After all the emotional sturm und drang of the past few weeks, we are off for a little holiday next week. This summer, we are not vacationing in the Alps, or Provence, but in two equally beautiful and exotic (to me) spots: Vermont and Cape Cod.
I grew up in California, so New England has always held a special allure. Even though I’ve spent two summers in Vermont, both sojourns were at the Middlebury College Language School, where I was immersed to my eyebrows in Chinese vocabulary words, or French verb conjugations. As a result, I couldn’t properly explore the Green Mountain State’s lakes and breweries, its hiking trails, local farmers and cheese-makers. (Never mind that I wasn’t, you know, allowed to speak English.) This summer, I’m so excited to return under my own steam, with a rental car and map!
I’d love to know: What are your favorite things to do (or eat!) in Vermont or on Cape Cod? Aside from canoeing and eating cheeseburgers (Vermont), and searching for lobster rolls (Cape Cod), I’m not really sure where to go, or what to do. I’d love to hear about your favorite spots!
P.S. Where will you spend your summer holiday?
