Everyone loves a Boston girl. This is the story of one Boston girl's adventures in the city, in blogging, and in getting through those crazy 20-something years.

I'm a writer by trade. And by passion. I'm a lover of food, friends, and all things Boston. I listen to music pretty much 24/7 and idolize Martha Stewart. I love my job(s), my life, and this city. Follow me on Twitter! @Susie

take a shower on the mbta. er, with the mbta?

A few weeks ago, I was just sitting all innocently at my computer when an email popped up. A potentially life-changing email. OK, so not really life-changing, but still pretty awesome. It was from a company called Izola Shower. And they wanted to know if I’d like to have an MBTA shower curtain. Would I like to have an MBTA shower curtain?! Um, did they even have to ask?? Well, they probably did so they could have my shipping address. But other than that, they did not have to ask.

OK, let me be clear on a few things. I am not really a fan of the MBTA. Mainly because it’s dirty, I get nauseous every time I’m on it, and it stops too much with no explanation. However, I appreciate the MBTA because it generally gets me where I need to go, which is more than people in many other cities can say. Plus, it’s a pretty complex system that can even get me to my parents’ house with not too much effort. Oh and plus, it’s cheaper than a cab.

So, you can bet I hung this little bugger up (I actually hung it in my boyfriend’s bathroom since my roommate looks at my funny whenever I want to make a personal change to the apartment, but that’s whole other story) right when I got it. Because why wouldn’t I want the entire MBTA system map hanging in the bathroom?

Check. it. out.


My only disappointment is that you can’t view the map from the inside of the shower. Because I was actually really excited to figure out my daily plan of attack while IN the shower. But instead I have to stand outside of the shower to view all the MBTA routes. BUT, I can always look at it while I’m brushing my teeth so NBD. Also, if I reallyyy want to, I can just get another shower curtain and hang it on the inside of the shower too. Bam, problem solved.

And trust me, ALL the routes are there. Even for the commuter rail! Absolutely anything you want to know about any MBTA route is here. In the bathroom.


Izola has lots of other shower curtain maps too, like a Chicago transit map for all my Chicago buddies and an NYC MTA for all you NYCers. But they also have other fun shower curtains too for you know, if you don’t care to stare at your daily commute every time you’re in the bathroom.

But I do enjoy staring at my daily commute in the bathroom. Probably mostly because I don’t have a daily commute. Seriously though, I love my new MBTA shower curtain and think it’s definitely a necessity for every Boston girl. Now. Where should we go next?!?! I’ll map it out.

    oh looks good, but what about the room mate and change to the apartment? Sounds like an interesting story…!

    I want that!

    LOL… I feel so disappointed that there is no Seattle related curtains. The city skyline would make for a pretty awesome one.

    I think I am going to have to email them.

    You could use it as the liner inside of the shower (because it seems waterproof) and get a different decorative shower curtain for the outside. This way you’ll be able to read your map while in the shower.

    I’m going to buy this and do the same. I’m from Boston too, but am living in Vegas now. I’m homesick, so this might make me happy. 🙂 Thanks for posting!
