I have not posted what I have worn each day but suffice to say that I stayed within my guidelines, apart from the addition of my dress due to the warm weather.
Since it is still relatively warm I have decided to swap in 2 items. They are the black dress with white spots and this pair of lightweight cotton trousers.
Thinking ahead to the next 3 months, I will be including these walking sandals in my 33 items. They do not get worn often (as evidenced by the dust) but they are great for when we are travelling.
Speaking of travelling – that was the reason I did not post this last night. I was busy working on our itinerary for our trip in August/September. We have finalised the first 10 days and have accommodation booked. The rest is still a work in progress and I am more than happy for any personal experience or local knowledge.
August 20 – Arrive Washington DC
August 21 – Washington
August 22 – Washington
August 23 – Washington
August 24 – Philadelphia
August 25 – Philadelphia
August 26 – New York City
August 27 – New York City
August 28 – New York City
August 29 – New York City
August 30 – Boston
August 31 – Boston
We plan to travel between these segments by train and walk/use public transport for getting around.
Then we intend to hire a car and tour for the next 12 days. My plan is something like this:
Leave Boston, travel via Wilton and Bangor to Bar Harbor. 2 nights in Bar Harbor. Travel to Portland and stay 2 nights.
Drive through Rhode Island and Connecticut, stay on Connecticut coast for 1 night, possibly Branford.
Travel to Woodstock, NY – stay 2 nights.
Drive to Saratoga Springs for 1 night.
Travel through Bennington, VT to Charlotte/Burlington for 1 night. Dive to Gorham/Mt Washington for 2 nights – travelling via Stowe.
1 night in a town ?where that is not too far from Boston then drop car off in Boston and catch train to Washington DC.
Final night and half day in Washington DC before flying home.
Please feel free to comment on any aspect of this. Bear in mind that we have never been to the US so this has all been planned from maps, the internet and a few ideas from friends.
I am keen to hear of any car hire suggestions.
