UTRECHT, THE NETHERLANDS
We were thinking about taking a day trip from Amsterdam and after doing a lot of research, we decided to visit Utrecht, which is only a 30-minute train ride away from Amsterdam. We fell in love with this little town the moment we arrived there. Utrecht is one of the Netherlands' oldest cities. It's smaller and less crowded than Amsterdam. The center is very compact and almost all points of interest are within walking distance. We arrived there on a Sunday morning while there were almost no people around and had a couple hours to enjoy the silent streets of the city. The weather was perfect that day - gray overcast skies - not too hot, not too cold. After doing a little bit of walking around we had lunch at the GYS cafe (the food there was amazing!) and had coffee at 30 ML coffee roasters.

I had been dreaming about visiting Amsterdam for such a long time, and this year my dream finally came true! Amsterdam was everything I'd imagined it to be and even better. It was one of those trips when you fall in love with your destination the minute you step out of the plane. Out of all cities I've been to, Amsterdam is definitely the most beautiful one, with its unique architecture, lovely coffee shops and many canals. Unfortunately, it was a short visit, so my husband and I decided not to spend our time visiting museums and doing other "touristy" things. Instead, we ended up just wandering around the streets with no final destination in mind, stopping for quick coffee breaks, and taking pictures of every bicycle standing next to a pretty door.

SUMMER IN KENNEBUNKPORT, ME
This summer we have continued to explore New England. Recently we decided to spend a weekend in Kennebunkport, ME. I can't believe that I've lived in Boston for 4 years and haven't had a chance to visit this cute little town before now. It is incredibly charming.

WEEKEND IN STOWE, VT
A couple of weeks ago my husband and I went on a little weekend getaway to Stowe, Vermont. I love taking a break from city life from time to time to just enjoy nature and small New England towns. Vermont is beautiful, for sure. I wish we could go up there more often! We got to stay at the newest boutique hotel in Stowe - Field Guide - which belongs to the Lark Hotel collection. And this place was so charming!
