Another New England Road Trip (2002)

In 2002, my mom and I took to the road again, this time heading east back to New England. En 2002, mi madre y yo volvimos a viajar otra vez, ahora al este a Nueva Inglaterra. 

My mom was especially excited as this time I could share in the driving. Mi madre estaba contenta porque ahora yo pude ayudarle con conducir. 

The first day was a long one as we drove through Kentucky, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and New Jersey to arrive to New York City around 8. I took a walk through the neighbourhood and saw actor Dylan McDermott out in the streets. El primer día era largo. Condujimos por Kentucky, Virginia Occidental, Pensilvania y Nueva Jersey para llegar en Nueva York sobre las 8 de la tarde. Hice una vuelta por el barrio y vi al actor Dylan McDermott. 

The next day we explored New York, seeing the building used as an exterior where Friends was shot and I tried to find a restaurant in Little Italy. I loved Little Italy. We also toured the NBC studios and saw Enrique Iglesias. El próximo día exploramos Nueva York. Vimos el edificio que la serie Friends utilizó como el exterior, y intenté encontrar un restaurante en Little Italy. Me encantó Little Italy. También hicimos un tour de los estudios de NBC y vimos a Enrique Iglesias. 

That night, we went to Studio 54 to see the Broadway revival of Cabaret. John Stamos was the M.C. and Jane Leeves was Sally Bowles. Por la noche, fuimos a Studio 54 para ver el nuevo montaje de Cabaret. John Stamos interpretó al M.C. y Jane Leeves interpretó a Sally Bowles.

The next day we drove through Connecticut, stopping at Yale and later Mystic to see some lighthouses, before driving on to Massachusetts. I believe we visited Cape Cod first and stayed in Hyannis at the foot of the cape two nights. El próximo día condujimos por Connecticut. Hicimos paradas en Yale y luego Mystic para ver los faros antes de ir a Massachusetts. Creo que visitamos Cape Cod primero y nos alojamos en Hyannis al principio del cabo. 

During the day, we drove out to Provincetown, making stops in several towns along the way on the Cape. We debated on going to Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard, and I believe we did take a ferry to Martha’s Vineyard to see the Kennedy Compound. Durante el día, fuimos hasta Provincetown, haciendo paradas en algunos pueblos por el camino por el cabo. Pensabamos en ir a o Nantucket o a Martha’s Vineyard, y creo que al final tomamos un ferry a Martha’s Vineyard para ver el complejo Kennedy. 

We then visited Boston and Cambridge. While I wanted to see Harvard, I also wanted to see the town where my favourite mystery series took place, the fantastic books about Holly Winter’s malamute adventures by Susan Conant. I did appreciate the older vibe of the town. Después, fuimos a Boston y Cambridge. Quería yo ver Harvard y también ver la ciudad donde los libros fantásticos por Susan Conant sobre las aventuras de los malamutes de Holly Winter tenían lugar. 

We then returned via Hartford, skipping New York and the traffic, through Scranton, Pennsylvania down back to the PA Turnpike, and through West Virginia and Kentucky. I’m sure we stayed the night somewhere in PA as Boston to Kentucky is a long trip for a day, even with two drivers. Volvimos por Hartford para evitar Nueva York y su tráfico, y fuimos por Scranton, Pensilvania hacía el sur y la autopista de Pensvilvania, y luego por Virgina Occidental. Creo que nos alojamos una noche en algún pueblo por Pensilvania porque Boston hasta Kentucky es un viaje muy largo para hacer un solo un día, incluso con dos conductores. 

It would be three years before my mom and I took another trip together, but I continued traveling, as Spain awaited me…sería tres años antes del próximo viaje que hice con mi madre, pero seguí viajando. España me esperaba…
