Road Trippin' - Part 1

I LOVE to travel.  It's a hobby of mine I don't get to enjoy very often for various reasons.  Most likely, the same things that keep other people from traveling...obligations with work, lack of money, obligations outside of work...those fun things.  

When 2012 started, several of my friends were making life changing decisions.  Several graduated from college, a few got engaged, a handful had was crazy how fast life seemed to be catching up with us.  My own graduation has always seemed so far away I just assumed the world was frozen, but that is definitely not the case.

So, I made a vow to myself to travel as much as possible this year, with as many people as possible.  I realize that as time goes by I'll have fewer friends able to up an tag along on a trip, and once I graduate and start looking at serious jobs I might not be able to either.  Thus bringing me to:

The Road Trip...Part 1

West Virginia is so Pretty, huh?
Yesterday my mother and I packed up the car and hit the road for a few days.

The plan had originally been a month long road trip to California, but I compromised with a southern road trip with my mom after those plans fell through.  It's really nice to be able to go places we've never been, though, even if it's not California.

It's Alright...but I'm still California Dreaming
 The first haul was a rough one.  We hit the road early Sunday morning to drive the 9.5 hour trip to Georgia. We made amazing time actually, even after napping at a rest area...

I've never been to Georgia.  I've been through it, but I've never stuck around to actually see it and enjoy it.  I had a teacher tell me once that I would fall in love with Savannah and that I should just move there immediately after High School.  After hearing that, of course I wanted to visit.  It's been close to the top of my list ever since.

So of course, it's going to be our first be continued!


  1. I'm loving this idea! I've been hit with the travel bug myself. If only I wasn't dirt poor... :(

    1. It was so much fun! Everyone should take a huge road trip at some point in their life. :-)
