Ein unspektakulaerer Tag. Aufgeraeumt, geputzt, .... was man eben so machen muss, wenn man aus einer Wohnung auszieht. Allerdings hier viel angenehmer als in D, denn man kann auch einen Tisch oder ein Bett in der Hausmuell schmeissen. Danach waren wir ein bissle am Strand und jetzt geht es noch ein letztes Mal in die schoene Innenstadt von Charleston. Auf ein letztes ins Wreck zum Fried Green Tomatos essen, auf ein letzten Dink ins Voodoo, auf einen letzten Spritz auf dem Balkon. Bye bye Charleston ........... read more

Wir packen bzw. Antje packt und ich beschaeftige mich mit diesem Blog. Der Container scheint jetzt doch rechtzeitig zu kommen. Brian, Antjes Mann, hat uns zur Nervenberuhigung ein Fresspacket von Jason Delis kommen lassen. Erdbeer-, Schokoladenkuchen, Fruechte, Kekse usw. Gegen 3 pm war der Kontainer da. Irre wie dieser Typ das Ding abgeladen hat. Antje konnte ihn beruhigen, er dachte ich waere eine Nachbarin, die Fotos macht, weil sie Angst hat, dass er gegen ihr Auto faehrt. Als der POD dann stand haben wir beiden alle Kartons von der Garage und der Wohnung hinein gestapelt. Bei 34C im Schatten. Geschwitzt haben wir heute genug. Die Kollegen von Antje (Mischa, Victor, Herman & Silvio) kamen nach der Arbeit, um uns mit den Moebeln zu helfen. Mittlerweile ist 7:15 pm, das Ding ist fast voll, 2 schieben noch ... read more

Noch 3 Tage ..... Zwar wird es erst in 3 Tagen losgehen, aber erstens muessen wir diesen Blog noch vorher testen und zweitens hat diese Reise heute schon begonnen. Ich bin mit dem Greyhound Bus heute von Charlotte, North Carolina nach Columbia, South Carolina gefahren. Zum Glueck hat mich Antje dort abgeholt. Was waren da komische Leute an Bord! Zuerst gab es eine strenge Ansage vom Busfahrer was alles an Bord verboten ist. Alles, ausser flach atmen, laut schnarchen und essen. Waehrend der 1,5 h langen Fahrt wurde ein Herr ermahnt, weil er zu laut telefoniert hat. Ueber diesen Knatterlautsprecher. In Charleston angekommen, gab es erst einmal Prosecco. Aus Valdobiadene! Mittagessen bei "The Glass Onion" war fantastisch. Gute, hausgemachtes Suedstaatenessen mit Produkten aus der Region und ohne Hormone! Das heisst fast soviel wie "bio". Wir hatten ... read more

Strandliv på Isle of Palms var fint etter mye kjøring og mange opplevelser. Det ble med to turer før vår skandinaviske hud var godt stekt. Vi hadde nok ikke smurt oss så godt som vi burde ha gjort... Lars ser litt spraglete ut på ryggen og Guri hadde problemer med å sitte og å gå trapper i tre dager og er i ferd med å skifte hud på baksiden av lårene. Finfint :)... read more


Since I was off yesterday, I decided to continue on my journey of "being a tourist in my homestate." It looked like it was going to be a rainy day, so I decided to do something indoors. My journey took me to the Charleston Museum Before leaving the house, I printed a $1 off coupon from the Charleston Visitor's website and proceeded on my way. The Charleston Museum also plays host to two different houses. Both the Joseph Manigault House (right across the street) and the Heyward-Washington House (located further downtown) are maintained by the Charleston Museum. It costs $10 to get into each place, but they offer discounts if you tour more than one at a time. I decided to just go to the one across the street today. The Museum plus the house tour ... read more

We drove down to historic Charleston and began a walking tour. We visited the historic market area, viewed Rainbow Row and the Batteries that fired on Fort Sumter. Cannon and I had visited Fort Sumter last year with the Webelos so we didn't go out there. We arrived back at the car around 2PM and started driving to Savannah. didn't take us long to decide the 8 hour drive home sounded really nice. We hit the house at 10.30PM... read more

Good morning from Charleston. Yesterday we went out to Fort Sumter. It is a great tour and although I did it once before, it was worth it again. It is very interesting to see where the first shot of the Civil War was fired. After that we went over to market street. It is old and charming and we had lunch and then walked through the open air market. This structure dates back as well and was used as a market place pretty much as it is today. The difference being that you can get a new holster for your cell phone now and back then it was corn or rice or hand made baskets. It is at least partially sponsored now by the Daughters of the Confederacy. Next we walked over to the Slave Market. ... read more

Hot and humid is what we have here again. We are driving north but it isn't helping. We are in Charleston and went to town today. Another beautiful and historic city. It also dates back a ways. Even more than Savannah by about 90 years. We were at a plantation today that dates back to the late 1600's. It is called Magnolia. It was a rice plantation of about 2000 acres in it's day. It was and still is owned by the Drayton family. Something like 11 generations of them. It has not been a plantation since the Civil War. It is now known for it's gardens and historical tours. As you can see there are still a few of the slave quarters in the pictures. They were actually a little nicer than I thought. They ... read more

Therefore if the content seems a bit simple or obvious it is because it probably is not simple or obvious for the three year old's hearing about it!*** it is the night before my trip begins although in a way it has already begun. The floor is a mess with things to pack for I have waited until the last minute for this task! I am bringing a large yellow hiking backpack and a small green backpack (like a school bag). The large bag will be checked in at the airport and the smaller bag will be carried with me on the airplane. I will fly to Atlanta Georgia and wait an hour before flying to Madrid in ... read more
