A first visit to Kiev

St. Andrew's Church, Kiev, UkraineI had a fantastic first trip to Kiev last week! It was a short but productive visit to the bustling, booming capital of Ukraine. What a thrill to visit this vibrant city – so full of life, even in February. Between meetings I was able to spend a few short hours exploring the city, ducking into gorgeous churches under golden domes and even visiting Maidan Nezalezhnosti – “Independence Square” – the city’s central plaza made so famous in recent years.

Scavenging for the Holidays

The arch at Washington Square, NYC.Last week, Boyle Software’s New York City staff and friends celebrated the holiday season with a chilly-but-raucous scavenger hunt through the narrow streets and avenues of Greenwich Village.

Following a course laid out in the “Secrets of Greenwich Village Scavenger Hunt” by Watson Adventures, three intrepid teams of clue-hunters spread out over the West Village to discover new spots and encounter little-known tidbits of Village history. Did you know that Mark Twain wrote most of THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER within a couple of blocks of Washington Square? Have you seen the Cafe Wha? where Jimi Hendrix was discovered? Do you know the place where Bob Dylan wrote “Blowin’ In The Wind”?* All this and much, much more was learned over the course of the 90-minute hunt. Continue reading
