Travel {Burlington, VT}

I’m officially giving up on the idea that I will be writing regularly during this stay in Vermont. But I hope you hang around and check in occasionally because the only reason I’m not writing as much is because so many things are happening and going on.

This past weekend we decided to do a little day trip on Saturday to the nearby town of Burlington which is roughly 2 hours away from where we are. I helped with the navigation and what did I see as we were driving along to Burlington? That the Woodchuck Hard Cider Brewery was right off of the road we were on! So of course we had to stop and we did a little self guided tour but sadly we weren’t able to do any tastings because I didn’t bring my license and look perpetually 18. A little further down the road we ran into the Magic Hat Brewery! We stopped in for a second but quickly continued on our way again.

Burlington is a beautiful town on Lake Champlain and for some reason when Carson told me about it I missed that part and was that much more excited when I started to see the beautiful water. Amy had given me a list of different places we should try to see there (thank goodness – less research for me!) so we tried to hit as many of those as possible. We started with the Skinny Pancake (we got a nutella, banana and strawberry crepe yum!) and a walk on the water.

Then we were off to the Church Street Marketplace which was kind of like a Trader Joes on steroids. They had a little place where you could grind up your own peanut butter, almond butter etc. As well as a giant section of spices that you could get any amount you wanted of.

The only un-glorious part was the fact that there was no rhyme or reason to how the books were organized. We spent a good hour in there and then decided to grab sushi at Hana in the next shopping plaza over. We weren’t sure how the quality was going to turn out but we both loved our food!

And on that great note we headed home! What’s your favorite adventure that you’ve stumbled upon?

  1. oh that book store sounds awesome! but i’d need hours in there if they weren’t organised, that sucks! i am always looking for something specific, so if it isn’t organised i don’t know what to do with myself lol.
