We almost died in a bus?! | Storytime | BOSTON, NYC, SALEM VLOG


Hey guys! It’s Debbie and welcome back to my channel! When I last spoke to you guys I was on a little bit of an “itty bitty” American roadtrip with my best friend and her husband. We kind of explored the Dallas/Fort Worth Metropolitan area It was really cool, it was really neat–and if you guys didn’t see that vlog I will link it somewhere at the end of this video but after that we flew to the east coast to continue our roadtrip and I’m going to do this video in a little bit of a “storytime/vlogging” style so it’s going to be a little bit different Right after we left Dallas, we flew to Boston. and we have always wanted to go to Boston just because my friend and I have always had this fascination with the “Salem Witchcraft trials” and not that we like practice witchcraft or anything like that but we were really interested in it just because it was around Halloween time and it was going to be spooky, and we just really liked the historical aspect of it. and so we flew to Boston and I really… …actually liked that city. WE’RE IN BOSTON! We’re walking around Pearl Street in Boston, and Wendy’s being “Snow White” over here After having spent like two or three days in Boston We decided to take a Greyhound bus *DOWN to New York and I’ve taken a Greyhound bus before leaving Nebraska to Los Angeles so this wasn’t new to me or anything like that but while we were taking this Boston Greyhound The bus left at like 1am, and it was suppose to arrive to New York City at about 4:30-5am–someplace around there. At about like 2 or 3am, I was like half asleep–trying to get some rest. and all of the sudden the bus makes this sound, where it’s just like “JUH, JUH, JUH, CHUH, CHUH” It didn’t cross my mind that it was anything serious I was just there like “Ok, there must be something on the road” but people in the back of the bus started screaming like: “WAKE HIM UP! WAKE HIM UP!” and I think they were talking about the driver because I was still half asleep and I like shot up, because I think my brain processed everything I was like “The drivers falling asleep, Thedriversfallingasleep!” yunno, I didn’t know if that was for sure what was happening but because people in the back were screaming it , I started screaming that too because I didn’t know what else to do I’m just like “WAKE UP, WAKE UP!” It’s so crazy because then a guy from the back of the bus runs up to the front of the bus tries to take the wheel from the driver because we all thought that he was falling asleep Turns out, he wasn’t falling asleep at all. He was still wide awake. He stopped the Greyhound at the side of the road. and he stood up he looked at all of us and you can imagine like all us, just staring at this bus driver we just all looked at him like–yunno, kind of freaked out still and then somebody in the back–again–was like “We thought you were falling asleep…” “yeah, we thought you were falling asleep.” and the bus driver–he just kind of looked at all of us he found it like humorous, but also he was taken aback by everything and he was like this cute African guy, so he had like this really cute accent He was like “I just had to move out of the way.” “You scared me. I’m not going to fall asleep, you guys.” and then turned back as if nothing happened, sat back down and continued driving. It was so scary, but so hilarious at the same time. Half of my brain was like, “Ok, were’ going to die. This is it.” but the other half of my brain was like, “This hasn’t flipped over yet…” “…why haven’t we died yet? I feel that would have happened already?” but the thing that impressed me was that in that moment, all I’m thinking that I could do is just scream “Wake up!” but that guy in the back that ran up and tried to grab the wheel and like, steer the bus back on the road Like THAT, really impressed me because your brain must be on like–I don’t know–on like “SUPER POWER MODE” or something for you to be like “You know what–This is happening. I need to run up there. I need to grab the wheel. I need to SAVE US.” That’s such impressive, courageous thinking and QUICK action to do so even though we were all safe the whole time Yunno, finally we got to New York and guys… I fell in love with New York. Duuude, we’re in New York We were only there to spend the day–but that whole day it rained up until like midnight. I was still so enamored with that city. Even though it was, like, raining even though I was, like, pms-ing Even though we didn’t have a place to check our luggage in until like 3pm It was amazing. and I definitely want to go back to New York someday because I didn’t feel like I got to see as much as I wanted to Although we saw a lot that day–there was so much more that I still want to see. So many neighborhoods that I still want to explore Yeah–then we came back to Boston and then finally, on Halloween day we went to explore Salem. and Salem had it’s own personality of it’s own. It has it’s background with the Salem witchcraft trials and there was like museums and dungeons and really nice colonial houses that had been preserved for years It was really interesting being there as well just because it was a little bit controversial and Halloween is kind of a big day for like Wiccans I’m sure other religions as well I dont’ know that much about it, but I know we went to a little museum tour and they did tell us “You know, for us it’s Halloween. But for the Wiccans, it’s like New Years.” so they do some kind of ritual on Halloween So we learned a lot while we were there–definitely very spooky, very interesting um..we got to dance a lot, there was like people dancing and they played music *in the streets and then from there we headed back to Boston, and then back to Texas and then from Texas we drove back home to Nebraska This roadtrip was really eye-opening Especially for me, who’s unemployed right now and trying to figure out what to do It definitely provided a lot of inspiration It made me think about what I want in a place if I ever move to someplace new but anyways, if you enjoyed this video make sure to give it a LIKE Dont’ forget to SUBSCRIBE down below and I will talk to you guys in the next video–Byeeee
