I’m sort of mad at myself for writing this post. I always feel like a Year in Review posts are self-congratulatory BUT 2018 was pretty amazing so here I am.
I started the year at home in Boston at one of my favorite restaurant’s, Pammy’s. It’s a beautiful and cozy spot that serves great wine and even better pasta dishes. No complaints here.
Before January was over, I headed to Stowe with Skedaddle for a little skiing.
At the beginning of February, I was lucky enough to be on the local Boston food show, Dining Playbook. #casual
Mid-February I took a quick getaway to Newport to stay at the Hotel Viking.
Before February ended, I managed to squeeze in a brunch at Waypoint in Cambridge, MA.
March was basically amazing because I got to visit Scotland with Visit Britain. It was my first time visiting and I loved every minute. I can’t wait to return.
Ok, April you were a show-off just like March. In April, I was lucky enough to travel to the Mediterranean with Royal Caribbean. I had never been on a cruise and this was quite the experience. I ended the trip with my second sinus infection in 6-months, but, regardless, I enjoyed my experience immensely. Who gets to visit Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Provence, Cinque Terre, Rome, and Capri in the span of one week? Craziness.
At the very end of April, I head to the west coast for a few days in San Francisco. SF is one of my favorite cities.I got to try out some new restaurants and explore new parts of the city I’ve never visited on this trip. I also walked like 1,000 miles. The best way to get to know a city, in my opinion.
As soon as I got back from San Fran, I made my way north of Boston to Salem, MA to stay at the Hotel Salem, one of Lark Hotel’s latest additions to their collection. I also got the chance to try Counter, the Hotel Salem’s restaurant.
I didn’t think I had enough travel in May so I head south to Charleston, SC for a quick weekend getaway with some girlfriends.
In June, I hung out in Boston and ate some delicious food.
In July, I head to Chicago and fell in love.
I also had a staycation at No. 284 in downtown Boston. This place is an art lover’s dream.
September was quiet for me. This year took it a toll on my health so while I spent some time on my wellness, I took it easy on traveling and eating. I did, however, manage to leave my house a few times.
October was beautiful in New England. I wanted to head north a bit so I planned a stay at the Pickering House Inn in Wolfeboro, NH.
I didn’t have enough foliage so I head to Camden, Maine for a stay at Whitehall. I also ended up discovering one of my favorite restaurants, Long Grain.
I’m exhausted just thinking about October, but before the month was over I took an epic trip through the South with The Luxury Collection and the FeedFeed.
December was a little of everything – Boston, food, and travel. It was the perfect way to end the year.
I ended the year in Quebec City which was charming and beautiful. A great way to end 2018!
Woof! That was my 2018! Travel and connecting with my city is so meaningful to me. I didn’t go into this thinking that this post would inspire my 2019 travels but it did. I can’t wait to explore, taste and see more in the year to come. And thanks for following along on my adventures!
