New England Fall Diaries: Vlog Entry 1

On October 9th 2017, I turned 28 years old. I decided to celebrate 2-years-from-the-BIG-3-0 by taking a solo autumn trip to New England.

My First Real Solo Trip

Usually, when I travel, I either:

  1. Travel with family and friends
  2. Travel solo, but meet family and friends at the location
  3. Travel solo to an area I’m familiar with, or near an area I’m familiar with.

This time, I traveled solo to two states I’ve never been to, and met no one while I was there. Since I had no travel-buddies to take pictures of — as is my usual M.O. — I knew I would have to turn the camera on myself.

My First Vlog

In preparation for that, I bought a selfie-stick. I’m a blogger and an amateur photographer, so vlogging is new territory for me, and I really hate being on camera. But hopefully, it will all be worth it, as you guys get to see the trails in living colour, and have a bit of a one-sided chat with me.

If the video doesn’t load automatically, then you can watch it here on Facebook.

Still Blogging

For those of you who are like me, and don’t have the attention-span for watching things, I’ll still be sharing my usual travel posts in digital ink over the next few weeks — starting next Friday, the 27th of October. These daily videos I’ll be posting for a week, are just teasers leading up to that.

Thanks for watching, reading, or just stopping by! And super thanks to Elizabeth, who first suggested I take a trip to New England.

Alexis Chateau Black Cat

My trip to New England was booked by 1 View Point, our in-house travel agency at Alexis Chateau PR. My wardrobe (ASK ME HOW I GOT HERE shirts and hoodies) was designed, and sponsored by 1 View Point and Alexis Chateau PR in celebration of our #November31 campaign.

We’re providing 1/2 off booking fees this November to celebrate a year of travel-testing, and our official launch. Email us for details!

    Happy Birthday! and yay! for getting the selfie stick and doing a vlog! I enjoyed seeing the beautiful environment where you were hiking ☺️.

    1. Thanks Leslie! One of my travel-buddies suggested the selfie-stick on my last trip. I had originally said no, but decided how bad could it be? lol.

      Thanks for watching! I’ll be posting a new video every day until Friday. I did 8 trails in 3 days ^_^

    2. And thanks for the birthday wish 🙂

  2. It looks calm and peaceful. Gorgeous surroundings. Great vlog

    1. Thank you! It really was. Keep an eye out for the next ones. 😊

    If you are still in NH, it’s much warmer today 😉 Hope you are having a good time.

    1. Thanks Trent! It got much warmer from Tuesday going towards the end of the week 😊 I left on Friday, unfortunately. But definitely coming back next fall. New England is stunning. I love it!

  4. What a great idea to build up to the big 3-0!

    1. Thank you! I’m looking to the 3-0! What do you have planned/did you do?

      1. I went to Las Vegas with a group of my friends! We got a suite and had a blast! 🙂

      2. Now that sounds like fun! I went to Vegas earlier this year for the first time. There’s some great hiking out there!

      3. Yes! There def is…

      4. But I see that you have already been there a couple times! 😛

      5. Oh, I’ve only been once to Vegas, but I did a few posts on the different days of the trip 😊

      6. That’s a great idea! I may do the same thing for my trip to Florida!

      7. Yup. Easier to follow since you’re not trying to cram everything into one, and you can add more details about what you did on those days. 😊

      8. Great idea! 😁

  5. Happy belated birthday and we’ll done for having the guts to go solo. 👍

    1. Thank you! It was amazing. I think I might do a solo fall trip every year going forward. 😊
