Our special weekend in Cape Cod

The destination of our camping trip location was long unknown, but then we decided to go to Massachusetts, a state that impressed us quite a lot last time while traveling to Maine. It is still warm in late September in the Northeast and, we wanted to be close to a sea. We picked Cape Cod.

After late night celebrations of Mia’s birthday on Thursday and not that long sleep due to a very early online workshop organized by Mia, we started packing. This time we decided to pack food only for traveling to Cape Cod. The rest we will buy in stores or we will dine in local restaurants. Mia prepared delicious gluten free bagels (from Aldi), carrots and tea for the road.



We took our Jeep on the I-95 and after two hours of driving or so we made a break in Rocky Neck State Park in Connecticut. It was a unexpectedly very nice and serene place.



We hit the highway I-95 until Providence in Rhode Island and then switched to I-195. We arrived to Bay View Campground around sunset and built our tent right awa…

Maine: You can’t get there from here

August 1st, Saturday 3AM. We just finished our work. The plan for our summer vacation does not exist yet and we should leave tomorrow early morning.

We woke up after a few hours of sleep, but we had to go. Quick breakfast and rapid but thorough packing. Our rental car was waiting for us in North White Plains, so we had to take a train there.



Our destination for today was in Hudson, Massachusetts, where we booked AirBnb. Almost the whole time driving in Connecticut it was raining heavily. I never experienced that heavy rain which lasted for hours. And on top of that, unfortunately, I witnessed a car drifting across several lanes.

The AirBnB in Hudson was very cozy and the hosts took all the precautions so we felt safe and welcomed. And, the rain stopped! Among the amenities in the apartment, the coffee maker was the most appreciated one.



Next morning we quickly packed and hit the road. Our next stop was Port…

Our Wedding

“When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”  When Harry Met Sally... (1989)
In the midst of a global pandemic, when the future was so uncertain, we knew that it wouldn’t be a traditional wedding. 
Our wedding planning all started months ago in our small Upper West Side studio apartment. We began planning our wedding together the day after we got engaged (but if you know anything about Mia, you would know that she had really been planning her wedding day since she was a little girl). Without all the answers and with a lot of moments of “wait..., what!?”, we began planning the day that would mark the beginning of our lives together. And like in the movie quote, we both agreed that we wanted that day to start as soon as possible, before the situation with COVID-19 in New York, and in the world, got worse.
Truth be told, the process was anything other than what we expected wedding planning would look li…
