The first flight of my life was really amazing. I was nervous and excited at the same time, and as I kept wondering about my month-long visit, the plane took off. I looked out of the window and saw lights: lots of lights. And the next thing that came to my mind was “America, Here I Come.” It was a long flight, and I had to sit in the same seat for more than 10 hours. Man, that felt like jail.
Technically, it was an emergency hotfix for me when my second visit to the US was confirmed. Later a month’s stay was extended to three months. Landing in Boston was a different experience this time. Earlier I had a bad experience of jet lag; however, this time, I was more confident and active. I would like to thank the entire Deerwalk Lexington Team for making me feel at home and for their friendly hospitality. My thanks and remembrance to all.
August 30, 2019. The most awaited day of my life had finally arrived. This was the day when my flight was scheduled to take off from the Tribhuvan International Airport to the Boston Logan International Airport. With bags packed and ready to go, mind and body filled with excitement, I reached the airport three hours […]
For me, the official visit to the US was a “much-anticipated trip of my career.” Whenever I went through my colleagues’ US visit blogs in everestuncensored.org, I always wanted to experience how things were in the US. Putting down all the memories into words about that one month of my life was what I had […]
It was my second International flight and the first one to the States. I was really excited about this trip, which started on July 31, 2019, at 3 PM. It was raining steadily when I landed in Boston, but the rest of the days turned out to be the best ones. I had an amazing […]
It was raining the day I landed at Boston and my first thought was “Oh lord, it’s monsoon here as well”. How wrong I was. By a lucky chance, the days I spent in Boston were very pleasant, not hot and not cold as well, although the folks there said it should have been a bit hot. Well, I was not to complain about the change in weather. There’s not much to mention about the flight which was uneventful except for my unsuccessful attempt at keeping a few millimeters of personal space between this huge lady who was spilling all over my seat and myself without much success. By the way, do you know there’s an electric train running inside the Doha Airport terminal building from one end to another??? Talk about development!!! It’s such a huge structure but one does not get lost because it’s so well managed with full of information, whereas over here a gate sign was pointing to a toilet.
Traveling to the United States was my first international visit so I was eager for the experience. On June 29, 2019, I along with my colleagues Jeevan Timilsina and Harish Thagunna started our journey from Tribhuwan International Airport. We had a long transit of 17 hours, so we got plenty of time to rest in Doha, Qatar. We were picked up by the hotel representative at Hamad International Airport. Our stay was at the hotel Concorde International. The hotel was big and nice. We enjoyed swimming in the backyard of the hotel for an hour.
When I was packing bag for my second visit to the US, first thing that came to mind was the weather of Boston. The heavy snowfall and extreme cold Boston the last time I visited was all over my mind. Weather prediction for the Month of July was high of 28 degree C and low 19 which was a sigh of relief.
The news of my US visit got me exhilarated from day one. Then began all the procedures to acquire my visa and then the ticket, which took about 15 long days. The thrill of going to the Land of the free was increasing day by day. Thoughts were rushing through my mind as my thought plane needed no ticket, I was already in the land of liberty.
The day finally arrived, on the 1st of June 2019, I along with my colleagues Pratik Joshi and Sanjay Shrestha left TIA for Boston for a month. After 18hrs long flight, we reached Logan Int’l Airport via Doha at around 4 pm. We took a CAB to Ashay dai’s home which was about to be my home for the next one month.
