Norwich, Upstate New York

back to articles

My stay in NYC was short but sweet. Now it was time for a 4 hour bus to Norwich to visit my family. I arrived at Port Authority and had a spare few minutes to grab a bite to eat, so I took full advantage of the New York juice craze and had a green smoothie. It was delicious, over priced, but so worth it.

Once I had arrived upstate, I was greeted with homemade welcome meal. My aunt had made chicken tikka, chicken curry, shrimp curry, lamb curry, naan bread, the list goes on. She’s a fabulous cook and never fails to impress. How did she know I’d be in need of a good feed? After a catch up, an episode of Trump exposed, and a whole lot of laughter, I headed to bed.

There isn't a whole lot to do in Norwich; which was great because it meant I could spend sometime with my family and get cracking with some yoga. When I was in India a few weeks back I learnt so much about the practice and thoroughly enjoyed it. I wanted to learn more, so I found an online course that I managed to complete it whilst I was away!

The highlight of trip was heading to the Farmers Market to buy some fresh corn on the cob and maple syrup. The corn was absolutely delicious, to the point where I don’t think I’ll be able eat corn back home again. It was just so sweet and juicy, and the flavour was delicious, you didn’t even need butter and salt! Just freshly cooked corn. Yum.

And as far as the maple syrup goes, well I just had to buy some. Upstate maple syrup is so pure that it’s actually good for you; in small doses, of course. There’s still a lot of natural sugar in there! Some argue it’s even better than Canadian maple syrup.... I’ll have to get back to you on that one.

In the meantime I'll be talking to the Gurus at lifetrainme and advising my team members on, amongst other things, how to make the most of their travels without trashing the body. Remember, all this advice and more is available at lifetrainme so join up now.
