After a long 31 hours of sitting in four different airports and flying in three different planes, I’ve finally made it to BOSTON!
All but the last leg of my trip went smoothly when my American Airlines flight was delayed at Los Angeles International for an hour due to a snowstorm in Boston. This meant I had a six-hour layover at LAX, which I filled with sleeping – sorry to the people at gate 42A for snoring!
After sitting on a cramped AA flight for five hours all I wanted to do was stretch my legs and sleep in a proper bed! Arriving in Boston couldn’t have come at a greater time. By the time I managed to collect my bags – which arrived without any delays – the previously mentioned snowstorm had made its way back to Boston. I jumped in the closest taxi and headed for my hotel, where that king size bed await me!
The taxi ride to my hotel was slow due to the amount of snow on the road – and we nearly slid through traffic lights. Once checked in, calling my parents, it was 11PM, I hit the sack and slept for 14 hours straight.
The next day I woke at 1PM, chucked on as much as I could and headed out to explore the area around my hotel. Luckily there was a shopping centre just down the road so I headed there first to buy a pair of snow boots – a must if you’re coming to Boston in winter.
From there I explored the shopping centre (Prudential Centre), bought a US sim card, and then I realised it was getting late; I guess I did sleep half the day. I went back to my hotel room. My first of many days in Boston had come to an end.
One great thing about Boston that I haven’t seen elsewhere is this website called Foodler – they deliver from most restaurants in your area and it’s really cheap! Lets get this in Melbourne!
