travel buzz out on the web

Thursday, August 21st, 2008

I recently got fantastic feedback that posting about some of the great travel deals/tips/ideas that I am already following out there on the web is actually useful.

JP makes my 100th post

Wednesday, August 20th, 2008

This is my 100th post! It seems like it should be way more than that – how anticlimactic. But to be honest I am pretty excited about the accomplishment. As close as I am to Jamaica Plain I never really take the time to check it out. I have heard so much about its cool […]
