Yes! Finally, I am back from my 2 weeks honeymoon and I just can’t wait to share with you the adventures I had in USA!
It was surprisingly fun in USA and quite frankly, I didn’t really expect it to be this way.
I always have a fear of traveling too far away as I hate jetlag.
The furthest flight I have taken, was to London, which was many years ago.
The 14 hours flight was horrible and I needed 2 days of sleep to over come the jetlag.
And since then, I have never taken a flight of more than 7 hours until my honeymoon.
But when my wife told me that she wanted to go to the US for our honeymoon, I almost ‘flipped out’.
But after much hesitation, I gave in to her but on one condition.
The condition is that we’ll have to take the “Business Class”… so that I can rest better to fight the jetlag (Since it’s a 20+ hours flight, I fear that it may be worst than going to London).
So we checked in on the 30th April.
And I slept almost through out the whole flight.
When I landed in New York, I felt fine (all thanks to the 10+ hours of sleep that I had).
We checked into the really cool psychedelic hotel in Times Square.
And we spent most of our time visiting the major attraction with a little bit of shopping.
This is my first shot of NYC.
One of the main attractions that I like is the Madam Tussauds.
We don’t have that in Singapore and it’s kind of fun taking photos with all the well know figures.
And of course not forgetting the highlight which is the Statue of Liberty.
After spending 4 nights in NYC, we took a 4 hours bus ride to Washington DC to catch up with my buddy Daegan Smith in one of his private workshop.
Picked up a couple of really cool ninja strategies to increase my sales. Will be implementing them over the next few weeks. Let’s see how it goes.
After the workshop, we hopped onto the double decker tour bus and took a day off to sight see.
We visited quite a number of monuments and we took alot of photos.
We went to the White house, Arlington National Cemetery, Jefferson Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, Lafayette Square, National World War II Memorial, The Pentagon, Vietnam Veterans Memorial and my favourite Lincoln Memorial (Why is he my favourite… maybe it’s because he is featured in some of my favourite movies like Night In The Museum and Transformers)
After 3 days in DC, we took a 7 hours flight to LAS VEGAS!
Now this is the fun part.
There are simply too many things to do in Vegas. So many casinos to see, so many places to shop and so many shows to catch.
I just hope that we have more time in Vegas.
We stayed in a hotel call “Treasure Island”. The hotel was pretty okay and it was close to all the main hotel attractions.
The first thing we did was to check out the Premium Outlets there.
We spent a bomb there and in just one day, our total damage was $3000.
We brought so many things that we have to buy a new luggage just to fit all the new purchases in.
Beside the shopping, we also catch 2 shows.
One is the Blue Man Group.
And the other one is the world famous David Copperfield.
I enjoyed David Copperfield performances alot as I didn’t expect him to be so active with the audiences.
He was getting everyone involved in the performances and you can see that all the audiences love it.
And by the way, here’s my favourite shop : Affliction
I love their clothes and we brought 16 items from them.
I just can’t shop enough and I literally had to tell myself to STOP!
Vegas is definitely a place that I will go back for it’s shopping and shows.
I am not really into gambling but I love the shows and performances in the casino.
I would want to be back soon.
After Vegas, we rented a car and took a 4 hours drive to Los Angelas, Santa Monica.
It was pretty exciting and scary as this is my first time driving a left hand drive car.
The drive was pretty smooth and easy to LA.
When we are in LA, the first time we did was to visited Hollywood, Rodeo Drive and Beverly Hills.
It was quite interesting to see how Hollywood is like.
The next day, we went to Universal Studio Hollywood and we had a lot of fun there.
Luckily their Universal Studio is different from our Singapore version.
I get to see a lot more stuffs that I can’t see in Singapore.
I visited 80% of the attractions and my favourite is the Universal Tour where they bring you around the studios and show you how movies are made.
It was excited and they even try to mimic the movies.
Overall… after visiting 4 states (New York, Washington, Las Vegas and Los Angelas), my overall favourite place is Los Angelas, Santa Monica.
It is the combination of the activities in New York and the calmness of Washington.
I totally love this place and our hotel is directly opposite the beach (which add in the cool factor).
Looks like I am going to head back to the US sooner than I expected.
We took an all Business class flight home and we slept throughout the flight.
When I finally arrived home and I login to my Paypal. I saw this amount of commissions waiting for me to withdraw.
Life is good!
