Camp has now officially ended and so my real travels can finally begin! Whilst at camp I decided to go on a trip with a company, instead of organising everything myself. I decided this partly because it meant that I could see a number of places in the US (even if only very briefly), and the fact that it means that I don’t have to worry about organising how I’m going to get to places and where i’m going to sleep each night. The company i’m going with is called Trek America, the website is below if you’d like to have a look.
I decided on the trek called ‘Atlantic BLT’ which goes to nine different places in 13 days. This suited my time frame, and also you you sleep in hostels and hotels on this trip instead of camping, which I have to admit I don’t enjoy doing for more than a couple of nights at a time. The only slight problem was that the tour closest to the end of camp was fully booked, meaning that I had to keep myself busy for about a week before the tour started. Of course, this isn’t a problem with New York City so close by!
The night camp finished I stayed one last time with Lyanne in Fishkill. She and her dad then very kindly agreed to drive me to another friends house in New Jersey – seriously, these people are incredible!!! And so, my American adventures could officially begin…
