    December 6, 2015 in the United States ⋅

    We first arrived at Washington and went out for tea we then done a tour at night around to all the monuments and such, the Lincoln memorial was very impressive it looked unreal! We then headed home had couple drinks and called it a night. The following morning we had breakfast then caught the bus into town. We checked out the space musuem which i didnt find all that interesting really. Went to the holocaust musuem next which was fairly full on! Alot of very disturbing photos and videos. After the holocaust we needed a pick me up socwent for lunch n few beers. Ended up going home and everyone went out to shenanigans which was a fun night. Next day i didnt bother with anymore musuems. Lounged around until the nba which was washington wizards vs dallas mavericks. Was a close game with the mavericks winning by about 10 in the end.Read more

    Flying to Washington DC

    September 5, 2017 in the United States ⋅

    Yay! I have a 2 nights layover @ Washington!
    Yves immediately wanted to join me so we could combine this with a short visit to Jeanne & Patrick in West-Virginia. We never went to Morgantown before, so this was our chance!!
    Yves was the lucky bastard... he could enjoy business class all the way to US. For me... it was another day at work... so I was on duty for 8 hours... 😉Read more

    Selfie time @ Lincoln monument

    September 7, 2017 in the United States ⋅

    Even we saw the Lincoln monument before, it's impressive every time you walk up the stairs and there he is!!! Amazing...
    After this we had a nice breakfast and visited the free Washington zoo. It was a very nice morning. But at 2 pm it was time to go back to the airport and fly back home.
    Yves could sleep.... but I was on duty and had to work all night. I was so tired! Haha

    But so so thankful and happy we could experience Morgantown and the sunrise at DC! ❤

    Day 49 - Ashley & Alice Go To Washington

    October 26, 2016 in the United States ⋅

    More travelling today. Although the journey was not too long, we still manged to enter three new states.

    On arrival in DC we both felt more tired than usual. We decided on taking it easy in the evening and hitting all the sites tomorrow.

    Song of the Day:
    Jimi Hendrix - Foxy Lady (went through Delaware and this song came on in the car. For the Wayne's World fans out there)Read more

    Farmers Market (Washington D.C.)

    July 29, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Nachdem unsere gestrige Fahrt von New York nach Washington D.C. statt der geplanten 4 Stunden fast 7 Stunden gedauert hat. Sind wir zu Fuß nur noch eben schnell zum weißen Haus gelaufen um schon mal einen ersten Eindruck zu bekommen und haben anschließend auf dem Rückweg noch eine Kleinigkeit gegessen, bevor wir völlig erledigt ins Bett gefallen sind.

    Heute früh ging es dann frisch erholt los. Direkt in der Nähe unseres Hotels in der Nähe des Dupont Circle stolpern wir ganz unverhofft über einen Farmersmarket der wöchentlich Sonntags hier stattfindet. Wir besorgen uns erstmal einen Kaffee und schlendern anschließend über den Markt und schauen uns die verschiedenen Stände an.

    D.C.:troppi musei per due giorni

    July 29, 2017 in the United States ⋅

    A Washington c'è un'atmosfera che mi ricorda Expo ma dieci volte più grande. Lo foto forse danno un'idea della grandiositá dello Smithsonian Museum che conta 19 musei su una strada lunga 2km: troppi da visitare in due giorni. Optiamo per il Museo Naturale della scienza dove vedo per la prima volta un albatross e una meteorite!Read more

    Washington

    June 18, 2016 in the United States ⋅

    Breakfast at 7 when it opened. Love this hotel - it's in a great position, although it's. a bit of a walk to the Mall, but the staff are very friendly, the room is spacious and the 'extras' like all day coffee and water etc are great. Most of the staff are African and always great you with a 'welcome back' when you return.
    After breakfast we went for a walk around the neighbourhood to take some photos. The houses are gorgeous and very well maintained and it's a bit like living locally when you stay here.
    Stopped for lunch at Indigo Landing, by the river. A beautiful spot, very peaceful.
    After lunch we went to the Thomas Jefferson Library of Congress building - what a magnificent building. The ceiling in the dome is stunning and the floors are beautiful inlaid marble. A truly beautiful building. There were several exhibitions on but the most interesting to me was the Jacob Rhiis: How the Other Half Lives, an exhibition of photos etc of the tenement dwellers in NYC. Very poignant photos. We walked to the Mall to the Air & Space Museum. It's easy to see that it is the most popular of the Smithsonians - it was absolutely packed, people everywhere. Walked back through the National Botanic Garden to our room for a wine and to rest our feet as we'd been walking pretty much all day. When we were ready to eat we walked to Eastern Market but didn't find anything there so we walked back to Tortilla Coast, a Mexican Restaurant near the hotel. Really good Mexican food!
    Some shots of the Capitol Hill neighbourhood.
    The second last shot shows the front of the hotel with free bikes for use by guests and two water bowls by the pillar for four-legged guests!!
