Life Happenings

Boston cruising.

Less than 24 hours in Boston and I’ve already been to Fenway Park, seen Tom Brady’s house, and made tons of new friends! I walked the 1.8 miles from my hotel this morning to my work in downtown. It was a wonderful and mild 40 degrees and perfect for some pictures. I took myself past some glorious churches and through Chinatown. I have never been in a city that feels so old and I absolutely love it. I am not much of a city person, but Boston is different. The bikes outnumber people, and the history of the town blows through the streets with the arctic wind. I happened to make friends with a local Bostonian who gladly showed me some more sites around the city and helped me find some great places to eat for later on. There was a company dinner tonight held at Roka, which is a modern Asian cuisine. Thankfully, the restaurant is connected to my hotel, so it wasn’t too far of a walk and after the weekend travel, a drink was much needed. The crab rangoons were divine as was the sushi, but I am still on the quest for the best sushi in Boston. This foodie has so many places to try and am definitely looking forward to some new adventures!

As I lay in bed with my swollen, sore feet I am pondering the mysteries of life as usual, but I find myself too exhausted to even think for more than a few seconds. My body is tired but my mind ceases to rest even for a few minutes. At that thought, I shall turn my body slave to my bed and leave you with a few tastes of Boston that I saw today. If you’re like me, you’ll find such beauty in the architecture and age of some of these buildings. If you’re not like me, you wouldn’t even be reading this blog so go forth and take a mini tour of Boston while I hum my myself into slumber.

Good night Boston.

  1. You have to go to the North End of Boston to Mike’s Pastry! They have the BEST cannolis!!! The address is 300 Hanover St, Boston. There are so many great Italian restaurants in the area too! There is also an Ice Bar called “Frost Ice Bar” that is right next too Quincy Market and a 5 min or so walk from Mikes.

    Enjoy Boston! 🙂
