It’s been while since our last post but not for lack of news. This long weekend, for instance, we’re on our furthest road trip yet to Portland, Maine. Both Katie and I are here for business as well as pleasure – Katie is scoping out the law school at the University of Southern Maine for a potential exchange, and I’m meeting with a local architect about a potential internship.
On the pleasure side, the trip has been amazing. Both Maine and Portland are beautiful and, contrary to the forecast, we’ve been able to enjoy some sun and the blossoming parks. Always interested in food tourism, we’ve gotten to try the likes of The Holy Donut and Mt. Desert Island Ice Cream (which apparently was a stop of choice for the president). Venturing a little ways outside the state, I got to see the Phillips Exeter Library in New Hampshire, a very famous building in architecture circles (though closed for our visit). On our way back we took the scenic route, checking out a few beaches and coastal communities.
At the moment we’re hold up in a coffee shop while the long-awaited rain is coming down outside. The perfect time to look through some photos and post a few words before my meeting this afternoon.
Wish me luck and an ironic Happy Canada Day!
