This past Sunday, I woke up to a text at 9AM, letting me know I had the whole week off from work. I called Bridget, we packed our bags and 12.5 hours later we were in Vermont. My sister and her husband just recently moved to Burlington, VT after receiving a job opportunity of a lifetime. Here’s a little glimpse into our adventure.
The first day, we hung out in downtown Burlington. It’s a lot like Charlottesville, but I don’t think you could find this boot wall just anywhere.
Katie and Stephen took us to El Cortijo for tacos. Cheap and soo yummy!
We were also visiting during their 4 year anniversary… whoops!
The next day we took off to Maine. We stopped first at Cape Elizabeth for some lunch. Everyone in Maine can’t believe lobster rolls. Eh, let’s just say I could do without.
The Lobster Shack Restaurant was on the edge of the coast of Cape Elizabeth. Everyone ate outside at picnic tables and kids played on the rocks by the water. Awesome views of the coast.
After lunch we headed to Portland, stopped for a coffee/water break and asked the people working what we should do with the only hour we had there. They advised us to take the Kancamagus highway back towards Burlington. It led us through tiny towns full of antique and thrift shops, that we stopped at all along the way. Finally we got to the highway, and explored the mountain.
This was the highest point of the mountain. When we finally got there, a few guys were having a bbq, so fun!
Our way back to Richmond was a bittersweet. I think we were both ready to see our boyfriends but not ready to leave. We took the scenic route back to 95 South and drove through the beautiful countryside of Vermont and on through the Adirondacks in New York.
Luckily we both had bathing suits because Lake George was just too awesome to not pull over and jump in for a quick swim.
Best trip! I’m definitely suffering from the travel bug now. I need a new adventure soon.
