Washington DC

So we’ve made it to what is the final main stop of my east coast roadtrip. Its been a really eye opening experience and I feel like I’ve gotten to see a lot of American culture. DC was probably my most educational visit, where we got to see all of the monuments, museums and political buildings. Here are my faves from the day!

I recommend getting up super early to see the sunrise and the monument.

I adored this butterfly garden, these guys were flying and landing all over the place and it was so fun to take photos of them.

We grabbed some of the city bikes and peddled about through DC that evening, its $7 for 24h and so long as you keep the trips under 30 mins, it says at $7. Super fun compared to walking as theres a lot of ground to cover!

Thanks DC! We’re on the way homeward next. I’ll likely make one more post with all the in-between bits of travelling that didn’t deserve a full post on their own.
