And now I’m planning a move there.
that’s how much I loved it. Amazing atmosphere, very city, but still very laid back. Loved to local pubs, shopping, not to mention the historic value of it all.
and the culture? incredible. The people come off as rough, but are really very friendly and helpful. We had somewhat drunken, very rough looking men just give my mother, sister and I their red sox tickets (and this was the season after they won the world series!!!!) because we had never been to one. (they had people all around them selling for 150$ a ticket!) then we went in and made friends with EVERYONE in the stands. we were even invited by them to go out to the pub afterwards.
seriously, amazing. My favorite place in the world.over 6 years ago
