I wasn’t really into politics and it seemed like a lot of the most visited places in Washington DC were political. But Washington DC tourism is so much more than just the Whitehouse or Capitol Hill, although these are important places to visit in Washington.

Travelling alone has never bothered me before and up until this point I have really relished the freedom and excitement of it all. But now I must admit I am feeling a little lonely, and what better city to share the blues with than Memphis. Continue Reading
