Somerville, Mass – What do I love most about my job? Traveling the world is definitely a perk. But I think my favorite part is when I get to discover new places that are right in my own backyard. Last year I covered Massachusetts (not including Cape Cod) for the Lonely Planet New England titles and content. It was a great chance to explore places in the Berkshires and in the Pioneer Valley, often with the assistance of my trusty sidekicks. If you missed it, you can read about our Massachusetts adventures here.
