MASSACHUSETTS

049Boston, The (Almost) Unreachable City

I can’t tell you how many times Gretel had to correct me since I kept calling the town “Walkings Glen” in the state of New York. We have both been to the town before (wine tasting and Farm Sanctuary) but now we decided to do something a little different. We both wanted to explore the… Continue reading

Whenever Gretel and I feel the need to visit quirky shops we always seem to end up in New Hope Pennsylvania. As we stepped out of the car and walked into the town the first thing we say was a woman who was dressed in a white garb preaching about the Rapture as she spit… Continue reading

Although I forgot my powdered wig and my three-pointed hat I still made my way over to Williamsburg, Virginia. Gretel was invited on the adventure but unfortunately she could not take off from work. I went with my mother and younger brother and have been here a few years ago but never when the temperature … Continue reading
