The American Dream #4 / Boston Marathon.




The first few days have been pretty stressful but now we are based in Boston and looks like we are going to stay here for more than a day. The guys at WOO sports have their office here, so in the morning we visited the HQ and then we hanged out with them all day. The weather hasn’t been like in the past days, it was rainy and 15ºC but it sure was a big day in the city, as today the Boston Marathon was taking place downtown during the whole day, so we decided to check it out.
We’re not sure yet about the plans for tomorrow but we might head to the WOO HQ again where I could maybe get some homework done before we get on the road again.

Oh! I got lucky enough that WOO hooked me up with one of their devices,
Thanks guys!

The American Dream #3 / Niagara Falls.




We had planned the Niagara Falls for today so we woke up at Sam's house and his mum had breakfast ready for us, so we ate that and left around 8am. We got to Niagara a few hours later, the falls didn't disappoint me at all I have to say, there is so much water going so fast feels powerful. The falls are right in the border so in one side it's Canada and the other America. The Canadian side looked better as it has a C shape and you can get closer to the falls. 
Once we had the falls done we went across the US border right there, we both were pretty nervous as you never know when coming into the state side and even though a 16 year old away from school looks suspicious they let us in. As always "Drive Thru" at Tim Horton's for lunch and started the journey down south. After driving for like 8 hours today we made it to our next stop, Boston. Things get wild on road trips when in the car so imagine Sam and I trying to figure out what to do. Tomorrow we look forward on watching the Boston Marathon and doing some more sightseeing here in the city.
Cheers from America!

PD: There is Wi-Fi at the gas stations in America.

Today's "Same but different" -> I found out there is different towns with the same name and that's… I don’t know you decide what to think.

The American Dream #2 / Canada isn't so cold.



We woke up this morning at 6:30 am and the plan was to visit the CN tower in Toronto and also do a little bit of sight seeing in the city. We did the classic “Drive Thru” at Tim Horton’s for breakfast and made it to the city by 9am. I though I would have to wear winter jackets and that kind of stuff but I got surprised by the sunny and warm side of Toronto today! 
The CN tower it’s the highest building in the whole city and everything looks tiny from the top at 432m high, even the massive skyscrapers you see so big from the streets. After the tower we did a visit to a local Best shop as they had a swop running, it’s awesome to find a kite shop in a place like this where Kiteboarding isn’t as big. The day went by really fast, we had lunch in town with Sam’s aunt and then headed back to Orillia where we still had to finish packing and getting ready for tomorrow as we are heading south on route to the Niagara Falls and Boston! 


Stay tuned!
