Summer School in USA

Last summer break, I went on a two weeks vacation to United State of America with my best friends. We visited various tourist attraction cities such as  NewYork, Washington DC, and Boston. I had been looking forward to this trip for almost a year. Well, You don’t usually get to go on a trip with your friends, especially when you have asian parents. And due to luck, I have experience it. A trip with my friends give  me a whole new views on things. I not only become more independent yet I also learn how to manage my own time and things. I think getting to go on trips with your friends sometimes are really good for growing teenagers. One of the tourist attraction and a must-visit place is the Empires state building, since it is the second tallest building in New York. I guarantee you it is the best place to star gaze at the same time you could see the color and beauty of the city from above. Moreover, we visited Times square, it represents the liveliness of the city as it is one of the most crowded place I’ve ever seen. TV advertisement every where, and you could surely find everything you need such as shopping malls, food from different culture and the most interesting thing - street
performance.

We also get to visit Harvard and MIT University in Boston, I think it is a very rare chance a student could visit such famous university. The exploration of the school gives me the motivation to study harder, grabbing the chance to get into a good university. Beside, Boston is the most peaceful city in America. The last trip was to visit Niagara Falls. Niagara Falls is the collective name for three waterfalls that straddle the international border between Canada and the United States; more specifically, between the province of Ontario and the state of NewYork. They form the southern end of the Niagara gorge. I could not forget the breathtaking view of the waterfall. Last but not least. I would like to thank the following for making my time in United States so memorable. With them, the trip was warm. With them, the trip was full of happiness and laughter. With them, I grew up. It was an idyllic experience.

Hello I’m Eddie; I’m one of the students that went to the States this summer. I can’t believe I’m so in love with the USA because I’ve seen so many beautiful and breathtaking places. The first stop was the airport; obviously we were so tired of taking 14 hours of plane ride. When we were riding the van to our hotel for the first time, we passed this river that you could see New York City from the other side. At the first sight, I knew that I loved this country so much! And the next stop was a Thai restaurant which made us so happy because everybody was getting sick of those airplane foods. Everybody enjoyed their food, and then we took a 45 minute-ride to our hotel. The second day it was literally the best day of my life. The first stop of the 2nd day was a school where we had to take a test and an interview and we got to meet our teacher who was funny and friendly. Now can you guess what our next stop was? It was NEW YORK CITY; everybody was filled with excitement and nervousness because it was our first time to see this city. The city that never sleeps, the second you step your foot in this city, you feel that it is so crowded. The city was so beautiful, so I’m suggesting you to go there at least once in your life. When it was time to go back, I was so shocked because everybody was carrying 5 bags on both sides. We went to so many places and states but I’m not going to tell you all details, but here’s a sneak peak; it’s awesome!!!!!

    Last Summer, I went to the USA and I got a lot of experiences such as meeting a lot of new friends and also learning a lot of new things.
I visited many places such as Boston, Washington DC, and Nigara Falls. While I was there, I learned how to live alone without my family members taking care of me. I also learned about that country and the history. Moreover, I knew a lot of places and my favorite place was the 5th avenue, the six flag, and the Statue of Liberty. In the future, I am planning to study in the USA.

    It has been a great memory in America.  The most thing that I never forget is that I went to Six Flags and shopping. We have been to Boston, New York, New Jersey, and Washington. We do a lot of shopping at Macy’s Target and Time square. However, Six Flags is the place that I really enjoyed because I was riding a roller caster and other rides.
The most beautiful thing is that I went to water fall and I have to stay in the car for 8 hours. At the water fall, it has a half American and half Canada Bridge that is called “Friendship Bridge”. I wish that I can stay longer.

    Last summer, I have a lot of experience in USA. I went there for two weeks. It was for summer school and field trip to New York, Washington D.C, Boston, and New Jersey. I stayed at the Hotel in New Jersey and the Hotel was surrounded by a forest. It looked fun at the swimming pool, but I did not get a chance to swim there. I went shopping on the fourth of July. There was a big sale in time square. Moreover, the most excited place for shopping was that the fifth avenue. It was so big that I was almost lost there with my friends. We all went to Macy and bought a lot of stuff because that was our last shopping there. We went to Six Flags, it was an amusement park that had a lot of extreme roller coaster and had much fun. It was my best memory ever.

    The summer before my 12th grade, my friends and I took a trip to a completely new world. Being from a small country, I had never been exposed to the elements of a large city such as NYC. My trip there was like discovering an entirely new life that I had only heard stories of previously.
    Exhilarating feeling overcame me as I realized that I would soon be in one of the most amazing cities of the USA. On the first day of the trip, we went to the 5th Avenue which is one of the most popular and busiest streets in NYC. The buildings there were an incredible sight: Each street was crammed with buildings that were built side by side with no room in between, and a number of skyscrapers were present throughout the city.
    The twin towers memorial was the most beautiful part of NYC. The quiet, sincere feeling brought us great peace. The water even had a calm way of falling down the sides of the square falls. The peaceful atmosphere of the museum reminded us of the tragedy that happened in the past where many people died because of building collapsing as a result of an attack.
