I used to have a friend over the net then who hails from North Carolina. She settled in North Carolina after she married her fiancee. When I had the chance to go New York she was prodding me to go their place. She says if i don't like to stay in their place, I could stay in any of the Wilmington NC apartments available near their place. It could have been fun to visit her and get to meet her family but I had limited time and I could not stay longer. Maybe next time when I go near their state I can visit her. For now, I will focus on saving money for my next trip.
