It's 23.46 on Saturday 21st March. Today has been a relatively low key day - so there is not all that much to report. We woke latish, around 9.30, at breakfasted in the usual manner. We were all ready pretty swiftly today, so were able to leave the hostel by around 10.45. From the hostel we headed down past the park to the closest subway stop, and out West of the city to the university district for a little exploration. The area we ended up in, around Boston University, was nice enough a but there wasn't a huge amount going on, so we found a little coffee shop and grabbed some lunch From there, the time being around 2pm, we boarded the tram to take us back into Boston. The tram got about 2 stops before ... read more

It's 23.43 on the 20th March. I'm getting pretty tired this evening, so the entry may be fairly concise. We woke up today in good time to catch breakfast, around 9.30, then set about readying ourselves for the day ahead. Around the breakfast table we decided that today we were going to walk the Freedom Trail, which takes us around all the major historical landmarks of Boston. The trail was of course all outside, so we needed to wrap up warm. In actuality it didn't seem quite so cold today as the wind has died down, but still the air was freezing. The trail started in the Boston Common, just outside our hostel and wound its way North through downtown Boston and across the river into the dockyards, where it ended up by the Bunker Hill ... read more

It's 23.05 on Thursday 19th March. Today has been or first full day in Boston. I think pretty much all of our nights were a little disturbed last night, as often they are in a new place. Because of this, I didn't wake properly this morning until 9.55. I attempted to rouse the others but they were having none if it, so I headed down on my own to catch the last 5 minutes of the free breakfast the hostel offers every morning. After filling up on bread and cereal I headed back upstairs to find the others still in bed, but at least awake. For the next few hours we slowly got ready to head out, trained and played a little pool in the common area. Once everyone was showered and suitably layered out we ... read more

It's 22.25 on Wednesday the 18th. Today has been the first day travelling since we have got here. In that sense it is perhaps the first day that we have felt that this trip is more than just a holiday - it has really begun in earnest. We rose at 8 this morning and readied ourselves for moving on, albeit grudgingly, from George's flat. With a last glance at the view we headed down the 40 floors to the lobby, past the porters, and into the courtyard. You could tell instantly that it was markedly colder than it had been previously. Is was not just a cold wind, but the air was cold and the sun no longer held any warmth. From the apartment it was a 12 block walk to Port Authority Bus Terminal which, ... read more

Here I go. This winter break has been the longest by far. Not to mention the past week from Hell. But here I am, in Logan. Terminal E, ready to take Iceland Air to Reykjavik, then to Charles de Gaulle in Paris. Funny though, the way the world works. Exactly a week ago today, I was sitting in the ER. Two of my good friends had showed up to hang out with me in the waiting area, with my Mom and I. After many hours of testing, the diagnosis came in to explain my severe chest pain all week: three blood clots in my lungs. I'd be lying if I told you I wasn't scared. For my health, for my Mom, for my trip. Jesus, this couldn't be happening to me. Thoughts raced through my head ... read more

All I wanted for Xmas was to spend some time with my long year partner in crime THH. Luckily my whish came true this year as we decided to meet up for christmas and new year's eve in the rainy and cold east coast of the USA, where we ultimately spent our holidays for a couple of weeks. Now, I realize that this is a travel blog and about travel it should be. However, travel also has negative sides and whoever got in a mess abroad knows that all too well. Unfortunately in this blog I need to talk about what I call the east coast disaster, or all the misfortunes that happened to me on this trip. Shortly before Xmas me and THH met up in New York, a city which I need to dedicate ... read more

A vonat ezuttal kicsit kesve indult, de szerencsere nem kesett tobbet, igy nem sokkal este 10 utan odaertem Bostonba. A hotel ugy 5 percnyire volt gyalog az allomastol, es nagyon kenyelmes es modern volt a szoba. Ez egyebkent a 140 nevu hotel, ami a Clarendon Street-en a 140-es szam alatt talalhato, rogton a John Hancock Tower mellett, ami Boston legmagasabb epulete, es a kornyek ugy altalaban eleg modern. Reggel egy szokasos eper smoothie es kave utan a Back Bay Fens nevu termeszetvedelmi teruletre latogattam el kisse delre - kellemes hely, bar kicsit nagyobb teruletre szamitottam. Innen metroval es gyalog elutaztam a varos keleti reszen levo obolbe, mivel egy balnalesre akartam befizetni. Igen szep ido volt, igy a napkozbeni utakra mar elfogyott minden jegy, es csak a delutan 5.30-as maradt. Idokozben mar del fele jart az ido, ... read more
