I kind of took a short hiatus from blogging– it was unintentional. I’ll be honest, it’s harder for me to write when I’m happy and life is going well. Which kind of sucks. I love writing but… I obviously am enjoying this whole happy life thing, too. I’m going to try to stay disciplined and get back to the weekly posts. I just have to stay disciplined.
Let’s just jump right in. A couple of weeks ago my friend Danielle and I went on a trip to the east coast to check out Boston and Salem. While we were there we took in two concerts, ate a lot of good food, saw a psychic, visited museums, and walked way more than out of shape self is accustomed to.
We got in way later than we intended because our flight was delayed. When we finally arrived at our AirBnb we took a little time to take in the view before we got ready to head for dinner and drinks at Cheeky Monkey Brewing Company. I had one of the best beers I’ve tasted there– a blueberry wheat. From there we headed down the street to the Boston House of Blues to see Mayday Parade. My little emo heart was so happy.
We slept in and then decided to take the train into the city. We headed to the North End and check out some of the Italian food we had heard so much about. After we ate our weight in pasta we walked around the city, checked out Boston Public Market and hit up some spots on the Freedom Trail. After a long day in the city we went back to our AirBnb to get ready for the Dear Jack Benefit concert. This is a show that has been on my bucket list– and it did not disappoint. I got to hear Konstantine performed live which is not something I ever thought would happen and Dear Jack is a really amazing organization that helps young adults facing cancer.
Our third, and last full day, on our trip was spent in Salem. We attempted to take public transit but got lost in some random town. They did, however, have some really cool murals. We decided to just call a lyft. We got into Salem and had brunch at The Ugly Mug Diner. They had butter beer on the menu. Need I say more? I ordered a crab cake with my breakfast which i feel is 100% justified on the East Coast. After brunch we explored Salem a bit. We went to the Salem Witch Museum, checked out so many cool shops, saw a psychic, and saw Max & Dani’s house from Hocus Pocus! After our Salem adventure we went back to our AirBnb and walked down to the beach. We spent our last night eating pizza in bed and watching Practical Magic.
All in all it was a really awesome trip. I will say though, I would be okay if my next trip involved less walking, more lounging, and warmer temperatures. 🙂
