Photo blog: Washington DC
Almost a year ago I spent a couple of days visiting the city of Washington DC and to my surprise, fell in love with it. I’ll be back in the city to visit friends in a couple of months, so I dug out my photos and polished a few up for a tour down memory lane.
My friend and I did our own two-day walking tour through the green, tree-lined streets, littered with monuments, landmarks, statues and friendly, proud Americans. Take some good walking shoes as its the best way to see the sights.
It was wonderful and exciting for me to see first-hand so many iconic buildings and places that have been portrayed in countless movies. We even caught a glimpse of the Obama family on the back balcony of the White House, before security came to usher everyone away. It was such a thrill!
The creative and stunning memorials offered unique tributes to each of the various battles and wars, and each is worth seeking out and visiting for yourself.
Of course I couldn’t go to Washington without feasting my senses at the various museums and galleries along The National Mall. The two I-can’t-leave-without-seeing museums was the famous National Museum of Natural History and the National Air and Space Museum (both featured in the movie Night at the Museum)
All in all a fantastic couple of days and I can’t wait to visit again and see all the museums and landmarks I didn’t get a chance to get to last time!
