Working in the crisis communication industry, my days turn into nights in a split second. It certainly makes me appreciate my leisure time much more than when I was a student.

(Should I write a post on “what to do after graduating from college” and share some job-hunting, gradschool-applying tips with you? Let me know in the comment :) !) 

Greg, one of my best friends who is also working, found himself in the same situation. We simply appreciate being out of office and away from computer.

As a result, we decided to have a picnic by the Charles river after work. Best decision everrr!

We each fetched some goods and strolled across the bridge straight to the river…

… and cheers with a view!

There are several docks by the river, you can easily find a spot to sit.

Happy people gather here with food, drinks and music in beautiful weathers.

We sat in fresh breeze, watched the sun got swallowed by the river and left the sky in rusty orange.

Fifi and her brother joined us right when desserts were served.

If you’re tired of the usual routine, restaurants, bars, clubs, or just want to stay away from noisy people, I definitely recommend a picnic with friends, a date, or just yourself to the Charles river.

FYI. when the night sky rises and the city lights switch on, they flicker in the river upside down. It’s a pretty dope view to have :p
