It’s probably shaved off a good 15 or 20 minutes,” Seweryn said. “Before, you’d just creep along and it would take forever, so it’s definitely a big improvement.”Hailed by both the city and the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority as a simple but significant transit improvement that can be replicated across the region, the Roslindale bus lane has been a boon to thousands of daily bus riders in southwest Boston who now cruise past stalled auto traffic each … [Read more...] about Boston’s new bus-only lanes are an improvement.

FOR me, beach holidays simply have to include a spot of sailing. They also have to include a bar that is bang on the beach (with cold beer on tap, obviously). That beach bar also has to have a beach volleyball court right next to it. A jaw-dropping waterfall just around the corner is nice too. The Mark Warner San Lucianu Beach Resort in Corsica ticks all of my strangely specific boxes. Perfect for families, beach lovers and water sports enthusiasts, it’s also a solid option for tennis and road cycling fans. A 30-minute transfer from Bastia airport, this 3* resort, set within beautiful gardens, enjoys picturesque mountain backdrops to the west and sea views to the east, with the island of Montecristo appearing in the distance one minute, then vanishing the next. The resort offers award-winning childcare services, so I signed both my 13-year-old son and ten-year-old daughter into the Kidz Club (ten to 13 years). Neither opted to go to the welcome meeting. Great! So, day one and it … [Read more...] about Corsica is perfect for families, beach lovers and water sports fans with Mark Warner
