NY State – August 2016
After Montreal, we made our way south and west to the Syracuse, NY area to visit Elisa’s family. Burlington was along our way so we made stop there. Turns out we enjoyed it and would love to come back for a week or more and use it as a base to explore the many things Vermont has to offer.
Next stop after Burlington was Syracuse for almost a full week of hanging out with family and exploring the city a bit. It was awesome seeing everyone that we could, although we didn’t seem them all. Still, we felt pretty accomplished after checking in with someone different each day!
The finger lakes area of NY has been on our travel destination list for awhile, so we were excited to hear that Aunt Mary had bought a house on Skaneateles lake not too long ago. She was gracious enough to let us crash at her beautiful new house just a couple blocks off the lake and by the quaint boardwalk. We found the town to be very peaceful and a [erfect place to relax away from the big cities.
Next stop – Detroit (yup, don’t judge)
