Family Bonding at New Jersey

Hey guys!! As you recall, we had a looong stay in Orlando, with theme park hopping and all that stuff. After that, which was Thursday, we took a flight to New Jersey to meet with some of my relatives from my dad’s side. We stayed at my aunt and uncle’s house for one night and the next day, they brought us around New York City. At dinner time, we met up with one of my cousins for dinner.

For the next few days, we toured NYC on our own (future posts and videos would be coming soon!), and on Monday, my aunt and uncle picked us up and took us to see Brooklyn. After seeing some of the Brooklyn sites, they brought us to Jersey City to have late lunch and then they took us to the outlet malls in New Jersey for some shopping. Afterwards, we went back to their house and spent the night.

The next day, which was our last day in the States, we didn’t do anything much. We did things like we lived there: we went grocery shopping, bought different items, and drove around the neighborhood. It was actually relaxing, and it was nice to feel what it was like to live in Jersey like a local for a day. Afterwards,we went back to the house and my other cousin visited with his fiance. We all had early dinner, and they helped us finish packing the rest of our stuff. We said our goodbyes, and my aunt and uncle brought us to the airport. I wouldn’t write what I felt at that moment yet. Stay tuned for my future posts!!

  5. It’s always nice when you can relax with your family at the end of a trip. I like doing “local things” because when I travel I tend to search for the local culture and try to find an opportunity to get to see and experience how the local live.

  6. When we travel, we always try very hard to look like locals lol! But I think the lost expression on our faces give us away. Looks like you had an awesome time!

  8. I have never been into States but most of my father’s relatives were based there… I don’t know but I really admire the kind of lifestyle they have in the US…I hope I can visit this place someday
