A visit to the Plymouth Plantation

I’ve been living in the USA for over five years now and it’s about time I visited this historical re-enactment of the pilgrims landing at the Cape on the Mayflower and settling in Plymouth. Plymouth Plantation constitutes three sites – the native american’s (Wampanoag) homesite, the pilgrim village and restored Mayflower – 2. Here are some snaps from the plantation as well as some awesome sites at Plymouth.

A visit to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

Isabella Stewart Gardner museum is one of the most eclectic museums I ever visited. The museum displays gardner’s collection of art from ancient rome, the renaissance period and asia (mainly tapestries) among others. Don’t miss the Rembrandt’s self portrait and Titan’s ‘The Rape of Europa’ if you visit. Unfortunately the museum does not allow photography except for in the gardens and courtyards. A wholesome collection and definitely worth a visit or two.
