I set my alarm very early because of my stupid mistake. I was supposed to get to a bus in NYC at 11AM and arrived at Boston around 4PM. But...
MY ARRIVAL IN BOSTON WAS 11AM!!!
That's right. I had to be at the bus station by 7AM and arrived at Boston at 11AM. That's why I had to set my alarm at 5AM. It wasn't fun.
Well, it turned out to be quite good for commuting. NYC wasn't busy at all at 5AM. The city get busy around 8-9AM because the traffic in the morning was very awful. I was ready at the bus station by 6:30AM. The bus ticket from NYC to Boston was only $15!!!
"Text me when you get to Boston and I'll pick you up."
Nancy was a good friend from my high school. The last time I met her was before I was graduated from Horwang School, more than 10 years. I saw her pictures in USA many times and I finally sent her a question, Do you live in the U.S?
I was staying with Nancy and Lin, boyfriend, but now he is her fiancé. Nancy own a Thai restaurant in Boston named Bamboo Thai. The competition was very high. She told me. I stay at her apartment next by the restaurant. Free place to stay and food, I did a photo shoot for her and her fiancé in exchange.
My goals of coming to Boston is to visit an old friend and travel. I love taking skyline pictures. I always look for a observatory in each city and get to the top. I waited for a couple hours before sunset until night time. I shot many skyline pictures of Boston on the first day and I was so happy already. This trip was worth.
When I told people after I came back from NYC and Boston trip for 7 days, they told me I'm rich. NOOOOO, I'm not rich at all. Travel is not expensive. I always look for cheap tickets and stay with friends. People have money but no time. I'm investing in my life. Ill keep continue traveling.
