Travel Therapy: Providence & Newport, Rhode Island



This past weekend, my friend Bibi who is visiting from Nigeria, decided I needed a pick-me-up. Things have been blah on my end, and she thought I needed a fun activity. As you all know, I love to travel, so we packed our bags (rather purses), and took a day trip to the beautiful cities of Providence and Newport, Rhode Island.

 I have been to Providence a few times, but was yet to visit the Rhode Island School of Design Mueseum (RISD). Both Bibi and I love designs of all kinds, and the RISD museum was a great place to see various art forms. From paintings to fashion, home decor, ceramics, and porcelain, the RISD Musuem offered a little bit of everything. In Providence,  we walked around a bit, visited a cute little vintage store, and took pictures in front of the State house. 

Newport on the other hand was a different kind of adventure. It is a coastal town, so a stroll by the wharf was a must
 We walked down the quaintest street ever, window shopped (I even copped a pair of classic tall uggs for 50% off). When we were done, we sat down by the sea side to indulge in some seafood. There was no way I was going to visit a coastal town and not stuff my face with lobsters and clam chowder soup--yum. In all, it was a great day, and I was able to get out of my funky mood for a bit.

Why don't we make silly face while we wait for this train to pull into Providence?
