Shipping up to Boston - from the cheap seats

The just passed, and gone too quickly, long weekend was a most productive one.

We've booked into some lovely accommodation through the wonder of expedia.co.nz and our credit cards are struggling under the weight!

Except for our final two nights in NYC (we're looking for something totally P.I.M.P - any suggestions?), we now have a roof over our heads for the first two weeks and last seven days of our trip.

In New York, we're staying in QUEENS (just like The Nanny!) at the Country Inn & Suites By Carlson. We've managed to score a rather nice room with free breakfast, wifi and - most importantly - city views!

Like us you might have thought of our whole trip NYC would be the most expensive place to lay your head - but how wrong were we.

That title has so far been awarded to the lovely city of Boston.

A boyfriend in love with the Dropkick Murphys is the reason behind our two day detour north & of course there is a lot of history in the area so I'm sure we'll love the city.

But, DAMN, the only reasonably priced places to stay are at least 30mins drive from the city, so with us relying on public transport we've caved to a nice place in the centre of town, the Radisson Hotel Boston.

So in celebration of the most expensive city in the USA, here is a rousing tune from the DKMs, Shipping Up To Boston.
