Since I left home for my Great Escape, I’ve been doing monthly roundups of my adventures filled with anecdotes, private little moments, and thoughts that are found nowhere else on this blog. As this site is not just a resource for other travelers but also my own personal travel diary, I like to take some time to reflect on not just what I did, but how I felt.

One of the highlights of my too-short stint stateside was a brief visit to Martha’s Vineyard. Anders’ visit coincided with my mom and I’s preplanned time there, and I could not have been happier to show him around what I consider to be one of the quaintest, most charming spots in the United States.
As we stepped off the ferry and I felt that warm rush of being in a familiar, favorite...

This week I had the absolute pleasure of visiting my mom’s new old house in Martha’s Vineyard. She somewhat spontaneously bought one of the Oak Bluffs “gingerbread houses” — as my sister and I called them growing up — after our trip last summer and has poured herself into the renovation process since. I can’t wait to do a full before and after post!
I loved showing...

Our little road trip started out in Vineyard Haven, where we were staying. One thing I love about Martha’s Vineyard is the lack of...

Martha’s Vineyard is one of those places on Earth where a little piece of my heart is permanently placed. This quaint little island off the coast of Massachusetts is host to so many of my most precious childhood memories, and today I found out it will he home to many in the future as well (more on that announcement later!)
What is it about Martha’s Vineyard that makes it such a special...

Isn’t it amazing when a cluster of your passions come together in some awesome travel-tastic way? Like a dessert festival in a foodie’s favorite city, or the Hawaii Ironman for athletic island-lover. For me, one of those moments of bliss happened this summer at Jawfest.
Jawsfest seamlessly tied together three of my favorite things — movies, Martha’s Vineyard, and mouthy fish (also...

This week found me back in Albany, piecing together upcoming plans… which will be revealed in an upcoming post! There are a lot of changes going on here in Upstate New York as both the weather and the mood starts to shift from summer to fall. It’s been a fantastic summer here at home, but it’s time to get on the road again.
One night this weekend I popped over to the...
