There are cities you visit, take pictures and leave. Then there are cities you visit and immerse yourself in the people, culture, food and landscape. I have had this feeling in a few cities before this is my second one this year after Liverpool. A friend I met once travelling never stopped talking how great and amazing this city is and when I visited, he made sure I saw all and forever greatful for this experience. Being a port city it almost felt like being back home eating sea food and watching container ships dock on the port 🌊
In Africa, scarification has served as an important element of the culture of different groups. Scarification involves placing superficial incisions on the skin using stones, glass, knives, or other tools to create meaningful pictures, words, or designs. This is a Dinka Woman
One of my favorite places to go during the summer is Martha’s Vineyard. Save this post it you would like to visit!
I was 18 years old on my first visit and I fell in love 😍 w this beautiful island. It is a great place to vacation as a couple, for families or for a girl’s trip.
It is filled with a lot of history especially for African-Americans. Oak Bluffs in particular has been a vacation haven for African-American families for generations. If you visit the island in August it’s like a family reunion.
I have several handy guides on Martha’s Vineyard on www.TheSophisticatedLife.com but here are some important tips..
🏝 Although there are several hotels on the island, rental homes are the way to go. But, make reservations way in advance especially for the summer. Start planning a year ahead.
🏝🏝 Travel options to get to the island include taking ferries from New England cities like Boston or Providence or flying directly onto the island from those cities or even NYC.
🏝🏝🏝 If you plan to bring your car over on the ferry, you should also make those reservations far in advance. Rental cars are available on the island.
🏝🏝🏝🏝 Eat warm lobster rolls at Lookout tavern, warm donuts at Back Door Donuts, chowder at Black Dog Tavern (buy a T-shirt at one of their shops on the island)
🏝🏝🏝🏝🏝 Go shopping on circuit avenue & visit the gingerbread cottages in Oak Bluffs, check out the lighthouses on the island, hang out on Inkwell Beach & South Beach, take a ride on the Flying Carousel & don’t miss the sunset 🌅 on Menemsha Beach!!
Doesn’t this sound like the perfect summer vacation?!!! AND if you don’t have time to spend a few days or a week there, you can take a day trip from Boston to Martha’s Vineyard! I did that a few years ago. Did you know that? Have you been to Martha’s Vineyard?
The Glass Cabin -SAVE/SHARE THIS POST-

The architects designed this property meticulously.
