Our flight from Dallas landed at about midnight Boston time, which was nine for us. We made our way to our hotel, the Windham Chelsey, though not before getting very, very lost. We checked out at nine o’clock and took our rental car to Lexington, where we visited the birthplace of the American Revolution. We then drove out to Concord, where we visited Concord Bridge, the site of the second battle of the Revolution.

After we made a visit to Walden Pond, we turned back and headed for Boston Logan. We returned our car to the rental car office, which was filled with advertisements for the Edward Kennedy Institute for the U.S. Senate, where I, as a politics nerd myself, was interested in.

We took the bus to the airport, where we were greeted by this guy.


We checked in at a counter with no line and made our way up to the United Club.


I must say that the lounge looked really nice. The huge windows had amazing views onto the tarmac, from which you could see all kinds of aircraft.






The snack spread was not, well, extensive. They had a few snack mixes to be dolled out from the “Snack Towers of Sadness”, as well as some actually pretty good Tillamook cheeses. They also had the standard United Club fruit. I was very amused that the domestic United Club at BOS had a higher quality snack selection than the one at Tokyo Narita, which my dad and I checked out during our time at the airport before our flight to Seoul.


The seating was comfortable, and came with great views if you chose a seat by the window. Perhaps the most interesting that that we saw was a Lufthansa 747-400



We had about two hours at BOS, and our gate turned out to be right below us, so we weren’t in a hurry. My sister and I played Uno, the favorite RG travel card game, and I watched some of the planes passing us by. I even saw our plane taxiing up to our gate!

Soon enough, though, we had to head down to the gate. There, our 757-200 waited for us.
