My first ever trip to the United States- Part 2

So continuing with my last blog. Sorry for the gap between the last post and this one. A lot has happened since then. I lost a very good friend of mine in car accident. It was totally unexpected and shocking. I miss him. A lot. 😦 And also I got my semester results which are pretty good. That means I finally got the ‘Graduate’ tag.

Now coming back to my post. So on 22nd May I reached the San Francisco Airport. And I immediately fell in love with the climate there. It was cold around 13°c. We don’t get that in Mumbai here so yea, it’s like Christmas for us, more like Southern Indians to experience such a cold and chilly climate. In SF, we visited the Golden Gate bridge. Oh yea, it’s a pretty view.

And we did sightseeing there. We went on cruise which gave us the tour and a close view of Golden Gate bridge. Then after two days in SF, we boarded our flight to Las Vegas. The atmosphere was okay-ish almost close to my city temperature. Las Vegas is a small city. There 90% people are torist and remaining residents. And it’s a place where you lose money and not gain. You guys trust me, LV is definitely not a place to visit with your folks. Never. Ever. Because for me it was pretty awkward to walk around the streets with people wearing skimpy and close to nothing, surrounding us. I was with my dad so you get me right? And coming from a conservative community and Indian society, you will sympathise with me. And being with my folks I couldn’t enjoy much of LV as well. I couldn’t go to strip clubs or casinos or drink. Umm well being underage was another reason too. Overall LV’s nightlife is pretty happening and something to experience.

When we were in LV, we also visited the Grand Canyon. It’s a beautiful view but boring as well. And a long and tiring journey from Las Vegas.

After Las Vegas, my last stop was Los Angeles. It was pleasant just like San Fran. And lovely too. I saw places like the Dolby theatre where oscars are held, then the Beverly Hill street and Santa Monica beach and sight seeing as well.

So that’s all the “Good” pics I could find among thousands I clicked. In all I had loads of fun on this trip and made many memories. I would love to and will definitely visit all these places again. Trust me people, travelling helps you in life a lot. It takes your time off of bad things happening in life and helps you get your head straight and start new and think positively. And this is just beginning for me and many other places to check off my list. Hope you loved this blog and wasn’t too long.

Until next time!

  1. Hi…I lived in Los Angeles for two decades (Culver City, West Hollywood, etc.) and moved with my wife to Phoenix, Arizona (gradually turning from a redneck outpost to a more diverse and inclusive state). But we decided to move to Portugal for a year and having been having the time of our lives. At least the first month that we’ve been here! The weather and flora and geography are very similar to Southern Cal, so that part is nice and familiar. But we love being in a place where we don’t speak the language (yet, but learning) and in a culture that is so old. Cheers to you and your travels! (If you return to the states, hope you get to settle in one place for a while; it makes all the difference in how you view the U.S.) Nelson
