Winding the Coastal Scenic Byway of Massachusetts

Winding the Coastal Scenic Byway of Massachusetts

The North Shore area of Massachusetts is a gem in this state, characterized by rocky beaches and harbors, quaint fishing towns, history, and fantastic seafood. I was lucky enough to attend college at Endicott College in Beverly, Ma, located right on the ocean in the North Shore. What I didn’t do while I was there was explore much of the surrounding area. I’m now 6 years out of college and I finally made the trip out to drive the Essex…

I couldn’t possibly touch on all of the things to do in and around…

5 Architecture Destinations to Visit in New England

This post was originally published on Phase Zero Design‘s blog on June 4th, 2018. See the original post here.   When most people think of New England, they think quaint colonial style towns, or Federal-style architecture from the early days of America, but there’s much more to this region than that. From the Bauhaus style architecture of Walter Gropius and Philip Johnson, to the Gilded Age mansions on the Newport coastline, there’s a wide variety to explore.

Adventure Diary: 27th Birthday Weekend Wanderings

Adventure Diary: 27th Birthday Weekend Wanderings

  As we kick off the new year, I have been debating on how exactly I want to organize my blog going forward. In 2017, I tended to not really follow a plan and just post sporadically as ideas came to me. However, the initial reason I started the blog was to chronicle my adventures and that ultimately got lost. So I’ve decided to create a series called Adventure Diary where I can basically do a quick journal entry of…

As someone who gets hit hard with the winter blues, it’s easy to curl up in a ball and Netflix the winter away….

The Art of the Long Weekend

The Art of the Long Weekend

If you are a 9-5er like me, you are probably limited to a set amount of vacation days per year. This doesn’t mean that you can’t go anywhere though. Most Americans are trained to take their one week-long vacation per year then sit on the rest of their vacation days until they roll over to the next year. Weekends are then spent catching up on chores and errands that they didn’t get to during the week. Sounds pretty depressing if…
