I have been out of London for over a week now. I flew to Boston on the 12th June and have been exploring stunning New England, USA.
I write this on my way to my next destination: New York City. New England has treated me amazingly, i didnt want to leave!
I stayed with my friend and family in Westbrook Maine (near portland); and was overwhelmed by its beauty.
Untouched by tourists (really – i didnt meet anyone but americans here), this was the place to get a real authentic experience!
But look out for more posts coming soon on what really makes this place so amazing.
One of the best things about Portland is the seafood.
This is where the Lobster Shack comes in. It was a Tuesday afternoon and the queue was out the door.
If its good enough for the locals, its good enough for me!
Perched by some rocks on the sea, this is the perfect place for some good seafood grub.
The staff are just as friendly as the locals here (which might i add, are the friendliest people i have EVER met), and the food is even better.
It was only obligatory for me to try the famous lobster roll and a bowl of clam chowder…
Which, may i add, is mouthwateringly good. Dont be decieved by its looks: this is a bowl of warming seafood goodness.
I would eat it again right now if it wasnt for the fact that it turns out i might actually be allergic to shellfish… funny story that! But it was totally worth it.
So that is my first reason to visit Portland, Maine. The seafood is pretty darn good.
Keep reading my posts for more of my travels in America, this one is a bit short and sweet but I have some more amazing things to show you from Maine, Massachusetts, New York and California coming soon.
