Goodbye UK, Hello Boston!

So today I finally made the trip from the UK across the pond to Boston for the first leg of my trip.
For the first 2 weeks I am lucky enough to have my family travel with me and have to cut split a little. Although at first this may sound like a god send, it is slowly turning into a nightmare due to me quitting smoking and the high level of stress that airports seem to bring with them.

We left the house at 6:30am GMT this morning and made our way to Heathrow. We got their, checked in our bags and went through security really quickly. I was surprised at how quick we did it, but it meant that we could have some breakfast and chill out. I then realised that I forgot my teddy and was horrified at the thought of going to sleep without him. I’ll find a replacement until may family get home and send him out.

Anyway, so we flew out with British Airways at 11:15am GMT and made our way across the pond.
It was the longest 7 hours of my life.
I did watch a couple of films (Deadpool, Room, The Jungle Book) and fell asleep for some of it. I got really bored and every part of my body was starting to fall to pieces after a while.
But we made it.

I was quite nervous about going through American Immigration, but it was fine. There were no horror stories and everyone was really nice.
So far Boston is a really nice place to be!

We got to the hotel and realised that we were a bed down, which now means that I am sleeping on a mattress on the floor. Which I am not overly happy about, but I am in Boston for a whole 2 nights and I am half asleep anyway. So we are trying to go to bed really late and trying get rid of any type of jet lag that we will get. So we are currently having a night in after a trip out for Dinner to 5 Napkin Burgers and 7 Eleven.
I am really impressed with the amount of customer service in America so far! I got a bottomless Root Beer  and kept those bad boys coming. I am trying to eat something green with every meal and I succeed today. We shall see how long that lasts.

We have a long arse day tomorrow, so I will write another blog post on the Train on Saturday, when we move on to New York!

Keep and eye out,
