I have lived in the UK for my entire life. I am now 40 years old and the only international visit I have ever had was to the United States of America. Although I have read a lot about the American lifestyle and the condition of politics there, but not having seen it personally, I didn’t know what to expect during my first visit.
Below is my account of experiences I gained from that one single trip that I made to the US a few months back. The trip started off with me having to visit Baltimore on a business conference. It was just a two day conference but what since I had flown to US for the very first time, I thought I should stay and tour the city and see a little more of Baltimore.
I won’t lie and tell you straight that I had a great time during my stay. It happened to be my first visit outside the UK and boy I was glad I came. Since I happen to be a quite person, I started off my trip by first visiting the Baltimore Museum of Art. I loved the sculpture garden there. It was peaceful and quiet and very green. What more can I nature lover like me ask. Yes, I have seen my fair share of historical museums in my own country as well but this was bliss. Loved it.
Being in Baltimore how could I miss the Holocaust Memorial, so my next trip took me to the memorial to see what it had to offer. The atmosphere was somber and it definitely moved my heart. I felt bad but had a good experience visiting the memorial and checking out what it had to offer.
On my third day I decided to book myself a guided tour of Baltimore so that I could experience the city in more detail. I was glad I was able to find a great company because they gave me a very comprehensive three day tour covering a lot of places I would have never had the chance to see on my own.
Although a UK resident, I have always loved baseball and I was glad our first tour stop was the Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Do you know it’s the classic home of the famous Baltimore baseball. I had a great time there.
The next stop was the USS Constellation, a historic military ship that offers audio tours as well. Then we went to the Jewish Museum of Maryland that exhibits interactive synagogue tours. Our tour guide also took us to Pratt Street Power Plant, the best spot I say. It is the most happening place in the entire Baltimore for dining, music and of course nightlife. A single male of 40, I had absolutely the best time at the clubs.
All in all, even though it was my first trip and even though I just got to visit Baltimore only, I had the best time in my life.
