is how John Cusack describes Savannah in 'Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil'. Having never seen Gone With the Wind, nor taken Mescaline, I can't verify this statement. But I can confirm that Savannah is a pretty town, a colonial relic spared by the Union troops in the Civil War at a time when they were burning every city they took. My journey here was fine, apart from my panic attack when I thought I saw my hotel a good 45 minutes before we got to the city. False alarm luckily. I'm still 15 minutes from the historic downtown region, but I'm also staying in a gorgeous hotel suite, nearly as big as my flat. Today I got the bus into town which was a mission in itself, after my bus driver first stopped ... read more

Fabienne, Philippe, Adrien et Louis sont venus pour une semaine de vacances chez nous. Cette semaine coincidait avec une semaine de travail de Jean-Philippe à Atlanta. Nous sommes donc tous partis pour le week-end à Savannah (bord de mer) où le soleil n'a pas daigné se montrer :( Mais nous avons bien profité de nos retrouvailles ! De retour chez nous, nous avons fait une promenade dans les Apalaches, fêté Halloween, du shopping, des jeux avec les enfants,... Il reste encore tant à faire... Les enfants ont beaucoup grandi depuis la dernière fois que nous les avions vus ! ... read more

As soon as we left D.C. and entered Virginia, confederate flags started appearing on cars and homes, indicating we had officially made it into the south. As a "coloured" car, Shazza was a bit concerned about coming down here, after hearing the history about how the civil war was waged primarily over the south's right to use black slave-labour. After some reassurance, we drove west to the Skyline Trail and Blue Ridge Parkway, both renowned as scenic drives to take in "Fall" to see the coloured leaves. Despite the dry season, the stories of amazing colours were true, with a full range from green through to fire-red on both sides of the road. It was surreal driving along in the evening, as the sunset lit the whole forest with a warm glow, despite the chilly air ... read more

Went out with Mke to a bar named Loco were his band Turtle Folk is performing. Grab burger and Guinness and then hung around for setup and sound check. It stange how much I enjoy wraping and organizing wires. Not to chatty because there was some some things going on in New England but it was great to just hang out and listened. The fun came at the end of the night during break down the was fight going on outside. I stayed in side and wrapped cables all I saw was people going in and out. In the process of helping to pack up cables I figured out a new rating system for cables. There were three categories cables need to withstand 1. Booze 2. Cigaretts 3. Stupid Hot Groupie who stand on them. ... read more

The Deep South TourDaniel Anderson Well it's been quite a while since our last entry, things have been pretty busy but we haven't done any real major traveling. I thought I would use this entry to fill everyone one in on our most recent comings and goings and what we have been up to. It will mostly be to show some of the photos we have taken and I won't bore you with big long winded descriptions of our trip. I recently finished my first semester of Uni which actually went really well. I was quite surprised at the marks I received which were pretty good, but it just goes to show what you can achieve when you actually do some study rather than get on the turps with your Army mates all the time.

After leaving Orlando, we headed to Savannah GA because we had heard it was a neat, historic place to check out. We only had a couple days there because we had a hard time finding people on couchsurfing.com to stay with. Wes caught a cold of some sort in Orlando and was really starting to feel sick on our first full day in Savannah, so we rode our bikes into town and walked around a bit. Savannah looks a lot like New Orleans, with the huge trees lining the streets, covered in moss. We went down by the river into this sort of cheesy tourist area, wandered around downtown a little, went to the cemetery, and stopped in the park for a while. But at that point Wes was feeling pretty sick and had a ... read more

Savannah PierceGood Morning .. Good Beautiful Morning! I spent yesterday afternoon and into the night in Savannah Georgia and had the best time since South Beach. The four days of cool cloudy weather cleared up and the sun shined down on the gorgeous green city squares. A few days ago I cleaned up and out of the Piratehaus Inn in Saint Augustine, finished my pirate pancakes and completed one more blog, I chatted with Conrad about the Inn and the old city. On my way out he surprisingly gave me no charge for staying at the Inn because i was a "couch surfer" and I was so grateful. Conrad Matt and Elaine are such fine people, very welcoming, caring, and extremely nice and I will forever thank them for their hospitality. I took a last walk ... read more

Här fanns ocksÃ¥ den berömda spanska mossan och fina hus. Överallt fanns ocksÃ¥ sk. Squares - mindre parker mitt i stan. Mycket charmigt - fÃ¥r förhoppningsvis bilder frÃ¥n Nilo snart & dÃ¥ fÃ¥r ni se mer. ... read more

Ok, so I didn’t see any of the sights associated with the book but the title is just too good to pass up. I’ll have to read it again now that I’ve been to Savannah. Somewhere outside of Charleston, the MINI reaches 4,000 miles on the trip. Woohoo! No problems until we get to Savannah. We stay in a flat in a historic building on Lafayette Square—great location with beautiful mid-1800s homes and a church surrounding the square. The back of the inn has parking so I drive down the alley and pull into the parking space but the MINI gets stuck. There’s a dip in grade between the alley and the parking space and the MINI is too low to make it through. Cathy gets out of the car and notices a plastic thing ... read more
