I've traveled a lot this year. So far in 2017 I have been to 5 different countries, and 13 states. Every where I've went, I've enjoyed. For spring break I had the opportunity to go to New York City for the first time, and explored Manhattan. I've never been anywhere like New York City because there is no such place. There were people everywhere, each one had their own life, and were doing their own thing. The buildings were huge, and in Time Square the signs lit up the night.
This summer I went on vacation to Europe, starting in Italy, and working my way over to Spain. That trip was eye opening, Europe is very different from the United States, but I loved every minute of it. A few weeks after getting back, I went to the beach in southeastern North Carolina. It's hard to beat the beach. Of all the things I've seen, and the beautiful places I've went, I still see the East Coast of the United States as the most beautiful region on earth.
Back in August as most of you know, a solar eclipse swept across the entire country. There was a rush to get solar eclipse glasses, many of which were either fake or sold out. I however got my hands on a pair of said glasses and was astonished by the eclipse. I was in the 90% zone of the eclipse. It was approximately 2:30 in the afternoon when the eclipse was at its peak. Surprisingly with 90% of the sun blocked out, it was still very bright outside. However the light was dim in a way I cannot begin to describe, and pictures cannot really capture.
