I think you guys know I love travel, right? Ha ha. I'm having one of those moments though where I realize that I cannot live from one trip to the next. So I think, what do I really love about traveling? I really love planning fun things to do, doing fun things, exploring new places and most importantly I love spending time with whoever I am traveling with. Why can't I do these things now... when it's not vacation, even maybe when it's not a weekend... whoa, a school night? Seriously, I need to always remind myself to appreciate the smaller moments in life.
Enter: The I Love Boston Project. To complete this project, I will do at least one fun activity with someone I love (or at least like a lot) every two weeks and blog about it. Hopefully I'll do it even more, but I do want to make it realistic. There is no specific end date to this project but I'd like to keep it going at least through the summer. Of course the main purpose of this goal is for me to spend quality time with the lovely people in my life, but I also hope I give you guys some good ideas of things you may want to do if you ever visit me in Boston, or maybe even give you an idea of something you could do in your own city. So for that, I hope you join me and enjoy!
Here are some of the things I have in mind:
Hiking and Walking. I think I mentioned the other day, I really, really want to do some hiking around Boston. Please make sure I start this, soon. I also really want to do at least part of the Boston HarborWalk.
Brunch and Dinners. I never need to be convinced to visit new restaurants. One thing I really want to do is a trip to the top of the Prudential to eat at Top of the Hub but the question is will I eat brunch or dinner... tough decisions!
Breweries and Wineries. Can you believe I still have never visited Sam Adam's Brewery?
Shows and Sporting Events. Did you know Chicago's Second City is coming to Boston in March? Awesome. Plus you know I love my Boston sports. In fact, I think a college hockey game might be first on my list this weekend!
Road Trips. Yes, I know I said Boston, but forgive me if I sometimes extend it to short trips from Boston. I'd really like to see the Portland Maine Lighthouse. As usual, I'll use the term "Boston" liberally to mean anything you can reasonably get to from Boston.
How do you always make sure to appreciate the ordinary days and not live from one vacation to the next?
