Trip planning can be both fun and stressful. I am currently planning (last-minute) a trip to Washington D.C. It will be my first time in the city and I am flying there on my own very early in the morning. So, there's the usual "how do I get from the airport to my hotel?" without being fleeced or lugging luggage on various modes of transport instead. Well, those are not the joys of travel. The joy is seeing something new, something you may have seen so many times on tv but now will see in front of your own eyes and get to another great museum institute that can be ticked off that list. I have been wanting to visit the Smithsonian institute museums for years and years and I can't believe I will be there soon!
