Well my friends, I’ve been living in Baltimore for around a month now. Obvi, I’ve still got plenty more to learn about being a Maryland resident full-time but, I must say, I’ve made a few discoveries in the short time I’ve lived here.
Here’s a highlight reel of some faves. If you come visit me, let me know which you’d like to see together!
First, I arrived here just in time for Canada Day! We headed to Clark Burger to see if their poutine lives up to the genuine article. (It does and it’s delicious.) We were in good company with a number of other Canadians indulging in the name of patriotism. So funny.
Of course, immediately following Canada Day is American Independence Day so I had to try my best to blend in with the crowd in red, white, and blue on the 4th of July. Luckily, the American Visionary Art Museum was hosting a dog/cat show with plenty of fur babies in costume. I was right at home.
I’m still looking for some good off-leash dog trails (hit me up with suggestions) but am having fun checking out some of the local options. Rigby thoroughly enjoyed romping through the river of the Gunpowder Trail.
One of my July highlights was having friends visit and heading to an Orioles game. It was so fun but what I’m REALLY looking forward to is seeing the Blue Jays when they come to town at the end of the summer.
Another highlight was the Artscape art festival. It was humongous! Art exhibits, installations and performances as far as the eye could see. Very cool.
I’m still discovering the little hidden gems that every city reserves for those to stumble across.
Although I’ve moved to new places already a number of times in my life, this is the first time I’m living in a whole new country. What sorts of things do you look for when you’re settling into a new place?
