ONWARD. My road trip may be nearing the end, but I still found some places in the Southeast worth wandering. Week 36 rounded out my quest for the Contiguous 48.
First up, Savannah. I can’t believe I’d never explored this city until now. The spooky/ethereal Spanish Moss trees make for some of the sweetest streets and city squares I’ve ever seen. LOVE Savannah.
Next, I ventured further south to the Sunshine State, my first appearance here since #FlyingTo took me to West Palm Beach way back in August. This time I didn’t trek quite as south, though I did make some stops in Jacksonville and St. Augustine, two more cities I’d never before seen. St. Augustine especially fascinated me. How has this city existed since 1565?! Insane.
Finally, I turned north and returned to some familiar South Georgian farmland, visiting old college friends and even reuniting with my old collegiate home of yesteryear: Brewton-Parker College. I devote a chapter to BPC in my book, and those who know me well know how much that dinky middle-of-nowhere school means to me and my story. It’s changed a lot in nine years, but it’s always special going back.
Check out my favorite moments from the wandering week that was! Stay tuned as the journey continues . . .
