Travel Recaps: Washington

If you see a recurring motif of a beanie in the pics - that's yours truly.
Epic. That's how I would describe my trip to Washington last March. It was hectic, stressful but oh-so-exciting. We embarked on a road trip (more like a "coach" trip) through 5 state lines. New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Washington. All in one weekend. It was a mad idea but it turned out to be great decision.

Washington DC is a place I would love to revisit. We gasped at every turn. Looked at each other and screamed because it felt like we were in a movie set. Especially this friend who had just seen National Treasure on the previous flight - he re-watched it later that night. But what got me super excited was the visit to the Smithsonian National Air and Space museum. I was like a kid in a candy store, on the verge of hyperventilating because of the planes and models. I had to be dragged off after skipping National Museum of American History to spend the whole day in the air and space museum (Who cares about the most famous diamond in the world, Hope diamond? I prefer planes any day).

Do you like museums? Or find them boring?

I like how you've captured Washington DC. Look forward to see the other road trips too (5 State lines) Never been to DC and would need to take advantage of long airport connections next time. :)

Great pictures of what it seems was a nice trip. Museums are such a treasure of mankind, they're one of my favourite things in this world!!

Wow, I can't believe you covered all those states in one weekend. It must've been exhausting! I haven't been to DC since I was about 5 or 6, so I definitely need to go back there. And visit the Smithsonian, definitely. On the topic of museums, I'm not a huge fan -- I always find that I grow sleepy rather quickly in them, but I do love art museums, particularly if they're contemporary or modern art museums.
