So I am back from my trip to Atlanta, Savannah, and Tybee Island. The trip was amazing. There is so much to tell and so many photographs to share that I don't even know where to start. So bare with me if this is all haphazard.
My trip started with some adventures. We had an early morning flight out of Austin and had to rush to the airport. When we arrived there, the flight was delayed. So we waited. And waited. My hubby and son1 took turns standing in a line to get info about the flight. They were in the line for 3 hours.
Anyways. The plane finally took off at about 1:00 pm in the afternoon. We reached Atlanta at about 4:30. In Atlanta we did not get our bags. We had to stand in some more lines and were told that our bags were going to arrive at 7:00 pm. So we waited some more. It wasn't a good start to the vacation.
Once we got our bags, we went to the car rental place, rented a car and drove down to Tybee Island where we had our hotel reservations. By the time we reached Tybee Island, it was 1:00 AM and we were all exhausted. But we had rented a condo/flat. So there was no room service, no decent drinking water, no food. So we freshened up a bit and got back in the car. And went to one of the few places that was open. A bar.
My boys ate and I told the waitress that I was on a "de-stress/liquid" diet. So I chugged down a couple of martinis. There may have been more but I wasn't driving and who the heck was counting? We ate/drank and went back to the condo and all of us just crashed.
We left our home in Austin at about 5:00 AM and by the time we slept, it was about 3:00 AM. Which means that we were up for almost 24 hours.
That was our day 1 of the trip. And it got all better after that.
So have you had any interesting adventures while travelling? I am all ears!
