BOSTON: my LAST DAY IN USA with Harvard & MIT | CouchSurfing Tips

I’m glad that I’m ending my US trip with this tour It is my last day and I’ll be returining to India tomorrow amidst all these people and all of them are tourists the best thing is right now I’m in the top most university of the world I am in The Harvard University It is 2 minutes to be 11 and I have reached Harvard If you would like to visit Harvard University You can take the walking tour It is a great means to explore Harvard University I’ve to show them the GoBoston Card that I bought They’d scan the voucher Checking with the Attendant at the counter The tour would cost you $12 Tour guide welcoming the tourists for the tour Founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg used to live here on this very campus He was a student of Harvard University I feel this is the most interesting tour so far I’ve been on Our guide, Noah is a student of this campus He’s a medical student and has been here for the
last 5 years He’s been guiding us really well and is very informative Let me tell you some interesting facts about this place Students from near about 80 different countries study here It is the oldest institute for higher education in USA For a long time female students were not allowed to study here in this institute Gradually they were permitted to study here Boston City took its inception during the 1600s Within 2 years from then, this university started functioning The British academicians used to sail all the way in the wooden ships for 3 months to teach here Then they would teach here for the next 6 months then they would travel back for the next 3 months that really speaks for their dedication towards education that they come all the way to teach As you know the history of USA The USA is one such nation that has immigrants from all over the world who have settled here It began with Europeans who migrated here to teach Well let me tell you on whose name is the Harvard University instituted on Actually Harvard University is named after a student The student’s name was John Harvard Two years after the inception of the university,
Harvard, a student then, passed away donating all his property and belongings to the university as per the will As a result of that this university is named after him as Harvard University named after John Harvard As you can see folks are clicking pictures with the statue there A statue that is definitely not a statue of John Harvard It’s very interesting that no one knows
whose statue is this It’s 2nd June today, on 24th of May there was a ceremony held here that’s called Graduation here
while it’s called Convocation in our country The day when you are awarded your degree In Hindi it’s called Deekshaanth Samaaroh Noah says, “36,000 chairs were laid here for the graduation ceremony” This is the library and it has a story of it’s own The one who has funded this library laid down a standing rule that this library will the stay the same as it is and cannot be extended beyond its periphery and height So they have figured out way to work around this rule The basement has 3 different levels below the surface There are 3 floors below this huge library building It spans from here to all the way there After completing the walking tour of Harvard University I have reached the Cambridge area of Boston right now Behind me is the MIT Museum which opens
from 10am to 5pm Let’s see how much would be the ticket here It’s $10 for adults and $5 for children Wow! It’s making a sound there So I’ll leave now and if we have time there are a lot of great things worth watching “Hey, what’s this boy?” This is a camera and I make videos for Youtube Please.. Please Come…. It’s raining outside Where do you folks come from? “We’ve come from Mumbai” Are you guys on tour to this place? “No our son lives in Seattle” I’m from Delhi; I’m on a trip this place to travel around It’s been a month here in US, so when I met this
elderly couple from Mumbai So as they were leaving I bade them a bye like this I wouldn’t have done it that way had I been elsewhere That too with elders, it would have been different Looks like, America is having it’s spell on me The time has arrived, that I have to take leave from here It’s 5.40 in the evening, the trip is over and now I’m leaving now from this gentleman Richard’s place I am leaving now I’ll take a bus, then redline subway, then the Silverline1 and then Logan International Airport, Boston My flight is at 9.30pm And then ta-ta buh-bye USA “I like the sound of your voice; I like your dialect” Richard listing people.. This gentleman has hosted people from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka and several other places Richard sharing his experience of hitch hiking Couchsurfing is generally free and there is no monetary transaction allowed and accepted here But it definitely makes them feel good when you take something to eat, drink or some gifts as pleasantries So even I carry something in my own way of my own choice for my host but when it comes to gifts, if you’re backpacking it’ll be a hassle to carry big gifts So pick something which is lighter and appealing and unique You can look upon the internet on the list things that you can gift a host You are a guest, it’s always better to be humble and helpful to your host and it determines their hospitality So do not hesitate to help and to be generous while picking gifts for them I do it my own ways I am sure you all do it your ways So if you have any new ideas of gifting your hosts of couch surfing, please do share and if I like them I’ll definitely consider the ideas and try them and suggest other too Attendant making an announcement Seems like there is a change “1, 2 and 3 upstairs” This is amazing, You have us run around with all the stuff It was 4th of May around 9.30pm I got down here from one of these buses As I got down, I was astonished by these magnificent buildings standing tall This place is called South Station
I am feeling really good With the sky scrapers and magnificent buildings, I’m feeling the US That was the day when I landed in USA and today I’m leaving back

  1. It was great USA trip. It requires great courage and enthusiasm to roam around that too with hitchhiking and random places. Being in USA for many years now, I know how hard it’s for oneself to travel like this. I appreciate your determination and strong desire. You showed lot of people how to travel on a budget. That’s how you know people and culture of individual/community/country. People keep on giving excuses and reasons for not fulfilling their dreams but you are the one who have nailed it. Cheers to you. Keep it up Varun. Peace!!

  2. वरुण सर आप का टूर बहुत अच्छा रहा है लेकिन आप को बहुत परेसानी आयी
    आप को बहुत बहुत धन्यवाद जो हिंदी भाषा मे दुनिया को घमकर हम को वहाँ रहन सहन के वारे बता रहे हो

  3. WOW… i'm getting nostalgic about Boston. I was there last year during the falls! 😀 i wish to be there again!! 🙂

  4. Over the weekend I am constantly watching all your videos. What an amazing accomplishment. Particularly video quality is very high considering handheld. I know you use some stabilizer you mentioned in some video, even then it is fascinating. Well, quite a bit people including you mentioned USA trip was not so good. I am here in USA for last 3.5years. Before that, I have my fair share of travel to other parts of the world. I have seen different part of USA. I can assure you with almost certantity, what you have accomplished in the USA is next impimpossobole . This is not a welcoming country at all. Secondly it has very fixed set of travel mode. Fly to a place, rent a car, stay in hotel or rent a RV stay in RV park. Poeple are individualistic , trust is almost next to zero. Considering world richest country public facility is next to nothing. Peopl are mostly fine with that.Because it goes very well with their own belief systems. Hich hiking couch surfing is danegerioos evry where. But here is in USA risk is very high. Surpsinly you could be in trouble with law enforment. Also visiting USA incomplete without seeing the National Parks. Yes, they are expesnive but those are the teresure of usa. Last but not the lest. If you are ever visiting Bay area (West coast) let me know . I can host you.
