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.
Its so beautiful at the world war II memorial as the suns rays come through.
Everything was so still.
The other good thing is that its not swamped with school trips and kids yet!
Matthew and the Monument
This guy was a bit of a beast.
Saw the white house.
Then hit the museums.
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.
Checked out the natural history museum.
The return module from the Apollo 11 mission, really cool to have seen this in person.
Someone did a good job with this window and their sticky notes haha!
The Jefferson memorial was neat.
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!
Thats Matt on the bike. ET eat your heart out.
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.
