Well We Have Never Been to Boston
So…When Liz’s son Cory and his wife Annie announced they were going to have a baby in March, we made the decision that it was time for a trip to Boston. Cory and Annie had moved to Boston last summer so Annie could pursue her law degree. They are her for two years and will then move back to their home in Texas. After researching Boston a bit we came to the conclusion that we would need a fair amount of time for Liz to enjoy her first grandchild and allow time to experience the area.
Getting to Boston
While we find the idea of traveling with the trailer to the East Coast at some point interesting, we chose air travel for this trip. It was a real reminder of how much we really do not like airports and airplanes!
The arrival at the airport wasn’t awful, but it quickly went downhill from there. We boarded the airplane and were waiting to depart when they announced there was a mechanical issue and there would be a delay. That evolved into switching planes and getting off the ground an hour and a half behind schedule, ugh. Of course our concern was if our luggage would make the connecting flight in Denver.
The rest of the trip went ok. When we arrived in Boston, we were happy to see our luggage made it. After collecting our bags we were trying to figure out how to get to the Airbnb when we were approached by a taxi driver asking if we would like a taxi, he gave us a quote and we immediately agreed that would be a great option. Our driver who called himself Russell, was had moved to Boston 30 yeas ago, immigrating from Russia, or what was the Soviet Union at that time. He was an interesting individual, and had actually grown up close to where our Airbnb is.
After checking in we went out for a little walk to a small neighborhood grocery for coffee and some small items. On the walk back we stopped in at a Thai restaurant for some takeout. We then returned to the Airbnb and watch the Zags defeat St Maries for the WCC Championship Game.
The Airbnb is ok in that it does everything we need and has close proximity to Cory and Annie’s flat and reasonable access to transit. The unit itself is clean although in need of a bit of maintenance, if not a little updating. That really is not a great surprise considering the age of the homes in this area.
