    September 11 in the United States

    Having never eaten at a Chipotle before, I asked for a minute to look over the menu signs. We eventually ordered and when we went to pay for our food they told us it was on the house since it was our first time. How nice of them! Overall the staff was super friendly and the restaurant was super clean. I was really impressed by the food too. I walked in thinking it's similar to Taco Del Mar back home... but let me tell you- this is way, WAY better than Taco Del Mar. We need a Chipotle in Edmonton! Are they in Canada anywhere at all? I may need to Google this later.Read more

    Bangor Inn and Suites

    September 12 in the United States

    That bathroom. Wow.

    Put it this way, American Standard made these blue bathroom fixtures in the 1930s. The color is called Clair De Lune Blue. This hotel feels just as vintage as the bed and breakfasts we were staying in earlier.

    Frankly I'm shocked the phone in here isn't rotary dial.

    Bed is actually quite comfy though. Slept really good last night and enjoyed a good breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausage and toast.Read more

    Mount Battie Camden Hills State Park

    September 12 in the United States

    Pictures absolutely don't do it justice. This place was beautiful and peaceful and I could have spent the rest of the afternoon just sitting on a rock looking out at he harbor below.

    I went and sat on a rock for a bit and I just felt this sense of peace that I haven't felt on a long time. The last time I felt this way was when I was in Mexico with an injured back. I couldn't sleep in because my back would hurt in the bed so I was up really early every morning when everyone else was still sleeping. I would sit outside and snack on fresh fruit and listen to the sounds of nature while working on a sudoku. In that moment I felt no stress. None. That's how I felt today too.Read more

    Acadia Inn

    September 13 in the United States

    I really liked this place. Pretty, clean, friendly people and they do extra little touches like movie nights with free popcorn and campfire nights with smores. You really feel comfortable and at home the moment you walk in.

    Breakfast was a choice of Mexican egg wraps, fruit salad, french toast and muffins. Very tasty. O had the egg wrap and a bit of fruit salad and took a blueberry muffin for the road.Read more

    USA Tour - Boston/Portland

    November 17 in the United States

    Last day in Boston today before my trip up to Portland, Maine later in the day. Today is when I started this travel blog, I also made a few FaceTime calls home to let people know I’m still alive and well. I was going to Portland via a greyhound coach which I was looking forward to - except they’re not Grey like in the movies 😭😭😂😂 it was still a comfortable journey which took about 3 hours. Unfortunately it was so dark I couldn’t see much but I managed to catch up on some episodes of ‘Norsemen’ which my dad recommended to me before I left.

    I stepped off the bus in Portland and immediately felt like this was a friendly place - the town reminds me of the one in the film ‘deck the halls’ there was snow everywhere and in some places around 7 inches deep. I walked all the way up congress street which took me pretty much direct to my hostel which is brilliant, more like a house than a hostel it’s in a brilliant location too!

    After checking in I made friends with two guys in my room - 1 guy called Bryan from Tennessee who is up here on work (he owns a weed farm) and he’s ex Air Force. There was also a guy called Miguel who was also in the forces and me and him ended up going for a few drinks around Portland.

    Brilliant night, Miguel was cool and he gave me some tips on where to go when I get to Texas as he’s from there. We ended up in a bar called Rosie’s which was a proper bar. Line dancing, country and western music and fries served in a basket!

    Great night!

    USA Tour - Portland, Maine

    November 18 in the United States

    Decided to just walk around the town today - Portland is only a small place, so it’s very easy to get around. I ended up around the harbour area today, which was so quiet as it’s all pretty much closed for the season, including a lot of restaurants. Eventually came across a bar called ‘Ri Ra’ which is an Irish bar that was actually quiet good. I drank miller lite, and watched the NFL like a local. I also got speaking to a couple from Boston who where up here on vacation for a few days. Real cool, super nice people who bought me a few drinks and also recommended other places to go in Boston if I ever go back (I go back in a few days 😂😂)

    After all the beer was drunk I needed another walk around the town. I stumbled across a place called ‘duckfat’ which was awesome - ended up getting a huge plate of poutine ❤️❤️

    USA Tour - Portland, Maine

    November 19 in the United States

    Today I braved the cold weather and did the back cove trail which is around 3.5 miles long around ‘Back Cove’

    Took me a while to do as the floor is covered in snow and I’m wearing Nike 270’s which isn’t ideal! However, it was a great walk which takes you into the north and west of the city for you to walk around and discover!

    Walking my way back towards my hostel I stopped off and got the best steak sandwich I’ve ever had. Currently in Starbucks, stealing their WiFi to update this blog, drink some ice tea and watch the world go by.

    It’s my last day here in Portland as I’m off back to Boston tomorrow - my original plan of carrying up further north to bar harbour was brought to an abrupt halt as each local I spoke to highly suggested I didn’t as I don’t have the correct clothing and it won’t be that pretty up there at the moment. So I am making my way back to Boston and I’ll basically see where ever is cheapest to go next and go there. I may treat myself to a beer or two tonight though...

    USA Tour - Portland/Boston

    November 20 in the United States

    So I came back to Boston today after a few days up in Portland. The plan was to carry up further north but after a few locals advised against it and seeing on the news that a storm was coming in I made the decision to come back to Boston for a few nights, as from here it’s quite easy to get around!

    However before I left for Boston I had another walk around Portland, and went to a place called ‘Beckys’ out on the waterfront that a few people had told me to try. It’s open from 4am to 9pm 7 days a week! Got my self a breakfast there and ended up talking to a few locals there, one recommended I make my way to New Haven in Connecticut, so I may look into that. What I have noticed a lot up in New England is that most people think Liverpool is in Ireland....

    Had my first travel incident today too - I left all my ID and credit cards etc at my hostel when I checked out. Luckily I got some WiFi and I had an email off the hostel letting me know they had them otherwise i wouldn’t of noticed till I’d of left Portland which would of been too late!!! Coincidentally it’s the first time I’ve left a room without patting my head - I always check I have everything and if I do I pat my head like a postman’s knock so I know I’ve checked... so I’ll be sure to pat my head every time I leave a room now....

    Reversing Falls Municipal Park, Pembroke

    June 16, 2015 in the United States

    Tag 14 Kilometer 1770

    Wir sind jetzt in den USA, genauer gesagt im US-Bundesstaat Maine, und stehen dort frei an einem wilden Fluss, der (wie der Petitcodiac River bei Moncton) abhängig von den Gezeiten seine Fließrichtung ändert.

    Das Camp ist ganz nach unserem Geschmack, und gestern sind wir noch lange am Lagerfeuer gesessen.

    Die Preise sind hier sehr viel erfreulicher als in Kanada, und der Liter Diesel kostet nur € 0,67. Allerdings gibt es hier Vieles nur in Großpackungen, die wir beim besten Willen nicht in unserem Auto unterbringen ...
