Exploring Washington DC

I stopped in Washington for a long weekend. I came to visit my friend rather than for sightseeing but I ended up really enjoying it and was surprised there was so much to do. The architecture was just incredible; If you are planning a trip to the US definitely pop to Washington for a few days, I had such a great time exploring.

Since my friend lives here we ended up doing a lot of sightseeing and cramming the weekend full but if you have longer than a weekend then there are a million and one museums that you should check out...including the famous Hirshhorn. The queues to get inside were absolutely unreal so we just enjoyed the sculptures outside, including this embarrassed looking rock that I thought was so cute. It looks a bit sheepish doesn't it? Haha.

My friend has been living here for two years now and so is a seasoned tour giver haha. I was shown around all the famous monuments starting here...

...and finishing here.

I especially loved this quote:

We walked between all the monuments in one giant looop, and I mean giant, my friend's fitbit tracked that we walked 10 miles. No wonder I was tired afterwards! I was mad at myself for not wearing my steps tracker on the one day I did so much, typical! There's always competitions on them going on at work and I don't bother to enter. Isn't it typical that the one day I would've won it would be the day I don't wear my steps tracker haha?

To recover from all the walking we ate our weight in brunch in the city before heading to Georgetown. Georgetown was really pretty and full of beautiful buildings and restaurants. I also saw this weird little building with a door upstairs that looked a bit misplaced in the street haha. I didn't take that many photos here which is a bit of a shame but oh well, I will just have to go back again some other time.

Have you seen my posts on New York, New Orleans and Mardi Gras yet?

Until next time,
