The Beauty of Maine [in Photos]

Mike and I just returned from an amazing week-long New England road trip. The impetus for the trip was a family member’s wedding in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. But a wedding is always a good excuse for a longer vacation, especially for two travelaholics like us!

We were staying with my aunt’s friend, Brett, outside of Boston for a few days. Since he didn’t have to work on Sunday, he offered some ideas for a day trip we could all do together, one being Maine. I’ve always wanted to go to Maine. In fact, Mike and I had even talked about starting our RTW from there. “Maine?! But isn’t that far,” I asked. Apparently not. Brett said it would be a short drive and make a perfect day trip. The three of us got into his SUV and spent the day on the road. Brett, the amazingly kind and generous host that he is, ensured we saw it all by taking Mike and I to some of his favorite southern Maine spots.

Mid-October was the perfect time to visit because the autumn weather is a little cool and the leaves are turning brilliant shades of red, orange and yellow. Between the coastline, lighthouse and lobster roll, I had the perfect first visit to Maine. Thanks, Brett!

  1. Oooh, I’d love to visit Maine one day! It looks really stunning and who can say no to lobster rolls? More and more we have been talking about taking a U.S. roadtrip when we’re done touring through Asia & Europe… there’s just so much to explore!
