I love DC! I am so fortunate to have a job that allows me to travel and experience new places and meet new people. Last year was my first trip to DC and this year I was lucky enough to return to the beautiful District. I was able to take in iconic sites and war memorials that take your breath away.
The weather in October is the perfect temperature with beautiful blue skies. Both trips I was afforded the most glorious days!
The White House was much smaller in person than I expected but no less exciting to see.
The Washington Monument built to commemorate George Washington.
Another exciting aspect of both of my trips to DC was the opportunity to be hosted at the Ambassador of Panama to the United State’s residence. Emanuel Arturo González-Revilla’s beautiful mansion is nestled among all other embassies and homes of ambassador’s, not far from Vice-President Joe Biden’s as we heard the helicopters flying overhead.
Georgetown University was the main destination for this year’s work trip. I can’t believe the beauty in American campuses and buildings!
Georgetown has the most amazing townhouses that I desperately wanted an interior tour of. I vow to read up on the history of many of these charming places!
RiRa Irish Pub was a fun spot to enjoy a drink at the end of the day, so good we went back two nights in a row! Check out the whiskey room up stairs for this glamourous view.
There are so many bike trails for exercising throughout DC, bikers, walkers, runners, students and tourists everywhere you turn.
The faint rainbow in this photo is everything!
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial will give you chills. I plan to take a trip back soon with my dad so we can take more time to visit museums (which are free entrance) and the other memorials all around this beautiful District.
