Savannah, Georgia will forever be one of the most classic, romantic, charming cities in the United States. Its proximity to the coast, as well as its colonial history, has provided it with a unique and gorgeous architectural style that has characterized the city over the last several centuries.
For us, Savannah means so much more...
Recently, we got married!
Because we like to think of ourselves as different, and we often take the road of “we’re going to do what we want to do even if it’s not the normal way of doing things,” we decided to embark on Phase 1 of a multi-series honeymoon. Phase 1 was relatively low-key and consisted of a road trip through Georgia, with the origin being the beautiful city of Savannah. Beyond Savannah, the road trip consisted of multiple strategically mapped points of interest that included a lot of hiking, camping, and overall ~adventure~
While I am a planner, and I enjoyed spending hours and hours planning this trip, I did not plan it down to every minute of every day, as we do enjoy the spontaneity that comes with visiting a new city, as well as the fact that we fully recognize that schedules do not always go as planned and it’s typically better to leave room for error than find ourselves in a bind.
Despite all my planning, research, and careful mapping, I somehow overlooked a very important fact. It was actually several facts that, when combined, create one quite uncomfortable situation. These facts were as follows:
Activities: Hiking, camping
Enough said. Savannah is hot, but even more than that, Savannah is HUMID. And when you try to do strenuous outdoor activities in August in an average Savannah climate, you find yourself a little bit uncomfortable.
Despite the heat, the sweat, the smokey campfires, and the general lack of access to a cool and comfortable climate (at least our campsite had showers!) we remained in positive spirits the entire trip, which was a good starting point for our marriage!

This little mini-series is going to feature some AMAZING, as well as little-known highlights that you would not even believe exist in Georgia, and you may even want to check them out for yourself!
I travel and then I write about it. I hope you enjoy my experiences, and can learn from my trial and errors!
