Having starred in mainstream Hollywood productions like The Curse of King Tuta��s Tomb, Bloodmonkey and When Harry Tries to Marry, Mumbai-based actress Freishia Bomenbehram, has also enjoyed success on stage and television. Now Bomenbehram is back on television as the host of NDTV Good Timesa�� latest travel series, Hangout Amreeka. The month-long series covers three distinct American cities a�� New York, Seattle and Chicago, with a fun new concept. In her words, a�?Pretty much everything fun to do, chill out and yet explore the culture of each city is focused on.a�? We bring you her take on the show, travel and being an extrovert.
Hangout Amreeka for you.
I had such a blast traveling to three amazing cities and exploring them in a way that anyone who wants to live young would. If even 50 per centA� of that energy gets translated onto screen, Hangout Amreeka should be a cool ride.
Highlights of the journey.
The beauty is that everything was very spontaneous (as hanging out should be).A� The most fun day was in Seattle a�� we were at a bar catching a big game and made friends with some folks there. They took us to a beer pumpkin festival at a massive brewery where we tasted mouth watering pumpkin beer and hung out with some really cool folks!
The places wea��ve explored dona��t show up on normal Google searches, these are places that anyone who wants to live young will enjoy visiting. Also in todaya��s world of instant connectivity, hash tags and selfies, wea��ve made sure that the places we go to get instantly uploaded on Twitter so that viewers can check them out. It was 20 days of meeting awesome people, witnessing a part of history in each city without going to a boring museum, and eating the most mind boggling food.
From the stage to television host. Your journey thus far.
In one word a�� fun! Ia��ve learned to say to the universe a�?thank you, more pleasea�? (one of my all time favourite movies by the way).
Your travel essentials.
Convertor plugs, a good smart phone to map my way and instantly upload my experiences, and the good sense to always talk to the locals for the best places to visit andA� hangout.
The show premieres this evening at 8 pm.
