I am Boston born and bred. I went to elementary, high school and university in this incredible city. My boyfriend, Jason, grew up in Hong Kong and came to Boston for college. He and I travel internationally for several months durng the year, but always come back to this city for its incredible food, fun atmosphere, and because it's our home. We live in the 'burbs (about 15 minutes away) with our Siberian Husky, Sledder.
The two of us have grown up traveling. We've experienced five-star accommodations from our previous "business" careers in management consulting (Nicole) and accounting (Jason). We have also traveled through the Jordanian desert sleeping in Bedouin tents and with Northern Thailand families in bamboo huts. The common denominator that we feel makes a wonderful accommodation is when a home-y and comfortable space. We've designed the apartment with this in mind. All ceramic pottery pieces were designed by my Aunt Sally. All framed prints and canvases were photographed by Jason or myself.
When traveling, our main focus is always food. We love our meats and seafood. The one thing that makes my eyes pop is dessert. Jason is all about his red wine, scotch and other classic drinks. Our second focus is the local experience. There is so much more to a city than historical buildings, duck boat tours, and the Freedom trail (all of which are amazing). There are the North End side streets for delicious lobster rolls, local markets (like the South End SOWA), and really interesting one-day volunteer opportunities.
About us: We met at Bentley University, both studying accounting and finance, but we are proud to say that we are recovering corporate monkeys. We both manage our own photography businesses - mine in wedding photography and his in medium-format film landscapes and portraits. Jason is also studying for his masters at Boston University.
