Where I stayed
To be honest I've been a bit disappointed since Boston. To be fair I should have saved Boston for last. I've always wanted to go to Seattle, Chicago, and Boston. Last fall I finally visited Chicago and Seattle. I fell in love with both cities and knew I'd feel the same about Boston. So really, after Boston how could any city stand a chance? But I have to say that I have been very pleasantly surprised by Savannah and Charleston. Especially by Savannah, although Charleston certainly can hold it's own
I didn't see much of Charleston since I got here after six. After checking into the hotel I immediately drove to the waterfront and the walkway off of Concord St. I was right by a cute and busy street (maybe downtown?) with tons of restaurants. Like Savannah, Charleston has great architecture. It's still insanely humid, but the sun wasn't as strong today, so that helped a little. Plus I was so fascinated by these two cities that I actually didn't even notice the humidity too much. Well I noticed it, it's impossible not to, but I was too busy playing tourist to pay it much attention.
I can't believe this trip is almost over and I really can't believe all of the stuff I've seen and done and all the people I've met. Just looking at the map from travelpod I can't believe I drove all of that! I'm not going to add up the miles until I get home on Friday because I still have to drive back to DC tomorrow and am in a bit of denial about how far that really is. I've gotten into such a nice habit of driving and seeing a new city every day. It will be hard to go back to the daily grind of work and school, but this time I'm lucky because I have a cruise planned from Galveston to Cozumel in a month. And in November I'm going to Europe for a few weeks. So I'm really lucky this time because I already have trips to look forward to. If it weren't for Raina, my dog, a.k.a. the love of my life :) then I'd do the whole travel for a year thing. Until then, I'm seeing the world one trip at a time. And I'd say that I saw a lot this time.
