I had waited a long, long time to visit the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington D.C, USA.  One freezing evening in February 2016, I left the National Air and Space Museum (free and well worth a visit) and walked over to Constitution Gardens.

Having stood and read the wall for nearly an hour, it was only as I was about to leave did I notice the amazing reflection of the sun setting against the highly polished black granite.

Blogger Request:

Once a month I like to run an article from a guest blogger who will share their top 5 items for travel (more if you wish).  Within the 5 needs to be at least 1 gadget, 1 app and 1 item of luggage along with a short intro on you and the type of traveller you are.  I will then publish the post on my site and Social media outlets.  All of which will link back to you and your profile/s, this is not a paid assignment, but a oppurtunity to share your view on tech and raise the profile of your own site.

 If you are interested please get in touch using the comments or email tom@techfortravel.co.uk.
