Blogs from Intercourse, Pennsylvania, United States, North America


Well, we are only a few days away from embarking on our westward adventure. Our US map has been hanging for nearly a year. Without even trying our general route became very clear. We plan to head to California through the northern states - down California - over to Utah - and back Home via Rt 66. I know there are a lot more details missing from this route, but I can promise you one thing. The twenty-four days on the road will seemingly fly by as fast as I typed the above sentence. The last few months have brought on a lot of preparation. This includes, but not limited to making reservations, ordering tickets, making repairs on the camper, adding new features to the camper, riding our bikes and walking a lot to get our ... read more

TODAY WE DISCOVERED INTERCOURSE AND IT IS AS CLOSE TO PARADISE AS YOU CAN GET !!!! Now that I have your attention I am talking about Intercourse, Pennsylvania and Paradise, Pennsylvania.

Intercourse, PA: Now, ever since I first saw a postcard from Intercourse and giggled I thought it would be fun visiting. It’s probably the juvenile part of me talking, but I just have to.

So we packed up and drove to Intercourse as a friend wanted us to get a Photo there for them we were then going to go to Lancaster to see the Amish but we did not need to there were so many farms and people in buggies that we had so much fun there. We then went and found a place to stay and then went to the family cupboard a Amish and Mennonite restaurant the food was great and reasonably prised. On our way in a Mennonite family of 9 came in to have dinner the mum dad and a grandad they had 6 children 5 boys all in traditional dress and a 2 week old baby they looked very sweet and that dad talked to me while they were being waited to be seated. ... read more
