boston weekend getaway, my time as a tour guide

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

So I had college friends from South Jersey (Beth & Bobby) in this weekend, yes I specify because having gone to college in Philadelphia I came to learn that the north and south of New Jersey are like different states- different countries even. Let me start from the beginning. They drove in from Jersey after […]

lots of good travel ideas

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

After a busy weekend and a day spent entirely in New York with no internet, I have so much to catch up on in my google reader and emails. And while I have been at it, I came across an unusual amount of great tips/advice, so I thought I would just post some of them. […]

closer to 30 than 20

Monday, July 28th, 2008

That’s me – as of today, well technically yesterday the 28th. Because I made a day trip to New York for work, I feel like the day didn’t really happen. Good thing I had some ice cream cake on Sunday, the kind with the rocks in between the chocolate and vanilla. This is me practicing […]

my new york nights

Friday, July 25th, 2008

For the past four nights, I have been living in Manhattan circa 1960, vicariously through my new favorite show. And it looks like another Bostonian pretty much has been too (and I stole her picture, thanks Julie). Mad Men takes place in New York back in the 60’s and it tracks the lives of the ad men working […]

where did my summer concerts go?

Thursday, July 24th, 2008

Yesterday Intelligent Travel posted the “World’s Best Cities and Festivals for Music Lovers,” rated by MSN. Coincidentally, my new carpool buddies and I had a long talk about music on the rainy ride home from work tonight. It just hit me that I probably won’t go to a concert this summer, at least I don’t […]

more guacamole, please

Two, no three weeks ago, Lisa, Carlton and I went to the Forest Cafe on 1682 Mass Ave. in Cambridge. They have an extensive margarita menu, a friendly waitstaff and a cozy atmosphere. Could I get more generic? Anyway, it was a while back so I can’t remember the details of our meals, but I […]

weekend in narragansett

Monday, July 21st, 2008

Last weekend Mike, my sister Jenny and I spent the weekend in the Ocean State. Known for their clam cakes, cold tomatoe pie and quahogs, we got to spend our time in one of their best beach towns – Narragansett, where water towers serve as points of reference when giving directions (see below) and many […]
