Oh yes I have !
I spent 15 days in the U.S September 2009. My girlfriend was living there since May, so I was I kind of lonely here and as had some money kept in my bank account, I decided to visit her. The whole process wasn't easy, I got the passport, Visa, tickets, bag, everything, but there is no money that pay it when you get in the U.S. Since I started studying English, my dream was go to the U.S, and I made it come true last year.
My trip was wonderful ! I stayed in Schenectady
, state of New York
. It's a small town about 15 minutes from Albany ( the New York State Capital ).
I could know the Albany University ( http://www.albany.edu/
) which is amazing ! It's like in the movies that see all that people around, playing some kind of sport after class or just sitting on the lawn.
I went to NY city either. I could know the Empire State Building ( http://www.esbnyc.com/index2.cfm?CFID=38238998&CFTOKEN=20677670
), The Madson Square Garden, Statue of Liberty, Ground Zero, Times Square and the Madame Tussauds Museum ( Museu de cera ). I stayed in NY city for 2 days and it wasn't enough to enjoy as much as wanted. When you're in N.Y city the time flies and when you see the time, it's time to go home.
Ow...I almost forgot. I went to the Bronx
to watch a baseball game. The New York Yankees the biggest baseball time in the U.S ! I have no words to describe it.
I'm gonna give one advice. If you one day you guys have a chance to go abroad, no matter where is the place, just go ! You will see how wonderful is to know other culture, speak another language and meet different people.
You anybody wants some help or just ask about anything on my trip like, VISA, passport, tickets, I can help you. I'm saying that because I got everything on my own to my trip, since the passport until the VISA. I didn't have any help of agency or something like that.
