“Welcome to New York it’s been waiting for you,” There was no better way to fulfill an itch for something new by visiting Ithaca, New York. It may be 340 miles away from home base, but it was worth it. There is no place more beautiful than here. Rolling hills, sprawling green forests and adorable paint chipped farms. The weather was awfully kind to me this time, allowing me to enjoy every last beautiful view. The Ithaca College campus was no exception complete with clean buildings and pleasant staff. While in town I discovered the well acclaimed Ithaca Ale house. The ‘Perfect Burger’ was huge, but did not disappoint. And while I am on the quest for the best French fries, those of the Ithaca Ale House will have to be heavily considered. I then enjoyed a warm breakfast in bed the next morning. I unfortunately was not able to see the Buttermilk Falls, but have heard that they are beautiful and would definitely recommend. Big thanks to everyone that participated in this trip it was truly worthwhile. Even though I didn’t get to take nearly enough pictures on this trip. Can’t wait to see where the wind takes me next.
