Costa Rica

In 25 years of traveling to Cota Rica, one of my favorite memories is from my first canal cruise to Tortuguero. We saw so many monkeys and sloths that I lost cocunt; the irdlife was magnificent; the crocs were lined up on the bank. Just when I thought I had seen it all, we spotted a baby sloth that had fallen into the water and was being carried downstream by the swift current. Aware that the little guy would be swept right into a croc’s open mouth, the boat driver offered him a paddle. The sloth climbed right out and we gave him a lift to safety.

This incident captures so much of what I love about Costa Rica–not only the incredible, unexpected opportunities to see wildlife, but also the care and pride that Ticos demonstrate in protecting the natural world around them. See more on Lonely Planet…

New England

“The history of New England is the history of America. It’s the Pilgrims who came ashore at Plymouth Rock, the minutemen who fought for independence from Britain, and the abolitionists who challenged America’s legacy of slavery. It’s the ponderings of Ralph Waldo Emerson and the protests of Harriet Beecher Stowe. It’s hundreds of years of poets and philosophers: progressive thinkers who dared to dream and dared to do. It’s generations of immigrants, who have shaped New England into the dynamic region that it is today.” See more on Lonely Planet…


“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 groundbreaking ideas, creative endeavors and renewable energy, which contribute to a dynamic, forward-looking city.” See more on Lonely Planet…
