“The world is a book and those who don’t travel read only one page.” – St. Augustine
Hey, y’all! As I mentioned in my last post, “Tying the Knott: A Baltimore Wedding,” I recently got to travel to Washington, DC! I went to Baltimore for a friend’s wedding and on the last day in town, we (my friend Leah and I) had some spare time so we made the hour-long trip to DC so that we could explore!
We didn’t actually go inside many places, but we certainly had a great sight-seeing experience!
We walked probably a total of 6 miles or more and saw so many historical buildings and monuments! We also took breaks and had lunch at Noodles and Company and coffee at Paul’s French Family Bakery and Pattisserie. Throughout our walk we saw the Lincoln Memorial, the White House, the Capitol building (which is under construction) and much more! Then, on our way back to the car, we took a stroll through the George Washington University area where we saw some students taking part in Sunday Funday! They invited us to join, but unfortunately we had to head back to catch our flight!
It was all a fun experience though!
I’m so glad I got to venture out to Washington, D.C. for the day when we were in the area! I would definitely love to go back and experience it in depth when I have more time!
Consider visiting a nearby town or city next time you travel somewhere! It’s an easy way to make the most out of a trip!
