Days 146-148: Georgia

Day 146 (10/24/14): Brunswick, GA | Savannah, GA One of the many (and most important) lessons we've learned from being on the road and living full-time in an RV is that you can only plan so much before fate steps in with her own plans (while laughing ominously, shaking her head and saying "Silly humans!").… Continue reading Days 146-148: Georgia

Days 142-143: Georgia & South Carolina

Day 142 (10/20/14): Savannah, GA | Hilton Head Island, SC Even though we were done with Charleston, we weren't quite finished seeing South Carolina yet.

With the island being only about 30 miles from Savannah, it's actually much closer… Continue reading Days 142-143: Georgia & South Carolina

Day 130 (10/8/14): Richmond, VA | Raleigh, NC Having our fill of Richmond, we were ready to leave Virginia.

Days 125-126: Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland & Washington, D.C.

Day 125 (10/3/14): Narvon, PA | Delaware | College Park, MD This was a driving day. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Pennsylvania and appreciated all the historic places we were able to see.

Day 124: Pennsylvania (Part 2)

Day 124 (10/2/14): Philadelphia, PA For our last Pennsylvania destination, we visited Philadelphia, known as the "birthplace of American democracy" and "The City of Brotherly Love." Wondering how Philadelphia received the "brotherly love" nickname, I discovered that it's not so much a nickname as it's actually a literal translation. Philadelphia in Greek basically means "brother"… Continue reading Day 124: Pennsylvania (Part 2)

Day 119 (9/27/14): Leominster, MA | Providence, RI We began this beautiful sunny day by taking a scenic drive up to Leominster (pronounced "Lemon-ster" by the locals). As we traveled north, we appreciated bursts of autumn colors in the foliage bordering the highway.   But while it was starting to look like fall, it sure didn't… Continue reading Days 119-120: Massachusetts & Rhode Island (Part 2)

Day 118: Massachusetts & Rhode Island (Part 1)

Day 118 (9/26/14): Boston, MA | Newport, RI | Providence, RI Justin and I had a fight last night, and I'm not ashamed to admit that it wasn't our first fight on this road trip (nor was it our last).

Day 117: Massachusetts

Day 117 (9/25/14): Boston, MA Justin and I had both been to Boston before, but we had never been with each other. Plus, neither of us had a particularly good experience when we visited in the past. Justin had been there on a business trip and didn't get to see much of the city. And… Continue reading Day 117: Massachusetts
