Travel Photos

This website is where I post travel photos from my various travels. It is a random sampling of some of my favorite pictures and places, rather that a travelogue type of format. I prefer this site to be a photographic glimpse of places in general. I hope you enjoy. ***NOTE: I don't update this blog frequently any longer. If you'd like to see more of my photos you can check out my Flickr site here: My Travel Photos

Boston's Neighborhoods Part 1: The North End

Boston, Massachusetts is called America's Walking City. And for good reason. I know of no other major US city that has such a compact downtown core, with wonderful livable neighborhoods radiating out from it like spokes on a wheel. There are 3 neighborhoods in particular...Beacon Hill, the Back Bay, and my personal favorite, The North End. I'll discuss the other 2 neighborhoods in future posts. The North End is a distinctly Old World neighborhood that is predominantly Italian. It has sights and smells everywhere you turn. It's a compact neighborhood, but it's easy to get lost in the maze of side streets. Boston's Freedom Trail, a red brick trail that connects 16 of the city's most historic sites, cuts through the heart of The North End...
