Hi there all, well we arrived safely Boston Bank Monday afternoon, had a Great flight, took just over 6 hours! Flight was only half full so we were also given three seats together to chill out in and took advantage of more FREE vino! Stayed at the holiday Inn, near the airport, really nice was great after the flight just to chill out with pizza delivery (I almost forgot that a pizza in the states is like double the size of UK!)Very very nice though. On the 18th we hit the REAL backpacker life and checked in to our 1st Hostel (HI Boston). Not a bad little place. Lou was disturbed by the fact that there was no alcohol allowed in the rooms,or hostel. So we ignored them anyway and sneaked some wine in the room! However not quite the same drinking from a camping cup! Our only room mate in our 6 bed dorm was a friendly German guy, who Dan introduced himself to in seconds, by telling him the lock wasn't working on the door to the room. The German in a look of alarm went out to test if the lock was actually faulty, as Dan had advised.... having gone out of the room and shut the door behind him, the lock had actually fully secured and the guy could not get back in! After Lous hilarious (if not loud laughter),we opened the door to a nervous looking room mate who thought that we were just playing a trick on him he was shouting "very good, very good" within seconds of meeting!(It's probably one of those where u had to be there!!!!) So we decided to go and check out the real Boston. We did the famous freedom trial, pretty cool, not sure if any of you have ever done it but u basically follow a different color brick along the pavement for many miles! We had a look at Quincy Market. There were lots of street entertainers, that i (Dan) was watching and trying to join in like a simpleton. The best was a guy that balance a pram on his chin. See the photo! Thought we might have got invited into the Boston tea rooms but no-such look they just told us it was $20 dollars per person to take a look!
Anyhow that evening we had a night out planned in Boston, meeting up with some friends (Message to Chris homer.. Dan took a pic of himself kissing Tamaria just for you!!!...Its attached) got our trip off to a Great start....the problem with Boston it's about double the price for a glass of vino than the UK!(But Lou has a sepearte vino fund for such occasions!) Its Wednesday morning and with a sore heads we are about to board the Greyhound bus for the lovely nine hour drive to Montreal..........the start of the Cananda tour, the intention is to work our way all the way across Canada and back down into Seattle in about three weeks time. It's all getting pretty exciting now, so far we've not seen too much except, Planes, Trains and automobiles and a few bars!!! So watch out for our next journal where we update you on the Canada Experience.......Hopefully we won't be needing our Bear spray :-)...Great to get all your mails Guys it's Brill to hear from you all keep them coming! Talk soon Lou and Dan x x
