Super 8 White River Junction
Travel Blogs from White River Junction
After a simple continental breakfast at Lowville this morning, we loaded up our 'chuckwagon' and saddled up 'PEARL' and away we rode. Plotting our next destination into 'Fadie-Belle', we turned and drove down some beautiful back roads and then on the more primary ones. We noticed that we were right in the middle of Dairy Farm country.
... Cherry Garcia" ice cream put the fire out too!
The last couple of days have been pretty darn good, we've travelled halfway round the world and caught up with friends and met some lovely people from a completely different country who are all doing what we all do - living their lives in their local communities, supporting each other and sharing good times and bad keeping a warm welcome up their sleeves and smiles on their faces.
... really friendly and approachable as well as being quick with a laugh. This we soon found was the norm in these parts! Penelope drove us to a local covered bridge, these are a feature of the area and are designed to remain open in times of heavy snow. The trees here, which are a national attraction as they turn with beautiful "fall" colours, have only just started to change colour but created a quite lovely scene at the site of the bridge as well as in ...

Heading off in the car we past through beautiful Vermont (almost Fall) countryside. The leaves here are just about to change - had we come a week or so later we would have experienced the wonderful colours of Fall in Vermont.

Motel rates 2 1/2 stars out of 5. Front desk girl did not have room available for us that we reserved back on April 22. she had a 'snobbish' attitude and made us feel like we were 'bothering' her just to wait on us. Then we had problems connecting to the motels wifi, and when I called her she was in her best worst form on the phone, talking down to me as if I didn't know what I was doing.
We will NEVER EVER stay in this motel again...nor recommend it to anyone.
We shake the dust of this motel from our boots as we leave.
