Earlier this year I had almost two months of for break between the two semesters. In that time, I moved from a sharehouse to this dorm room…
About 4 days in, I realised I had another 3 weeks of holidays until the semester started back, so I thought I’d give my parents a ring. It went something like this..
Lisha: Hi Dad, it’s me.
Dad: What do you want?
Lisha: I have two weeks left of holidays and I was thinking…Maybe, if you guys were keen, … and I know it’s a big favour to ask, but I thought I would ask just in case…and since I’m on holidays…
Dad: Spit it out.
Lisha: Can I please borrow $2000 from you and Mum to go to overseas, maybe the States?
Dad: I’ll think about it.
(the next day)
Dad: What day do you start university?
Lisha: the 27th…
(the next, next day)
Dad: I’m at the travel agent, I just booked you a flight to America for Monday, in three days, you can have it for your birthday. You fly back on the 27th.
And so I went to America.
I flew straight to Boston (25 hours of flying!!) and met up with a few old exchange students. I spent just under a week in Greenland, NH, Portsmouth, NH, Concord, NH and Boston, MA before doing the following road trip:
I had a pretty spectacular time and that’s why I’m headed back to America next month. I want to see more moose, even though they intimidated me alot, I want to see snow. I want to see NYC. I want to see a baseball game and a football game. I want to see the Grand Canyon and go to Six Flags and eat a hot dog and cross the brooklyn bridge.
