New York by foot, ferry and a bike in 6 days by Wild Geckos

We took a bus from Boston and arrived in New York midday Sunday 11th of September. It was 15th anniversary of the 9/11 and I must say being here during this time and visiting the site a few days after the memorial services was a very emotional experience.

I understand that you could do and see way more during 6 days but we’ve learnt from our South East Asia adventure that when it comes to long term travel if you over do it you will have to take some time off at a later stage anyway. Also we just wanted to take it a bit slower and truly get the feel for the city. Walk the streets, feel the atmosphere and enjoy it as much as we can.

Boston in 3 days by Wild Geckos

Boston¬†was founded in 1630 by¬†Puritan settlers from England. It is one of the oldest cities in America and it is a place where America’s first US chocolate factory was created, first public park¬†and public school were¬†established (in 1635) and Harvard the¬†first American university has been¬†formed (in 1636). Boston is Massachusetts‚Äô capital and New England largest city. It’s known for its Colonial past, it’s role in the American Revolution, Atlantic coastline, changing autumn foliage and forested mountains.

We found the city to be incredibly relaxing and laid back. It’s true what some people say that Boston feels much more like a big town than a buzzing city. Beautiful parks, lovely university yards, stunning alleys and townhouses, hidden gems and lovely people. We had 3 full days to see this, click more to see our photo-story¬†of Boston.¬†Read More

You get to see everything with new eyes. Everything is fresh, new and exciting. First American house, first American fire hydrant, first American trucks, first American flag, second flag…

Being back after a trip of a life time

It’s February. 2016. New year. The most amazing journey¬†of our lives¬†(so far!) started¬†almost a¬†year ago. It’s also not ‘this year‘ anymore it’s ‘last year‘… unbelievable how time flies… It’s been about 5¬†months since we’ve been back and it has been the most amazing and horrible 5¬†months. Being back from a trip of a life time is hard. Obviously we are talking about ‘first world problems’ hard,¬†nevertheless, it’s been tough. Why? Ok¬†there we go…
