My first trip to New York/U.S Part 1

It was the day of December 18, 2014 the day that I had been planning for 3 months since October, It was the day that I would travel to anywhere besides the Middle East for the first time.W hat better place to go than to visit my sister in New York. Three months ago when I first decided that I wanted to go somewhere for the winter break I asked my Oldest sister J if she would want to take me. Of course since J loves New York so much she said sure why not. I got so excited after a week later we booked our tickets, our hotel, our broadway shows ( which by the way I loved so much), and etc. I knew that this trip would be the trip of a life time and that I would never forget it.

After 3 months passed by it was December and the day before our flight on the 17th I got sick and caught a cold. So I know what you all must be thinking that oh no she can’t go on the trip well no. I actually got up went to the doctor got an injection, and medicine, headed back home and started packing my bags. Of course it was a terrible feeling having to be sick while packing my bag since I had an awful headache. But I managed to do so, with so much excitement in me I barely managed to sleep only got about 5 hours in but that was okay since I was planning on sleeping the entire plane ride.

The morning rolled around the corner and I actually woke up before my alarm in a couple minutes it was set for 5:15 am( I know so early right well i wake up like this for school anyways so it’s okay). Went and did the usual things I do to get ready before a flight you know shower, brush your teeth, fix your hair, etc. Once all of that was out of the way I quickly put on the most comfiest clothes that I had and went to take my bags down. I got my bags down double checked them twice to make sure if I was missing anything and left in the kitchen so that my Dad and I could load the car up together. My sister was making her way down the stairs with her bag so I just went in to the kitchen to grab something to drink,  and then go downstairs to the living room and say goodbye to my Mother.

J and I both said our Goodbyes to Mom, and headed out to the car where I helped my Dad load our bags into the car. It was a very nice and joyful 30 minute car ride to the Airport with my Father. We discussed what we would do once we got to New York. Once we got in the airport and checked in our bags and received our tickets, we went down to Starbucks with my Dad and Sister. I had a hot chocolate and my sister had some water, while Dad had a cappuccino. Time passed by quickly so quick that it was 30 minutes before our flight so we had to leave to go to the gate. J and I said our goodbyes to Father and then left to go to the gate, we got to the gate and had to wake half an hour until they would board us on the plane. So what we did was just sat down in the area where our gate is and we just used our electronic devices.

It was time to board the plane we got on the flight and sat down in our seats, buckled out seat belts and just waited till it was time to take off. Once we took off I got out my iPad and started watching my tv shows, throughout the flight I probably only slept like 6 to 7 hours. The flight was about 14 hours ( it was really long) I got bored after I woke up and felt like I wanted to get off the plane of how tired and bored I was. Finally the time came and it was time to land into the city, man was it beautiful the sun was starting to set at the time and it was so gorgeous. I instantly fell in love with New York once we landed it was gorgeous, once we landed it was about 8 degrees celsius pretty cold( thank god I had thermals on).

In the airport we had a really easy time getting in and leaving it took us about 10 minutes to leave the airport. Once we hailed a taxi and got in I was super exhausted so I fell asleep and of course dizzy because the taxi just made me feel very sick. My sister J woke me up during the middle of the ride and was like look around you look at the city and I opened my eyes took one glance and then closed them and dozed back to sleep( funny right I know :p). We got to our hotel and checked in went to our room which was really pretty sure it had old furniture but who cares. I immediately went to take a shower because I just felt like I had to so my sister J ordered us pizza and my other sister who lives in the city was coming over to our hotel to visit so I was super excited. Sorry guys but I am going to end the post here since I think I have written to much and don’t worry I will post the rest soon I won’t leave you guys hanging :p.

Love, Miss Talks xoxoxoxo
