Boston Vlog Part 2: Chinatown, visiting Fenway Park & Boston in the fall

What a way to spend my last international trip of 2022. Flying business class with United Airlines from London Heathrow to Boston, Massachusetts, for a weekend of exploring the larges, most walkable city in the USA. [ad press trip] This trip was a press trip with United Airlines, Travel Up and the Boston Tourism Board. There was so much to cram in that I've split it across two vlogs – here's Part 1 - enjoy!From those beautiful fall colours at Boston Common and visiting Fenway Park – home of the Red Sox, to tasting the famous lobster rolls and fresh oysters the city is known for. We explored art, culture, heritage and history as we walked the streets of Boston, USA, and even took to the water for a "Duck Tour" around the harbour. If you've ever wanted to visit Boston – I've found the best things to do in Boston and have written a guide to the best 22, including tips on how to travel there and where to stay.Check out my blog post for a full itinerary and where we stayed: https://absolutelylucy.com/22-best-things-to-do-in-boston-usa/Don't forget to LIKE and SUBSCRIBE if you want to see more videos from me :-)For those who are new to this channel, I'm Lucy, a solo female travel blogger from the UK, who loved adventure travel, music festivals and vanlife.

>> My SECRET tactics for getting AMAZING photos and videos when travelling solo 🤫I’ve been travelling solo for a decade and capturing every moment of my adventures. But how? The truth is it’s actually far easier than you think to get amazing content when you travel whether it’s for your scrapbook or Instagram 😉5 top tips for getting amazing travel content when on a solo adventure 📸📹 BUY A TRIPOD
I have never travelled without a tripod and have an amazing one from Amazon that folds up tiny and allows me to set the framing for every shot! It’s also great for she. I shoot in remote places, need to be quick or go early in the morning🎞️ ASK OTHER TRAVELLERS
Don’t be afraid to ask others to snap a photo for you or even capture a quick video - I do this all the time and find if you ask the right people, they can come out really well! Top tip - ask the young girls rather than the older couples 😉📱LEARN TO SHOOT WITH YOUR PHONE
You don’t need fancy equipment or cameras to get incredible shots, these days I alternate between my camera and my phone but all of my videos are shot on the iPhone 14 Pro Max and the quality is great. Learn the settings and how to use them to increase the quality of your photos and videos.📷 GO WITH A VISION
One thing that really helps get those amazing shots is planning - knowing before you visit what colour scheme a location is so you can wear a contrasting and complimentary outfit colour. It sounds like something only influencers do but it actually makes such a difference for making your photos and videos POP 😍💻 IT’S ALL ABOUT THE EDITING
You can take any photo or video and improve it by knowing how to edit, colour grade and even being able to remove imperfections. I love @lightroom @inshot_editing___ @capcutapp among others for quick fire edits and you can also use or develop your own presets which make editing even quicker!What tips do you have for solo travel photography?#solotravelingisfun #solotravelling #solotravelgirl #womenwhotravelsolo #solotravelers #solotravellers #solotraveltips #travellingsolo #backpackinglife #backpackinggirls #girlswhotravelsolo #girlswhotraveltheworld #glt #girlslovetravel

If you want to escape the crowds and enjoy the best of European summer, I have an amazing secret tip for you… 🤫If you’re thinking of visiting Croatia this summer, why not book a trip to Kotor, Montenegro? 🇲🇪 it’s so much quieter and has so much to offer, but feels super off the beaten track for Europe. It’s also a LOT cheaper for accommodation, meals out and flights.While it is a stop for cruise ships - you can easily avoid the crowds by visiting tourist sites early in the morning or early evening after the boats leave.

What is it really like to travel solo as a woman? I talked to @vdubradio about the differences between the ways men, women and people of colour move through this world, and the effect that has on solo travel experiences ✨Diversity in the travel space is so important. When I started solo travelling I saw no one like me online. I lacked role models for mixed race women who were fearless and travelled the world solo. I’m so happy to say this has improved tenfold since then and I have so many inspiring people in my feeds 😍My goal? To inspire women to feel safe and confident to travel the world solo ✨ whether that’s a weekend break, solo backpacking, solo adventure travel or even solo vanlife. I’m here with tips and advice learned from a decade of solo travel and digital nomadism 💻 I’ve made mistakes so you don’t have to 💪🏾 check out AbsolutelyLucy.com for my travel guides and best tips for travelling solo.Do you travel solo?
