Mirror Lake Inn, Lake Placid, NY, Experience

Life in America itself is fast, everything is going very fast, everything you have, everything is at your fingertips, the opportunity to earn and spend it. Much has happened during the summer of parties, fun with friends, dates, sopingovanja, really every day was filled. Totally a different energy that prevails there, nothing is difficult, and after a day of over 10 hours, it is not difficult to stay up late and drunk by the society. Of course there must be responsibility and seriousness of the work, because every employer requires a maximum of all of us who participate in the program. It also happens to meet people who you meet in every respect, that you endorse, and is born a new unexpected love, which can take some time and lasts as in my case, for example, and I'm really happy, and I always say that things happen to reason. And then it happens fifth month, the month in which you as released with the chain on your own, eager to see everything, so much and so little time. Come with two suitcases full of stuff full of experiences, memories, at which time you'll go through it again, get a lot of new friends, familiar and see what you used to watch the films you've ever imagined how it looks, is it really so milion as many questions as answers and only one month. Each of the students has different paths, some go to the party and the beach, the southern part, mainly Puerto Rico and Miami, and some like me went through the west. So my way out of the Big Apple began the year in San Francisco. Come to California, I came into the most beautiful city in the world for me. I always had the idea that the San Francisco many beautiful city, the most beautiful, and I confirmed convinced of this. From the beautiful Golden Gate's, to the Pacific coast, from Alcatraz to Lombradi Street, Pier 39, and all other things and opportunities that San Fran offers. Wandering the steep streets, for me, was a pleasure and happiness because I'm finally here, exploring all the charms of this city, drinking beer in some of the best pubs, caused the complete satisfaction of me. After the enormous luck I take a flight to NY and return home, caused two emotions that were fighting, one wishes and luck that I am in San Fran and the need to stay, and the other the desire for a house, family. After arriving in the Big Apple, he threw himself into research, exploring the same. The days are not much different from the taxi-payments and 70 $ to the invention of our restaurants in NY and drinking domestic beer, with an unforgettable fragrance and enjoy the chevapi. NY is really a lot to offer, but honestly I did not like, it's crowded, all have much the crowd, in my not so great.

Lisa G’s, Lake Placid, New York, Experience

Only those who did not want to do further had another job. The place is small but definitely has fun . Plenty of pubs , local restaurants , club .. Those who prefer the nature of entertainment can take advantage of free days at the lake ( boat rentals , kayaks ... ) , hiking (more than 20 peaks in the vicinity of Lake Placid ) , research Museum , Olympic Centre , and the like .

Lake Placid Lodge, Lake Placid, NY, United Work and Travel

As for the extra work , the experience of people who were with me on the program are very different . Some were very simple while others had difficulties . This is largely dependent on the employers and the conditions that they are asking . That's why there are these differences . Lake Placid is located in the north of the state of New York in the Adirondacks mountains, so the air was mountain . This is one of the reasons why I chose this place for my WT experience. When I arrived there, followed by a shock , because we all occurred on the street even though they see me for the first time in my life. They are extremely hospitable all residents , even those who come just for the summer there were quickly fit into this mechanism . Nightlife is not something rich. There are several bars that have worked every night , some of them organized by the Balkan Nights ( due to the large number of people from the Balkans ) were at home (which I did not really like it too ) . Overall impression : A very happy summer with a lot of laughter and kidding

Schulte’s Family Lodge, Lake Placid NY, Experience

A small tourist town in the state of New York , located two hours from the capital of this state - Albany . Subordinated to the ( winter ) Olympic Games that were held there twice , guests are mostly athletes of various profiles , especially triathletes . There are a couple of big events that are held during the summer season , it is the place overbooked and every hotel is full. It is not hard to find another job , especially if you are seeking some in the morning shift . There are a couple of cafes that are designed for fun. Year 2013 was pretty cool for us who are accustomed to +40 , but it is hard to adjust .. Be sure to bring warm clothes for the place in the mountains and how the year goes by , the nights are getting colder ...

Ere’s pizza, Lake Placid, Experience

Lake Placid is located in the north of the state of New York in the middle of Adirodack nature park where there is still a million small lakes like Lake Placid and Mirror Lake-a. The closest Saranac Lake, and from major cities Plattsburgh is an hour's drive. Lake Placid is a very bad connected by bus lines, so it is best to find someone with a car who goes often to Plattsburg or Albany, where there are shopping centers and amusement parks. Or course, rented car. It has about 2500 inhabitants. In Lake Placid is all concentrated on Mirror Lake in along Main Street's restaurants, pubs, clubs, shops, station, hotels ... The only market out of the lake, about 20-30 min walk or 5-10 min city bus, which is free and which runs around the lake and to the supermarket several times a day. Nightlife is not so bad for such a small place on Wednesdays at the bowling alley is organized bowling evening, Thursday at Roomers Lady's night or pay for one drink another gratis, Fridays Balkan evening in the Arena, Saturday Roomers, but there are good pubs like the Wise guys-a i-Cottage with rock music and good food ... However, a better nightlife in Plattsburg and other major cities.
