Autumn is a time of remembering those who are not with us any more. Therefore, we set off to a place of reverence, to a place which celebrate their heroism. The place we visit today is Arlington National Cemetery. Over 400 thousand soldiers are buried there who fought in the Civil War, the Great War, the WWII, the war in Korea, Vietnam, Iran and Afghanistan as well as many other heroes who fought and died for their country. In this monumental cemetery, lies President John Fitgerald Kennedy with his brother and wife, and President William Howard Taft.

Today we will make a few trips from Phoenix to the surrounding area.
From cold Alaska, we head to the midwestern state of Michigan, where the city of Grand Rapids, the second largest in the state, awaits us. Historically, it was one of the centers of the furniture industry, home to five of the largest furniture companies in the world. No wonder Grand Rapids is nicknamed the "City of Furniture."

Washington D.C. is undoubtedly one of the most visited of American cities. Today we invite you to take a tour with us and see its sights, monuments and nice places.
I had visited Washington D. C. during my two-year stay in the US. I had spent there three days for I considered it a duty to visit the city not only for it is the US capital but also for its vicinity. It is about 250 miles/400 kilometers from New York.
We finish our several weeks long trip across the U.S. in the very heart of America. In New York City. It embodies freedom and fast life. We take a look at the most famous places and tell you several interesting facts.
After our last visit to Pennsylvania, today we travel to the neighboring state of Maryland. The state is known mostly for Camp David – the weekend residence of American presidents. Annapolis is teh state capital. The state is among ten smalles US states by area.
In the following weeks, we are going to visit some of the overlooked places in the USA. We begin our tour on the other end of the Atlantic in Pennsylvania, a state in the northwest of the country.
My trip to Alaska actually started long time before departure. Why Alaska, if beautiful places are really a lot? To fill my dream of travelling has helped me realize my father, an avid hunter, who for 20 years has travelled almost the whole world.
Almost two years while I was working as an au-pair I had lived in suburbia of the center of the whole globe. To describe every attraction worth visiting would take several articles. New York is the most monumental symbol of level of the world civilization. It consists of five districts - Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx and Staten Island.
I decided to spent part of Christmas in the former capital of the State of Pennsylvania and the whole United States. During my introductory au-pair course I met a Czech with whom I still stay in touch, she invited me to her home in Philadelphia.
I gave myself a four-day vacation in San Francisco in the middle of my two-year au-pair stay in the US. Everyone, who ever was there, never said anything except superlatives and mentioned the difference between east coast and west coast cities.
