Tweet While doing a site inspection a couple months ago, I decided to take a long weekend to relax and do a little exploring. It’s always good to get to know a city when planning an event in case clients want to head out on their own and need some suggestions. But how do you […]

Tweet When you think Dominican Republic, what comes to mind? White sandy beaches, clear blue waters, drinks under an umbrella? What about the history of the island? It’s not its own island (Unfortunately, there are an alarming number of people who don’t know this!) – it shares a border with Haiti on the island of […]

Tweet A lot of people think of the Hamptons as the playground of the rich and glamorous. Since a number of celebrities do have homes there, the culture itself can sometimes get overlooked. The Hamptons are actually rich in history that deserves just as much attention as the fabulous homes. East Hampton actually dates back […]

Tweet Have you ever done a little digging into your family tree?  If you’re fortunate enough to have an uncommon last name, like I do, this can make it incredibly easy.   I don’t envy people named Smith who want to dig up those roots.  With a name like mine, however, I’ve never met a Mechsner […]

Tweet When many people think of New York they think skyscrapers, the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, and miles and miles of traffic.  Once you get out of town, though, there is so much more to be seen.  Have you ever been to a lavender farm?  This may not be someplace many people think […]

Tweet When you’re looking for a fun place that has lots to do indoors and out, I think Austin comes close to the top of that chart.  This city may not be the largest in Texas, but it is full of life and music.  Even when you first get off the plane, you hear the […]

Tweet While I sit back east and stare out my window at the cold and the snow, I can’t help but think about summer and vacations.  I know there are plenty of people who love the snow and go on winter vacations, and I do snowboard, but for some reason the word “vacation” always conjures […]

Tweet When you think of history in Boston what comes to mind?  The Freedom Trail, Cutty Sark, or the Royal Naval College?  What about Fenway Park?  For many people this little neighborhood holds sacred ground for baseball lovers. Fenway Park is the home of the Boston Red Sox and has been so since 1912.  Due […]

Bounding Around Boston

Tweet Boston – what an amazing place!  This was actually my first visit to Massachusetts and what a magical time.  There are very few places in the United States that boast so much history that seamlessly meshes with modern day life.  Three hundred year old buildings stand next to contemporary structures and the background of […]

Tweet Learning about your family history is always interesting, but what about learning about someone else’s?  I recently had the opportunity to visit the hometown of my significant other.  We’ve known each other two years and I consider myself to know him quite well.  What an awakening I was in for! As we drove around, […]
