While most girls in their 20s enjoy an NYC New Years' Eve partying it up in barely there mini dresses and drinks in hand, I wanted to explore and get out of the city and find a place to relax and re-energize for the new year.
Even though it was below freezing, deciding to visit Cape Cod in for the New Year was one of the most beautiful experiences I’ve had in a long time. With so many locations to explore and small towns to see, there are so many reasons why you should visit Cape Cod in the winter.
One of my main goals this year was to travel more. As much as I love going out of the country, there are so many places right here in my own backyard I have yet to be able to see. One of the best tips I received was to start off by visiting friends – so, that’s what I did. Luckily, one of my friends lives in one of the most beautiful places in the country: Falmouth, MA.
Traveling is one my favorite things to do. I always pack my favorite pieces, read up on the place I am headed to and pack my camera making sure its charged for maximum tourist photos. Except for the moments when your camera decides to not work. Luckily, I had my iPhone in hand and was able to have a great time in Cape Cod. You’re welcome Apple for the free advertisement.
The turkeys: let me tell you about these god forsaken turkeys! First, let me say I was shocked and kind of excited to see wild turkeys just roaming around like pigeons on New York City sidewalks. Then things got real. I don’t know if it was the warmth of our car or the fact they could sense my fear, but they would not stop surrounding us. Needless to say, the next time I see a turkey I want it to be a part of my Thanksgiving feast.
All in all, I’m happy my brother and I decided to do a road trip for New Years Eve this year. I got to spend it with old friends and some truly special people. This year, I decided not to make any resolutions. Instead, what I chose to do is fulfill all the goals I’ve set for myself to be the best version of me I can be. Stay tuned for where I travel to next!
