We enjoyed a most wonderful visit with a couple from Holland, this weekend. They were in the USA on business when all air traffic was halted due to the eruption of Iceland’s Krakatoa volcano. When stuck in Newark New Jersey, what is there to do?….According to our guests; “work some and visit New England”! And so they did. After visiting several sites in New York, they decided to head for Southern Vermont. While visiting the Gallery Northstar in Grafton Vermont, ( firstname.lastname@example.org )they asked if there was a place the owners Ed & Kim would recommenced to stay for the night. Kim called us and told us of their story as a heads up….sure enough, minutes later Nathan & Marye walked in, visited for the night and the next day scheduled another night. The two of them enjoyed the sites surrounding Vermont’s best romantic Inn as rated by Yankee Magazine 2009 ….yes, that is us, Inn Victoria in Chester Vermont! They went horseback riding, shopping, enjoyed Woodstock Vermont, and best of all….they loved the walk to nearby restaurants in Chester Vermont.
It was sad to see them go, for they were a charming couple, expecting their first child. I was quite impressed by their love of life….they didn’t allow a week stuck in Newark New Jersey to slow them down, they made the best of it and enjoyed every moment.
We wish the two of you the best, Nathan & Marye. Safe travels home.
