Seven states in two days
It´s Labor Day weekend and me and two of my friends decided to go to Washington. We booked a hotel, rented a car and packed our bags for a road trip.
It has been an amazing weekend. Travelling, discovering new places – and to have the possibility to see the world, I love it. It’s not only the end station of the trip that is important to me. I love being on the road. It make me feel relaxed, free and so happy. And especially when you have good friends as your company, singing and laughing in the car together all way through seven states.
We left New Paltz late Friday afternoon. On the way to Washington DC we decided to see Philadelphia by night. The city was beautiful and I would love to go back for a longer visit. We arrived late to our hotel outside DC, but after checking in we decided to take a nightly tour in Washington to see the most famous places by night. Even if we we’re so tired after six hours in a car, it was totally worth it.
The Saturday was intense but fantastic. We went to the White House, the Capitol, walked through the mall to the Washington monument, the World War II memorials and the Lincoln Memorial. We visited the Arlington National Cemetery and the Washington National Cathedral. We had dinner in Georgetown (definitely my favorite spot this trip) and we finished the day with a glass of Prosecco in a spinning sky bar with a beautiful view over the city. What a day! We all slept like babies that night.
Sunday was the last day of our trip and we decided to go back to Georgetown. It’s a really beautiful area, with a lot of shopping, restaurant and a nice park area by the river. After a good brunch, shopping and coffee by the water, our trip back towards New Paltz started. To get the most out of our road trip we decided to stay for dinner in Baltimore, and at last but definitely not least we decided to take a tour in Manhattan by night. Driving through Times Square, Fifth Avenue and finally over Brooklyn Bridge.
In Brooklyn we did our last stop – just to enjoy the view of the amazing city that we can call our home for two months later this fall. Wow, New York – it’s going to be fantastic
