Day 14 - New York City
Day 15 - New York City to Philadelphia/ Washington D.C
Hello September! Started the new month with a trip to HK with my best friend :) We had so much fun together and I'm thankful for the short getaway. I've so much to blog about but I still have backlogs from my trips earlier this year, which I hope to finish soon. Photos bring back so much memories!

Day 12 - Saturday 25 April 2015
One of the highlights of our Canada trip was crossing the borders to United States. Visiting the states has always been a lifelong dream and albeit being only there for 5 days, I'm in love with the city and can't wait to be back again someday! Shortly after we unpack and pack on late Friday night, we dragged ourselves up to catch the coach headed for Boston in wee hours at 4am. Barely well-rested and tired, mom and I grabbed coffee from Starbucks before our hours of ride commence. Boy, I miss coffee there. America is about 6-7 hours away, we stopped mid-way for lunch before arriving at Massachusetts, Capital of Boston in the late afternoon, where we visited Harvard and MIT university,  Our night ended with a free and easy 2 hours at Quincy Market. It was so cold we both shared a bowl of warm udon, salmon teriyaki rice and hot chocolate, so so good!

Day 13 - Sunday 26 April 2015
We had our first experience on Boston cruise ride overseeing many amazing city views followed by a very delicious and juicy lobster Chinese spread lunch on Sunday! We took another few hours of bus ride, dropped by Yale University before arriving Times Square @ New York City. For few minutes, we stood in the middle, wondering where to head to. It feels so magical to be in the heart of the city that never sleeps, experiencing something genuinely American :)

Day 14 - Monday 27 April 2015
Day 3 was all about NYC. We visited Wall Street, went up to Top of the Rock, experienced an unforgettable stunning paranomas of the city's beauty,  had 4 hours of free & easy time along fifth avenue, Madison Avenue and of course, coffee. We spent the later noon at Intrepid museum, which was pretty boring, another NY cruise with perfecto view of statue of liberty and a dinner buffet! I didn't had much chance to miss chinese food because I ate chinese mostly in states. Haha!

Day 15, 16 - Tues/Wed 28/29 April 2015
We left NYC early morning and traveled towards Philadelphia and then Washington D.C. There were so many places we visited and some highlights were Madame Tussaud, space and air museum where we had our last MacD, white house, parliament house, Lincoln memorial, Washington monument. In a trip, I've learnt so much more about the history and landmarks of America. By end of the fourth day, I was tired of tours and can't wait to head back to Toronto. More than half of day 5 was spent sitting on bus and making our way back. 

Travel is the only thing you buy, that makes you richer. So True.
