#APTwinsTakeDC Day 1
Hello dearest Dreamers!
I hope this finds you well. I can't believe that we're already into October! Where the heck did the time go?
If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that I recently went on a trip with one of my best friends to Washington D.C.. It's my first time in our nation's capital and it was a lot of fun. We were there for about 2 days total (half of Wednesday (when we finally got there), all of Thursday, and half of Friday (before we left and made the 6 hour drive back to my house)). Honestly, we need much more time, but it was a great introduction to the city. You can see Day 2 and Day 3 here.
We left my house at around 1030 Wednesday morning and we made it to DC around 4pm. It was a long drive, but it wasn't too crazy. We checked into our hotel (I like the Red Roof Inn in Alexandria). There was a lot around us (except for a gas station) and we were only 25 minutes from the heart of DC.
After being lazy and watching some Food Network, we decided to go exploring. We drove to a parking garage in DC and decided to do some walking around. Seeing the monuments at night is fantastic, I highly recommend it. We walked to the Washington Monument and then to the World War II Memorial (and we could see the Lincoln Memorial in the background). I found out that while my phone doesn't take good photos at all in that lighting, my little point and shoot takes amazing photos!
I didn't take my dSLR camera with us because I didn't wanna lug that huge thing around with me. I was also concerned about it somehow getting damaged during our time in the city (but I've been known to take it with me to shows.....)
The cool thing about D.C. is that you can walk to a lot of places (as long as you don't mind the walking). After we saw the Washington Monument we walked across the street and looked at the World War II Memorial, which was pretty incredible.
We decided that we wanted to head back to our hotel room because we only had limited time for parking. We had lots of adventures the next day, and this was just the beginning. Before we left, I managed to capture this cool shot.
