Vermont Travels

I have been craving a Vermont adventure. We love to get in the car on the weekends and just drive aimlessly through backroads until we hit Vermont. Before meeting Mike, I had never been further north than Massachusetts. I had no idea how beautiful and peaceful it would be. I love the tree colors changing in the fall and the golden hour in the summer. The small town corner stores and the small shops with hand made goods. Vermont is one of the most relaxing places to go on a whim!

We had stopped in a small store in the middle of Jamaica, Vermont to grab a water and some snacks and to our surprise there was a whole band in there supplying the tunes. Honestly, only in Vermont!

A Day in New Hampshire

This fall, Mike and I took a ride up to New Hampshire one Sunday. On a street corner in the middle of the mountains was a farm stand selling fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables. Do you see the size of those carrots? That potato? The corn sweet and crisp. These were, hands down, some of the best farmstead veggies I had ever gotten. I used most of the content of this box to make an Irish beef and Guinness stew.

Growing up in New Jersey with a family primarily from Brooklyn, going to the mountains wasn’t really a thing. We didn’t ski, we didn’t do any other winter sports so we never made the trip. It wasn’t until I met Mike that I went up to the mountains in New England for the first time. At first I was nervous and skeptical (ridiculous I know). I soon fell in love with the peaceful and airy surroundings and the views that go on for miles and miles. Now, I’m the one poking Mike begging to take a drive up there, especially in the fall. The Kancamangus Highway and Mohawk Trail two of our favorite spots to cruise on a sunny Sunday.

wooly wonderland

This fall, I was lucky enough to travel back to Ireland for a week. It was so amazing seeing a different part of the country from when I was last there. The Irish are such wonderfully kind and welcoming people and are always down for a pint and chips. I dream about the day I’ll return once more to this beautiful fairy glen of a country.

I could not have gotten luckier the day I went to the Cliffs of Moher. The sun was shining and the wind and sea were calm.

We stayed at the Brook Lane Hotel in Kenmare, about a 10 minute walk to the downtown. The staff was extremely knowledgable and gave amazing recommendations of sights and activities. This was truly a trip to remember.
