2/13: NEW HAMPSHIRE

New Hampshire is probably one of the underrated states in the East Coast. Personally speaking, little did I know about this state but when I was placed at a summer camp in New Hampshire, it had a special place in my heart.

It was my home for three months. It was where I met wonderful people. It was where I stepped out of my comfort zone. How is that so? I  will further elaborate on it on a separate post which will be my save the best for last post about my US trip. For now, I will just talk about the places I got to visit during my stay in New Hampshire.

BEDFORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE

Bedford is a suburb tucked in the city of Manchester. This is where I spent most of my time in New Hampshire since this is the location of my camp. Few minutes away from my camp is a trail which leads you to a nice view of a pond set against the lush trees.





MANCHESTER, NEW HAMPSHIRE

It's the city where I had my first experience of watching a live baseball game.




Grabbed some cookie dough ice cream at Ben and Jerry's :)


Here's a bird's eye view of Manchester City atop Rock Rimmon Park.



PITTSFIELD, NEW HAMPSHIRE

My friends from camp and I had a very warm stay here. Special thanks to Michele Tailon (a good friend we met from camp) for opening her home to us and for taking us to places such as parks and blueberry farm.








SALEM, NEW HAMPSHIRE

I got curious about America's Stonehenge so I asked my friends if we could visit Salem. Honestly, I wasn't that impressed with the stone structures but what tapped my interest was how the stone structures can be used to refer as an astronomical calendar and to determine astronomical events like lunar and solar eclipse. I'm not very knowledgeable about astronomy but it's quite interesting.








CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE

I thought I was going to leave New Hampshire without visiting its state capital but thanks again to Michele for driving us here and touring us around.

I'm sure there are more places worth visiting in New Hampshire. Next time!
