Life as I'd always known would be changed forever.
As I celebrate this date and all that I lived after that I'd like to share my top 3 trips in the US of A, the country that sparkled my wanderlust and was my home and playground for a year and a half.
It was my first American trip and it was a “must do”. Five days of incredible, magic, fun, dreamy stuff. Everything looked so unreal, I couldn’t stop smiling and thinking “Oh my God, I’m really here”. We would walk around all day and pass out on our beds at night.
We were even invited to participate in the opening ceremony of Hollywood Studios. What a blast! That was my favorite day. Plus, we got the first ride on Rock ‘n Rollercoaster. Alone. Before everyone was allowed in. Teehee! We also got fast passes for the Tower of Terror and rode it twice. Fun, fun, fun!
Beach. Party. Beach. Repeat!
We stayed at a cheap hostel a couple of blocks from South Beach. It was beeeeautiful!
We made new friends and drove with them to Key West.
We missed our flight to NJ because of that.
Just another adventure on a fun-filled week.
Oooh, yeah! Ca.li.for.nia, baby.
Someone should have told me – in time – that San Francisco was much nicer than L.A. I only spent one day there and I was all by myself, but IT – WAS – AWESOME. The city is beautiful, the piers, Alcatraz, the hills, the bridge. It FEELS good to be there.
L.A is overrated. I found it dirty and a bit boring. I visited the Hollywood sign, Santa Monica beach, the Walk of Fame. The most fun was on my last night there, on West Hollywood (gay dancing clubs, Woohoo!). Maybe my expectations were too high. Or my judgment was clouded by San Francisco + Vegas + The Grand Canyon.
I took a bus tour to the Grand Canyon. It is still THE most amazing thing of nature I have seen in my life. It’s ridonkulously gigantic and gorgeous. It made me feel so small and my problems disappeared. I sat there for a long time reflecting on that and feeling good and light.
We spent two nights in the Sin City. It’s a shame that I was alone, so I didn’t gamble or party. I didn’t really feel like it, though. Vegas is such an absurd city. So bright and colorful and fake.
All in all it was a fantastic time :)
