Tips for the perfect camping trip! As Wayward Wanderers, we love camping! Camping in Maine is one of our favorite things to … Keep Reading
I’ve been to events in a lot of different places and it’s pretty much the same advice everytime but these tips for Gillette Stadium are going to help out a tremendous amount in making your trip more relaxed. I wish I looked in to it a little before I went to the One Direction and 5 Seconds of Summer Concert.
This is what the stadium looks like BEFORE the thousands of people show up. It changes a LOT!
I hope my tips make your event stress free and more enjoyable!
Last night, August 9, 2014, One Direction was the only direction at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, MA. What a crazy amount of screaming young girls and I was one of them! Everywhere you looked there was a One Directioner wearing their love on their clothing or in their hair. It was great! To be a young teen again, so in love with your idols.
Gillette stadium has never had so many people their in love with so many young men. 10 performers rocking the stadium! I could feel the risers on the Putnam Club Seating level move as the crowds went crazy. I don’t think a single person was sitting, especially as the night continued on…
Saturday arrived very early for us! We couldn’t wait to leave Bangor, Stephen King’s house and the states behind us! We were on our way to Prince Edward Island and still had many hours, miles, and things to see before we got there! My grandparent’s A-frame in Anglo Tignish, Prince Edward Island was open to us starting on Saturday and I was anxious for Bill to see it so we got on the road as soon as possible.
Coffee from Dunkin Donuts… our last one for over a week no less ( 🙁 ) was all we needed to get us going.
We took Robbie for a little walk around the hotel parking lot where he was in heaven! Dogs stayed for free at this hotel and so there were plenty! And with them, plenty of “Dog-booking” as Bill calls it. Once Robbie’s curiosity was met and we took a few pictures (always pictures!), we were off!
THIS trip is what I’ve been looking forward to for a year! And finally it arrived! Prince Edward Island is near and dear to my heart because of my family and childhood memories of the island. I couldn’t wait to share it with the one I love! Our plan was to go last year but time constraints got in the way. It was great to have anticipation build though. And after 4 years of being away myself, it was time to get back there.
My grandparents quest for land on PEI as a vacation destination in their later years turned out to be an endearing act for their family. It’s been nearly 4 decades since the A-Frame was built and over two decades since Gram and Pop were with us but their “spot” has been enjoyed by many. Their children all get a slice of heaven and this year, a portion of my mom’s was reserved just for me and my love. Romance, adventure, relaxation and a whole lot of wandering were the package deal for us!
The camp “shares” run Saturday to Saturday but we couldn’t wait to start our journey! So on Friday we packed up the car and hit the road! Through a combination of travel apps I found a really good deal at a hotel in Bangor, Maine for Friday night. The app saved us over half of what we would have spent and it put us 5 hours closer to our destination! PLUS, Bill got to see Stephen King’s house.
What a concert and evening last night was! Four really awesome bands performed last night at the Boston House of Blues. Uncle Kracker, Sugar Ray, Smash Mouth and Blues Traveler out did themselves at this unique and small venue!
Everything about the night was new to both Bill and I. Even the ride in to Boston was a different way than normal. We went through a great little town, Wellington, MA and didn’t hit any rush hour traffic.
We found parking near by, got there with a half hour to spare and enjoyed the short wait until the doors opened. I’d never been near Fenway Park so it was exciting to be waiting outside of the House of Blues across the street from the entrance! The photo to the left was our view directly in front of us. The Prudential building really stands out with a perfect summer evening sky behind it!
