“I shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.”
Standing along a coastline of Maine, I am reminded of 7th grade in northeast India where I first read Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem, The Arrow And The Song. Little did I know then that several years later I would be walking through the Wadsworth-Longfellow House in Portland, Maine. It’s sublime when life makes such interconnections.
Located in the northeast of USA, Maine is known for its coastlines, heavily forested interiors, moose, blueberries, lobsters, and more. You can fly into Portland to explore the city or state, or fly into Bangor if you wish to use the city as your base while you explore the different regions. You can also fly into Boston and drive up to Maine. Be warned that road traffic can be slow during the months of May through August.
During my travels in Maine, I found people to be genuine and generous.
