3/13: MAINE

And here I am back at blogging about my US trip.. Honestly, I really find myself too slow in posting my adventures because 1) choosing which photos to post is like a major life decision hahaha 2) editing also takes time and 3) my creative juices seem dormant. In short, I'm just lazy! LOL.

Moving on from my "excuses", my third stop was in Maine. Just like Massachusetts and New Hampshire, Maine belongs to the New England region. So you probably understand now why my friends and I chose to have a weekend getaway to Maine. We only had two days, well not really two full days because most of the trip was spent on the road, to explore Maine so we had it planned already on where exactly we would go.

Our first stop: PORTLAND

While searching about Portland prior to the trip, the photos of the city were really enticing already. What more in person, right? So when we arrived in Portland and walked around the downtown area, every corner for me was picturesque even it was rainy that time. At night, it wasn't as lively and as busy as New York or Cali but I appreciated the peacefulness exuded from the place.

I love the vibe of cobblestone streets!


According to the US National Park Service website, Acadia is called as the "Crown Jewel of the North Atlantic Coast".  If you love nature, then Acadia is a must visit when in Maine. For adventure lovers, you can try hiking or mountain climbing activity. There are really various ways on how to maximize your experience in Acadia. It just depends on one's interests. Too bad we only had a day to go around. If only we had few more days, we could've seen more of Acadia's beauty. (For more info about Acadia, click the purple text above.)

Maine is popular for its lobsters so there's no leaving this place without even eating a lobster dish! Lobsters are a bit pricey so we opted to try the lobster roll instead since we were on a tight budget.

Maine's famous lobster roll! So tastyyyyyyyy!!

I wish I could do this kind of road trip again with these crazy yet awesome girls! And by that time, I hope it'll be sunny in Maine. :)
