Park View Apartment in Providence, Rhode Island

For our trip last summer to visit some major universities in the Northeast, we chose Providence, Rhode Island as our home base. Park View Apartment was among the cheapest housing options we found for our week-and-a-half-long stay in Providence. However, staying there turned out to be more delightful than we had expected thanks to the owners’ quirky sense of humor, the unique and whimsical interior decor as well as its position right across the street from a neighborhood park. When we stayed there, David and I would sit together on the front porch to drink tea and coffee while looking at the early-morning walkers and joggers in the park. Hence the apartment’s name Park View.

We were sufficiently entertained at Park View Apartment. I was amused to find a hilarious bathroom book already placed on the water tank of the toilet when we got there. There was a Wii machine hooked-up to the TV for James to play his video games in the mornings. For Jacob’s entertainment, we found the Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown on one of the bookshelves there.

May all travelers find unexpected delights on their journeys as we did in Providence.

About David and Lam

A smitten couple and loving parents in our early 40s. We have lived in 3 different countries together. We dream of living in a fourth country together after our children grow up. We love long walks in the woods, climbing mountains, boating, traveling, reading, and being together. Both David and Lam are old souls who love quietness and meaningful conversations in which we ponder the truth and mysteries of life as well as discuss philosophical and ethical matters. We especially like to enjoy the small pleasures of daily life.
