Blast from the Past

by Richard Evans

Jul 28, 2009

Today I find myself in Boston. As a New Yorker, I naturally cringe when I think about entering the hometown of the Boston Red Sox and infamous Fenway Park. But I will let you all in on a secret — I actually enjoy spending time in Boston! I arrived last night, driving up from New York. I made great time and arrived at the Lenox Hotel in time for a late dinner.  The city has charm, and it is beautiful to stroll around on warm summer evenings.  Last night was more exceptional, thanks to the fact that many of my friends from my days at the University of Vermont migrated to Boston after graduation. I was able to meet one of my college roommates for dinner.  We laughed the entire time, recalling stories from our college days. There were more pranks than I remembered, and even the waitress couldn’t help but laugh when she heard our stories. I still enjoy hearing my parents recount their college stories during get-togethers with their college roommates. The times between visits may be large, sometimes spanning years, but the smiles on their faces as they remember the past truly light up a room. I find it hard to believe how far away my college days are from me, but I will always look forward to reliving those great days with my college friends for years to come. -Alex Young, vice president and associate publisher Global Traveler has joined the world of social marketing.
