When on Winnipesaukee (Part 2)

Dear Reader, Guess what! I am writing to you with parchment and quill (okay, pen and paper) like a Victorian-era protagonist. With a pen in hand and notebook on lap, the words are springing to you without the aid of a dictionary or a thesaurus (gasp!). For those of you who have read part 1... Continue Reading →

When on Winnipesaukee (Part 1)

Dear Reader How many of you would like a weekend to totally unplug? …I wouldn’t! I love technology and all that it has to offer, but I realize that I may not be in the majority on this one. Regardless, incidentally, I willingly walked myself into a no-tech (or rather “low-tech”) situation. With a group... Continue Reading →

Vermont’s Itty-Bitty Capital

Dear Reader, If you’re a fan of road trips, then you have probably already asked yourself on more than one occasion whether a particular spot is “worth the visit.” In my experience when a location is intriguing but there isn’t too much to do, then making a long rest stop can be just the right...

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...

The Summer of ‘20

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 →
