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:
