Washington DC – Day 5

Our last day in Washington…..  It felt like we had been in the city for about 4 weeks rather than 4 days by this point.  In a good way.  Still there was so much that we hadn’t had time to do, so we would like to go back at some point to see more, although there are plenty of other places to visit in the country first while we have the chance.

We left quite early and managed to get out onto the motorway in about 2 minutes, which was great as we didn’t fancy getting stuck in the early morning rush hour traffic going the wrong way across town.  We stopped off at IKEA which is about half an hour outside the city.  Strange how being in a Swedish superstore can make you feel just like you’re back in the UK again!  I kept forgetting where I was until I heard an American accent every so often.  Managed to control myself quite well and only spent about $30 which is amazingly disciplined of me.  Just got a few little housey bits like a nice memory foam bath mat and a door mat.  No point in spending a fortune on a place that you know you’ll only be living in for three years.  Very tempted to take pictures of ourselves relaxing in the kitchen and living room displays in an attempt to fool our UK friends that this is actually our new apartment 🙂 .  I can promise you that we didn’t do it though, so any pictures you do see are actually real.  Or are they?

After that it was a nice uneventful drive back home.  And, being the first time we have “returned” there since moving in, it really did feel like coming back home, not just to “that place we’re currently living in”.  Home sweet home.  Bye bye Washington, best just get the washing on then, I suppose.
