I used to be crazy about the TV show ‘Providence’ which was being shot in the city of Providence, RI itself. Watching the show everyday and the beautiful scenic views of Providence totally captivated my soul and I knew I had to go there someday. Last summer, before I joined university in Canada, me and my family were visiting some relatives in NJ and since we didn’t have much to do there, I asked if we could visit Providence, my uncle agreed to drive us there from Oldbridge, NJ. It was around 6 hours by road. When we got to Providence, I was beyond 7th heaven. I was finally visiting the place I had always dreamed I would visit. It was one of the best days of my life, truly, there can be nothing bigger in one’s life than seeing one’s dream come true. I always used to read about such things, but it has actually happened to me! Providence is a lovely city, but unfortunately, we reached there a little before sunset so I couldn’t spend too much time there. I just went around the Brown Uni campus which was quite neat. When we went to the waterfront for the Gondola ride, we were told that we had to make reservations for it!! Damn!! I was so disappointed! I took quite a few pictures though.
I really want to go back there again someday, preferably spend a few days there so I can experience the first city of my dreams to its fullest. :))))over 6 years ago
