Six Senses Ninh Van Bay

I am clutching onto my orange life vest as we cruise through every choppy wave of the East Vietnam Sea on our hotel’s boat transfer.  As the small speedboat carries us out further away from Nha Trang and closer to the hotel I am once again making false promises to myself, this time I’ll really learn how to swim when…

Boston’s Beacon Hill

I am always short on time whenever I’m visiting home in Boston.  Despite having just spent three weeks visiting family and friends I barely had time to venture off and reacquaint myself with some of my favorite parts of the city.  Luckily, I managed to make it out to Beacon Hill, where I used to live and…
