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...

Please, explain to me how Frankenstein’s Castle is voted Salem’s Best Haunted House? What exactly were the criteria for elements of judging? Are there no other Haunted Houses within driving distance to choose from? Was judging completed by kindergartners? Was the judging based solely off of Frankenstein Haunted Houses? Maybe it was up against other Haunted Houses that have...

Believe it or not, Iceland wasn’t the last time we went winter swimming. There is something entirely primal about confronting below freezing weather in your skivvies and jumping into a slightly less cold pool. It kick-starts your heart, makes your bones jump and fills your lungs with the breath of a dragon. Swimming is a natural pastime in Iceland,...

I have a dedicated fondness for high intensity situations. I love romance because it's thrilling, I love moving because it's apprehensive and impulsive, I love baking because it's ambitious and demanding, and I love traveling because it’s adventurous and unknown. I love Halloween because of the unexpected and bizarre, because it is treacherous and risky, and because at no...

Iceland has intrigued us ever since Gabriel first graduated with his Bachelor’s Degree, and he applied for a job at CCP Games in Reykjavik.

Iceland is one of the most intriguing places we’ve ever been. It was unique unto itself, and the culture was fascinating. The way that the people in Iceland honor the land, and the sea, and they way that they celebrate life and respect their ancient beliefs of Norse mythology was compelling to be a part of. We were treated...
