Hello everyone! Now that the Adventures With Victor series has come to a close, before Victor left I wanted to ask him a few questions about his impressions of his first visit to the United States. Here’s my interview with Victor – Impressions of the US. Enjoy!
1. Let’s start by giving the readers a bit of an idea of what Prince Edward Island, where you live, is like. Describe in a few sentences of how life is like where you live.
It’s very rural, first off. There isn’t much entertainment and a lot of farms. We only have a small town and the entire population of the island is about 100,000 or so and is roughly the size of Delaware.
2. Where in the US did you visit?
I visited NYC and saw all the skyscrapers there, it was wonderful. I primarily stayed in NJ. We went to PA for Dorney Park.
3. Describe the initial feelings you felt or thoughts that ran through your head as soon as you arrived in the U.S.
Oh boy there’s a lot of people here. That was my first thought. It is REALLY hot, much hotter than Canada. To be fair I arrived during the heatwave but still it’s much hotter than where I live.
4. Describe your favorite places or favorite activities during your trip. What was your highlight?
The zoos were nice. I enjoyed eating at various restaurants.Halulu was really nice and I liked the Filipino place we ate at, as well as the Chinese buffet. I think I enjoyed the zoos the most, probably the Bronx Zoo because of how large it was and the animals were given more space.
5. Did you learn or experience anything new while visiting? If so, what is it / are they?
I don’t think I learned anything completely new, I only learned how much more people live here and the weather.
6. Was there anything you disliked about your trip?
It was just really hot so that was the downside. I disliked the length of the road trips, because in PEI, in 20 minutes you can get to your destination (cause we’re a small island). It takes like 30-40 minutes minimum to get anywhere here.
7. Can you offer any tips to anyone who wants to plan a trip around the tri-state area?
No to 2 star hotels, they’re all terrible. Be prepared to sweat a lot in the summer and take several showers in a day.
Did we say that we hated the 2-star hotels yet? Yeah… thought so.
I had lots of fun interviewing him and hopefully you enjoyed reading it too! Hopefully you got to learn a bit of information of what life is a bit like around here and what there is to do and places to see. If you’re ever in the area, hit me up!
Thanks again for reading. Until next time ♡
