    7.Tag USA - Ein ganz privater Horrortrip

    September 26 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 21 °C

    Wir wollten Beide das schlechte Wetter für uns nutzen und haben uns diesen Nachmittag das erste Mal getrennt...Julia besuchte den Friseur im örtlichen Wal-Mart in Bangor um sich ihren Traum von violetten Haaren zu erfüllen, und ich wollte unbedingt „ES 2“ schauen.

    Ich hatte den Film bereits in Deutschland gesehen und wollte ihn nochmal als Originalversion in Stephen Kings Heimatstadt Bangor schauen...hier fand auch die ursprüngliche Filmpremiere statt.
    Das „Westside-Cinema“ hat allerdings seine besten Tage schon längst erlebt, und liegt etwas abseits der Stadt Bangor. Wir hatten wirklich etwas Mühe das Gebäude zu finden 😅. Und ich war tatsächlich die einzige Kinobesucherin an diesem Nachmittag 😳...ein Privatsaal für mich allein, mit alten Kinosesseln und etwas dröhnendem Ton. Nur ich, Pennywise und mein Popcorn (natürlich amerikanisch mit Salz und Butter). Das war schon ein gruseliges Erlebnis, da ich sogar einige Örtlichkeiten im Film in Bangor und der Umgebung von Maine wiedererkannte.

    Nach dem Film hatte ich noch einige nette Gespräche mit den Kinomitarbeitern, da vor der Tür gerade die Welt unterging...so stark regnete es. Wenn es einmal in Maine regnet, dann richtig...genau so wie in den amerikanischen Filmen, wenn das Wasser in Strömen die Scheibe runterläuft. So hatte ich noch Gelegenheit das Kinogebäude kennenzulernen, indem noch sehr viele alte und neue Videospielautomaten standen und im Nachbarraum eine Hüpfburglandschaft...der leider am Abend die Puste genommen wird, sonst hätte ich sie noch ausprobiert 😂. Julia fuhr tapfer allein mit Blue Rogue durch den Regen um mich wieder abzuholen und es ging zurück zum Acadia Nationalpark...mal wieder bei im Dunkeln und bei schlechtem Wetter. Hier lernen wir wirklich Auto fahren 😉.

    Chipotle

    September 11, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 19 °C

    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, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    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

    Bangor Police Station

    September 11, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 19 °C

    Leave it to us to go to a Police Station intentionally on vacation. The whole reason Matthew wanted us to come here was so he could see this famous duck, known as the Duck of Justice. QUACK.

    Paul Bunyan Statue

    September 11, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 19 °C

    Bangor

    August 29 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 70 °F

    Dysart's Truckstop and Paul Bunyon in Bangor (b an gor) not (bane gor).

    In my research on Maine, Dysart's kept coming up as a great place to eat, then I laughed so hard at the blooper commercial on YouTube that I wanted to check this place out.

    Maine is such a logging state that we wanted to visit the 31 foot Paul Bunyon statue. Of course, we listened to the story after the visit.Read more

    Into the USA

    June 7, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    On purpose this time.
    Foggy start along the St Lawrence River. Crossed over the border at St Stephens- best coffee of the whole trip made by a girl from Cuba. Crossed into Calais then drove the coastal routes. Could have been very pretty but sea fog covered most of the coast. Inland was really sunny. You could see the fog as a bank of cloud.
    Met a man and his dog along a walking path to a beach who recommended a scenic drive - Schoodic peninsula byway. Was lovely but still cloudy ⛅.
    To Bangor for the night. Big steaks at the Longhorn for tea.

    Wilderness Edge Campground!

    August 15, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 70 °F

    Within striking distance of Mt.Katahdin 🗻is our new campground! Seconds upon parking Gordie is hard at work setting up his tent and Patrick is excavating a new territory. Much cooler here. A nice change from the humidity 😊🏕

    Let the games begin!

    August 15, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 72 °F

    Maddie and Angus didn't take long to break out the cribbage board! Let the battle begin!

    Naturally, Patrick charmed the camp owner into giving him a ride in his "tractor".

    Fueling up hikers with burgers and packing bags for a 5:30am departure to the Hunt Trail (aka Appalacian Trail) to summit Katahdin!Read more
