A few weeks ago I had the chance to visit Arlington Cemetery, Old Town Alexandria and the DC Zoo. That Saturday, I visited Arlington and Old Town Alexandria in Virginia. It was humbling to see the resting places of so many great people such as JFK and various Supreme Court Justices. After walking around Arlington, I headed towards Old Town Alexandria for lunch. I love Old Town, especially King Street because of all of the cute little shops and places to eat. It's a great place to see a historic colonial town if you are visiting DC and are short on time. I also paid a visit to Port City brewery, which by the way, has some delicious beer. On Sunday, I decided to visit the zoo. If you know me, you know I love zoos and will go any chance I get. The DC Zoo is one of my favorites because it is one of the few zoos in the U.S that has pandas and its free! (Yay for broke grad students like me!)

With summer in full swing, this is the perfect time to pack up the car and take a road trip to someplace you've always wanted to visit. While there are many road trip posts about what to pack, what you should check on your car before you leave and even fun places to visit, I want to talk about something a little different- driving etiquette or as I like to call them, the unofficial rules of the road. Now this is not some post aimed at bashing other drivers, it's about helping you guys, drivers and passengers, be safe on the road so you can get to your awesome destinations, wherever they may be.
I apologize for dropping the ball on blogging yet again, but these last few weeks in DC have been nothing shy of busy. I have been completely swamped working for my internship and working for school. It's tough being a adult. Luckily, I have somehow managed to get my butt out of bed on the weekends to explore the city, despite being exhausted beyond max. So far I've been able to see the Library of Congress, the Supreme Court, the Capitol, the Monuments, Eastern Market, the Navy Yard and Georgetown. And to take a break from sightseeing and being in the blazing heat (thanks humidity!), I've also been able to visit some of the local breweries, such as Capitol City, DC Brau and Atlas.
If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you would see that I left California awhile ago and have actually been in D.C for over a week. I apologize for the late post but moving across the country, doing stuff for school and trying to see as many sites as possible before work started kept me very busy last week. Anyways, back to what I was trying to say......
