Boston and New York bound...can we do it on a budget?

March 6th, 2012 at 05:19 am

I have signed up for a training and get to go to Boston next month. I have a mileage plan that had an offer to buy a companion ticket for $99- (my job is paying my expenses)...since the hub will be in Alaska that week, I asked DD1 to go with me. We are both so excited. We decided to go for a few extra days and take the train to New York. Neither of us have ever been to the East this a true adventure.

DD1 is charged with figuring out where we are going to stay and what we will do in New York. I have to pay for those 3 job is paying for the other 3 that we will be in Boston. She will have the two days I am in classes to tour Boston.

So fun!!

I am not sure how much to budget..I have heard its expensive in both places...especially for meals.

The hub is heading back to Alaska Wed, so DD1 and I will probably sit down this weekend to start putting the plan together.

My mom has been gone two years today. Hard to believe. My dad used to buy her cut flowers and when he got too sick to do it, my mom would buy them for him to this morning, I stopped and picked up some pink and white tulips for my desk. It made me smile to think of them...much better than feeling blue all day.

    The last time I was in either of those cities was in the mid-90s. If possible, try to take in a play - even if it is an off-Broadway one - it feels quite similar. Smile Definitely go check out Fao Scharwtz - you can just look. Wink (See movie Big for an idea of what it's like.)

    In Boston see if you can do the duck boats (swan boats - something like that ...) and of course the square that starts with T (Traflaqur??)

    Most of all though, have fun! Big Grin
