Martha’s Vineyard Travel Guide

Since moving to Boston my boyfriend and I have been super fortunate to visit Martha’s Vineyard a couple times. Close family friends of my boyfriend have a house on the island and have invited us up and showed us the truly incredible place it is. When I first heard of Martha’s Vineyard I imagined a preppy paradise full of hydrangeas and ultra wealthy people, but in reality the island is so much more. Gorgeous rolling farmland, home to a beautifully rugged coast and a Native American reservation. While tourism is a dominant industry, so is farming and fishing, there are tons of local art galleries, pottery studios and photographers. It reminds me a lot of Brittany in France in all the best possible ways. An gorgeous escape into nature featuring some of the best farm produce and seafood you can find on this coast.

Of course if you are looking for a beach getaway filled with Vineyard Vines ( yes it is from here!) and hydrangeas you were not misled, the island features all that and more!

A Weekend in Olympic National Park, Washington

I just got back from a long weekend visiting my boyfriend in Seattle, and this time we thought we would switch it up and explore more of the Pacific Northwest! We planned a bit of an impromptu trip out to Olympic National Park and it turned into an amazing weekend! Seriously insane landscape, very cute little towns and great local food! Have you ever been to the PNW?

Three Days in Dublin

Day One 

We left for Dublin nice and early and so got in before lunch. We started the day by orienting ourselves Temple Bar ( where the bus from the airport conveniently drops you off). Temple Bar is the main touristy area of Dublin, full of stores, restaurants and stores. While a lot of the stores are just modern mall stores, the buildings themselves are old and the streets are cobblestones which is beautiful. If you wander a little away from the main strip you can get lost in some beautiful old alleyways.
