I haven’t been so exhausted in a long time. I was in Boston for 5 days and it absolutely wore me out, but I’m so glad that we got to see so much of the city and do lots of fun, touristy stuff! When we first arrived, we had a yummy lunch at Forum where I had the best burger ever!! Then we headed up to Top of the Hub to take in some views of Boston. Next time I’d like to see it at night!
For dinner the first night, a few of us headed to Pier 6 in Charlestown, a waterfront restaurant with a great view of the Boston skyline. The meal was complete with oysters and scallops, a seafood-lover’s dream!
Our class had a big meal together at The Barking Crab where I had my first “lobstah roll.” And don’t you just love our super bright t-shirts?
The PA challenge bowl was crazy!! The teams went in first to find our seats and anxiously await our schools. They blasted the music and it was one big dance party. Then all of the schools rushed in to find seats near their teams. Out of 70 teams, only 36 made it on stage and unfortunately Campbell didn’t get to go up there, but we still had a blast.
Boston Commons was absolutely gorgeous and luckily we explored this on a warm day. I love the combination of nature with the big city, sure makes for a great backdrop!
Ryan and I headed over to Cambridge to visit Harvard on his last day. Such a beautiful and historic school, but not much else to do other than that. We did have a delicious burger at Mr. Bartley’s Burgers, where they filmed one of the scenes in The Social Network.
Ryan & I explored Newbury Street which is full of shops and eateries!
I even got to meet up with Biana from B Loved Boston (please excuse how tired I look… it was a long week). It was so great to meet & hang out with a fellow blogger from another city!
This is me trying to look professional before the conference at 8 am… that was rough! We sat in on some student sessions on surviving clinical rotations & preparing for the PANCE.
