Western Massachusetts Fall Roadtrip, Full of Hidden Gems

This year we have a smarter suggestion for you, instead of heading north, point your car toward central Massachusetts and discover the beauty of ancestral farms, hillsides awash with fall colors and small towns chock full of farm stands, art, music, history and artisan craft shops. Fall foliage is just as brilliant in this verdant region, but you’ll miss the annoying crowds.

The Changing Faces of The Ramblas, Barcelona’s Most Famous Street

The Ramblas: the changing face of Barcelona’s most famous street.

I remember the first time I walked down the Ramblas well. It was February 1998 and Barcelona’s most famous street was full of tourists and locals alike. There were silver-painted human statues, stock still until a coin clattered into their collection boxes, buskers of varying degrees of talent, and card tricksters keeping a keen eye out for the first sign of the law. Whether taking a stroll, people watching, or on their way elsewhere, the street was bustling with activity as people went about their business.
