We have left the “Big Apple” after a fantastic week. It really is an amazing city and as Frank Sinatra implies, if you can make it there you will make it anywhere. I think it is a city that grabs you as you enter it and doesn’t stop slapping you around until you sit back in your departing train’s seat. We found some real gems on our visit and perhaps the nicest was Bryant Park just across the road from out hotel. A small leafy park that was filled with people playing chess, petanque, and all manner of board games under the trees. In fact there was a mobile shelf that was put out each day that had games and books for people to use. At the top end was a Bar Café that was perfect ... read more

Well, I have been looking for these! I finally found images of Boston I took over the summer when they opened the new contemporary art wing of the MFA Boston! The new wing opened Sept. 18th, 2011 and unveiled seven new galleries with over 200 pieces by the likes of El Anatsui, Lynda Benglis, Mark Bradford, Kathy Butterly, and many more. So here is a selection of images displaying two of my favorite things; modern art and city lights. MFA Boston website: http://www.mfa.org/collections/contemporary-art... read more

After a great day yesterday we didn't have much planned until our 3pm flight and so I thought I'd try and push my luck and ask Lauren if we could go back to the TD Garden as I thought there was a sports museum there. We've seen plenty of shops and shows so a little sports museum wouldn't hurt! It was the New England (Boston) sports museum and it was fantastic. Heaps of memorabilia and great photos from over the years of the Celtics, Bruins, Patriots and Red Sox. We were also lucky because while we were there, the Boston Bruins Ice Hockey team were training on the rink that was a basketball court just the night before. I asked the lady how long it actually took to transform and she said their absolute minimum time ... read more

Up early and out of the hotel by about 7.30am to head to JFK before a 10am flight to Boston. The weather was perfect with the sun out and no real wind chill. Boarded the plane and the flight was only 40 minutes so you're basically there before you get settled. Our hotel is in the main theatre district which is in the main part of town, mostly everything is reachable on foot so we took off and went to Boston Common. This is a large park right in the heart of the city and has been there for close to 400 years. Boston is famous for their tree-lined streets and although all the leaves have gone during winter, you could tell that it would look pretty good. Without having much planned, we had lunch and ... read more
