Boston

“Boston is wicked smaaht. I love that Boston is motivated not by money or politics, but by learning. The academic institutions are a source of innovative art, architecture and ideas that we all benefit from. The students provide a renewable source of energy and vibrancy that permeate the city. Yet for all the fancy buildings and big ideas, Boston is still a city of neighborhoods and local people. The students may or may not be here in four years, but my neighbors are here for the long haul. They are the cogs that keep the city running, moving, growing, remembering the past and creating the future.” See more on Lonely Planet…

New England

“For a place that is steeped in history, New England is ever moving forward. I am proud of the region’s 18th-century revolutionary roots, but I’m even prouder that all six states embraced marriage equality in the 21st century. Emerson and Thoreau are inspiring, but it’s Geraldine Brooks, Jhumpa Lahiri and Elizabeth Strout that keep me up reading lat into the night. John Singer Sargent is iconic indeed, but even more intriguing is te art being created in the SoWa studios. New England’s history is rich, to be sure, but the here and now is downright exhilarating.” See more on Lonely Planet…

New England’s Best Trips

“City streets and cow-dotted pastures, windswept beaches and forest-covered mountains: Massachusetts offers an incredible diversity of landscapes. The state is small, but its scenery will satisfy your craving for eye candy (surely the foremost requirement for a rewarding road trip).” See more on Lonely Planet…

Finland

“Anchoring the country’s southwest is Finland’s former capital, Turku. This striking seafaring city stretches along the broad Auraoki from its Gothic cathedral to its medieval catle and vibrant harbour. Turku challenges Helsinki’s cultural preeminence with cutting-edge galleries, museums and a restaurants, and music festivvals that electrify the sumer air. Throghout the south, the coastline is strung with characterful little towns…. Scattered offshore, islands provide yachting opportunities, sea-salt retreats and stepping stones across to Åland and Sweden.” See more at Lonely Planet…

Pocket Helsinki

“Spectacularly entwined with the Baltic’s bays, inlets and islands, Helsinki’s boulevards and backstreets are awash with magnificent architecture, enticing eateries and groundbreaking design. This modern city by the sea is less flashy than the other Nordic capitals, but rivals them for accessibility, creativity and quirkiness.” See more at Lonely Planet…

Moscow

“Moscow lives and breathes Russian history, from the ancient Kremlin on the city’s founding site to the ubiquitous legacy of the Soviet period. Yet the history is not staid: on every visit I witness it unfolding in the here and now. The metro expands in every direction. Old factories and power plants are converted into art centres and nightlife hubs. Bans on imported food inspire an innovative locavore movement. The biggest hotel in the world gives way to a `wild urbanism’ park. Moscow is unstoppable — and it never ceases to inspire me in some unexpected way.” See more on Lonely Planet…

Russia

“The state becomes more authoritarian. International relations deteriorate. But Moscow keeps getting cooler, more cosmopolitan and more creative. The capital is bursting with energy, as factories and warehouses are converted into art galleries and post-industrial nightclubs; parks are overrun with healthy, active, sporty types; and chefs experiment with their own interpretations of international cooking…. From artistry and history to recreation and procreation, Moscow is a cauldron of creativity.” See more on Lonely Planet…

Pocket Moscow & St Petersburg

“Two capitals, past and present. Two urban landscapes, rich with arts, architecture, culture and dramatic histories. Yet these two cities could hardly be more different. From Moscow’s red-breack fortress and Stalinist skyscrapers to St Petersburg’s picturesque canals and baroque facades, the Russian capitals are a study in extraordinary but exquisite contrast.” See more on Lonely Planet…

Trans-Siberian Railway

“Moscow is the start or end point for your train journey across Mother Russia… Soak it up.  Examine the art and move to the music; splurge on a ritzy restaurant; stay out til sunrise; get lost in the crowds. Once you get on that train, you may not get to do it again.” See more on Lonely Planet…
