A Solo Weekend in Boston

26 May 2017

I developed a strong sense of independence in the two years I was living abroad. I was fearless about exploring the world with nothing but myself and a camera. Once I moved back to the States, I found it difficult to explore places on my own. I always wanted the company of friends and family. As enjoyable as a travel buddy is, sometimes it can limit you to do the things you really want to. I'm not sure why it took me SO long, but I finally went on my first solo trip within the United States. 

Boston, of course, was the most obvious choice for my first solo vacation. A city rich with history and culture, I had only been once before. I was eager to explore this city on my own! I ate where I wanted, visited the museums I wanted to visit, and no one was rolling their eyes at me while I stopped to take the perfect Instagram shots! Although short, my trip was full of adventure. It was just what I needed. 

I know I have been neglecting this blog. The truth is 2017 has not been the year of travel for me. I spent so much time traveling in 2016 that I wasn't paying attention to my own personal success. So, I've put traveling on hold to pursue a career in teaching! While I focus on work, school, family and friends, please bear with me! But for now, I have so much to share from my Boston trip. Stay tuned!

(Also, new camera! About time, right?)
