New Mexico

“I greeted the news that I’d be heading to New Mexico with a resounding shrug. It was the site of a friend’s wedding, and as a destination, the southwestern state meant nothing to me. It could have been Nebraska, Idaho, or Worcester, and my reply would have still been” whatever “. In terms of US travel, I’d bounced between the two coasts, but I hadn’t made much headway inland. After landing in Phoenix, Arizona, I began a lengthy drive into New Mexico, and the landscape soon let me know — this was far from Idaho. Alien, red-rock cliffs didn’t seem to belong in the U. S. S. Or even part of this planet. Huge stretches of road were completely empty. As the car’s stereo played Nina Simone ‘s” Lilac Wine, “I found myself tearing up, awed by these mighty geological walls that shifted from yellow to orange to purple with the setting sun. Without this serendipitous wedding, I would have never made this trip and learned all the magic held within the footed rectangle that is New Mexico.” Maria Teresa Hart, Editor

Wolfeboro, New Hampshire

“During a recent stay on Lake Winnipesaukee, my mom and I decided to venture to one of the nearby towns in search of groceries. Our sense of direction, nevertheless, is not so warm (and never was cell phone service in relatively remote New Hampshire), so we ended up traveling the complete opposite way — and exploring the cute lake area of Wolfeboro. There are no free tiers for this type of work, we noticed a number of small art galleries, a nice paper shop (mostly a station for my daughter on every tour), a brewing, and the better pesto I’ve had since. The latter is truly speaking something, very interesting, since I’m from the South.” Jane Reynolds, Senior Editor

“My hubby and I moved up to The Inn at Weathersfield in Vermont a couple of years ago for a weekend getaway, and he resolved he truly wanted us to be on a walk. It was a little cold out and I was much more excited about float out of the heat, but I resolved to be a good sport. Once we finished, we started the hike, it transformed out. It was truly poorly marked but it just felt like we were roaming through the trees. We both now and then heard shots from a gun club close to where We both were, but were a little concerned we might get very near. The hike had been supposed to lead to a beautiful bay, but after we surpassed a sea over a declined sign (that is very high off the ground), we decided to give up and head back. It was beautiful though, and we would be having a great time. My now husband created an even extra memorable experience by choosing the presents we’d like to recite — so now we’ll often remember the time we got lost in the trees and got married (and have yet to get around), with a single family tree.” — Kelsey Blodget, Executive Editor

Eureka, Alabama

“During a month-long cross-country touring with hubby, we created a pit stop to go with a friend in Atlanta. We supplied her with your articles about our travels so far, and she demanded so here we make our way to Eureka, Alabama. We had never heard of the position before, but apparently it was overflowing with good-looking villas with plenty of classic Southern elegance. Needless to say, her gleaming feedback convinced us to accept the two-hour excursion. Once we hit the road, our GPS couldn’t pinpoint the location — this should have been a red flag. Each and almost every time we stopped to request for locations (at the least five, incidentally), the residents at the location offered us a quizzical look and asked why we were looking to tour. When we came, we noticed run-down apartments that had been protected in Christian design from top to bottom. Some of the road signs even had bullet holes in them. Where were the barbed wire walls and stone sections I had offered? Confused, we named our buddy home in Atlanta. Turns around, she had confused Eureka for Eufala. Sadly, we never really got to dinner at such a beautiful palace. I have never heard that much about the, but I wouldn’t market the incredible discussions we had on the super-friendly residents (or the non-stop laughter we discussed with the driver and thereafter) for everything.” Alisha Prakash, Editor’s note

Toledo, Spain

“When I visited Spain last year, I considered I’d spend a few days stomping inside Madrid before traveling to Sevilla. Thereupon I met a guy, I rescheduled that scheduling and remained in Madrid. We decided to take a day tour to Toledo, an utterly charming ancient area that sat on a mountain about an hour south of Madrid. And it was the day we got stuck in the narrow alleys, consumed a lot of sweets, gazed at El Greco’s popular” The Burial of The Count Orgaz, “and has had an entirely nice, tiny period of it. But the standout of the day might have been our tour to the El Greco Museum. You can view the views, as we realized, El Greco never resided in the cottage that it was purchased and became a museum with his name. A certain few of his smaller paintings use feels within, but instead at each move is a drawing finished in the form of El Greco, pop-influenced contemporary installations, a strange attempt to place El Greco in a position he never ever occupied. In whatever example, We laughed a lot while inside — giggled as children, perhaps — and that’s stuff I’m pleased to always have discussed with someone.” — Kyle Valenta, Editor

“A handful of summers ago, a tiny citizenship mishap (my problem) quickly turned a big yearly Montreal tour into a vacation in Vermont. We can only consider each strange place to stay: a slate homestay in the landscape named the Gray Ghost Inn. Turns around, the Gray Ghost is a bicycle bed-and-breakfast, and assumes the form! This event became the vacation to a big bike event: the Vermont Blueberry Festival. I couldn’t imagine my fortune!. We spent the day boating, a, feeding pizza!, fiddling with (and protesting the desire to abducted) Great Pyrenees garden dogs, and hitting up the Blueberry block party, whereupon expended the evening floating out with the pedestrians and viewing shooting stars on the Gray Ghost’s home balcony. Montreal,?” Anne Bauso, Associate Editor

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

“After getting my passport denied, of Maldives traditions (complicated explanation), I must to make a quick choice on where to take. My hubby and I had ferried through Dubai and resolved it made sense then to return back here now. Tho the United Arab Emirates town had never been on my must-visit list, it ended being a very fascinating excursion but one I certainly enjoyed. I got to go up the tallest building in the world (the Burj Khalifa), eat delicious Arab meals, visit the jaw-dropping Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in close vicinity, and move along the beachfront whereas staring at the stunning Burj Al Arab — and all the while learning about a culture — the Sultan. It wasn’t the most elegant town I’ve ever ended up in, but it obviously has an overtones.” — Lara Grant, Associate Editor
