My Alaskan Journey started in Boston....

So as you are reading this I am currently making my way to Anchorage Alaska. But my journey to get here started a few days ago. 

First I flew up to Boston to meet my friend for the day before flying to Seattle (well that was the plan anyways).

I was excited about this because I never really explored Boston. I have only been there during Marathon weekend and never ventured far from the Expo area.

Our first stop was to the Boston Public Market for some yummy donuts at Union Square.

Our next stop was taking a Harbour taxi over to the other side of town to take a tour of the USS Constitution. After we arrived back we went for lunch at Joe's and had their famous New England clam chowder in a bread bowl. It was delicious! 

After lunch my friend told me I had to try these famous cannolis from Mike's Pastries. Let me to tell you they did no disappoint. Another delicious treat. 

We made our way through the Boston  Common Park to arrive at the Cheers restaurant. By this time we were so full from everything we had ate earlier that we did not eat here, but it was still neat to go in and see it. Afterwards we walked
walked through the Public Garden and saw the famous "Make way for ducklings". This month they were dressed up for the upcoming 4th of July holiday.

By this time we had to start making our way back to the airport for our flight. When we arrived back to the airport we saw that our original flight to Seattle we wanted to take was delayed almost three hours and it was oversold so we had to look at other options. And the flight we could get on going to the west coast was Portland Oregon.  Okay then, Portland Oregon here we come! Always an adventure #flightattendantlife   -L


  1. I love Boston! It seems like the wrong direction to get to Alaska, but so much fun. I grew up reading Make Way For Ducklings and love seeing that sculpture. How were they dressed up?

    1. They were dressed up for 4th of July with stars and stripes. Well my friend was in Boston so I flew up to meet him so we could fly out together.

  2. Looks like you had a lot of fun and some great fueling for your race! Have a safe trip and a great run in Anchorage!

  3. Sounds like a fun start to your trip! Hope the rest of it goes smoothly :)

  4. I have never explored Boston other than the area around the expo either. we are going there for a long weekend laste this summer. You make it look so fun (and yummy!) Enjoy Portland, one of my all-time favorite cities. Lots of great food there too!

  5. How fun!! I'd love to visit Boston someday. I have been watching Cheers on Netflix (while on the elliptical)...what a great show that was!

  6. I haven't been to Boston since I was a little girl! Lucky you with all your travels!

  7. When my inlaws still lived in Wellesley we would get into Boston more. They've been gone a long time, so the last time I was there was 4 years ago, I think, when I did a half just outside of the city.

    As always, you cram so much good stuff into a short amount of time! Here's to getting to Alaska with no problems.

  8. You are on quite an adventure! I hope you have some time to spend in Alaska too it's amazing there

  9. My cousin's daughter turned 2 in April, and I got her a Make Way for Ducklings book. When they were at Disney, she absolutely LOVED Donald, and I had a lightbulb moment for her gift. I love it when the statues are all dressed up.

  10. Boston is such a great city! I love exploring it when I am there for the marathon. Have a safe trip to Portland - that's one of the places on my list to visit.

  11. Yay so glad you got to enjoy my hometown! And aren't those cannolis so good?!? Enjoy the rest of your trip!

  12. I've never been to Boston! You make it look fun - and let's face it, cannolis? I'm there!
