Day 4: 20/07/15
This was the last full day we had in NYC; we made the most of it by visiting the incredible 9/11 memorial and museum, the Statue of Liberty and finally taking a tour of the New York ‘Madame Tussauds’ display. I never wanted to leave this wonderful city but the adventure didn’t stop there…
Day 5: 21/07/15
I actually don’t have any documented photos of this day, however it was the day we left New York got our hire car and headed for our next stop on our east coast road trip; Boston, Massachusetts. It took us 4 hours to drive there despite my assumptions that the two cities were fairly close in distance! Once we arrived we ate fish and chips by a nearby lake and watched the sun go down – a perfect end to the day.
Day 6: 22/07/15
We took more advantage of the city on this day, exploring the sights that Boston had to offer; including the waterfront, the huge markets and the Boston Tea Party (highly recommend this for any tea lovers out there).
Day 7: 23/07/15
We then proceeded to travel to our next stop which was Portland, Maine. We only stopped here for one night in a roadside motel, (which was a cool experience in itself) but what we did see of the town reminded me of some of the seaside towns back home. We wandered round a few of the quirky, antique shops where I bought a few gifts for friends back home.
Day 8: 24/07/15
Another day of traveling, as you’ve probably gathered by now there wasn’t a lot of time to rest on this holiday but I wouldn’t have had it any other way. This time we made the 3 hour journey to ‘Bar Harbour’, a town on a small island called “Mount Desert Island” that is only connected to mainland US by a huge bridge. We didn’t arrive here until the evening and so there are no photos for this particular day. It’s definitely true what they say about ‘rain in Maine’ though, it felt completely different to the heatwave in NYC a few days earlier.
