Introduction: Small Vacation to Nashville via Boston (Part 1)

Hi and welcome to my next trip report. I had a few days where I could travel and I decided to fly to Boston and Nashville.  This trip report will contain a part 1 (Boston) and a part 2 (Nashville).  Otherwise I would spend two weeks editing photos before posting about the trip. I would rather start sharing the great content.

I headed down to Dallas Fort Worth International so that I could visit a different ‘lounge’, The Minute Suites.  The Minutes Suites are located in Terminal D, not too far from the American Express Centurion Lounge.

I could not get a direct United Airlines’ flight to Boston, so I was routed through Washington-Dulles. The start to the flight was a bit contentious because a flight attendant did not know the photography policy.  After takeoff, service was great and I had the best dessert of my life…yes, on an airplane.

To maximize my time at Dulles, I decided to try out the Turkish Airlines’ Lounge. It was small, but did not feel cramped.

After a short time in the lounge, I headed back to my gate for the short flight to Boston.

The hotel that I chose in Boston was the Marriott Waterfront. It was my first time to visit the property and I had a decent stay.

In the lobby of the Marriott was Sapore Restaurant.  It was a gorgeous place to visit, the food and service were amazing.

I have visited the Sam Adams’ Brewery in Jamaica Plains, so I thought it would be only right to visit the Harpoon Brewery located just down the road for comparison…yeah, that’s it.

My last stop was the Union Oyster House.  If you have never visited the restaurant, you should add it to your list of things to do in Boston…or just go to Cheers like everyone else.

This trip was fun, but exhausting. I am happy to be home for a few weeks.  Thanks again for reading along, it is much appreciated.
