Where I stayed

After five months of travel our head of steam finally ran out as we checked into our hotel in the Boston suburb of Chelsea. The hotel was to us a true oasis, with all the luxury amenities we needed for the most comfortable of stays. We had checked in late on the 30th December, and woke around 11am on New Years Eve, as we made our way out that morning we were confronted by one hell of a snow storm! The snow came down so fast it was amazing! We took the decision to go no further than the shops of Chelsea itself, this task in itself was damn hard work!

Loaded up with booze & snacks we went back to our hotel room to see in the new decade. With pizza delivered to our door, beers and champagne flowed and we watched the fireworks at midnight from our window, and saw the revelry across the world on the T.V. Ok this may sound extremely lame to you, and you will be thinking that if I was away on trip like theirs I would be out in the bars & clubs partying all night, meeting cool people and living for the moment. Well we were knackered, and cold, and glad to be in a really nice hotel, and we got to spend time together where we could just talk to each other and have a laugh. New Years Eve is also our anniversary, and this was the marker of six years together, and I would not have wanted to spend the night with anyone else anywhere else.

But I admit that spending the next couple of days holed up in the hotel was pretty pathetic, but we decided to recharge the batteries here. We made use of the pool & gym, made plans for the rest of our trip and booked the dates of our future flights. This was perfect, as it got us re-energised physically, but also mentally by getting us excited about our upcoming adventures. We have had to cut some time off our trip due to some overspending in Canada, so we will be back in Blighty on 30th June 2010. See some of you then!
