Oh,  SUMMER  2017!  You  are  one  of  the  unforgettable.  Lots  of  things  happened  this  year. One  of  those  is  that,  I  travelled  to  the  United  States  of  America  for  the  first  time.  Like  all the  “first  time  explorers”,  we  got  carried  away  by  all  the  places  we  want  to  visit  in  a  short period  of  time.  It  was  indeed  fun  and  crazy!  Let  me  share  to  you  the  places  I  have  been. 


The trip to the next destination was crazier than the first. Due to lack of research before we arrived, we got lost again. We then found out that our hotel is far from the city centre – a bummer, I tell you. It was sunny and hot! We loved the weather but in a "panic-try-to-find-our-way" mode, the heat was literally in our head. Luckily, Americans are very helpful and approachable. We found our route.




Next stop, WASHINGTON D.C.!




Mega bus -> Train -> Change train -> Mini bus to Dallas Airport -> Hotel service bus



It was like a rollercoaster ride! We reached our hotel with grumbling stomach. We explored the hotel right away and found some noodles from the establishment’s mini grocery! We stayed there until the next day.
