Hello there! Glad you stopped by. My name is Danielle Hines and I’m a newlywed and a resident of Bangor, Maine.
I believe that I can best illustrate the purpose of this blog by telling you a story. My husband spent a good chunk of his youth in Arizona. Just a short two hour drive would have brought him to the majestic, awe-inspiring, and beautiful Grand Canyon. But the funny thing was… he never went.
The funny thing about locals is that we rarely seem to find the wonder in the very places that surround us. We get caught in a rut of going from home, to work, then home again. We spend months and months planning and saving for vacations to take us away from that very rut. But this is Vacationland!!! We are the very destination that so many scheme for months to be able to come to.
So I offer you an alternative (not to vacations on the whole, I love those – this is an alternative to the dreaded “rut”), why not try adventuring right here in your home state? What better way to spend weekends and days off, than to take a short drive and experience something amazing. Who knows, you might just find your favorite place on earth, it’s out there waiting for you.
So join me! Within the pages of my blog you’ll find date night ideas, outdoor adventures, and unique destinations you never knew Maine had to offer. Grab your coffee and lace up your Bean boots – together we’ll discover and explore this great State of ours.
