Getaway: (a) an escape or quick departure, especially after committing a crime, or (b) a vacation [P.S. I’ve committed no crimes I’m aware of…]
In a few weeks, there are two people who will have a birthday and are planning to go away for a long weekend as a way to celebrate. The original plan was to stay at Mohonk, an upstate NY estate, but it’s too expensive for a two-night stay without a ton of things to do in the area when we wouldn’t have a car for that location. Instead, we’re currently researching a few places in New Hampshire and/or Vermont for mid-March. The plan is to fly one direction and take the train for the other direction. We’d rent a car for the weekend once we arrive in the destination. I’ve been researching a few small towns to visit, but can’t decide which might be the best for a charming bed and breakfast or hotel. The goal is to explore some lovely historic areas, mindlessly window shop, enjoy local foods, and relax. We’re not looking to ski or skate, as that’s a popular thing to do in the winter, on this trip. It’s more a getaway to see a different part of the country in an area we’ve always wanted to visit. We’ve also been watching re-runs of Newhart, which was set in that area, so perhaps that’s why!
If you’ve got any recommendations for a few towns to visit, a place to stay, or a must-do while up there (besides try some maple syrup as that will happen!)… send ’em over, please. Thanks… and feel free to share any other short getaway trips you’re taking, too.
About Me & the “365 Daily Challenge”
I’m Jay, an author who lives in NYC. My debut novel, Watching Glass Shatter, can be purchased on Amazon @ http://mybook.to/WGS. I’ve always been a reader. And now I’m a daily blogger. I decided to start my own version of the “365 Daily Challenge” where since March 13, 2017, I’ve posted a characteristic either I currently embody or one I’d like to embody in the future. 365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life.
The goal: Knowledge. Acceptance. Understanding. Optimization. Happiness. Help. For myself. For others. And if all else fails, humor. When I’m finished in one year, I hope to have more answers about the future and what I will do with the remainder of my life. All aspects to be considered. It’s not just about a career, hobbies, residence, activities, efforts, et al. It’s meant to be a comprehensive study and reflection from an ordinary man. Not a doctor. Not a therapist. Not a friend. Not an encyclopedia full of prior research. Just pure thought, a blogged journal with true honesty.
