Gaby’s Guide to Maine

Wow – it’s been a minute since we were able to do a travel guide!! But we’re back! So let’s kick things off with a guide to Maine!

Our trip to Maine was DELISH. We consumed approx 10 lobster rolls within 4 days, a few dozen oysters, countless cocktails and many other incredible bites. It was the perfect quick summer trip and I wish we would have stayed for weeks. Below you’ll find the highlights from our time in the Portland, Biddeford Pool and Kennebunkport area!
