After spending five days solely at the Gran Caribe All-Inclusive Family Resort, we were ready for something other than virgin margaritas in every possible flavor and swimming 18 hours a day. We decided to rent a car, which was delivered to us at the resort, and travel through the Mexican Riviera. At least as far as we could reasonably...

After chasing down the Northern Lights unsuccessfully in Iceland four years ago, this unfulfilled dream of ours has never left the forefront of our thoughts. When we read that Tromsø was the one place on Earth where the Northern Lights appeared more than anywhere else in the world, Norway soared to the top of our adventure list. We immediately...

Going to church in the King's Chapel is like flying first class in a private suite on a fancy airplane. This is the way to do church. Rather than sitting in long rowed pews, you have a designated pew; and not just a pew but a square cushioned cubicle. We can just imagine how much more pleasant church would...

Across the street from the Granary Burying Ground is Beantown Pub. For some reason, a joke we heard about the pub runs through my head everytime I think about this site: “This is the only place you can get a cold Sam Adams while looking at the cold Sam Adams.” I don’t know that it’s particularly funny, but it’s...

At the time of completion in 1809, the Park Street Church was the tallest structure in Boston. The steeple itself stood 217 feet tall. Until the year 1867 no matter where you stood in the city, or if you arrived from the water, you would be able to see the steeple of the church. Today, the steeple is a...

At the top of the hill at Boston Common you can’t miss the New Massachusetts State House with her 23K gold gilded round dome roof. In 1795 Samuel Adams, Paul Revere and William Scollay watched as 15 white horses, one for each state in the Union, pulled the cornerstone up the hill containing a time capsule. It was first...

The first stop on the Freedom Trail is Boston Common. This 50 acre park in the center of the city has a playground, visitors center, restaurants and food trucks, frog pond and is adjacent to Boston Public Garden home of the famous swan boats and where Mr. and Mrs. Mallard make their new home with 8 baby ducklings. It...

Stretching throughout the city of Boston and across the Charles River Bridge is a conspicuous brick path winding through the center of the sidewalk. This is the Freedom Trail. It doesn’t require a map, or a how to guide; it’s easy to follow and impossible to miss. It charts the course of the early settlers of Boston and the...

When we traveled to Iceland, during the middle of December and the dark of winter, we had to pick our activities deliberately. With approximately four hours of daylight we couldn’t see everything, it just wasn’t mathematically or cosmically possible. The Golden Circle is 300 kilometers of Iceland’s most popular sites and attractions, including incredible sites that you can’t find...

The Volcano House in the city center of Reykjavik doesn’t sell batteries, but they are open on Christmas Day. They are the only place we could find open on Christmas Day in Iceland, when my insulin pump ran out of batteries and we were desperate. That is just the how of why we came to the Volcano House, (you...
