The Traveling Bottle

My Peculiar PPL Insulated Water Bottle didn’t like the fact that I often travel without him, so to make it up to him I booked a special trip for the both of us to go to Washington, DC. Despite the fact that he lacked proper behavior from time to time, it was an enjoyable journey from start to end.

Bottle all Buckled-In
He has never been on a plane before, so I reserved a jet to fly us there. During take-off, he kept his nervous emotions bottled-up so I wouldn’t notice that he was scared.

Bottle iPad-ing on the Plane
After we were in the air, he was overflowing with such excitement that he eagerly borrowed my iPad to research the sites that he wanted to visit

Bottle Napping
Eventually he was tired of researching and he took a nap on the couch

Bottle Sleeping
After we arrived at to the hotel, he slept through the night and woke up the next morning ready to hit the town

Bottle All Strapped-In
He hasn’t learned how to ride a bike yet, so I carried him on the front of mine as we went to grab a bite to eat

Bottle Eating
We went to “Baked and Wired” to get breakfast and he ordered the ice cream sandwich because he’s a fan of cold things

Bottle Tired of Eating
After a couple of bites, he rolled over to take a siesta. While he slept, I finished the rest of his ice cream.

Bottle Loves Water
Then we hit the town and for some odd reason, he took a huge interest in water fountains. I guess he’s a fan of water.

Bottle Really Loves Water
He stood in awe of this fountain for a while and he even tried to convince me to let him hold some of the water. I said no because I had to draw the line somewhere!

Bottle REALLY REALLY loves water
He stood and admired the water for a while, but the people walking around it distracted him and partially obstructed his view…

Bottle Screaming at People
…so he screamed at them until his head popped off. Eventually they left.

He asked me to take a picture of him in front of this water fountain so he could show his siblings

Bottle Contemplating Swimming
Then he wanted this picture to show his ex-girlfriend

Bottle Getting Carried Away
Then he got carried away and jumped in the fountain

Bottle Admiring Art
We watched a little bit of art

Bottle In Front of his Favorite Quote
This was his favorite quote, so he wanted a photo in front of it.

Bottle Water-Gazing
Then he went back to admiring water

Bottle Tired of Walking
Then he was tired of walking around…

My Carrying Bottle
…so I had to carry him.

Bottle Taking a Picture of Me
While pedaling to our next location, he spotted a flag of Trinidad and Tobago (my birth country), so he wanted to take a picture of me standing in front of it. Unfortunately, his photo taking skills aren’t very good.

Bottle Enjoying Monuments
He stared at The Reflecting Pool

Bottle Enjoying More Monuments
Then he stared at the Lincoln Memorial

Bottle Enjoying More Monuments
Then he wanted a photo with one of his favorite people– Martin Luther King Jr. I told him that this was merely a memorial of MLK Jr. He didn’t believe me and called me a liar. Rude!

Bottle Water-Gazing
While I watched the Jefferson Memorial, he admired the water in front of it

Bottle Enjoying Space Exhibits
All of a sudden, he took an interest in Space technology because he saw that he resembled the Saturn V rocket

Bottle Viewing the First Plane
Then he saw the model of the first plane and was convinced that Peculiar PPL could build a better one.

Bottle Enjoying Starbucks
He kept complaining that he was thirsty, so I bought a Passion Tea Lemonade for him. He tried to make the Starbucks cup his next girlfriend, but I told him to behave himself.

Bottle on the Way Back Home
Then after a couple more sites, we went to Union Station and prepared to head home

Bottle on the Train
On the train, he sat in his seat and patiently awaited our arrival at our destination.

Bottle Water-Gazing
But before leaving, he asked me to hold him up to the window so he could stare at the water.

He thought that this was the best trip ever— not because of the sites in Washington, DC, but because he was able to see a bunch of different bodies of water. If I knew that he was this fascinated by water, I would have let him stare at the faucet every time I washed the dishes. Now that I see that he is a cool and compact travel companion, I will probably take him everywhere I go from now on!
