Milan Lohani’s US Visit

Traveling always stimulates my mind. When it comes to going to a new place, it invokes a sense of curiosity and sends thrill as well as rejoice in my head. For me, Boston was a new place. It was a purposeful visit, which eventually turned out to be one of the most memorable trips of my life. The 30-day long journey from Kathmandu to Boston was a complete package through thicks and thins of life, almost akin to a well-structured travelogue.

Binay Dahal’s US Visit

The Arrival: After a long sleepless flight, I arrived at Logan International Airport. The journey to the US was quite tough, but the moment I landed, I felt refreshed. The place was cold with winter fast approaching, but it was pretty good at the same time. The immigration process should have been short and easy, […]

Achyut Kumar Bhattarai’s US Visit

It was late in the evening when we three brothers (Sudan Dai, Binay Dai, and I) arrived at TIA for our trip to Boston on September 30. My mind was rife with worries but was merry at the same time. It was a very different feeling than what I had felt for the first time. After the 5 hours flight to Doha, 7 hours of transit at Hamad International Airport, we flew to Boston early in the morning. After flying for more than 11 hours, we reached Boston Logan International Airport. Everything seemed amazing when we were out of the

Sudhir Maharjan’s US Visit

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.

Prakash Bhatt’s US Visit

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.

Suraj Ghimire’s US Visit

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 […]

Shekhar Basnet’s US Visit

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.

Bimal Pant’s US Visit

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.
