Back in 2014, we visited Hawaii and had a 8.5 hour layover in Seattle. With all that time, we obviously weren’t going to stay in the airport and rot away. We had checked in our carry-on luggage at the gate, so we didn’t have to roll them around. Having our hands free during the layover made getting around quickly so much easier. From the airport, we took the train out to the city, which was only about half an hour away. And from here on, we walked everywhere!
Portland, Maine might not be known for a stellar skyline, but it does have its fair share of lighthouses. They’re quite accessible by car, have free parking, and are popular wedding spots. If you’re into lounging around by the water, here are some we checked out and recommend. Big props to this site for the driving directions.
With a busy work schedule and a limited travel budget, sometimes Tie and I can only afford to travel domestically on the weekends. Hence the creation of this series of posts, “The Weekender.” This August we drove up to Maine for Lobster Fest! We are both huge seafood fans and thankfully have not yet developed any allergies to it. It’s a 5-hour drive from New York, but we’ve traveled further for food. Of course, Maine is known for its lobsters, but I had to curb our consumption of it for our cholesterols’ sake, and also mix in some other foods to avoid lobster fatigue.
