Originally from Armenia, I live in Boston for many years. My house is one of many beautiful Victorian houses in oldest neighborhoods in Boston (Dorchester). The house is beautiful, big, clean and colors are my addition to its charm. I love colors you can see it in the pictures.
I love the idea of B&B and now I have chance to host people from the world in my own house. Traveling is part of my life and staying with family opens chance to meet local people.
I share what I know about Boston with pleasure and sometimes I learn from travelers what they discovered in Boston.
