I took a short trip to Boston this week for work for our annual team meeting.  It didn’t work out exactly as planned.  My manager had scheduled a full day of various presentations, followed by a trolley tour of Boston and dinner.  However, everything went awry when my boss’s relative passed away last week.  She rescheduled her flight so that she could attend the wake, although she’d still have to miss the funeral.  She was on track to arrive in Boston at 1:00 AM on the day of our meeting, but then her flight ended up getting canceled due to storms.  She wouldn’t have arrived until the middle of the next afternoon, and at that point, it made no sense for her to come.  On top of that, one of my coworkers had to cancel last minute for medical reasons.  So, our little group of seven dropped down to five, with no manager.  She told us to just attend our one morning presentation, eat our catered lunch, and then go amuse ourselves in Boston.

So, we made the best of an unfortunate situation.  On a positive note, the weather was great, and I had some delicious gnocchi for dinner.  Below are a few pics from my trip:

    What a beautiful city Boston looks. It is on my list of American cities to visit but I doubt I’ll ever see it. The only US city I’ve been to was Dallas though I have passed through airports in Chicago and New York. Enjoy your books!

    Too bad the trip to Boston really didn’t pan out as it should have… but seems that you managed to make the best of a bad situation!
    Ooooh, that’s very cool about the free audiobooks! I’m not a big fan of audiobooks, but maybe I’ll have to check that out!
    Nice haul, Stephanie!

    Since You’ve Been Gone has gotten great reviews so I’m very curious to hear what you think. Not my typical genre but hard to ignore all the love for it. You got to see the Cheers bar! Fun 🙂 I’ve not been to Boston myself.

    I got Since You’ve Been Gone this week too and I’m excited to read it after all the hype surrounding it.
    That’s so cool of the publishers to make free audiobooks available every week. I’m not a fan of those, but I know a lot of listeners will appreciate that.
    Enjoy your books this week! 🙂
