Frozen Meets Fun: My First Snow Experience

Let it  go, let it go. Can’t hold it back anymooore…

You really can’t hold it back when mother nature drops a playground! I remember the first day I saw snow, I was running to Jannie next door and literally dragged her from her bed to the window so she could also see its stunning beauty. Winter wonderland, indeed!

And for someone who just experienced snow  for the first time, of course I had my first snowman, first snow angel and my first snow ball fight! Just as much as I like to write my name on the sand, I definitely had mine on the snow, too, both on the ground and on someone’s windshield! So. Much. Fun!

I also did not miss the chance to learn downhill skiing! I was not even bad myself. Go, please ask my friends how good I was! HAHA!

And if you’re scared to ski or snowboard, sledding in a superman pose is twice the fun!

Or you can just walk in the snow, enjoy the view…

I grew up in a tropical  country, yet the cold never bothered  me anyway.


I know it’s very random and overdue. I’m just pondering over my frozen memories in New Hampshire while hoping that the weather in India will turn back to cold.

I never imagined that it gets freezing cold in India. In fact, they get snow in the Northern part during the winter! Awesome! I’m so jealous!

I just wish we get to experience snow in Philippines, too! 😦

 

Day dreaming with love,

Bye Philippines! Hello America!

Hello! It is a super duper late post, I’m just trying to update my blog so that my readers have something to read and view in here. It was March 22, 2013 when we left Philippines. Awwwww. I felt sad. I have been waiting for this moment to come, if you have read my older post I was preparing for my international OJT. Now here I am, living in Georgia, United States of America, working at The King and Prince Beach Resort. Yes, a dream come true!Well, I just want to share to you my travel/flight photos from Philippines to USA.

Hafa Adai! My first entry to USA was at Guam. Sorry for the low quality of my photos. All photos that you’ll see in this post were taken from my Galaxy Pocket phone. Hihi.

Meet Ely, my co-intern. 🙂

That’s Kris on the right 🙂 Say hello, girls!

Aloha! Our second stop-over was at Honolulu, Hawaii which was almost 6 hours from Guam if I remember it right.

image

Next flight, Honolulu to Washington. Oh-my-gee! I hate our 10 hours of flight! We were so boring. I felt like I was sleeping the whole day but the when I woke up it was like I had only an hour of sleep. Do you feel me?

image

Touched down Washington, DC! It was so cold there! I loved it! Oh, that’s our plane waiting for our next flight to Jacksonville, Florida. Thanks, United Airlines.

Here are more of  my “Washington Flight” photos. Teehee.

After an hour or two, we arrived at Jacksonville Airport. We were in a hurry that time that we I haven’t had a chance to take photos from JAX, Florida. Regrets.

From Florida we took 2-hour drive via van/shuttle to Saint Simons Island, Georgia. Here’s what welcome us.

The “Suspension Bridge”. Beautiful! (Photo grabbed from @heyitskriszy IG)

Our house at Beach View Drive. Nice photography, Kris! You already!

Oh hey! That’s me on my working uniform.:) 

And that’s all for now. Thank you for reading, guys!

Coming soon on this blog: My travel photos at Saint Simons Island, GA, our “by the beach” photos and more!

iI’m giving you,guys, this tranquil view of the beach from King and Prince Hotel at St. Simons Island, GA. I know I owe you a lot of blog posts, I hope you’ll forgive me.

I was so busy working on my papers for my International OJT ( Oh thanks to God for the opportunity), which was not easy. Visa Interview was crucial, so we must be prepared. There are possibilities that U.S embassy consulate might deny your visa. Thank God (again) my visa was approved! 😉

Now, I am already here in America!!! I’m missing Philippnes 😦 but I’ll be fine. This is the essence of the program, to live independently.

Sorry for the random thoughts. I have to go to sleep now because tomorrow is another work day!

Goodnight, sweeties! More blogs, sooon!

with love,

Atria
