When the air starts to become crisp and the leaves begin to change, it’s time to take a trip to Maine. It’s an iconic time of year for an iconic region. Maine is beautiful in the summer, but it gets even better in the fall when the entire state erupts in vivid shades of red, orange and yellow. But fall colors aren’t the only reason to visit Maine in autumn. Maine is also the land of delicious butter-soaked lobster rolls, and it’s the living postcard of lighthouses dotting a rocky coastline and blueberry patches. There is more than one way to enjoy Maine fall foliage this autumn. In this post I’m going to share with you some useful tips to plan your perfect Maine fall getaway.
Best White Wine to Pack for Your Next Picnic: Starborough Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc 2017 Marlborough, New Zealand
Yay it’s October 1st!!! Fall has arrived and that means two things: less crowds and great weather. And a perfect time of year for a picnic! The leaves are starting to change color from green to orange/red/yellow which adds the dramatic backdrop. You have the location for your picnic all set: the perfect tree sitting in a nice meadow-perhaps on top of a hill-with lush green grass underneath. Not too hot and not too cold-in a word, perfect. Perhaps it’s at your local park, lake, front lawn or even backyard. Picnics are all about the food, company, and of course, the perfect wine to pair with all of that. I have been trying a lot of affordable and picnic-friendly wines of late, and today I want to share my favorite picnic wine: Starborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017, New Zealand.
After a long day, almost all of us want to end up in a bedroom that’s relaxing and a restful place. Your bedroom should be a serene oasis where you can escape all the hustle bustle. When the room is clean, organized, and full of things you love, you’re more likely to enjoy the time you spend there. We spend up to a third of our lives sleeping, so it’s important to choose great bed sheets that are comfortable and durable. Your linens should be comfortable first and foremost, with style coming in second! When it comes to the sheets, splurge!

Many travellers want to travel to Cuba to touch the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, taste the Cuban rum and world-class cigars, listen to the infectious street music, learn about the history of tobacco, and simply soak up the country’s 1950’s back-in-time appeal. However what draws people to the tropical Caribbean island of Cuba is much more than beaches and antique 1950’s cars. It is a beautiful country, but more than anything else it is interesting, mysterious, difficult and challenging.
Cuba, unlike its neighbors, has been fractured by Communist rule that makes travelling here frustrating. Independent travel in Cuba, away from cruise ship excursions and guided tours, is not easy, but worth the challenge if you are curious enough to dig deeper. It may test one’s patience; yet, you cannot help but fall in love with Cuba and wishing to eventually go back and uncover more of its charm.
