The US Capital

OMG I cannot believe my dreams came true last night and personally met Rih! haha Not! 

It's the second day of our trip and we spared no time touring the city like real tourists. Started off by hopping on the Hop-On Hop-Off bus tours and riding it around town, exploring the most popular and enticing places one can go to in Washington DC.  It was exhilarating finding myself in Arlington Memorial Cemetery once again. It really just brought back great childhood memories; I remember the first time I visited Washington, almost 16 years ago. 

Although they have since repaired, made improvements, and added some great addition to the monuments, memorials and attractions, I was fortunate enough to be able to visit DC again for a second time. What made this even more special was the fact that I had the chance to share these precious moments with my niece, Kianna.

In addition to walking for hours on in, hopping on the bus and exploring various sites; we also  visited the famous Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, took a scenic cruise on the river and participated in a very gratifying and informational night tour. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgable with the ability to deliver great information in a very entertaining way. I particularly enjoyed the memorial dedicated to Franklin D. Roosevelt, where they had four instalments, depicting the highlights of each time he was in office for the US presidency.

Exploring Old Town Alexandria

Road trips could be so much fun. Today, our estimated eight hour road trip turned in an eleven car ride, that felt like forever. Being welcomed with unexpected traffic and having to make several stops, I could not help but feel restless in the car. I drove for almost seven hours and required multiple cups of iced coffee,  a hefty playlist I can sing and dance to.
