22 Jun Fueled by Dunkin’ and Adventure
I would say I have experienced more of the United States than your average person. I grew up in Southern California, went to college in Ohio, worked in North Carolina, and now I am working in Rhode Island. I’ve got to say, Rhode Island is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. From the accents to the drivers, it is a new world. I am extremely grateful I am able to experience someplace brand new and live somewhere I’ve never even visited before! I love going out and exploring what the Northeast has to offer on my days off. One thing you must know about New England is that they die by Dunkin’. To all you Starbucks fans out there, you won’t find one out here. I am trying my best not to get addicted and buy Dunkin’ coffee everyday, and it’s taking all of my will power.

One place I visited was Fenway Park. The historic ballpark with the famous “Green Monster” is home to the Boston Red Sox. I got to watch the Red Sox play their rivals, the New York Yankees. It is a beautiful place to watch a ballgame, although I will say Dodger Stadium is still the best.
Arguably my favorite place I’ve visited so far is Newport, RI. Growing up in California, I have a love for the ocean. Last summer, when I was working in North Carolina I was living right on the beach working at a Surf/Marine Biology summer camp. When I say right on the beach, I mean right on the beach. My typical Monday was spending the whole day on the beach boogie boarding. I have missed that access to the beach since leaving NC and I thought that the beaches in RI were going to be mediocre at best. Thankfully, I was wrong. I have gone to the beach both weekends and the sun was shining and the water was clear! Nothing compares to a day at the beach for me, and I am so thankful that I have found out that RI has some great beaches! Just gotta pray that the weather cooperates!!
