Travel to the USA - Big Apple New York & Washington DC ✈
WerbungWhen Pennymarkt airline tickets were offered in the US USA , I did not miss this opportunity and spontaneously bought 3 pieces. 2 of them I sold on Ebay. This financed the trip. After my landing at sunset in New York with -6 hours time change, brought to my great surprise, a joy in
A few days later I drove to Washington DC. There I visited, among other things, the white house. It is surrounded by a high fence, is closely guarded and much smaller than I expected.
Then I let my gaze wander over the area from the Washington Memorial before visiting the Capitol and taking a guided tour.
The next day I spent in the interesting Museum of Air and Space. Among other things, the movie "Night at the Museum 2" was filmed here. As in the US since the terrorist attacks, there were also security checks like at an airport.
In addition to many other museums, I also visited the Museum of Natural History here. Unfortunately the movie "Nachts im Museum" was released later and was not known to me at the time.
Back in Devon, I decided against traveling with Grayhound a few thousand kilometers to visit San Francisco, Los Angeles, Holywood or Chicago. Instead, I preferred to use something useful with my friendly hosts and went for a walk in spring weather. In the process, I discovered a BMW motorcycle shop, which increased my desire to finally ride a motorcycle again.
To my great joy, my German driver's license was recognized and off we went with a F650 GS. The following day I made an exit with the brand new BMW 1200 GS. Some time later I took the train back to New York via Philadelphia and Trenton, more specifically to Terminal 4 of JFK Airport from where my flight back to Germany started. As a single passenger, I was fortunate to be seated in a fully occupied Boeing 767 aircraft on a free seat in the comfort class when checking in. The flight went smoothly apart from the fact that we were again late.
