Yannou in Buenos Aires

Yannou in Buenos Aires

Yannou is a friend who moved from France to Boston a few years ago.  He recently moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina for work.  This was his temporary home while he searched for an apartment in town.  Looks like Yannou is doing just fine.

While not exactly sunny and warm, Julian and Brian are two of my favorite Bostonians.  They snapped this photo while visiting New Orleans last week. The weather wasn’t exactly hot but for Bostonians anyplace that doesn’t have 6′ of snow and temperatures in the 30s qualifies as downright balmy – have pity on us.

Lastly here is a relaxing photograph of Peter enjoying the shade provided by a palm tree in Puerto Rico.  Thanks for sharing.

Warm weather pics from Brazil

I should have realized when I asked for pictures of people in warm locations that Brazil would make more than a few appearances.  It is an excellent refuge from the Northern Hemisphere and I am lucky to have so many friends who live there. Below are photos of friends from Minas Gerais, Brazil.

You might think that Thiago is in the midst of the obligatory Corcovado pose, but if you look closely you will see him grinning.  I think he’s inferring something else a bit more naughty. Perhaps his boyfriend Kirk (shown below) can clarify.

Perhaps I reached a breaking point or maybe I’m just missing the recent vacation Sergio and I took to Grand Cayman earlier this February. Either way, on Monday I asked readers to share their warm weather photos and a few of you took me up on my request (thank you by the way).

Do you live some place that is warm year round or have you happened to take a vacation somewhere warm to escape the winter? I’d love to share a photo of you smiling in the sun.

Email me your warm weather photo at bosguymail@gmail.com. All I ask is that you include your name (just first name is fine) and where you are.

Sergio in Grand Cayman

Email your warm weather photo to bosguymail@gmail.com

Boston has had a brutal winter so far (and there is no relief in sight). Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are awash in photos of friends traveling to warmer destinations (and even a few from people living in warmer climates inviting Bostonians to come and visit).

Email me your warm weather photo at:  bosguymail@gmail.com

I’d like to post pictures of anyone who would like to share a photo of themselves in a warmer climate.  All I ask is that you include your name (just first name is fine) and where you are.  I’ve gotten things started by sharing a photo of Sergio in Grand Cayman at Stingray City.  Now it is your turn to share a picture of you someplace warm.

 

How are you surviving the winter

how to survive a boston winterI hate to be a jerk to those who live in colder climates, but the winter weather will not be ending anytime soon.   To help you avoid a case of the winter blues, this past fall I wrote a five part series outlining how to survive a Boston winter.

Included in my list of tips were suggestions like, booking a trip to go some place warm; finding yourself a cuddle buddy; and tips on how chocolate can help. However it was my fourth tip in the series that I suggest you seriously consider and give a try: visit the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.

Aside from the Gardner being a beautiful place, the museum has a tiny garden that has flowers and grass.  Sit by the courtyard (preferably on a sunny day) and let the sunlight filter down to the ground level.  Enjoy the smell of the grass and flowers, and look at all the colors.  Trust me when I tell you this is some of the best therapy you can get in Boston to fend off a bad case of the winter blues.
