My UK Trip: Part I The Adventure Begins

Sorry this took so long but I was distracted by other, more important, things: The Lakers... What else? Honestly.

So what have I been up to for the past few weeks? Well, I went on a backpacking adventure with my friend Syanna to the UK... with a quick stop in DC!

*This is more of a journal for myself... but I hope you enjoy it too! Feel free to post a comment if you want to see more pictures of one place in particular (keep in mind I took over 300 pictures and there is no way I can post them all here) or if you have any questions (about backpacking, hostels, living the wild life, etc.).

Day 1-3: Washington DC





Days 1 and 3 were mostly spent in airports. But here is a rundown of our 14 hour day (Day 2) in Washington DC:
- I rode the Metro for the first time!
- We got lost (not for the first time and definitely not for the last time)
- We saw The White House, Capital Building, Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, WWII Memorial, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Korean War Memorial, Air and Space Museum, Natural History Museum, and the Pentagon.
- May favorite part? We got to see our friend, Cady, and her son! We haven't seen her since she graduated with her Masters a year ago. It was nice to see a friendly and familiar face in our Nations Capital.
- I would highly recommend spending more then one day in DC. There is so much to see. But hey, as you will see, that is what the trip is all about: move fast and see awesome stuff!

Coming soon:
Part II: Day 5-7 (London, Sailsbury, Bath, and Cardiff)
