My work trip to D.C. was transformed into a family road trip. I’m always looking for opportunities to travel with my kids, something I didn’t experience much in my youth or in adult life for that matter. I’m a firm believer in road trips long and short, alone or with family or friends. During my past 3 years as a program manager at CAPE, I have traveled with in the US more than I ever have.

We walked the National Mall, saw all of the major monuments, visited many of the Smithsonian Museums, took a day trip to Alexandria, and some days just hung out in Dupont Circle (near our hotel).
