Washington, DC - 6/29/03

East Coast of USA (1 of 9) :

Every 5 years at Adobe, employees are allowed to take 3 weeks "sabbatic" leave. What a terrific benefit. You're forced to take a long vacation! So we took an extra week - to make it more than 4 weeks away from home. The longest vacation in our life.

We thought about NZ, Vietnam and some other exotic locations, before having the great idea "Let's go and look for America!". So we went to Alaska for the first week. click here

The next three weeks were spent touring the East Coast of America and we visited Washington, DC, Philadelphia, NY, Boston, Maine and Niagara. A really amazing and unforgettable vacation.

The trip began with flying from San Jose (SJC) to Baltimore (WIA) - changing in Chicago. On our first day in Washington we explored the sights of the Mall, the Memorials, The Whitehouse, and The Capitol. Washington is very impressive - no less than you'd expect from the capital of the richest country in the World.
