From roadtrip to boattrip

Thanks to labor day, our second week in New Paltz started with a road-trip to Boston and Cape Cod. Renting a car in New Paltz is easy and fairly cheap. But finding a cheap hostel in Boston at labor day weekend was far more complicated and as we experienced: Impossible.

Luckily, we found a boat on that fit our limited budget. The boat was located in Boston Bay Marina. With the water taxi you get to the center in 15 minutes. The view is simply amazing and you can see the skyline of Boston from the water and take unique pictures. And the best about it was that it is free.

In Boston, we visited the main attractions, such as the USS Constitution, Harvard University and of course the food courts. On Sunday, we went to Cape Cod, which is only 2 hours away from Boston. Here, you can hang out at the beach, enjoy the little stores and cafes or – as we did – go whale watching.  It was a great weekend and I’m already looking forward to the next trip.

Hello Mr. President!!

Hi!! The weekend from February 16 to the 18th, Marce, Blanca, Lucy, Nora, Pontus and I decided to visit Washington D.C. We visited the main attractions such as The White House, US Capitol, Lincoln Memorial, Washington Memorial, WWII Memorial, Air and Space Museum, and some other interesting places!! I had the opportunity to visit a friend who studies in Georgetown and she showed us the university and it’s surroundings. Everything is so beautiful, totally worth it!! Even though it was really cold we had a great time.

Here are some cool pictures about our trip and our beautiful hostel.

Road trip to Boston!!

For our first weekend in New Paltz we decided to rent three cars and drive all the way to Boston, Massachusetts. We barely knew each other and we were already going on a trip all together. It was so much fun!! We stayed on a beautiful hostel, we went to a nightclub, and visited the most important attractions in Boston. We also visited MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and Harvard, both universities are incredibly huge and beautiful!!

We had such a great time and it was an excellent opportunity to get to know each other outside the Super 8 and the university.

Here are some pictures of the trip!!
