Washington; Capitol

Under construction.

Everytime i head to Washington, there's bound to be something under construction.

The last time it was the Lincoln memorial reflecting pool. This time, it was the Capitol.














Washington; National Air and Space Museum

Next stop, Washington.

I wanted to visit Washington on free and easy because there are so many museums to explore. Especially, when i had a great experience during 2011 when I had visited Washington. However my plan was scrapped as most rooms were priced at a premium during our intended date of visit and also it clashed with Memorial Day Weekend. Tour was a much cheaper option.

The tour brought us to visit only 1 museum for 1 - 2 hours. It's not enough because there were so much more to explore and learn about. So I believe that I will come back to visit again.


& also, i have recently read a book by Andy Weir - The Martian and really enjoyed it so much. I think the museum would be so much more interesting to me now that i have read a book about space travel and astronauts. so yeah, i can't wait to go back to Washington!



















Philadelphia; Liberty bell

In June, i headed to the states to visit Mom and little sister Gina together with Kev.

So since we are in the states, Kev and i took a tour around Washington, Philadelphia and New York (Corning, Watkins Glen and Niagara Falls).

First Stop: Philadelphia

Didn't see the Liberty bell up close because there is a large crowd queuing since it was memorial week. Caught a glance of it at the side.

Tried Philly cheese steak at one of the food court, but it wasn't that fantastic.
