BOSTON STRONG






Newbury Street - Boutiques along Newbury - Copley Square - Acorn Street

I cannot believe it has been two months since I last posted. This year is flying by. I have been meaning to share these photos from Boston, one of my favourite cities, for a while now. Although our time there was cut short (caused by flight cancellations which ended up taking us to Houston!), I enjoyed our visit more than ever. If you read my post from last year, you'll understand my love for this city. A visit to Newbury Street was a big highlight, in particular enjoying brunch at Trident Booksellers. Their lemon and blueberry ricotta french toast is incredible. We also visited the Boston Marathon site and memorial. Only a month or so after and the affect on locals was still clearly visible. On a personal note it was incredibly moving and heartbreaking to visit again, having only been there ten months before. On our last morning we went to Charles Street, another treasure, for breakfast at The Paramount and then stopped for a danish and coffee at Cafe Vanille before snapping a photo at Acorn Street, the most photographed residential street in America. I could only dream of living there one day.

  1. Boston looks like a beautiful city, I really hope to visit one day. The marathon bombings must have been so devastating, I can't even imagine.

  20. Oh, I adore Boston! I can't believe I was studying in Harvard this time last year! It is truly the most explorable city with its compact size and efficient train infrastructure. My favourite place was the Liberty Hotel! And whilst I didn't have time to try all your little gems, I will certainly note them for next time. ;)
