A renewed focus on travel
When I first kicked around the idea of starting a blog, I thought that I’d write a travel blog. Alas, that was early in 2020, and we all know what happened. With things returning, if not to normal, at least to a lot less bad, it seemed like a good time to turn more toward travel.
In the next week, I’m going to storytelling again at Grendel’s; taking a natural wine class at Dear Annie; going to Third Thursdays at the Gardner; attending a Harvard Book Store author event with Jennifer Egan at the Brattle Theatre; and going to see DakhaBrakha at the Somerville Theatre. I haven’t had so many plans in over two years, and it’s reminding me about just how much I love this city.
Announcing the Wonder & Sundry Guide to Boston, Cambridge, and Somerville
I’m very pleased to announce that I’ve created the first Wonder & Sundry travel guide. I decided to start local, and the first guide is the Wonder & Sundry Guide to Boston, Cambridge, and Somerville. It’s free for subscribers!
What’s included in this FREE guide?
Here’s what you get as part of the FREE guide to Boston, Cambridge, and Somerville:
- An ever-evolving, annotated map (since I sent it to subscribers yesterday morning, I’ve added at least a dozen more places) of my very favorite things to eat, drink, do, and shop. With the map you can
- Filter for what you’re looking to do
- Get a full listing with directions, web link, a brief write-up, and photo
- Exclusive posts on ideas for unique things to do while you’re in Boston (more on that below)
- All of the related content from the W&S blog in one place (trying to remember that cool museum I wrote about last autumn? Find it in the guide)
- Links to help you know what’s in town when you’re here
- Listing details from the map that are sortable, searchable, and filterable to help you plan your trip
How do I get the guide?
It’s available exclusively to subscribers, and it’s absolutely free. Not a subscriber yet? Get on it!
You can find the guide linked in the Travel section. The exclusive post is included in the blog, and will also be included in the guide.
Exclusive post for subscribers: A perfect Boston walk
When out-of-town friends come to visit me, this walk through the North End, the Greenway, and Chinatown is what I do with them. There’s snacks to eat and spots to see. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon, and it gives you a good orientation at the same time. The walk has a detailed map of its own, including the best places to eat and drink and snap photos.
My friends always have a good time and remind me about “that walk” when they talk about coming back into town. Or maybe it’s the snacks. As the days get longer and (hopefully) warmer, it’s getting to be the perfect time to take it, whether by yourself or with friends. I’d love to hear what you think.
It’s yours for the walking. All you have to do is subscribe today!
