The capital of the USA! I have family who live here, so as well as it being a stunning city to visit, it was nice to catch up with my aunt and cousins (especially the one I hadn't seen for 15 years!).
We had quite a nice relaxing few days, hanging out with my cousins, and pottering around the city. There was of course some shopping, but more on that later!
My aunt took us out to Arlington, to visit the US Marine Corps Memorial (which is a LOT bigger than I thought it would be) and the National Cemetary (which is also HUUUGE!).
We also visited Alexandria, a small historic town in Virginia, further down the Potomac. It reminded me a lot of Exeter and small towns in parts of England.. perhaps unsurprising as this was a former colonial town...
We left Washington D.C after 4 days on an early morning train from Union Station to Philadelphia...
