It’s travel Tuesday today, and I’m taking you to Washington, D.C. It was my first time there. A group of us decided to head to the nation’s capital to experience a taste of the popular cherry blossom festival. This is held every year to celebrate the gift of these beautiful trees given to our country as a friendship offering from Japan in 1912. The experience did not disappoint, as these some 1,000 trees are planted all over the capital. We arrived early Friday and got to experience the area with less traffic. The trade off for being less crowded was some overcast weather, as reflected in some of the photos. Come Saturday, though, the crowds were insane! What a difference from Friday to Saturday. If you ever plan on going to experience this I highly recommend going a day or two sooner so you can have the blossoms all to yourself!
