Things I want to do next week.

I have today and tomorrow at work and I cannot wait to be done.

I’m finding this quite amusing because I like going on holiday but I haven’t been too excited for this one, probably ’cause it’s already been postponed once already.  Ok, so the weather forecast in DC isn’t fantastic but I’ve ready to be on holiday. Also I found out yesterday that John won’t actually be in the country when I am (this is the problem with doing a job like that, you never know when you’ll be called away and it’s not like it’s not important and you can say no.) However it’s a new city (and country for that matter) that I’ve never seen before and I get to spend some time with Matt which will be just as much fun.

So now I need to work out how I’m going to entertain myself during the day when Matt is working. I’m pretty open about that because I don’t know the city at all but come on it’s the capital city so I’ve started to make a list!

1) Mount Vernon.

Come on, it’s history and it’s fascinating. Also it has a bourbon still.

2) The Smithsonian.

19 museums and a zoo.

3) New Columbia Distillers

They make gin. Of course I want to go.

4) The National Mall

Not going would be like coming to London and not seeing Big Ben (yes I know Big Ben is the bell not the Tower).

5) Library of Congress

Because I can.

6) Sona Creamery

Wine bar that makes it’s own cheese or cheesemongers that also sells wine! I don’t know but I want to visit and I’m sure this is something that Matt and John will have no issue with!

7) Tudor Place

I like old buildings

I’m still toying with the idea of a day in New York or Philadelphia because it’s not that far away, it takes the same amount of time to go to Manchester from London, which I’ve done in a day!

And so far that’s all I’ve come up with, I know there’s a ton of stuff I’ve missed and  I’m hoping that Matt will fill me in on the other things to and see.

Anyone else got any suggestions?

    In no particular order: Hirshhorn gallery, the President’s memorials, Greenwich Village, Capitol buildings tours, Georgetown, Arlington (pristine and beautiful), Washington monument if you can go up it, The Sackler, Folger Theatre, and Whatsit knows how many other galleries and museums…keep the camera well charged 😉

      Thanks, no going up the Washington Monument, it got damaged in an earthquake! Tudor Place is in Georgetown so planning on doing a fair bit of walking around there, weather permitting!
