While touring the Kuranda rainforest in Cairns, Australia (post coming soon) we had our first encounter with the DUKW. This is an amphibious vehicle that puts the all terrain, in all terrain. DUKW is not an acronym, like you might think, it’s actually the manufacturer's factory serial letters. This bad boy can cover any swath of land you throw...

In this three story building you find the Arts of Europe, Arts of the Americas, sculptures, furniture, vases, contemporary pieces, plus a bookstore, and a...

We unequivocally fell in love with Boston, Massachusetts. This is a city that honors and celebrates its revolutionary past, onward looking towards the future, and respects all those who come to bear witness of what was created here. The Italians in the North End, the Irish in the Back Bay and the American’s have all come together to shed...

When we stepped out of the Subway station into Harvard Square, a giant yellow and red banner immediately caught our eye. Man in a yellow hat, red book cover, brown monkey? We had just stumbled upon The World’s Only Curious George Toy Store! Located on a corner lot, this unique building was as fun on the outside as it...

Neither Boston nor Salem, are lacking in the old cemeteries department. Both cities have numerous burial grounds for key players in the early colonial era and American revolution. The tombstones are thin, frail and lean with the wind, they are difficult to read and have unique puritan etchings on them. They are fascinating and remarkable and contain a sense...
Salem, Massachusetts, Tales & Tombstones, Haunted Trolley Ride, creating family memories, family travel, traveling with kids,
Salem, Massachusetts didn’t prove to be quite what we expected. During our trip to Boston, we carved out a day to spend touring the most iconic Halloween destination in America. Rather than festive Halloween celebrations, however, we found little more than a torture chamber of silliness. While we infinitely enjoyed learning about the history of Salem, and touring the...

When we figured out that Harvard, the Harvard, was only one stop away, the first time we rode the Red Line on the T in Boston, Massachusetts, we knew it was time for our kids first college visit! We were planning on visiting Harvard University while we were in Boston, but seeing the name in print, on the subway...

There are plenty of things Bostonian’s do different than the rest of the world. They pronounce o as aw, and ah as aw, and ar as aw; they seem to really prefer the aw sound. When stop lights turn green, they ‘bang a left’, instead of giving the folks going straight the right of way. They call soda pop,...

What happens when the highest paid actor in the world, worth $225 million dollars, who typically plays roles as America’s hero, none other than Mark Wahlberg, serves your kid raw chicken at his mediocre restaurant at Boston Logan International Airport, BOS? He doesn’t give you a refund, that’s what. That extra $30 is going to bump him off the...
