Cheers to Boston

Everyone should visit Boston at least once, preferably in the Autumn when the tree lined avenues and parks are starting to turn from green to copper. Boston is a city of great political and historical significance, however, it is better known as the home of Harvard University, The Red Sox and not forgetting the “Cheers” bar. In recent weeks a bench in the Public Garden, made famous by the “Your move, chief” scene from the film “Good Will Hunting” has become a memorial to the late Robin Williams.

Getting to Boston is very straightforward, Virgin Atlantic fly directly to Boston Logan International from Heathrow in around seven and a half hours at a cost of just under £500. A more interesting way to reach the city is by train from Penn Station New York as these are two great cities to visit on the same trip. Amtrak offer a regular service that takes up to five hours with the majority of the journey taking in the stunning coastal route, however, the Acela Express is a more expensive option, it follows the same route in a little more luxury and takes three and a half hours. Either way, using Amtrak is the best way to see the country and some may argue that New England is so picturesque that it is a shame to miss it by flying in direct.

Bourne to be wild

Whenever I place my tired feet on Australian soil, I am always amazed that I have managed to reach the other side of the world. What makes it even more extraordinary is the fact that my journey was relatively straight forward. It was certainly long and tiring, but in a little over twenty four hours I can find myself in Melbourne with relative ease. When I think of the first visitors who headed into the unknown on horse back and then by boat for weeks on end it really does "blow my mind". As our history books will tell us, the first explorers came in search of gold, but even today, the allure of Melbourne is just as strong. Rather than a gold rush, we come in searc...Read More

Krakow- taking Pole Position

This month our Traveling Actuary Eve Hartridge takes us on a whistle-stop tour of Krakow, Poland's second most important city and certainly it's most fashionable.

Krakow is rapidly becoming the go-to destination in Europe, closer than I thought with a flight time from London Gatwick of under two and a half hours. The picturesque city is located on the banks of The Vistula River and is steeped in history and culture dating back to the 7th Century. Those who have studied The Second World World War will know of it's significance and the tragedy that stuck this city 74 years ago. Today Krakow is a positive vibrant city, everyone that I m...Read More
