Today we left New York. Barely over the NJ/PA state line, we got stuck in traffic due to a bad semi accident. We moved maybe four miles in about an hour and a half, which really set us back. To entertain ourselves, we collectively made a list of things we learned on this trip.
All elevator buttons belong to Sofia. If you push one without her, you may get hit.
Nothing in NYC is free. If someone says it is, it’s a scam. Michael learned this the hard way.
Emma gets “boatsick”. Emma learned this the hard way.
Canadian border guards are not as friendly as other Canadians. Don’t ask. Literally. Just don’t ask anything.
Canadian rest stops are extremely quiet. Like eerily quiet.
Bluie is smaller than an average-sized subway rat. Now I didn’t actually see this rat, but I’ve been guaranteed this veracity by half of my family at this point.
The Flory family likes lists. Obviously.
We aren’t big city vacation kind of people. We’re all just too laid back for big city life.
And finally, we learned that 11 hours in a car together is all we can tolerate. We got about three hours from home and called it quits because tempers we’re starting to flare (mine was, at least). Tomorrow we finish our journey.
