My first trip out of Asia! USA here I come!

I am fortunate that I've had the chance to travel but so far just within Asia. I remember the first time I went out of the country, I was 16, it was my high school graduation gift for myself, it was a trip to Hong Kong with my sisters!  We went on a cold February and it was both my first airplane ride and cold weather!

It was terrible!  I puked during the flight because I got so dizzy and I got sick in Hong Kong because it was so cold! haha  My sisters reminded me that I even swore to never ride the plane again!

That was 13 years ago and I am so glad that I did not decide to be stupid and not travel ever!  Traveling and Couchsurfing has changed me in so many ways; I have made true friends and discovered the best way traveling should be done.

So why am I writing again after I have done several other travels that I did not even bother writing about?  Well, because this travel is gonna be another first, it's going to be my first trip out of Asia!  On September 2013, I will be going to US of America for 2 straight months!

I've had my 10-year US visa since 2008 and after handful of failed attempts of going; and my sister (who got the visa the same time I did) has been to the US 3 times, ♫♪...its my turn....♪♫

I bought my ticket from Rajah Travels at the 20th Philippine Travel Tour Expo last February and got a great deal on an open-jaw ticket from Hawaiian Airlines; My sister, the Wanderlass, told me that if I don't buy the ticket now, then my trip will never push through; and so I did.

Here I am, giddy, waiting until September comes and I will be spending Autumn in New York!  I will be visiting friends/relatives and just EXPERIENCE America!

I will be going from East to West hitting the following states, depending on the result of your comments and suggestions, my plans will and can be changed:

New York
New Jersey
Rhode Island
Washington DC

and then down to


and then up to the West


and then to


and then probably 30 pounds later, home.

I've made a MUST DO/EAT list in America based on different travel shows I've seen, TV series I've followed, or Archie comics I've read but would like to come up with more things to put on my checklist!
