The Road Trip: Washington DC

Oh Washington DC. We essentially only had one day to explore you, but we made the most of it. We started the day early by going and visiting the Smithsonian's Natural History Museum, followed by the American History Museum. Then we went on a two hour bike tour of all the monuments. That was followed by lunch and then the Portrait Gallery. I wish we had more time. I wish it weren't pouring crazy rain. I wish you had a better public transportation system.

The Road Trip: Monticello, Virginia

These are my favorite pictures from the road trip. We only brought film cameras for the trip. I had previously purchased a bunch of really cheap expired 35 mm film at an estate sale. I love the way this roll turned out. It looks like a set of kodachrome pictures. Anyways, enough gushing. These are from our visit to Monticello. It was such an incredible place to visit. We went there towards the end of the day, so we were the last tour of the day. That meant there were only a handful of people there, so it felt as it we had the place to ourselves. It was one of the highlights of the trip. Tom isn't a huge Jefferson fan, but we both left there impressed.

Road Trip: Savannah

Savannah was amazing. We did not go there with a list of things to do, I just knew I wanted to go to Back in the day bakery. It was such a dreamy place though, with its Spanish moss everywhere and old buildings. We spent the day walking around, eating ice cream, eating tacos & eating pralines. How did we not know about pralines before Savannah?!
