Since I could not go home for Thanksgiving this year, my roommate kindly invited me to spend our week long Thanksgiving break with her and her family. I am so blessed to have such an amazing roommate that I get along with so well! I could not have asked for a better roomie or friend :)
My roommate lives in the city of Portsmouth, NH. I have to say, this is one of the most charming cities I have ever been to. It has all the character of a port town mixed with classic New England style. On the water you can see the fishing boats, big and small. There is an adorable downtown with lots of cute and interesting shops along with many restaurants. My roommate’s mom runs an adorable little chowder and sandwich shop on the water. Also, the architecture of the buildings here is stunning! Overall, I love this city!
During our time here, we have done lots of adventuring! We spent time shopping, visiting with my roommate’s friends, eating incredible food, and spending quality time with her family. I was able to go shopping for all the winter gear I was lacking and am now confident I can take on the cold Vermont winters at Norwich. They took me for a drive along the Atlantic coast and I was able to see the beautiful beaches and ocean. My roommate and I got pedicures as well as bought a Christmas tree to put up in our dorm room. It has been an amazing week! I hope I get to return to this beautiful city someday!!
