Washington D.C. trip

On Thursday last week Tim, his parent’s and I boarded an Amtrak train bound for the nation’s Capital. We were there for an extra long weekend (Thursday to Sunday) but we didn’t have nearly enough time to see and do everything*. Note: if you are planning a trip to D.C you really need to spend a week to make sure you do everything properly. But although we were time poor, tired and cold we still all had a fantastic time. Our highlights included wandering around the streets in Georgetown, the trip to Arlington National cemetery to see the eternal flame at the John F. Kennedy Gravesite and the Tomb of the unknown soldiers and exploring all the memorials dedicated to ex-president’s, learning about the forefathers of American and their passion for freedom and equality.
