Tanav Shethia our grade 4 student from Ekya School JP Nagar had been to the USA for a vacation this summer. With whole lot sightseeing during the tour, he has a story to say. Read in this blog Tanav’s experience in the USA.
Zoom, I fly to America with my parents. It was a nice journey to the city of Buffalo in New York, also known as the Empire state. Buffalo is home to the great Niagara Falls. We stayed at the hotel, Sheraton Niagara Falls where we met our group and guide. It was a group of friendly and fun people. The same night after dinner we went to see Niagara Falls and it was very beautiful. Following day we went for the cave of the winds, it is the place where the Niagara Falls hit the ground and seeing the Niagara Falls from the bottom was great. After lunch, we went to a shopping mall and then we went back to the hotel.
The next day we left for Washington DC (District of Columbia). It is the capital of the United States of America (USA). It is a union territory between the states of Virginia and Maryland. It is home to many monuments, historic buildings, government offices, and the famous White House. As we reached there we went to our hotel and relaxed. The next day on our city tour we saw the Abraham Lincoln Memorial, Korean War Memorial, Whitehouse, Capitol Hill, natural history museum, and air and space museum.
Our next stop was in New York City. On our way, we went to Hershey’s chocolate world where we saw how they make Hershey’s chocolate and we also bought some chocolate. In New York, we went for our city tour and visited the New York stock exchange, The National September 11 Memorial and Museum and the Big Bull. The next day we took a ferry to the Liberty Island where the Statue of Liberty stood. The statue of liberty was amazing and magnificent. The Statue of Liberty is a universal symbol of freedom gifted to the United States from France. I also learned that the statue is an Emblem of friendship between people of France and the United States. Then after lunch, we went to see the one world observatory from the 102nd, 101st and 100th floor.
We then went to Orlando the home to the Walt Disney World. The Walt Disney World consists of 5 theme parks they are the Epcot Centre (Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow), Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom blizzard beach, Hollywood studio. Orlando also consists of the Kennedy Space Centre that is the visitor Complex of NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration). We rested for a day and on the second day, we went to Epcot Centre. In the Epcot Centre, I went for rides like Spaceship Earth, Soarin, Mission Space, test track. The next day we went to Kennedy Space Centre where we saw a movie on NASA, went for a bus tour of NASA and went for spaceship stimulator ride. Last day of our trip we went to the Magic Kingdom where I went for rides like Winnie-the-Pooh, Magic Carpet of Aladdin, Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean, etc. and watched shows like enchanted Tiki room and Monsters Inc on the laugh floor.
We took our flight from Orlando to Bangalore. I enjoyed my American holiday.
