On June 1, Mary and I went on a road trip down South. Headed to New Orleans, LA, we decided not to take the highway, but drive down the Natchez Trace Parkway instead. That turned out to be a great idea for several reasons. First, aside from a few bikers and cyclists, there was hardly any car traffic. Second, the scenery is astonishing for the entire 444 miles from Nashville to Natchez, Mississippi. And, finally, I got to travel some breathtaking bridges.
On May 3, I went to Asheville, North Carolina. Since I don’t have my car anymore, I took the bus. So, for the first time, I hopped on a Greyhound. We departed in Nashville more than half an hour late and drove to Knoxville, TN, where I fortunately got the connection to Asheville despite the delay. I arrived in Asheville around 9:40 in the evening.
A short trip to St. Louis, Missouri. This is how it could look like…
Last week, for the first time since I arrived in the U.S. in July, I left the beautiful State of Tennessee. I went to Boston, Massachusetts. Fortunately, I was invited there, and, I have to say, my hosts took very good care of me in terms of room and board.
