The end. Finito. Farewell. Washington D.C. marked the final few days of our 180-days-around-the-world adventure. In many ways, we felt ready to go home. That is until the very dawning realisation of reentering the real world crashed over us!
This was the second to last stop on our round the world trip - and it was EPIC, including sights, celebs, plenty of cocktails, and hanging in Brooklyn!
Bostonians speak funny. And that’s coming from a Brummie and whatever-someone-from-Nottingham-is-called. We’re used to unusual accents. But Baw-stan’s drawl is something else!
Tina Fey, Bill Murray, Steve Carrell, Amy Poehler, Mike Meyers, Dan Aykroyd, John Candy. Is there a comedian on this list you don’t LOVE?

We weren't 'Sleepless in Seattle', more 'Sh*tfaced in Seattle!', but then it was Chris' birthday! How fortunate then for our hangovers this is the city where Starbucks was born, & we made two new friends who showed us all the sights worth seeing! But it's not only the world's largest coffee chain this city has given to the world...
We're normally pretty lazy human beings, opting for a lie in than any morning exercise. Untrue to form - in our final week in Peru we decided to cram as much action in as possible, mainly because this adventure junkie's paradise is so cheap!
