Oh but the views! Those gorgeous winter laden landscapes. And I'm not even one for landscapes typically. Absolutely undeniable it is that there's something breathtaking about Vermont. I couldn't help but snap up a few photographs during our road trip. The scenery makes the ride so much more enjoyable... and bearable, being that it is about an 8.5 hour car ride.

Speaking of up north, we decided it only fitting to stop in and say hello to our fellow neighbors. In french. Ok, well I couldn't actually remember much french. But we were off to see the Canadians! What the hell. Why not? We first visited the town of Magog for coffee, where music plays from speakers lining the street at all times, and Derby Line for... what else? But to stand on the line splitting the Canadian and US border. When we arrived, we were having a little difficulty locating the infamous library which made this all possible. We stopped by the closest Duty Free shop for directions and, to our dismay, were notified that the building was closed for the day. BUT, the clerk also happened to mention that she lived not a minute's distance away and 1/3 of her property was Canadian. Yes, she pays taxes to two different countries. So bizarre! For this reason, the countries had marked her yard with a lovely little divider. She was so incredibly sweet as to invite us back to her home for an impromptu photo-op... and so that we did! I'm still trying to google map her address so that I can send a picture and thank you. Seriously, how kind hearted is she!?
