Hello from Washington DC

11 days ago, I was at Los Angeles. Today, I am typing this post out from a hotel room in the Dupont Circle area of Washington DC. In between, I traveled nearly all of USA’s south and boy did I enjoy myself. If you had been following my social channels or the hashtags of #DiscoverAmerica and #RoadTripUSA over the last 11 days, you would have seen the amount of fun I had at Los Angeles, San Antonio, Austin, New Orleans, Baltimore and now at Washington DC.

Each place had such a unique character. Their people, landscapes, food, traditions and more kept me enthralled and my camera clicking crazily. Traveling by train through California, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Virginia, Georgia and South Carolina and seeing the different kinds of landscapes was an experience that I will always treasure. From deserts to mighty lakes, from green forests to swamps, from the mighty Mississippi bridge to the wide open ranches of Texas, I guess I saw enough to give me a high on every day of my train journey.

I am full of stories from this road trip that I want to share with you and which I plan to in due course all with pictures and videos. As always, you can keep checking the blog for these stories from the USA. As I sign off, here is a picture of one of the top monuments from the capital city of the United States of America that I visited a day ago.

Enjoying the view of the National Monument at National Mall, Washington DC

This is the National Monument located in the National Mall area of Washington DC that is home to prominent buildings, monuments and memorials like the White House, Capitol Building, Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial and many more. It is popular with locals and tourists alike. For locals, it is a great outdoor space for a relaxed walk and for outdoor physical activities while the tourists love this place for its history, importance and of course for taking selfies!!
