Weekend Trip To Boston

winter season in BostonAnother cold day on the East Coast. One snow storm after another. I even stopped wondering when will it all end. And since I’m not doing much traveling lately due to inclement weather, I thought today I’ll share with you some moments from my last year’s weekend trip to Boston.

It was February 2013, President’s Day weekend, and just how it’s Friday today, I was about to leave to catch a (Mega)bus to Boston. It was my first time in the city, and for a person who knows American History well enough (I got my Bachelor’s Degree in American Studies back in Poland), I was elated. At the time, I didn’t care for the weather, but as you can imagine, it was as cold as it is now.

So much for an introduction, take a look yourself below.

Freedom Trail in Boston
We started our walking adventure from a Freedom Trail, which begins in Boston Common.
 (On that note, I’d love to come back there in spring or summer. It must be a great hangout spot when it’s warmer).

Brattle Book Shop.  One of America’s Oldest and Largest Antiquarian Book Shops and probably my one of my favorite spots in Boston, established in 1825.

As an American Studies graduate, I was pretty excited to find another place we talked about in the class.

Little cozy diner established in 1940 and located in Somerville, Mass., was a prefect shelter for that freezing evening. I heard it’s closed now.

Don’t let the sun fool you… It was freezing that day!

 

PL: W dzisiejszej notce chcialam sie z Wami podzielic kilkoma wspomnieniami z mojej ubieglorocznej, weekendowej wycieczki do Bostonu. Byl to moj pierwszy raz w Massachusetts i nawet nie zdajecie sobie sprawy z tego jak bardzo cieszyla mnie ta krotka wyprawa. Boston to jedno z tych amerykanskich miast na wschodnim wybrzezu, ktore dzieli bardzo wiele tak waznej dla tego kraju historii. Jako ze ja studiowalam Amerykanistyke w Krakowie, mozecie sobie wyobrazic jaka wielka frajda bylo dla mnie zobaczenie wszystkiego na zywo, o czym wczesniej uczylam sie tylko z ksiazek i od nauczycieli.

Mam nadzieje, ze post przypadnie Wam do gustu!

xoxo,

Paulina
