Hi, remember me, I used to blog about fun adventures, but with opening a business, teaching, judging, and gutting a house, traveling adventures have been few and far between. Latley, we have had adventures though! A friend of ours from Australia came over for a visit. Josh worked with her at Halliburton and I lived with her after Josh left Australia. She quit her job in January and is just seeing the world (jealous much) she has seen the northern lights, did an indoor skydiving camp, snowboarded, snorkeled in Mexico and Belize, and came to see us. She has many other places planned before she goes back to Australia but we were very happy she chose to include us. Since she has been traveling the world the bar was set pretty high for her trip here, and I loved it. It made me remember how I used to look at Australia. It made me look at the area we are living in like an adventure to tackle and I needed to figure out the best plan for the week and a half she was here. While I was at work I planned things for Di and Josh to do, Kennedy Space Center, and airboat ride were on their list. As soon as I got off work for Spring Break we headed to Savannah, Ga to meet Mamma, eat southern food and experience Southern hospitality.
The first day we toured and walked the historical district, we even saw a wedding with no witnesses. We knew it was supposed to rain the next day so we decided to do as much outside as possible. Don’t worry we did hit Mrs. Wilkes Boarding House for food though. No trip to Savannah is complete without a stop there. Di couldn’t believe she could get a alcoholic drink and just walk around outside. I let her know that this was not the norm. Only a couple cities let people do that. That night for dinner we were still full from lunch so we decided for ice cream from Leopold’s instead. Wow! That is a place we had never tried but for sure should be added to every Savannah list! We ended the night with a Speakeasy, yeah would not recommend it!
The next morning it was raining so we put on our rain gear and headed to a new Savannah favorite. Maple Biscuit Company and Coffee Fox for coffee. We headed to the prohibition museum, which was interesting. I guess I never really paid attention to prohibition. Carry A Nation was quite a character (look her up). The tour ended with a real funny Speakeasy! It was great place to stay dry. The night ended with a ghost bike tour on a 15 person bike. I love Savannah every time I go! Each time I discover new treasures! My list of must do now include, eat at Wilkes Boarding House, coffee at Coffee Fox, breakfast at Maple Street Biscuits (order the squawking goat), ice cream at Leopold’s...until next time!
