Location: Tallahassee, Florida and Savannah, Georgia, U.S.A.
This post will be bite-sized compared to what you are used to. In case you thought we had dropped off the map, we are so sorry! It has been a time of transition and figuring out our next steps.
I finish up my Master’s degree in less than 2 months (I know, I can’t believe it either!) and we will be leaving the South to start our next big adventure in June. Our time here has been very bittersweet.
After we decided to move, we realized we had barely explored the area that we’ve been living in. Since we haven’t had time for long-distance travel, we’ve been satiating the travel bug by taking a lot of weekend excursions to new places in North Carolina and surrounding states. Most notably: I went to Tallahassee to see my beautiful friend Jen get married and had a delightful day trip to Savannah with some girlfriends.
Here are a few photos from my travels. I particularly enjoyed how unexpectedly lush and green Tallahassee was! The Spanish moss and azaleas blanketed everything. We stayed in an enormous purple house with a view of Lake Jackson and I was able to visit the boardwalk and Lake Jackson Mounds State Park. There were a ton of other nature preserves in the area that I did not get a chance to visit.
I did not have too much time in Savannah, but I fell in love instantly. The public parks and Victorian homes overwhelmed my heart. It was St. Patrick’s Day weekend and all the public fountains were dyed green for the occasion. We walked along the riverwalk and I was able to eat the best fried green tomatoes of my life. Next time, I’ll be sure to take a ghost tour and visit the countless historical sites in the area.
Stay tuned tonight to hear all about our plans!! We will also be doing lots of international traveling over the summer and a full website re-design with lots of new features for our loyal readers.
