All in The US
My boyfriend and I are making it a tradition to go visit a place we've never been to for his birthday. Mainly because he has a summer birthday and the weather is always supah nice. But these are 10 things you must do when you visit MAINE.
1. Prepare to eat lots of Lobstah roll
I've never eaten so much lobster in my life and it's literally EVERYWHERE. It was a running joke of where was the weirdest place to find lobster roll; even McDonald's had it. I did a lot of research of "the best" lobster rolls in Portland. Our first stop was Portland Lobster Company and we were completely disappointed. The ambiance of being on the water, the live music, and beer was probably the only great thing about it. The seafood was not fresh despite being highly recommended.
So camping in mid-October in upstate New York maybe wasn't the best idea. My boyfriend, my best friend and his boyfriend all wanted to go to Watkins Glen during this time of the year for the fall foliage, plus it's low season and we were hoping the falls would be less crowded. (They were!) We drove up separately and my boyfriend and I got there first. We tried to get there before dark so we can see what we're doing to set up the tent. When we arrived, it was starting to drizzle and we knew we had to hurry and get our shelter going. (Plus this was a good test for our relationship--setting up a tent in the dark and in the rain). It was surprisingly smooth sails and we were all set. My best friend and his boyfriend arrived shortly after and got their tent set up quickly. Luckily, his boyfriend was a boy scout.
But holy shit was it COLDDDDD. . .
