9.7.2016 O Canada~

The morning begins with a trip to Denny’s. The place I’ve heard so much about. The combo platter I got included eggs, bacon, hash browns and pancakes… a recipe for disaster. Surprisingly after all that I was very happy and full instead of sad and bloated. The pancakes in particular were better than expected.

Satisfied with our breakfasts we set off to the Canadian border. We  decided to take the Peace Bridge from Buffalo across to Canada. The border control went extremely smoothly. We only had to show our passports and answer a few basic questions about our trip. It took les than five minutes to cross the border.

Back with familiar measurements, we set our destination to Port Dover at random. We decided to take some smaller roads to see more of Canada on our way. And we did. Dunnville, a giant power plant and many many windmills and a biker gang stopping an entire intersection.

In Port Dover we had lunch. After some circling we found a nice small place with a, outside balcony. I had my best lemonade so far, perfect amount of sugar and a real taste of lemon. Food was tasty but a bit overcooked. I heard the salad was perfect though.

From Port Dover to London it was time to look for an accommodation. Wich proved to be more difficult than expected. All hotels seemed to be full for the night. After three or four tries we found a Days Inn with available rooms, smoking ones unfortunately. The day was getting late so we took the room but soon found a party going on outside of our window. Luckily we were able to relocate to an other room across the hall and finally got some sleep! Great service from the hotel staff.


7.7.2016 Chicken skillet, please!

The day goes by pretty uneventfully.Most of it spent in the car driving from Albany to Buffalo. Originally the plan was to stay the night in Syracuse, but since there was still plenty of time left in the day we decided to drive all the way to Buffalo to avoid the weekend traffic to the Niagara Falls. This way we could explore Niagara on a Friday instead of a Saturday.

In Buffalo be walked to a nearby Greek restaurant called The Towne restaurant. I got myself a chicken skillet with sweet peppers and rice on the side. Was very pleased. The food was tasty although bit too salty for my taste.

Someone already had a bite to eat…
