Headed to the beach this summer? Make sure you put enough sunscreen on and pack a few extra things! I've made up a lovely little list of things that I would put into my beach bag and maybe give you some inspiration for yours!
If you've been reading my blog for awhile now, you already know a few things. I love to travel, and the latest place I've gotten to is Asheville North Carolina, and secondly, I love food. Visiting new places and trying local food is really fun for me. Looking for a fun place to eat while my family stayed and explored in Asheville, we found Tupelo Honey Cafe. This cafe was a recommendation by our concierge at the hotel we were at and it did not disappoint.
After driving 10 hours three weeks ago, my family and I found ourselves winding out of the beautiful green and blue mountains of North Carolina into the city of Asheville. We would be staying two days and three nights in the city. Our hotel was nestled in the hills, just down the road from the downtown area.
Hello everyone! I'm officially back from holiday, while I soaked in as much vitamin D as I could, I let this blog take a back seat. I honestly loved being off the internet, it was freeing not to have it with me and just have my nice camera, not to worry about if my phone was left behind and not checking what was happening every 15 minutes on social media.
So, where was I? May 31st through June 14th I was gone, and I stayed near Charleston South Carolina on Kiawah Island. Near the end of our trip, we ended up getting into a bit of car trouble, extending our holiday and downsizing our wallets. While waiting for news on our vehicle that would take us home (Charleston is 17 hours from Wisconsin), we had no choice but to make Lemonade from our Lemons. And we did. I made up a list about Pros and Cons of being "stuck" in a vacation that will seemingly never end.
Eating out at restaurants you said "We'll eat there next time" to
Seeing sights you would have had to come back to
Having more time off of work and school
Being in the sun longer
Finding new things to do
Not knowing when the vehicle will be done (we waited a long time around the shop)
Spending more money than you thought you would
Running out of Data for your phone
Getting behind on classes and work
Having to go back to Charleston and get the car and drive it back
Not starting the drive back at a reasonable time
We eventually left Charleston on Monday at 6pm Eastern, drove about 6 hours and 15 minutes and then an entire 11 hours on Tuesday. Which is why there wasn't a post Tuesday.
Even though we ran into some trouble, I really enjoyed being in the south, having more time to eat shrimp and grits, see the sights and spend time with my family. It may have been an unfortunate situation but I definitely feel like we all helped each other make lemonade from our lemons! We survived and made it home at last!
I cannot wait to share all of the photos from the trip with you guys! It might take a while but I hope you'll love it! I hope you're all having a great month. Has there ever been a time where you have had to make a bad situation good? Have you ever been stuck on vacation?
Can't wait to hear from you in the comments!
