    i woke up like this

    April 15, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 8 °C

    guten morgen deutschland, guten morgen michigan!

    da es in kanada leider an den orten, durch die wir durchmüssen, immer noch zu kalt ist haben wir gestern einen kurzen (und nicht ganz so schmerzlosen) entschluss gefasst: wir fahren zurück in die staaten.

    da es hier um einiges günstiger ist tut der entschluss auch unseren finanzen gut. wie genau wir fahren wissen wir noch nicht genau, aber die zwischenstopps würden vermutlich so aussehen:

    - yellowstone national park, wyoming
    - saltlake city, grand canyon, arizona
    - las vegas, nevada
    - los angeles, kalifornien
    - san francisco, kalifornien
    - seattle, forks, washington (oh ja, forks!!!! ich finde die stelle schon noch wo das haus der familie cullen steht)
    - eventuell washington, dc

    mein herz würde purzelbäume schlagen wenn wir auch noch ein stück der route 66 fahren könnten, davon muss ich nico noch überzeugen, ein wenig hilfe würde nicht schaden.

    es ist echt traurig kanada „auf die wartebank“ zu schieben, aber es ist einfach zu kalt. ich hab seit new york schnupfen und halsschmerzen, leider muss man den tatsachen ins auge blicken und das beste draus machen.

    wir hoffen, dass wir 3-4 wochen für die route 1 brauchen und dann ab mitte mai bis zu unserem rückflug british columbia und alberta in vollen zügen genießen können und endlich unsere camping ausrüstung mal benutzen können.

    heute nacht haben wir am lake michigan geschlafen, siehe bilder, und heute morgen durften wir mal wieder in einer kleinen stadt in einem fitnessstudio duschen. jetzt sitzen wir im starbucks und laden alle unsere geräte und laden schon mal ein paar folgen auf netflix runter während unsere wäsche im waschsalon geschleudert wird. wir können abends dann gemütlich californication im bett gucken.

    gleich gehts weiter richtung yellowstone national park- denken wir.

    also in diesem sinne: uns gehts gut und wir hoffen euch auch!!!!

    Drive from Chicago IL to Grand Haven MI

    January 31 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 2 °C

    This morning we had breakfast at the hotel - a bagel (a mixture of of Pretzel und bread) which was yummy and some yoghurt.
    We then packed all our things and drove the 3 hrs home to Shirley and Dick's house in Grand Haven in Michigan. We arrived at 3pm.
    On the way we stopped at a rest area and I got a taco at Taco Bell which was tiny but nice.
    A great thing in the US is that all food places give you drinking water free if you ask for a cup.
    Also if you order soft drinks like coke and fanta, you get a cup and you only need to pay once and you get unlimited free refills 😱.
    In the afternoon we went to a department store called "Meijers" which is like a "Globus" in Germany. Although here it only has outlets in the midwest of the US.
    A strange thing to get used to is that you don't pay the price you see at the item you want to buybut that the tax is added at the checkout which makes it confusing.
    And everything comes in bigger sizes - 1kg coffee, 4l (1gallon) milk cartons etc.
    We had dinner and watched an episode of Aerial America which is a show showcasing the sights of each state which i liked very much. The episode was of the history and sights of Dallas -Fort Worth where we will go later.

    Grand Haven Michigan -Day 4

    February 1 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 1 °C

    Shirley made beautiful oatmeal and blueberry breakfast this morning 😊.
    Then we went for a drive to P. J. Hoffmaster State Park and checked out the displays at the visitor centre. We also saw some birds and a chipmunk and some squirrels eating the seeds at the bird feeders out the front. In the afternoon we went for a walk around the local cemetary to see if we can find deer and we saw three wild white tail deer and lots of squirrels and birds 😍🐿🐦.Read more

  • Day6

    Grand Haven Michigan -Downtown

    February 3 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 3 °C

    Shirley made a nice breakfast cottage cheese with bacon and cheese and orange pieces.
    We then went to the city centre for some sightseeing and shopping.
    We also looked at the beach of the lake and seen the lighthouse and red little house next to it which were pretty.
    The area is known for blueberry farms so I went to a store called Blueberry Haven which sells all things made from blueberries (soaps, coffee, jams etc). There I found 2 blueberry jams for mum and dad and grandpa.
    I also found a petosky stone for jodyne which is a fossiled stone from the town of Petoskey up north in Michigan where they exist and a nightie for myself with "Moose America" on it.
    -We had a nice dinner at Ryan's and Sherri's house and Ryan gifted me a whoopie cushion 😂😂.
    This goes back to when Ryan was given one as a kid and pranked Shirley many times.

    Silver Lake

    July 29, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 22 °C

    Silver Lake and the Dunes were a fantastic unexpected oasis on the shores of Lake Michigan. Fun walking the sand and a ride on sand scooter. This would be good for another visit.
