Gently Down the Stream

Dear Reader, They say, “the best things in life are free.” And, when they say the “best things” they are probably referring to health, love, family, friends, etc. — which are great, but there are very many other beautiful free things out there! I’m a bit of a scavenger (more here), finding free clothes and... Continue Reading →

Pandemic on Pause

Dear Reader, The very last time that I was on an airplane was pre-pandemic on my solo adventure to Colombia (more here). Sitting in an airport, writing to you now, I can’t help but sigh and think to myself — “my, how things have changed.” Unlike my trip to Colombia, my flight this time is... Continue Reading →

[Review] Boston Winery

Dear Reader, Wine in the U.S. is big business — a $220 billion industry to be more exact. While 90% of the wines produced in the U.S. come from California, it turns out that each and every U.S. state has at least one winery. While Boston is not known for its wine-growing abilities, the city is... Continue Reading →

Vermont’s Itty-Bitty Capital

Dear Reader, If you’re a fan of road trips, then you have probably already asked yourself on more than one occasion whether a particular spot is “worth the visit.” In my experience when a location is intriguing but there isn’t too much to do, then making a long rest stop can be just the right...

This holiday was first recognized on June 19th, 1866 in Texas to memorialize the order, which officially outlawed slavery within the state three years prior. Although the significance of this...

Boston Has Beaches Too

Dear Reader, Most Boston-based tourism is centrally located in the downtown area and the immediate surroundings. But, as you can imagine, Boston, like most other cities, has much more to see than the easy-to-reach hotspots. On this day, I undertook an adventure starting from a sandy city beach, stretching along a causeway with spectacular water... Continue Reading →

Sunny in Salem (Part 2)

Dear Reader, As far as tourism goes, Salem, MA is kind of underrated. I say “kind of” because it is highly praised for witchy-Halloween travel, but passed over as a vacation spot during other times of the year. Recently, I had the pleasure of visiting Salem during its “off season” (aka NOT Halloween) and still... Continue Reading →

Sunny in Salem (Part 1)

Dear Reader, There are very few Halloween vacation destinations that rival Salem, MA. But is Salem worth the visit during other times of the year? Over the course of two posts, I will give you a small peak into my mid-May Salem adventure. In a spur of the moment decision, influenced by a beautiful weather... Continue Reading →

Green Line Adventures (Part 2)

Dear Reader, If you’re from Boston, chances are you’re not a fan of the Green Line. As mentioned in part 1 of this post (more here), the Green Line is the oldest and, perhaps, the slowest of all lines. However, after reviewing the complaints here and here, it seems to me that most grivences are... Continue Reading →
