October in Wells, Maine

Last month, for the weekend before Halloween, we decided to take a weekend road trip to visit Salem for Halloween. We're big on Halloween, my boyfriend and I... as in, we're having a Halloween-themed wedding next year. The thing about Halloween in Salem is that it's crowded and expensive. We found ourselves asking the question... Continue Reading →

24 hours in La Capitale

Confession: I don't know how to travel in cities. Seriously. I spent the time I was in Quebec City wondering what exactly I was supposed to do. So, I did the things I thought I was supposed to do, ate an onion soup, and moved on. Don't get me wrong, Quebec is a beautiful city.... Continue Reading →

Owl’s Head Autumn Fest

Normally, I'm not a big fan of hiking up ski trails or multipurpose trails. I prefer to stick to trails in the woods.

Seriously, if your 4 year old has tripped two waitresses, been warned by another, thrown a screaming fit under other people's table...... Continue Reading →

Jailhouse Rock / Welcome Winter

When your collegues ask you on Monday morning what you did on the weekend, answering "I went to jail" may illicit a wide variety of responses, as I learned this morning. Saturday, I had the chance to visit the old prison in Trois-Rivieres, Quebec. Closed in the mid-1980s, it's opening date qualifies it as old,... Continue Reading →

Alice in Foodland / Duck and Cover

One of my favorite parts of travelling and wandering about is finding hidden little gems. Particularly when those little gems are nestled into a tiny, out of the way place, off the beaten track. Don't get me wrong, I like cities, as far as travelling goes. I've done London, Paris, Detroit, NYC, Toronto, DC, etc,... Continue Reading →
