As I sit and write this, I’m back in London reflecting on an amazing whirlwind of a week home for Christmas. From quick stops in Boston, to savoring Connecticut’s many charms and lots and lots of time spent with family, it was an incredible visit.
It’s always interesting returning to a place that you lived in for 13 years. No longer a resident, but not quite a tourist, I’ll always have a special place in my heart for a Boston and a desire to visit a few times annually. Here are highlights from my weekend back in Beantown.
The Arrival I took a daytime flight from Virgin Atlantic. As I settled into my seat, it was one of those amazing traveler moments where I had a row of three seats all to myself. Oh, and as we took off, the crew announced that we also had in-flight wi-fi (for a fee). A brilliant flight on so many levels, thank you Virgin Atlantic!
I often mention the Christian Science Plaza and get a, “Huh? Where?” type response from fellow Bostonians. Regardless of your interest in the Christian Science religion (the massive building is the church’s Global HQ, built in 1894 and expanded in 1906), the scenic plaza, surrounding reflecting pool and fountain in the summer make it a fun place for a stroll.
I’m always excited when new restaurants open in Boston that bring a little something special to the table. Such is the case with Liquid Art House, which opens today at 100 Arlington Street in the Back Bay. Part restaurant and part art gallery with a stunning bar, I was thrilled to attend the sneak preview event with one of my favorite local bloggers, B Loved Boston. Here’s why!
