During the summer of 2012 I was in the USA on a Work and Travel program. Most of the time I was busy at work, but I was still able to travel a bit. I was in Wildwood, New Jersey. New Jersey is not the most beautiful place in the USA, but with friends and some free time one can have a great time there.
There are three amusement parks in Wildwood. Mostly foreigners worked there. A good thing is that many Bulgarians had a job at the Morey’s Piers parks, so I was able to try some of the attractions without paying, because I was there to save money. The attractions vary from ones for kids to ones for brave people. One of the scary attractions was ‘The Skyscraper.’ This is a bar, which is attached to a motor in the middle. At the two ends of the bars there are cabins. They are attached in a way that allows them to turn. The whole thing is around 50 meters tall and it rotates with up to 55 mph. Because of the freely moving cabins it turns you upside down in every possible way.
I also like going just for a walk in the nature. Adam is a friend of mine who I met there and he showed me many beautiful places in the nature. One of them was Delaware Bay. We went there at sunset. The view was amazing. The blue in the sky was turning orange and red and it was merging with the greenish color of the ocean. There was no one there except for us. And while watching this beautiful view, the waves from the ocean were crashing at the little beach there.
On our way back to Wildwood, we saw falcon nests and we stopped in order to take some photos. These birds are very beautiful, but after stopping and getting a bit closer they got annoyed. They even became hostile, because they were afraid for their nests. They started flying around as a sign of protection of their territory. That way they showed that they are prone to attacking us if we go any closer. It was a really nice sight.
It was almost the end of the summer and Adam told me about a trip with a boat that goes deep into the ocean to watch dolphins. I have seen dolphins many times, but this was the first time I saw dolphins in their natural environment. They were afraid to jump out of the water, but still they were swimming around the boat and I was able to make some photos and I had a great time.
Because of Adam, I was able to see some really nice places in Wildwood and to have a great time there. Thank you. 🙂
