Fullofshoes is the “New England Road Trip” Contributor

ourroadToday we’d like to introduce you to fullofshoes.  She’s our “New England Road Trip” Contributor.

Tell us a little bit about your niche topic.
Back in the early days of my career I was the unofficial “designated tour guide” when employees came in from out-of-town. Most often requested was a tour around Boston with occasional requests for recommendations and directions to more scenic areas; I was always happy to oblige.

Lucky for me and ultimately for them, I’d done my share of travel in and around all 6 of the New England States from the time I was old enough for my folks to take for rides in the car.

Even now I’m asked where to go and what to do when folks want to visit. The internet has made it so easy for people to explore the region from the comfort of their own living room so my map reading services are less in demand but I’m always available for lost souls who don’t like asking the gas station attendant “which way to I go?”

Tell us about the moment you fell in love with your topic. Was it an immediate thing or did it happen over time?
I’ve lived in New England all my life and when it comes to travel and exploration, I inherited my parents’ wanderlust and penchant for learning. I think road tripping and exploring just happened over time; it’s been a way of life.

Exploring New England is one of my passions but I’ve also been lucky enough to travel throughout the United States by plane, car, and bus — never afraid to go anywhere, but always happy to return home.

Who had the most influence in your life?
My parents of course… they loved to be on the go and weren’t afraid to jump in the car and just take off. Every summer we took the mandatory 1 week vacation and there was always to another place in New England to explore … that we’ve never been before.

I had an old boss that also influenced my love of travel. He sent me here there and everywhere which served to feed my need to be off and running.

    I have always heard there is nothing as beautiful on this earth as a road trip through the New England states during the fall months. That is truly on my own bucket list of things to do. I look forward to everything you share with us. It will, no doubt, help me make a plan.
