The last stop on our road trip was Washington D.C. I can officially say that I have been there by plane, train, and automobile. We stayed in Arlington, VA and had a wonderful view from our room of Georgetown University...
After sweating our butts off watching the changing of the guards, we headed to get some lunch. What better place than Chinatown?
Soon after our journey to Chinatown, I had a melt down due to exhaustion. We headed back to the hotel to rest and, later, headed to Georgetown for some shopping. Our trip home was pleasant. We came through Charlotte and Atlanta. Beth and Brett were flying into Atlanta from the Dominican Republic and we just happened to time it right so that we could have dinner together.
A lot of people have asked about our road trip and here are my suggestions:
1. Give yourself more than we week! We packed too much into our days and it literally took me a week to recover!
2. Go to DC on the weekend. It was one of the smartest things we could have done. Room rates are nearly double during the week!
3. Take plenty of money so that you can do whatever it is that you want to do. It's more than likely a once in a lifetime opportunity, so you don't want to have any regrets.
We truly enjoyed ourselves! If you get a chance, you should definitely take a road trip!
