Two months later, I’m finally writing the last entry for my Boston trip back in November! 😅 I’m merging Days Three and Four into one post as they weren’t as packed as Day Two. I still had a great time of course. All in all, I had a great vacation.
First thing on this day was to meet up with Alex again at the Common. My Uber ride took me through MIT which showed off the skyline. It was such a beautiful day. Unfortunately, my driver got lost and she ended up taking us in circles three times. I had to pull up my phone to show her alternate directions.
I felt bad for having to give her a low rating, but she’d tend to stop in the middle of the road to look at her GPS. That’s dangerous, man. At least I got to see the view above a few more times?
At least I got to my destination in one piece! Alex took me through the Boston Public Garden. I really appreciate her showing me around. <3 This place is gorgeous. Seeing these colorful pictures after the recent snowstorm here makes me wish it was still fall. </3
Obligatory landscape selfie! How beautiful is the view? (Not me, the pond 😜)
We took a walk through Newbury Street afterwards. I felt poor. :’) We went inside a few shops, and I couldn’t afford anything. I saw this really cute Rag & Bone poncho (can’t find it online!) that I am now recreating through crochet, hehehe. ✌️
After gathering enough feelings of inadequacy, we ate lunch at Shake Shack. There’s a couple of branches in Philly, but I’ve never actually been into one before this. It was pretty good. I liked the peanut butter shake a lot. In-N-Out remains superior. Man, I would pay good money for a Double Double with Animal fries right now.
I saw a lot of Fallout 4 ads and merchandise around Boston. I chased a cab that had an FO4 banner on top of it so I could snap it. While hanging out at comic book store, I found this baby. I already have a mini-guide from the Pip-Boy edition so I didn’t purchase it, but it would be cool to have someday if I wanna get serious about collecting Fallout memorabilia.
Our long walk ended with a coffee break at Barnes and Noble in The Pru. For some reason, I was tapped out. I look so grumpy in the picture above. I obviously needed a nap. Haha, cheer up Raisa, you’re on vacation!
I had to fly back on this day, but not before Chinese dimsum for brunch! YOU GUYS. I HAD TAHO. TAHOOOOOO. I haven’t had one since 2012, and yes, I’ve kept track because I’ve been having serious withdrawals. I just love taho so much. 😢
Dat spread. 🍲😋
In retrospect, I ordered way too much, but everything was so good! Looking back at these pictures got me craving for some more dimsum now. Maybe I’ll go this weekend.
Alas, all good things must come to an end. I went back to my room to pick up my luggage then headed to the airport for home. I had some mocha macarons while I waited at the gate. It wasn’t as good as the pistachio ones I had on Day One, but enjoyable nonetheless.
That concludes my four-day trip to Boston! It was super lovely to see my friend again, and that’s one destination crossed off my travel list! I admit, writing this last post has me feeling a bit wistful. Can’t wait for my next trip!
