Hi everyone!

Last year I had the chance to go on an amazing trip to Washington DC, Philadelphia and New York with our school's history department. I am planning on doing History at uni and I thought it was such a great opportunity to I snapped it up straight away! The time finally came this week, I got back on Tuesday morning so I'm still slightly jet lagged but coffee and shopping sure is a great remedy!

Some of these photos were taken on my phone so don't judge!
I would definitely love to go to all these places again as there was so much I didn't get the opportunity to see! All of the cities were so diverse; Washington with it's clean, crisp streets with huge open spaces, Philadelphia's urban feel and New York's busy atmosphere and bright lights. It was just CRAZY!

I loved every minute of my trip...

Love Phoebe xxx

    1. You really should visit Washington, it's like no where else in the world! One minute you're in this little city, and the next you're in a huge open space full of grassy areas with the sun shining! Such a magnificent place. The history was amazing too, you'd never think it but it's so interesting to study. So many wars and the battle for independence. Can you tell I love it? ;)

      You have a great weekend too and thanks for the comment:) xxx
