My trip to Boston started as kind of a spur of the moment thing. One of my favorite musicians (hasn’t toured in almost ten years!) announced tour dates in DC, NYC, and Boston and when I couldn’t get a ticket to the DC show I just said “Well, I’ve never been to Boston before!” YOLO. What’s more YOLO-y than planning a trip to a new city to see a concert all by yourself??? At the beginning of the year I decided this was my year to say YES to things and to just do as much living as possible. That spirit was the driving force behind this trip!
My friend Karla (who I went to Italy with) lives in Boston, so she kindly offered to host me and our other friend Quyen. These two are such gems! I originally met them at Foster workshop last Fall. I signed up for that largely out of a desire to get out of my little bubble here in the DC/VA/MD market where everyone is doing really similar things and meet new people. Get fresh perspectives. I’m so thankful I did because these two are amazing! Have you ever felt like sometimes people come into your life at a certain season for a reason? I feel like I was meant to meet them and become travel buddies with them! It was fate, for sure.
Anyway, this trip was a lot of fun despite being FREEZING (to me). I’m not a cold weather type person at all…I just don’t handle it that well! We saw Boston, New Hampshire, Maine, and where Tom Brady and Gisele MIGHT live. I feel like Boston is a big city, but also feels small enough to not be too overwhelming like some cities can be.
Here’s a recap of my trip in photos! I loved Boston so much and will definitely be back!
Here I am with my friends at a restaurant called Top of the Hub! It overlooks the city and you can see pretty much everything for miles! It was such a great experience!
On Easter Sunday we drove up the coast and stopped in Newburyport for brunch and then went to Portland, Maine! Maine is adorable! I could see myself living there (in the summer, only due to the, uh, BRISK temperatures).
That’s it for this trip! I’m looking forward to planning a few more adventures for the summer time…what are a few of your favorite cities to spend a weekend in??
