Once again it has been a while since I last posted here.  Since my
last post, I have been lucky enough to travel to the United States.

In mid-September, my eldest daughter visited to say that she had been
selected to travel to the USA to attend a conference in St. Louis,
Missouri.  She had arranged to leave Australia 5 days early so she
could visit New York with a friend.  She had booked accommodation and
had just found out her friend had pulled out.  I made a comment that
I've always wanted to go to New York, and my daughter said why don't I
come?  I said don't be silly and left it at that.

After my daughter left, my wife said why don't you go with her?  I
replied that I'm not sure it would fit in with my leave dates - so I
checked.  The day my daughter was scheduled to leave was just before my
leave started.  I was able to make some minor adjustments to my leave
dates and I was able to go with her.

We left Australia on 19 October 2018 and flew via LA to New York.
It's a very long way.  We spent 4 days together in New York before my
daughter left to attend her conference.  I stayed a couple more days
in New York before taking the train to Boston.  I had 4 days there
before renting a car and driving to Washington DC via Poughkeepsie NY and
Lancaster PA over 3 days.  Washington took up the next 4 days then I
travelled back to New York on the train for another 3 days. 

I kept a blog at https://bradmac.id.au/blog for full details.

I really enjoyed my trip to USA.  I have not been to the east coast
before and I found the people to be friendly, polite, helpful and
interested to hear about Australia.  

I will be back some time.
