What are Vermont Vibes?
Vermont Vibes are the positive vibrations one creates from exploring the lesser known aspects of Vermont towns, villages, roadways, restaurants, local stores, smaller attractions, town dinners, backroads, etc. Vermont Vibes are all about experiencing the less prominent features of Vermont which truly make Vermont a magical vortex of energy. A key ingredient in this experience is to actually talk to people you meet, make introductions, ask questions, learn about others, and as my Girl Scout proverbs taught me, make new friends. Tourist: Drives past smaller places, stops when needs something, enjoys the Vermont landscape, stays on "scenic routes," limits conversation to generic courtesies, and doesn't pull over when driving too slow. Vermont Viber: Stops wherever and whenever the mood strikes, languishes in the Vermont landscape, always prefers the backroads and relishes bushwhacking adventures, talks to everyone engages in meaningful conversations with shop owners, waitresses, counter clerks, locals at the town store, tourists on the town green, and always pulls over when driving too slow. Vermont Viber Rock Stars: All that a Vermont Viber does but they drive a fuel efficient Pontiac Vibe as well (because I do, not because I have any affiliation with Pontiac other than I love my car).
