Today’s blog is brought to you by STA’s Alice Tolson, who spends her time pretending that living in Melbourne is amazing, while actually planning on escaping at every opportunity.
So you’ve decided you want to visit the home of American politics and, more importantly, ridiculously addictive political dramas. If you’re hoping to meet Frank Underwood you’re both a sucker for danger and very silly. He’s far too busy for the likes of you.
Fictional politicians aside, there are so many free attractions in DC, is really is perfect for the budget concious traveller. Read on for our pick of the best things to see, do and eat in the capital of the US of A.
This year, as part of our groundbreaking Reel Philippines series, we sent Josh Cowan and Jack Harries of JacksGap to The Philippines to film incredible volcanoes and National Parks.
