Where I stayed
Under 50 min flight. This is amazing news. I know we will definitely be going back to NY for the weekend.
Arrived in Maine. Maine is very green and surrounded by forest everywhere you look.
It seams like a ghost town and everyone is behind! But I am sure they are not.
We have been shopping and looking around the town. We have picked up some bloody brilliant bargains!! We have also been amazed by the food here. For example in Walmart. Man you could get lost in that place for hours! We ended up getting a little snack pack picnic which consists of
cheese, rolls, nuts, blueberries, tomatoes, spinach and a little bakery treat.
Today we visited downtown Bangor which consisted of 3 streets of shops. Ha ha.
We ended up at an Irish pup. Had a couple of drinks and some food.
Very nice. It's strange how 'Irish Pub' in Bangor Maine made us feel more at home!
We got back to the hotel, just in time for some free wine & cheese tasting! That's what I'm talking about... something free.
We than sat at the bar and had more drinks. Our feelings are mixed at the moment...
We are keen to find an apartment and settle in.... We have had some positive correspondence from a potential house and will be looking tomorrow. So fingers crossed with the apartment.
Also tomorrow we will be visiting the Acadia Park which is supposed to be amazing! Hopefully we will see some moose or even a bear? Who knows. All I know is that I am excited to explore and see these beautiful trails that everyone rants about. Also tomorrow we have the social for the uni.
The welcome international students night and Jordan is also invited by the uni!
We are excited to get a place and settle in and also meet some people to know what the deal is around here
We also learned that we missed Bob Dylan perform on the waterfront by 1 day!! There are plenty more summer time festivals which are coming up and we cannot miss!
Jordan will perhaps have some part time work helping out at a tattoo shop for some cash!
Fingers crossed with the housing situation and safe travells in our hike!
Missing family, friends and pets!!!!
