Connecticut

I’ve heard that the fall landscape of northwest Connecticut is wonderful. Covered bridges, century old farms and red dairy barns sorrounded by rich harvest colours. It’s a dreamy destination for this season, don’t you think?

I would love to go pumpkin or apple picking! I’ve read that there are lots of local farm stands where you can buy your apples and pumpkins and that the scent of cinnamon and nutmeg from the on-site bakeries is overwhelming.

I’ve always seen this kind of things in films and nowadays I read about it in lots of blogs, so I would love to live this experience at least once! I think that these popular traditions are a very important part of a country’s culture and they are a great way to undestand the idiosyncrasy of a nation.

Perfect weekend plan: after an invigorating fall hike through the forests you can sample pumpkin butters, apple jellies, sweet cider or pumpkin pies in a cosy B&B. I can totally see myself there! Look at those apples!

The fall colours are supposed to be at their peak this week, so if you are lucky enough to be in the area, you should give it a try this weekend!!!
