I thought I would post a travel type journal of my mini trip to Vermont. I had decided to take the next step in my dream of opening my own bakery. I had searched the vast internet for a program or a course that made sense for my needs. I finally found it with King Arthur Flour in Norwich Vermont. The 3 day workshop on opening and running a small bakery was perfect. The added bonus was a trip to the renowned mill where I have always just admired from afar.
DAY 1 – Sunday May 8th
TORONTO to NEW YORK to MANCHESTER to NORWICH VERMONT
My flight was at 2.30pm so we didn’t need to leave the farm to early. We were on the road by 10.00am. Since it was mothers day I was promised a breakfast, the Golden Arches to the rescue. We arrived in plenty of time at Pearson, security and customs was quick and the flight was delayed so I had quite the wait.
Arrived in New York and had about a 90 minute layover. Thought about getting a bite to eat but the take-a-way looked a little suspect, the restaurant looked great but I didn’t have enough time. Sat at gate and read my book and was completely content.
Arrived in Manchester to a very deserted airport and found my way to the rental car area. Picked up my bug (very excited) and tried to get my annoying GPS to work. Was having difficulty finding Norwich Vermont. I set off and hoped I was going in the right direction. With windey roads, mountains, deer and dusk approaching it was not an easy drive. Finally made it to Norwich where I checked in at the beautiful historic Norwich Inn , ate my chocolate bar dinner (wish I would have eaten in New York airport) and went to bed exhausted but extremely excited for tomorrows adventure.
