These past two days I’ve been in downtown Boston using Airbnb for the first time. Why? Good question. Just kidding. Nick yesterday and today is taking the Bar at the Hynes Convention Center and came up with the idea that it would be good to stay in Boston those two nights so he could just get up and walk over. Finding any excuse to change things up and being supportive I was into it and began looking at all the hotels around. Everything in the area was either all filled up or at least $400/night. I then all of a sudden thought of Airbnb and all our problems went away. The one I picked is a cute small studio that’s off Commonwealth Ave off the mall and a block before the gardens. It’s fun to pretend that I live in downtown.
This is actually the first time I’ve stayed in downtown Boston, having lived in the area my entire life (since I was 2). Copley Square feels completely different knowing that I have a bed to walk to at the end of the night,
Staying here makes me miss city life. I am excited to move back to Oak Square in September. It’s not Copley Square but it has a good balance of everything I need within walking distance and then the interstate 5 minutes away. I also have fond associations with Oak Square because that’s where Nick and I first met, had our first date and where he lived during the first year and a half of our relationship. Returning to it as our first place together as a couple seems fitting.
