The first time in New York. First impression? It’s very noisy and busy here! Last night we visited Times Square; our hotel is just a few blocks away from the square. Today we’re going on the hop on hop off bus and visit the hot spots of this place, like Wall Street, Ground Zero and the Empire State Building.

Yesterday, after landing at Niagara Falls airport, we found out that the airport would be closed from 10.00 – 16.00 due to an airshow… That was not part of our planning, but it also gave us the ability to do something unplanned.

After a long and perfect evening in Nashville, we are on our way to the first big city that we will visit: Chicago. It was a very long night last night; therefore I hopped on the backseat this morning and let the Kooy-boys fly me to the next destination. The landscape isn’t really special. There’s one thing that’s clear though: there’s still a lot of construction going on. On our track we saw a lot of housing development sites.
