Last weekend I ventured up to Boston for the first time in 10 years. It was my first time traveling through the US by greyhound bus, and I have to admit it felt quintessentially American. The only thing I remember about my last trip to Boston was a crippling ear infection, a high fever and my mom trying to find medicine for me in the middle of the night. Needless to say this trip was a breath of fresh air in comparison. I love how calm Boston is in comparison to New York, especially the Beacon Hill area, with its little cobble stone streets and brick townhouses. Acorn street (pictured above) was unbelievably picturesque. I loved the Boston Public Library and was impressed by the pieces at the Museum of Fine Arts. My favorite place to eat was definitely Tatte Bakery with their refreshing salads and incredible pastries (get the chocolate rose and the almond plum tarts). We spent a lot of time at Harvard with friends experiencing campus life for the first time and exploring the beautiful, historic campus.
