Usually, holidays pass way quicker than they’re supposed to and it feels like time just flies by, right? Well, we’re not on normal holidays. Slowly but surely that fact is starting to sink in.
It’s now two weeks and a bit since our flight from Zurich to Boston and honestly, the last working days already start to blur like distant memories.
So, please excuse this slightly longer first post as we have some catching up to do.
We started out in Boston, the birthplace of the American Revolution and home to some of the world’s most revered universities. Have a look…
As our time here was limited, we decided to do the touristy thing and go on a hop-on hop-off bus with SuperTour Bus. They have three loops which take you all the way to Camebridge where MIT and Harvard are located and down to the waterfront and the docks. Their bus drivers are friendly and would probably stop breathing if it meant that they could put in another fact or two instead. I’m positive I read somewhere on their website that in order to be eligible as a bus driver you need to be able to lull your passengers in a constant flow of information, no matter how random. If one of them had stopped talking for more than three seconds somebody would probably have jumped up from his seat to check the drivers pulse.
Before starting off our Road Trip across the country we decided to take a train and spend my 30th birthday at Cape Ann, or to be more specific, in Rockport about 1.5 hours north of Boston. We loved it. Clearly, it has become touristic, but it’s still a very charming little town at the sea with tons of shops and food shacks lining the road.
Oh yeah, and back in Boston my wife and friends treated me to some steak at Ruth’s Chris Steak House. Juicy.
