    DISNEY!! Magic Kingdom

    November 27, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    It truely was magical! The weather was perfect and we did all the rides on our list and the queues weren't too bad. The best ride was definitely "It's a small world" and the 60 minute wait was totally worth it! The parade and fireworks were also awesome!

    Hitting the road

    November 15, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 5 °C

    We hired a car in DC and hit the road heading south through Virginia. We spent the night in Blacksberg which is a University town and we found a delightful diner called Lefties that had some delicious craft beers that they brew on site. We also went to the movies and saw Orient Express and ate a crazy amount of american candy!Read more

    Library of Congress

    November 14, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 8 °C

    Wow! It was amazing and we only got to spend a short amount of time there before it closed. The reading room was awesome and their collection size is... 16 million books and 120 million other items! It is definately the library of record for the US if not the world. We also got a personal tour from Rod, a library docent who was clearly about to leave for the day but insisted on giving us the highlights tour (I think because he loved Aussies and Bek told him I was a librarian!). The library of Congress holds one of only 3 copies of the Gutenberg Bible that is both complete, and printed in vellum (made from calf skin) from 1455. A pretty amazing place for a librarian to visit!Read more

    Tour of the Capitol

    November 14, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 9 °C

    We did a tour of the US Capitol building in the afternoon and it was fantastic. It is a beautiful building with a lot of history. The dome that sits on top took 11 years to contruct and sits 88 meters high.
