Our Story & Live Interview with WETC

We launched Travel The East back during mid-Summer of 2014 and often we are asked the question- Why?  Undoubtedly blogging takes considerable time and effort, but as the Oxford Dictionary defines it- Inspiration is the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative. We were already spending countless weekends exploring the northeast region and beyond through our hiking/outdoor adventures and photography, so we thought- why not do more!  Matt's dad also played a role in our Travel The East inspiration story.  He's been managing not just one, but two sites for a few years now- Rhode Island Striped Bass & Rhode Island Carp Fishing!  And his success story sprung up simply from his passion for fishing.  

Keeping up with Travel The East, has been more fun than work.  Having the opportunity to meet and inspire tons of new people that share similar interests through our instagram community (@traveltheeast), as well as   our Guest Blogger forum, has been more than enough rewards with growing our site.  Endorsements and publications/ local media features tack on an added bonus!

A few months back we did our first televised interview on Massachusetts' South Shore local news station WETC.  It was great having the opportunity to share our experiences, hiking tips, photos and more with a new community!
