In those 5 years, we traveled to Virginia and Texas numerous times throughout the year for our weekend meetings not to mention yearly trips to places like California, Guam and Hawaii.

Jay Gatsby shows us this when he “bought that house so that Daisy would just be across the bay (85).” Once Gatsby was wealthy enough, he bought an enormous house across Daisy Buchanan’s house, just to be close to her and to take good care of her.

After an amazing summer of travelling and binging on Netflix, the moment of dread finally
I then started imagining myself in an airplane obviously me and my sister were gonna be traveling in an airplane. Two days before the day to leave my sister and me started packing everything we were gonna take and we took 2 suitcases and we each had a backpack to take with us on the airplane.

Luckily, I had met a girl from Hannibal who was also attending the congress meeting and it seemed like all my nerves and worries disappeared and I was ecstatic to get on that plane and get to Boston.
