washington dc // adventure

I live a 45 minute train ride away from Washington DC. Do I go there every weekend? I WISH. There is so much to do there it's unreal. I love walking down the Mall in the rain, looking at all of the beautiful museums. I love walking along the Reflecting Pool to the Lincoln Memorial and then standing on top of those steps and seeing the Monument and Capitol glittering in the horizon. There is so much wonderful in that place. 

This past weekend I went with a couple of friends to the DC Convention Center to check out a science convention and then we went waltzing along the streets of DC. It was quite the adventure. And, of course, I didn't bring my camera. Don't worry, I kicked myself about it. But I did take plenty of instagram/vsco film pictures. That seemed to cover it quite nicely. 

[this is the first adventure post of this month. if you blog about your adventures, which i hope you do, please link them up at this post! :)]

If you have an iPhone or an iTouch, i would really recommend spending the 99c to get this amazing VSCO film camera app. Literally worth every penny and piece of chocolate you spend on it.

Seriously? This is awesome. Someday I'm going to D.C. And dancing in big cities is my favorite thing. And dancing in the middle of nowhere. And everywhere in between. But crazy amazing!

I wasn't aware they took chocolate in exchange for iPhone apps now! Wow, this is great news... I have a whole bag of M&Ms, and no money :P

This was very cool. I've been to DC once, with my Grandfather before he passed. I was only eight or nine, so my memory is limited. I'd like to go again now that I'm all growed up.
