A few weeks ago, during my Spring Break, my friends and I made a trip to Washington D.C. We drove there, which was an adventure in itself, but I wouldn’t have done it any other way. The amount of things that we got to see was incredible, and it really made me feel full of pride for this beautiful, strong country. I’m so happy that I live where I do and have all of the freedoms that I do.
I Instagrammed the crap out of this trip, because I was so in love with the architecture, so make sure you’re following me & don’t miss it all next time!
This kind of trip is something I’d completely recommend everyone to do at some point during their lifetime. There’s so much history in this place and it’s incredible to see it all.
On day one, we arrived in the middle of the day (after driving 9 hours, all night, to get there) and we were exhausted. We had to wait a few hours until our hotel room was ready, so we walked around and killed some time…and saw some awesome things which I forget the names of! After we checked in, we passed out for basically the rest of the night…oops. Lame.
The next day was when we saw a lot of the monuments and memorials around the city. We took a tour bus that was hop on/hop off and I highly recommend it. It was also beautiful weather, considering it was only the first week in March.
And here’s a few pictures of my cute roomies:
On the second full day, we saw Arlington and a few of the museums, which I wasn’t inspired to take pictures of! I was so sick of carrying my camera around after it gave me a weird sunburn the day before, so I took a day off and just enjoyed everything we saw.
Overall, the food was amazing and I definitely recommend stopping somewhere on U-Street for dinner one night. We just found our way into a random restaurant and weren’t disappointed. I can also highly recommend We, The Pizza. If I were to go back, I think I would definitely be trying out the food trucks, as there’s so many of them around the entire city.
On the way home, the following day, I snapped this picture while we were in the mountains in Pennsylvania. Yes, it’s edited, but it was so beautiful even without a filter. The East side of the US took my breath away, and I can’t wait to go back and explore more of it.
