Sunny skies, calm and clear blue waters…

It was a lovely day for a cruise at Lake Champlain in Burlington, Vermont. We arrived a little early for the boat ride, so my hubby and I walked around the waterfront and reveled in the beauty that surrounds us.

The Spirit of Ethan Allen started boarding, we were welcomed by a friendly crew who gave us directions to our table. Music was playing, champagne glasses were clinking, the buffet was waiting!

The food was delicious! My favorites were the Vermont Maple Sausage and the Brunch Potato Gratin (sliced potatoes baked with cheddar, smoked gouda and Vermont cream). We were torn between getting more food or taking photos of the lake. The boat will only cruise for 90 minutes, and we already spent half the time eating. So, we decided to have one more dessert before we headed to the upper deck.

I felt the cold wind on my face when I got into the open-air deck. I was glad that we bundled up for this fall weather. We were able to stay outside and enjoy the view of Lake Champlain – nestled between the Adirondack Mountains of New York and the Green Mountains of Vermont.

It was a smooth and relaxing ride. The cruise is definitely a “must-do” for anyone visiting Burlington, Vermont for the first time. It’s a fabulous way to learn a bit about its history, drink a glass of champagne, chill, and enjoy being out on the beautiful lake. 

My hubby and I had a wonderful time aboard the Spirit of Ethan Allen. For more info about the various cruises at Lake Champlain, click here.

NY Minute: 7 Things You Must-See at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Hi everyone!

My name is Fritzie. I’m passionate about writing, photography, and traveling. I am married to the love of my life, Abraham. We both love to travel and explore new places. 

One of our favorite places to visit is New York City. We only live a few hours away, so we love to take day trips to the “Big City” and check out the different spots.

Last spring, we decided to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET). I’ve always wanted to visit the MET and see the various collections from around the world. The museum has over 2 million works of art!

I know it’s impossible to see everything in one day. So, I did a little research and made a must-see list. Here are some of the amazing pieces of art at the museum.

1. The Temple of Dendur

EgyptIan Art, Gallery 131

2. Ugolino and His Sons, Jean Baptiste Carpeaux

European Sculpture & Decorative Arts, Gallery 548

3. Buddha of Medicine Bhaishajyaguru (Yaoshi fo)

Asian Art, Gallery 206

4. Washington Crossing the Delaware, Emanuel Leutze

The American Wing, Gallery 760

5. Self Portrait with a Straw Hat, Vincent Van Gogh

European Paintings, Gallery 825

6. Manuel Osorio Manrique de Zuniga, Goya

European Paintings, Gallery 633

7. Young Woman with a Water Pitcher, Johannes Vermeer

European Paintings, Gallery 964

It was fun trying to find these must-see pieces from a treasure trove of masterpieces. Overall, the whole experience was so surreal. I wasn’t prepared to be transported to another place in time as I walked through the different galleries.
