I have a tendency to look at flights when I’m bored or maybe just feeling extra wanderlust-y. Just making up fake trips that I know I can’t actually go on but it technically could be possible makes me feel less stuck. Well, I was looking up flights to Boston to visit Annie again and I realized I had enough travel credits for a free round trip flight. Hello mini vacation!
The first weekend in May I flew out to meet up with my cousin in Boston and then drive up to New Hampshire to explore White Mountain National Forest and stay in a perfect A Frame airbnb. We didn’t have a lot of time - I got in at 12am on Friday morning and left at 7am Sunday morning - but we made the most of every minute.
Here’s our basic itinerary and you can follow along with the photo gallery below!
Drive to NH
Stop in Conway
Check out the outlet stores because VACATION and LLBEAN and also it was raining
Check into the airbnb

Get freaked out by “BEWARE OF TICK” signs everywhere
Get caught in the rain
Enjoy dusk on basically a private beach
Practice headstands and relax in the cabin
Find breakfast and coffee
Hike up Moat Mountain
Take in the most gorgeous panoramic views and take too many photos
Find lunch and more coffee
Took a scenic drive on the Kancamagus Highway
Stopped at Lower Falls scenic walk a small trail and view the river and falls

So much packed into barely 48 hours.
New Hampshire isn’t a state I ever thought of visiting before this year, but I am definitely going to go back when I have more time. I’m quickly falling in love with all the East coast has to offer!
