So much has happened since the last time I updated this space… Where do I even begin?
Well, firstly B and I spent two weeks traipsing across America. Literally from coast to coast. We refer to it affectionately as GART, aka Great American Rail Trip. We started out in Boston, flew to Chicago (there wasn’t enough time for a train ride there unfortunately), took the Amtrak across to Glenwood Springs in Colorado and then onwards to San Francisco. Guys, the Amtrak is a game-changer – although I have to caveat this by saying that this only works if you have time to spare, because the timetable is really a rough estimate. Chugging through cornfields, mountains, deserts, and skirting through rivers and the sea and chatting with locals was such an incredible experience.
In the meantime, movers were coming to my flat in London and moving my stuff to my new flat. You can imagine the days leading up to GART! Nights of packing after knocking off from the office, weekends scrubbing the flat clean. You get the picture. Imagine my relief when I finally boarded the plane.
Once I landed in Boston and reunited with B, we made a beeline for some…
Other highlights that weren’t pictured – free tour of the Massachusetts State House, by an incredibly articulate high school intern, and a trip across the Charles River to visit Harvard (best bit was probably the amazing mushroom burger from Tasty Burger).
