I've heard so many great things about this state and have always wanted to visit. Over Christmas, Cliff made my wish come true by surprising me with a weekend getaway to Camden, a quaint little seaside town. We didn't go in December, because who wants to go to Maine when there's four feet of snow on the ground? Instead, we went earlier this month.
This trip was so special for both of us. Not only was it a gift to me, but Cliff's choice in getaway location was no coincidence. Camden is home to the Towne Motel, a cute little inn owned by two of his former college professors, Katja and Siobhan.
Because of our slight age difference (Cliff is four years older than me) I never had the opportunity to meet these two, but staying with them was delightful. They welcomed us with open arms and it was wonderful being able to catch up and tour the area with locals. Not to mention, the Towne Motel is perfect! It's just three blocks from downtown Camden.
Maine definitely lived up to, and even surpassed, our expectations. After visiting, I'm convinced its one of the most beautiful states in our country. The atmosphere was so laid back, the people were incredibly friendly, and the food was out of this world! What more could you ask for?
