beautiful greenery and great views of the city as we headed down to Lake Michigan. It’s such a pretty city!
    Next we got on the ‘L’ and headed to Wrigley Field to watch a baseball game! Chicago Cubs vs St Louis Cardinals. Here we were sitting in the shade so froze our butts off. Again there were cup holders which was exciting haha and all those guys walking around selling peanuts, beer, hot dogs - just like in the movies. I don’t know how anyone could hate cricket and like baseball. Didn’t do much for me but it was a good experience.
    Our next stop was Navy Pier and a ride on the Ferris wheels with some more great views.
    Did some souvenirs shopping! We went in a mall, and had to show ID twice and then get a wristband as proof of age. It was ridiculous and pretty hilarious
    Finished off the night at Kingston Mines - a blues bar which was great. Something different and was really fun.
