Got up early again and decided to search for a hostel in Burlington, Vermont and surprisingly there was one. Not many hostels in the United States unfortunately.
I hit the road, and Apple Maps leads me into another toll road again. These tolls are getting more and more expensive. So I take the first exit out of the toll road, pay $0.90, fill up for gas and take the back roads. I know it will take considerably more time, but time is what I can afford. Money is more scarce on a budget.
My friend Chris who grew up in Buffalo advises me to drive by the finger lakes. The Buffalo residents who I met yesterday (Stephanie and Gilbert) advised me to do the same. The toll road forces me to take an alternative route and drive past it. I guess I am going through the finger lakes.
The first lake I pass is Lake Canandiagua. The weather is cloudly with a chance of rain, but the view is wide and wonderful. On google maps the lake looks tiny, but it is really wide in reality.
Lane 4 please.
Is that thing getting on in the same ferry. What???
Parked and moving.
The Burlington Hostel is very clean, and has a comfortable atmosphere. Mike gives me tips on places to check out and walk to in the area. Bathrooms and beds are clean and in order. The only negative is that they don’t have a stove top kitchen but everything else is present.
See a bench with a sign that makes me giggle.
Stop by at a restaurant, which I regretted stopping at.
Atleast the beer was good.
