BOSTON - Destination of hidden meanings

I haven't blogged much these past year and a half, since most of my trips have not been exciting at all. I came and went to cancer centers to get treatment, most of the time. Who would like to read about that on a travelblog, right?

BOSTON was different though. The Universe had other plans for me up its "sleeves".

Memorable new connections and re-connection with special people happened because I came to Boston, and I also got to enjoy some very good times there..

The city is gorgeous, easy to navigate on public transportation, Lyft or Uber; the air is crisp and fresh during the time I visited. Food is great, from vegan to … everything. There is also so much history and so many nice sites to visit.

What is not to like about Boston? Well… The cost! Pricy city overall. Hotels are insanely expensive and cost of living overall for locals is high too. I did not taste the chaos caused by a snowy winter, but I heard it can be horrible.

I thank my family for accompanying me to treatments. I thank Belén Cusi and Nicoleta Franchesca for visiting with us during our stays.
I specially thank and dedicate this blog post to Maria Ávila, a stranger who embraced us from the first day on, making her family my family, and to George, who gifted us with amazing surprise at the end of trips to Boston. You both gave me the true meaning of why I needed to be in Boston... To bring you into our lives.

I'll let the travel guides do the "talking" this time. but I share with you some photos of beautiful Boston.
