All Aboard!

I’m fairly certain that the majority of my life goals are based on the exploits of heroes from children’s books.  I love(d) Where The Wild Things Are and I always dreamed of going on adventures with wild creatures.  Now here I am traveling the country with Mr. Eko. On Sunday night I got to check …

You really do learn something new every day. The original itinerary called for a straight shot from our hotel in Boston …
