I met up with Jenny, Lindsay and Daniel, three of my favourite Canadians who were all doing the same city escaping for the long-weekend. It felt really good to hang out with friends from home. It's kind of like eating a giant oatmeal cookie while wearing fleecy sweatpants or something. The trip made me a teeny bit more excited to come back to Canada in the fall, despite my intense attachment to NYC.
But I talk about New York a bit too much, let's talk about Boston.
Boston is charming and scenic with tons of cobblestone roads and orange brick buildings that love to collect ivy. I especially enjoyed Quincy Market at Fanueil Hall and strolling around the shops of Newbury Street. Daniel (who was also visiting other friends) showed up and acted as the best tour guide and took us to the Boston Public Library (my favourite place) and the Boston Public Garden.
While the pace and nightlife of Boston wasn't exactly something I would return for, I am still craving their clam chowder. It is probably the best soup I've ever had. I also finally got back to shooting with my Canon and it really made a difference in capturing the experience.
Below are a few photos from the first half of the weekend with some photo credit going to Jenny! Enjoy.
