New York & Boston 2011

New York City continues to be one of my favourite destinations, and as ardent tennis fans, my husband and I bought some tickets for the 2011 US Open. In addition to some amazing world-class tennis, we spent some time exploring Broadway and the Times Square area. I also go to know Brooklyn a bit better in a bicycle tour, one of my favourite ways of exploring a new city. A stop at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden provided some great opportunities for a photo buff like me.

After three days in New York City we moved on to Boston, another one of the jewels on the east coast of the United States. To get an overview of Boston I went on a guided city tour and also explored the Quincy Market and the Boston Commons. The next day I spent more time on Copley Square, admired the Boston Public Library and explored the picturesque Back Bay area.
