We’ve all heard the old story about tea and the Boston Harbour. This city’s port was certainly an important asset back in colonial days — and the perfect place to get attention if you wanted to make a statement.

Beach and Pool

We may be long term travellers and serial expats but that doesn’t mean we think everyone should be. I am the first to realize we are all motivated by different things in our lives. Those different priorities are what makes it interesting to meet and talk to different people. Otherwise we would all be the […]

Eating Well in the East End of London

You’ve all heard how bad the food is here in England. Soggy fish and chips, boiled vegetables, and grey meat with insipid gravy. You’d think the only saving grace here was the beer. Believe me the beer is THAT good but the food is also very good. We have not had a bad meal in […]
