Hello, everyone, and this is a travel blog on my trip to America (USA).
For a very long time, I have been interested in the idea of visiting North America, and so I decided to do just that. The journey there is accompanied by a 40-45-hour plane ride, with a few stops on the way. On this long plane ride, there are many amazing sights to see, and that's before we even reach our destination!
Over the course of this journey, you are certain to fly over the vast, blue Atlantic Ocean. In every direction, wild, untamed water, as far as the eye can see. Above you, white, gentle clouds, wispy in appearance, and so close that you feel you could reach out and touch it. Below you, the ocean blue, spanning a large majority of the Earth in size.
My journey over the ocean was a pleasant one. In just 3 hours’ time, we were at our first stop, Istanbul. We would arrive this day at about 6:45 PM, only to learn that there was a 16-hour layover. Plenty of time to explore the country, but it is probably best that I get some rest
for the journey ahead of me; I will retire to a nearby hotel for the night, as I have a plane to catch at 11:30 AM, and the next flight connected will be a 3 hour and 30 minute flight to Brussels. The night itself was not very eventful, but the culture in Istanbul was wondrous for the eye to see!
I awaken, well rested, to head to the airport a few hours early, as proper protocol recommends. Today is the day I make it to America, my destination! The attendant calls our names, not much later, and we begin to board our flight. There are people of many varieties around, from many different nationalities, and walks of life! We reach Brussels at about 3:00 PM, and board our plane for Montreal, Canada, shortly afterwards.
This is the longest part of our journey, being a 7-hour flight. It is now about 10:30 pm, and we've made it to Montreal. I suppose it is once again a great time to take a nap, as tomorrow will be a long day. I awaken at 7:00 AM to enjoy some breakfast, compliments of the nearby lodgings I resided in for the
night. Canada seems like a beautiful place to visit! Surely, I will have to plan a trip to spend more time there someday, but for now, I have a plane to catch. We board the plane that is scheduled to depart at 9:00 AM; We have a 4-hour flight ahead of us, to our destination, John Glenn International Airport, located in Columbus, Ohio! The plane begins to lift off, and we depart.
There are so many sights to see down below! As we leave Canada, we fly over Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and into Ohio! I reach my destination just past lunch time and disembark on our journey to explore. My friend is here to pick me up, and we decide to have some dinner at the Airport, as the accommodations seem rather reasonable, and I am famished after having such an early breakfast. We finish our meals and set out into the world.
There are many sights to see in the big city! Neon lights are all around, there are people everywhere, and the city is bustling with activity. We pass through the city and begin to go south. Upon leaving the outskirts of the city, there
are beautiful farmlands in every direction you can see. Farm animals such as Horses, Cows, Pigs, and more seem rather abundant here! Many people seem to be hard at work, as they aim to provide for the local provinces and counties. We pass through many small towns, as we travel through the state, each unique in their own little ways.
We pass through Delaware, and I begin to see a recurring theme within this state. Outside of the larger cities, there are many smaller, more articulate downs, with many beautiful, but dated buildings, dating back to a hundred years ago or more. This theme seems to continue itself in most towns we pass through, but I'm never without something to keep my eye upon.
It is late now, and I look to the west. Behind stunning hills, filled with organic crops as far as the eye can see, the beautiful sunrise, cast through the sky, begins to set. Although there may not seem to be much to this land, it is almost enchanting in its own way; the people are charming, the areas in which I've stopped in America were fairly hospitable, and locals were rather friendly!
As the bleak moon rose above us, many stars in the night sky became visible above our heads. Perhaps, I would follow tradition and camp out with my friend for the night. Surely, this is a sight to see. The view is stunning, and I am simply in awe. This was a journey I would make again, spent with someone I care about, as we plan for future travels together.
