Benefits of traveling to USA
The United States of America were always on my bucket list. Not just because I find English in the USA much easier to understand than the British one (I’d better don’t even start about Scottish or Irish accents) but I really enjoy the American accent.
To be honest, you would NOT find the USA anywhere in my top 10 countries to visit for sure, but still the US was somewhere there for me in the upper part of the list. I never visited it until summer 2012 and it was still not because my travel bug was begging me to go (as you probably read already).
Why did it take me so long???
The biggest secret is I always wanted to visit the USA and do road trips all around passing through as many of its countries as possible.
But as you can imagine, I never found good travel buddies for that. Most of the time I travel solo as it is less difficult I think. I don’t have to wait for anyone and skip places I’d love to see just because someone else was drinking the night before and his best hangover friend did not let him to go on that exciting trip with me.
But here I go … I did put my foot into the US even though I was not going to spend my unforgettable US visit in a car looking at a stunning scenery with the air in my hair and pretending-to-be-singing loud.
At least no road trips were planned.
But when in the end I only visited East Coast for almost a month, some road trips were included. Not only bus trips, but also around Washington, then Boston, from Boston to Cape Cod and back.
Apart from breaking up with the guy I thought I was going to marry one day, visiting USA definitely still had some benefits for me.
I finally visited Big Apple. New York City, here I come!
There, I found out some surprising facts about New York City I would never know without spending some quality time there. I did know though I would fall in love with New York very quickly.
As well I could finally go up the Empire State Building and enjoy the NYC skyscrapers in all their beauty when I took a cruise around New York.
Completely out of the blue, I went to the beach in Cape Cod and was more than happy as beach and swimming pool time are one of those very few things that make me relax.
I also saw a sand shack in Cape Cod National Park Seashore where Tennessee Williams wrote a part of Streetcar named Desire – this book together with another thousands were my nightmare at the University. But let’s be honest. I was still excited to see the sand shack where the weird idea of Desire book popped out.
In the USA I felt like in a movie … and not only because I took the Sex and the City hotspot tour in NYC.
And I had a chance to fulfill one of my dreams and do whale watch in Provincetown!
So no matter where you travel, there is always something you will like. TRUST ME. It will have a lot of benefits and in the end you can even fall in love with the place like I did :)
Next time I will visit much more in the USA. Looking forward to Miami, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon and more :)
