Re: England’s Thames Path: Kew Gardens

George G. ·
My wife Diane and I spent almost an entire day at Kew Gardens. So much natural beauty to see. We arrived from central London at the Kew Station in mid-morning and didn't leave until almost dusk. At one time our son had a possibility of being transferred to London and I recommended getting a place in the Kew Garden area for the beauty and quiet. One of my photos from Kew.

Re: Walking the Freedom Trail in Boston

GarryRF ·
Must be 15 years since I walked most of your journey through Boston. The mix of old and new buildings are fascinating as you walk the city. Many of the older buildings look like they have shared an architects plan with older buildings here in Liverpool UK. I do find it odd that 5 Bostonians were stoning a single Redcoat then you call them unarmed ! A situation that would bring about the same end results today. I enjoyed your Blog. Thanks.

It is spectacular and I was impressed it's become such a transportation hub.The chairs are really comfortable. If your waiting there, remember Olvera St, is across the street and Chinatown and Little Tokyo are just a few blocks away!

Great photos PortMoresby! I too enjoyed the Aiken -Rhett house and the different eras of the house it preserved. So many times restorations don't show a very accurate picture of how the house really was lived in throughout time .

He told me it was caused by not chewing his food enough before swollowing it" Going horse riding at first light I've seen burials on the beach.

Perhaps the most famous member of the Bowes-Lyon family was one born just a few years after the family stopped living at Gibside. Elizabeth Angela Marguerite Bowes-Lyon, born in 1900, was the ninth (of ten) daughters of the 14th Earl, married the future King George VI, and then Queen Elizabeth the "Queen Mum."

Re: Discover the Texas Hill Country

Michelle Carr ·
Travel Rob, spring is my favorite time to visit the Texas Hill Country because the land is in full bloom with all the wildflowers, bees, and birds. Plus the weather is so nice, you'll want to be outside. If you are use to warmer weather, come during July 4th because we treat that holiday like Christmas and go all out with parades and festivals and fireworks. Autumn offers its own seasonal charm and warmth. You really do have to visit mulitple times to experience it all!

Re: Biltmore-House A Place of Fairy Tales & Magic – The Biltmore Estate

Excellent write up! I love historic homes but haven't seen the Biltmore yet. The admission price has always seemed high to me but, factoring in the size of the place and the cost of upkeep, i'm sure it's well worth the cost.

I visited the Biltmore more than 25 years ago and my most lasting impressions of it are the appearance of the estate as you approach it from the drive, the elegant banquet hall and its grand library (I'm a fan of great libraries).
