This may not come across as surprising, but there are obvious differenes between being 14 and 17. The maturity and the want to explore anything around you grows dramatically, deepening your love for being an adventurer, a master of the long walks and grand views. With my hand-me-down riding boots at feet and my cute French-style hat warming my head, I set out with five amazing individuals while enjoying freedom in the fantastic, fast-paced city of Boston. I visited before when I was 14 my mother and I made our way to this legendary city, but we never really experienced the corners and crevices of the life around Boston. I was blown away with just the first two days, and I cannot wait to see what more comes.
Let me begin with this photo….
After we arrived in Boston, we waiting in a freezing train station while laughing about Harry Potter and random accents we wish existed. Needless to say, we were acting totally normal….
A day of not eating leads to fantastic pizza.
At this point, all we wanted was sleep. But, we dragged our sorry butts out of our hotel room and pushed on to the local art museum. It was free to experice all the art for a special night of donations, so why would we sleep and not enjoy art?
We were wating for our bus in the usual Boston cold, awaiting our arrival to the art museum.
Search for the art museum led us to many wrong turns and interesting shadow/light combonations. I do not regret a step.
Being so tired from travel, our departure from the art museum came quickly as we searched for our dinner and the fasted way back to our beds. We settled for a local, Chipoltle-like resaraunt which was more delicious than you can imagine through words!
After a great night of rest, we took out to concur the city in the day light. We had many adventures and found ourselves lost many times! But, it was such a blast!
After such a huge meal, the only thing to do was keep walking!
I fell in love with Boston in less than two days. The pace of the city and the awesome cultural mix makes everything interesting and fun to explore. Taking the bus and metro is fun, regardless of the amount of germs roaming around everything you touch. What makes Boston better is the travel with many others. Jokes and laughs fly about as young adults master the huge city of Boston, one step, bite, and photo at a time. I would love to live in Boston where studios are only $1,800 and mind-blowing things happen every second. Boston, you have a new girl. Get ready, her I come!
