History. Friends. Adventure. Those are the three words that come to mind when I think of my trip to the nation’s capital,
I explored Washington D.C with a prestigious tour group, People to People. You get invited and get to go visit the capital with people from all parts of the country and the world. To be invited you have to be considered a leader by your teachers, and have to have a good grade point average. Being a good student and leader really paid off to go on this trip.
During this trip I made friends from all over the country and world. I met a girl from
Everywhere we went was an adventure. We took a stroll through
Some things didn’t work out so well on the trip. One of them was eating. We didn’t eat at very good places. They were mostly buffets, but they didn’t have anything I liked, and we even had to eat at a firehouse! Lets just say I wasn’t very fond of the food. Also, getting everyone up and ready to go in the morning wasn’t very efficient. Partly because we had so many people though. Those were the only things that really didn’t work very well.
We were very efficient with everything else though. We had all buses on different schedules to be places at specific times and to leave, and that worked out well. Rooms were perfect too, same number of people in rooms and lights out at 10. So overall our timing, and following directions was good. Almost everything worked out well, with very few mishaps.
My trip to Washington D.C is one I will never forget. It was a timeless adventure through a time machine.
