About the owner: A creative and energetic self employed armchair traveler who enjoys living in Washington DC and exploring not only the well know sites but it's many hidden gems, want and willing to share them with all! I enjoy coffee, wine and good company!

Why the Owner Chose Northeast Washington, Washington, DC, USA:
Proximity to Metro! The area (not DC nicest) may lack charm, a distinct personality and trendy spots but that 2 minute walk to the Benning Metro Station overshadows any lack of aesthetics!
