My friend Andrew Evans is taking a break from a breathless schedule of circling the globe as the National Geographic Traveler’s Digital Nomad. And I was flattered when Nat Geo asked me to fill in on a trip I’m in the middle of now: going from Boston to DC by train.
My first post for them is up: a bike ride from Cambridge to Concord to have a swim in Walden Pond, made famous from Henry David Thoreau’s two years there following his DIY creed of “simplicity, simplicity, simplicity!”
I’ll be honest, before researching bits of Boston, it never occurred to me you could. But locals have treated it as one of the best swimming holes in the region.
