Enjoying the Special Moments in Travel

There are those moments in some trips where it just all comes together.  It all becomes worth it and any doubts about whether you came to the right place at the right time are washed away.  Those are moments when you are lucky or wise enough to know are special as they are happening so you can try extra hard to soak in what they looked, smelled, and felt like.


Moments like riding the beautiful carousel with my daughter in Boston Common as the sun set on a warm mid-October day, causing some of the orange trees to look like they were glowing with fire.

These are the magical moments that aren’t brought to you by any Disney type of manufactured magic, but that are brought to you by real life amazing travel experiences.  I’m so thankful for those moments, and even more thankful we got to experience one today.

  1. Lived in Boston and it is by far my favorite city in the US. Go Sox, Go Patriots, Go Celtics, Go Bruins!!!! 🙂 Have fun there.

  2. Welcome to Boston! Don’t miss the Children’s Museum, my DD loved it at that age. Try L’Osteria in the North End for dinner and the Modern for dessert.

  3. Hi MP,
    Glad you are enjoying our lovely city. You and your family picked a great time for a first visit!! The weather hasn’t knocked off all those leaves yet, thankfully, so you’re getting a beautiful view. New England really is amazing in the fall. Definitely check out the Children’s Museum and the Aquarium too. One of my favorite activities is to just walk the Freedom Trail, then head over to the Aquarium and walk along the waterfront there. If you have enough days, there are some fun day trips too – Plymouth and Salem are perfect examples. I agree you should definitely try out some of the restaurants in the North End. The Italian food is fantastic.

    Have fun and we can’t wai to welcome you back to our city again. BTW, there is A Boston Do tomorrow night. If you aren’t too busy with your family, feel free to stop by (or, bring them along too).

    🙂 Chirpchirp

  4. Nice post, I always enjoy special moments when I travel. Driving my car, listening to my favorite song or having a coffee in my way to a nice weekend. Will have a look to your blog more often and try to fly for free as you for sure! If you want to read my blog just click in here: http://pplaza.wordrpess.com
