The Sunflowers of Newbury

The Sunflowers of Newbury

Sunflowers are one of the last types to bloom and definitely are a herald of summer’s last days. Cooler weather and early sunsets are on their way! Colby Farm in Newbury, MA has been using these beautiful flowers to make a carpet of yellow every fall for the last 12 years. People travel from all over New England and even the Northeast to catch a glimpse of them! Luckily, this year we had a good amount of rain and pleasant…

Hotel Christian IV

Hotel Christian IV

  Going into our trip to Copenhagen, we were certain of a very few things… We wanted to see a castle We wanted to have a good location for walking the city We did not want to stay in a hostel I know a lot of people looooove staying in hostels for a variety of reasons. You get to meet a lot of other people, they often have organized events, and sometimes have a little cafe or restaurant inside of…

Autumn Fills the Air

Autumn Fills the Air

Yesterday, we decided to be tourists in our own backyard and join the crowds going to view the beautiful foliage of New Hampshire before it was too late.   We were blown away by the views!     After buying our tickets, we waited in line for only a little bit. There are two tram cars that take 80 people each in a ride that takes about 10 minutes each way to the 4,100-foot summit for views that can’t be beat….

3 Tips for Surviving the Bright Angel Trail

3 Tips for Surviving the Bright Angel Trail

We were recently lucky enough to hike in the Grand Canyon, specifically Bright Angel Trail to Indian Garden. Now, while we did not go all the way down to Phantom Ranch, we did learn a few things about the trail that we will remember for our next trip. 1.  START EARLY! Man is it hot in Arizona in May! When we landed in Phoenix, it was predicted to be a high of 104 degrees Fahrenheit. For two New Englanders, this…

Trail Report: South Moat Mountain

Trail Report: South Moat Mountain

In an effort to get in shape for our upcoming hike to the Grand Canyon (want to help us raise money for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society? Donate here!), we have been trying to hike more. Unfortunately, though there has been little snow or ice in the Boston area, it has been a slightly different story in New Hampshire. While in Albany, NH for a stay at the Darby Field Inn (review coming soon!) we decided that we wanted to go…

Goodbye 2015, Hello 2016!

Goodbye 2015, Hello 2016!

What a year it has been!   Between the record snows of February curtailing almost ANY travel, even to the grocery store, to my first attempt at a ropes course and chasing fall foliage throughout New England, it was a great year. It saw us attempt (and successfully complete) our first ever 2 country trip (with plans to go back!!) and use our local beaches on an almost weekly basis. 2015 was pretty darn great. 2016, though, should be amazing….

Last Gasp of Beauty

Last Gasp of Beauty

As Autumn breathes one last gasp here in New England, I’ve been chasing foliage every chance I have been able to find. Though it is past peak in many parts of Northern New England, Central Massachusetts was exploding with color this last week. Taking advice from my cousin, Joe, I wandered off to the Quabbin Reservoir to see if I could find anything worthwhile. I was pleasantly surprised by not only the beauty of Boston’s water supply (more on that…

Photos with Wolves

Photos with Wolves

Last year, I received a request from my niece to take her on a birthday trip to the New England Aquarium.  A really loves animals and spent the day staring at the penguins, leafy dragon seahorses, and giant fish there in amazement. This year, I decided our trip would be a little bit different. I had heard about a sanctuary up in Ipswich, MA that I thought would blow her away; a place called “Wolf Hollow.” Recently, A has been…

Relay for Life

Relay for Life

Another relay for life is in the books. We didn’t stay past lockdown, though, because of the rain. Can’t have a man with leukemia out in that weather, nor the 5 kids. It was a fun night again, though. This one was very well organized, except for the fact that the lumineria bags kept catching on fire. Had to stamp out one myself in front of our tent. Looking forward to next year already. Want to donate to my team…
