The Sea & the Mountains: My Week in New England

New England does not disappoint when it comes to variety, which my travels to visit family and friends this past week showcased. I splashed in the ocean in Cape Ann, Massachusetts, and my ears popped (and my jaw dropped) in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Both locations make for lovely day trips/overnights from Boston, so I thought I’d share.

Two Days in Sintra, Portugal: A Magical Trip from Lisbon

Portugal’s old playground for the royalty and the rich and one of the most beautiful places you’ll ever see, Sintra is an easy day trip from Lisbon, but make it two days with an overnight stay. Castles galore, and a lovely walk through the woods await you at this UNESCO World Heritage site. This is one of my very favorite travel memories. Everything you need to plan your trip!
