So excited, this weekend, since of course I can’t travel all day every day like I wish. Like I would just love to leave my ordinary boring and mundane life behind, to be an Au Pair and to teach English around the world. I would truly be happy if that was the way that I made my living. But, for now, since I can’t, I decided that fun and small little weekend trips whenever I get the chance and have the time off would be nice. I need to look at the pieces of time that I have vacation from work and see what I can do with them.
This weekend, I am taking a small break from life. I am heading to Vermont, some place that I have always wanted to go. I think that I could use the time away, to clear my head, to gather my thoughts and of course to re energize myself and rejuvenate my life. I would be quite happy sitting beneath the trees or counting the stars at night.
Honestly, the type of traveler that I am, I am neurotic. I have every aspect of my vacation planned down to a T. Every detail. I look at places that I would like to eat, things I would like to see and do and experience while I am there.
I will be going to the Mad River Valley section of Vermont. I am really excited, to get away from life for a little bit. I want to see if I can do a technology cleanse this weekend. I want to go back to the basics of life and enjoy the scenery. I found this great itinerary for things to do in the Mad River Valley. It can be found here. For one thing, I plan to do some gliding with Sugarbush Gliding. Of course, weather pending. We’ll see.
I might even take a drive down to Lake Champlain. Maybe try some real Vermont Cheese and some real maple syrup.
I might even look at going Paddleboarding while I am in Vermont: http://web.vermont.org/Recreation/PaddleSurf-Champlain-5555
I really would like to check out Church Street Marketplace. http://web.vermont.org/Malls-Shopping-Centers/Church-Street-Marketplace-3093
There is even this great 4 season flipbook for the Mad River Valley: https://issuu.com/resortguides/docs/mrv_flip_book_2016
I have heard that this restaurant is quite good, so I may have to try it: http://www.pitcherinn.com/dining/275-main/.
I actually looked over the menu, and my mouth has actually started watering: http://www.pitcherinn.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/275-Menu.pdf yummy in my tummy.
Since I am not currently dating anyone, I deserve to take myself out and treat myself once in a while, right?
And it is certainly not a trip to Vermont without visiting a sugaring company.
Rain or shine, I am really looking forward to this.
I may even return to Vermont in the Fall for Fall Foliage and to ride on one of the sled dogs and even go ice climbing.
