I just came from a road trip to the Southeast of USA. I had been dying (for years!) to visit this part of the country, and finally did it! As my friends know, I’d never catalog my trips as working, even if they could be labeled like that, because I love (triple love here) to see new places and interact with new people of different backgrounds.

The experience was amazing, thanks to my husband and lovely/well-behaved Mona (our dog). Adventure was the motto of the trip, including the sleeping arrangements we had throughout. Just let me give you an example, it was my first time staying in a Motel 6 (the only pet-friendly place available on many small towns) and staying – for the first time too – in a Kimpton Hotel…in between those two sites you can include some camping nights also done under the stars and next to a lake. (Note: The Brice in Savannah is a super charming hotel and I highly recommend it)

The trip was full of wonderful architectural and landscaping sightseeings that inspired me and delighted me continuously (e.g. Skyline Drive in Virginia), but also had A LOT of learning about the history of this country and the people involved to make these changes happen (e.g. Rosa Parks Museum in Montgomery).

I am looking forward to share with you today, and in the future, the beautiful images that captured the highlight of my experience in the South. Enjoy this first image showing the amazing ironwork found at the entrance of a house in Baltimore. The intricacy of the pattern is sublime.
