Unfortunately, the time came for me to leave Ottawa, but it’s definitely on my list of places to return to in my life. The sites, the food, the city. I will definitely be going back. Fortunately, my next stop was Syracuse, NY where my friend Nickola is a college senior at Syracuse University. The drive was only two and a half hours, but it sure was eventful, drove through 2 snow storms and got stuck behind a couple of plows for about 30 miles as well.
I got into Syracuse on Sunday and the temperature was beginning to drop, so Syracuse was cold and windy. I can’t say that I explored Syracuse. I was there for two nights and spent most of the time drinking, relaxing and eating. It was just what I needed. Traveling, especially at the pace I’m going can be exhausting, so I was very happy to have some down time. To anyone who knows Nickola McCloy it will come as no surprise to you that we didn’t spend a whole lot of time sober, but drank lots of beer, and wine, and whiskey instead.
I did get to catch up on my this blog, which takes more time to write than one might think. I also got to see Shameless, which is the hilarious show that I’m addicted to. We ordered out almost every meal, and I did have some delicious pizza and a few delicious sandwiches. Nick also lives with 4 other girls, all of whom were hilarious, and all of whom had sorority events and parties all weekend so I got to see them stumble in various states of oblivion.
All in all, not a very adventurous stop, but very fun and relaxing. Next stop is Buffalo, NY to go see Niagara Falls!
