Trip to Boston

Hey everyone! How is your weekend going? I'm enjoying a lot this little break. I just came back from Boston and I had a great weekend over there. I spend a couple days there and I really enjoyed those few days of disconnection from the craziness of New York City.

This was one of those trips that you don't really plan. We went there with the intention of relaxing and having a good time in the city. Nothing organized. No bus-tour, no guide, just a map on my phone. I absolutely loved it! The weather was great, I had time to relax, to enjoy good food, to enjoy the atmosphere of Boston and, of course, to rest a lot. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, here are my highlights in images!

This was one of my favorite spots from all the places I visited in the trip. It's a little park by the river, and as you can see in the pictures, people go there to sail, kayak, fish... or, like we did, relax by the riverside. I sat down there for quite a while, even the Bostonian ducks came to say hello.

Food makes me happy. Good food makes me even happier. That's why I really enjoyed having time to sit down and enjoy a meal like the one in the picture while sitting under the sun in a terrace. Here's my sirloin steak with Italian cheese bread, roasted vegetables and red bliss mashed potatoes. And yes, I'm getting hungry again just as a I write these lines.

Another spot I loved was Boston Common, the city's oldest park. I guess that would be the equivalent to NYC's Central Park (disregarding size, of course.) This park was really impressive. It was so clean that it looked fake. Just like a movie set. I had a great time around the park. We found a choir of young students singing, a weird and awesome musician (please notice his instruments in the picture below) and a tribute with over 30,000 USA flags for Memorial Day.

One of the nights we walked around Fenway Park. It turns out that there was a game going on. Honestly, since I'm not a big sports fan, I had no idea what it was about. However, it was packed with fun people. They were all walking around the streets and it felt like a summer night. 

One of the things that impressed me the most about the city is that it is SO CLEAN! Sometimes I felt like I was walking around a theme park. Have a look at the pictures. All the buildings are so well kept, and the streets are in great condition as well. Also I loved the contrast of architectural styles. There are a lot of churches and old buildings mixed with modern constructions and skyscrapers. 

Here ends a great long weekend. I really enjoyed these days off and I'm back and ready for more New York action! I hope you enjoyed yours! Have a good one and see you soon!
