#LTselects: the inn at hastings park

You know how after you get home from a trip, the very first question from friends and family is, “What was your favorite part?!”? And have you noticed that, for some reason, no one ever seems very receptive to, “EVERYTHING!!!!!”? Realistically, though, if you weren’t forced to answer on the spot, you probably do have a favorite. Whether it’s a hotel, a restaurant, or a single moment, these are the things you’re going to think of first when you look back on a trip. All of this is to say that today, we’re introducing a new feature that we hope will highlight the best of our best. There were so many things we loved about our…

a perfect day in boston

Perhaps the most exciting part of our #LTeastcoast adventure was that we finally made it to a city that’s long been on our list: Boston. Staying true to our itinerary-free way of traveling, we didn’t have anything specific on our agenda except eating our weight in lobster rolls and clam chowder. Unfortunately, we also didn’t have a ton of time in one of our new favorite cities, so we decided this would be the perfect excuse to re-introduce a feature from many moons ago when weekend escapes were our travel drug of choice. Are you ready?? Join us for a perfect day in… BOSTON We set up shop for the weekend at the Nine Zero, a boutique…

foodie break: @BONDBoston1

How can it be that our #LTeastcoast tour was over a month ago? ‘Tis sad, but true, and now all we can do is reminisce about our weeklong summer reunion in the good ole U-S-of-A. One thing we can’t stop thinking about: all of the delicious meals we ate along the way. Among our favorites was a night of wining and dining at BOND on our first night out in Beantown. Located in The Langham hotel, formerly the Federal Reserve Bank, BOND was the perfect introduction to historic Boston. Converted from the bank into a luxury hotel property in 1981, the interior of BOND, with its high ceilings and grandiose decor, is the perfect place for a…

sneak peek: #LTeastcoast

It’s hard to believe, but we’re already two cities down on our grand tour of the east coast. Today, we say goodbye to the Big Apple and head north to Beantown. How have we been spending our time so far? Eating and drinking, of course! Last night, the wino spent happy hour at Gallow Green in Chelsea and dinner at Toro, while the romantic took a stroll through Central Park and met friends uptown for dinner at Busters NYC. While we’ve spent the majority of our time visiting our old haunts and shoving our faces with American-ish food that the romantic and the hubs have missed so dearly during their time in France, this weekend we head…

#LTeastcoast: philadelphia, new york city, & boston

Surrrrprise! After four months apart, the romantic and the wino are reunited and ready to cause havoc in the good ole U-S-of-A. Since we’re feeling super patriotic (we DO drink Budweiser, after all), what better way to celebrate the July 4th weekend than kick off a seven-day tour of the historic east coast? As you may have guessed, we’re hitting up some of our old favorites. But don’t despair, wanderlusters — we’ve added a brand new city into the mix as well. Check out our itinerary here, and be sure to follow along on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter as we make our way up the east coast. Part One: Philadelphia Where we’re staying // To kick off…
