I'm a 37-year old Seattle girl who was bitten by the travel bug on my first tour of Europe in 2004. This personal blog follows my attempts to visit as many countries as I can, as often as my budget will allow. Since starting this blog in 2007, I've also worked as a freelance copywriter for an online travel publication. This only served to add even more must-see locations to my already extended list.
Follow me as I try to balance "real life" with exploring the world, all while trying to conquer a wickedly ironic case of homesickness.


East Coast is calling

We're starting to plan our 2010 autumn holiday to the East Coast US. So far, we know we're flying into Washington DC, then take the train to Philadelphia, New York City, and Boston. We also want to spend some time in one of those "quaint" New England coastal towns. So, East Coast natives and enthusiasts, TALK TO ME! Recommendations, warnings, favourites, advice...bring it on!

I really don't know that much about New England. I've never been north of New York City except for a fly-in, one night stayover at an Air Force Base in Mass.

But in 1965 when we had just moved to Maryland, my jr. high school did a trip to the New York World's Fair. You might enjoy checking it out. It's about 20 miles east of Manhattan I think. Here's a Google Maps link to it.

Before you go to Massachusetts, read The 'The Widow's War' and 'Bound' by Sally Gunning! Good stuff!

If you are coming to Boston, you are going to want to stay in either the Back Bay or the waterfront, because that is where the action is. Trying to think what someone who has never been to Boston would want to do. Walk the Freedom trail or at least parts of it, have a meal in the North End (Italian), take a walk around stroll through the Public Garden.

Warning: public transportation in Boston is inconsistent, especially the buses, but sometimes it is best to take them rather than the crazy cabs.

Quaint New England coastal town? Try Rockport (my first choice) or Newburyport on the North Shore.
