Sunny in Salem (Part 2)

Dear Reader, As far as tourism goes, Salem, MA is kind of underrated. I say “kind of” because it is highly praised for witchy-Halloween travel, but passed over as a vacation spot during other times of the year. Recently, I had the pleasure of visiting Salem during its “off season” (aka NOT Halloween) and still... Continue Reading →

Sunny in Salem (Part 1)

Dear Reader, There are very few Halloween vacation destinations that rival Salem, MA. But is Salem worth the visit during other times of the year? Over the course of two posts, I will give you a small peak into my mid-May Salem adventure. In a spur of the moment decision, influenced by a beautiful weather... Continue Reading →

COVID Holiday

Dear Reader, Should you travel during the pandemic? Answer — no. Do people travel anyway? Answer — yes and I’m sorry to report that I am one of these people. Recently, my boyfriend and I took a car trip north to Camden, Maine and I want to share a little bit about my experience. Each... Continue Reading →

On Top of Mount Battie

Dear Reader, Not all small towns are created equal and Camden, Maine is far greater than its 26.65 square miles. Located on the water, Camden is a hub for sailing (more here), but also a great destination for hiking. A big draw to Camden is the Camden Hills State park. Most famously, the park is home...

Just the Journey

Dear Reader, And we’re off! Over the weekend, my boyfriend and I ventured north for a weekend in Camden, Maine, a coastal town. In a subconscious realization of the refrain “it’s not the destination, it’s the journey,” we ended up spending our first day "in Camden" just getting to Camden. Due to availability, we ended...

Dear Reader, This morning when I pulled open the front door and stepped outside, I was greeted by a bright blue sky and crisp autumn air. While I was still dressed in shorts, I did have enough sense to put on a light cardigan after seeing that the morning temperature was a mere 57 degrees.... Continue Reading →

Day Tripping

Dear Reader, What is there to do in New Hampshire anyway? Although New Hampshire lies less than an hour north of Boston (where I live), aside from hiking and camping in the White Mountains, until recently, I did not find the state so alluring. In fact, it seems that Massachusetts draws people from New Hampshire... Continue Reading →

Next Stop Gloucester

Dear Reader, One of the things that I love about New England is that there are so many interesting towns and cities in close proximity to one another. This week, with the aid of a rental car, I had the opportunity to visit a small number of destinations within a two-hour driving distance of Boston.... Continue Reading →

City by the Sea

Dear Reader, Have you ever visited the City by the Sea? According to Wikipedia, this is a nickname for Newport, Rhode Island. Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of visiting this small city and I had some interesting takeaways from my experience. Before I share my observations and impressions, it is important to note...

The Wheels on the Bus

Dear Reader, Are you a fan of weekend excursions? I certainly am. Near, far, or within my own city I enjoy traveling. This weekend my boyfriend and I traveled south to Newport to celebrate a nice weekend away. To get to our coastal, Rhode Island destination, we took a bus that departs from downtown Boston...
