The region of New England in the North-East of North American is made up of six states; Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. It shares a border with New York, yet it’s often overlooked on the tourist trail. The region is seriously rich in history, so here are 6 unusual yet culturally enriching New England events you can get involved in this year.
Thanksgiving may be an American tradition, but why can't we celebrate too? United Airlines have today "thanked" their Aussie travellers by announcing special discount airfares as part of a one-off Thanksgiving sale.

In what is pretty major news for Australian travellers, US carrier United Airlines have announced that their fleet of 777-200s - currently utilised for the long haul flight over the Pacific, connecting the East Coast of Australia to the West Coast of the USA - will next year be replaced exclusively with their 787-9 aircraft.
Earlier in the year, as we flew from New York City's JFK to London's Gatwick to make it to The Great Escape, AU Abroad's Larry Heath tried out the service of Norwegian Airlines for the first time. It also marked his first flight on the new Boeing 787-800 Dreamliner. A budget airline along the lines of Jetstar, this route is often the cheapest way to get from the US to the UK. The only catch is that it's a red eye... let's see how Larry fared in this week's flight review:

Getting in and out of Toronto's Pearson International Airport can be a bit of a pain. Though a new express train service installed for the Pan Am Games in June has made the process of getting in and out a slightly less tiresome affair, it remains an expensive one. Luckily, for some routes, another airport lays within literal walking distance of the centre of the city. The Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport only serves two airlines - for now - Porter Airlines and Air Canada. One of its most popular routes, flying direct to New York's Newark Airport with Porter Airlines, is what Larry Heath recently tried out:
The idea of the interactive theatre experience is nothing new. From "whodunit" dinner parties to whatever it is people get up to at those Rocky Horror screenings, there's always been a market for those of us who want to feel a part of the action. Even sitting front row at a comedy show brings out the more daring individuals. But few interactive productions have gained the level of talk and acclaim that Sleep No More has in New York City since it was unveiled in 2011. Its unique take on the classic story of Macbeth has redefined the experience as an art form into itself, and set a new bar for the genre to follow. And last month, we got to experience the much talked about show for ourselves.
