Three months, my time in the United States is up. During the stay, the major event was the roadtrip USA in New England creating around friend’s wedding. Stephen and I (Visit his website! – BohemianTraveler.com ) went to the roadtrip together, and it lasted 56 days and 3804 miles. Started from Fredericksburg, VA and finished at where we started. The loop has completed.
Over all, it was a successful trip with lots of varieties. Press trips as kick ass bloggers, visiting old friends, making new friends, tweet ups, fixing website problems, hiking, camping, beer tasting, sharing wines, and again, friends and family.
This trip was the first for me as a full time blogger, or a career breaker. With different perfectives, I saw a lot of possibilities about this industry and I got a change to have rich experiences around the country. Not only those 56 days of the road trip, but also the whole three months, I’ve learned a lot and it helped me grow, I believe. I’m going to miss my time in the US but I will have more and also another great experiences in the future.
I sincerely thank our awesome hosts who made this trip even better.
Old friends, new friends, family members, kids, new babies (and your adorable pets) and tweet ups. It was nice to meet you all and thank you for inviting me and for the good times we had. We couldn’t have done this trip without you. Hope to see you soon in somewhere in the wild world.
And last but not least, a deep appreciation to my travel companion Stephen Bugno for creating this wicked trip together and brain storming about some great products (videos, photos…). Thanks for everything. It sounds so cliche, but I really do mean it – everything! It would not be this must fun and without you. I remember we had some good moments with Bug’s life, Do-Re-Mi song and John Wayne’s teeth.
Thank you everyone!
And Thank you America!
