Savannah Squared

Savannah is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get. Or at least we didn’t. But the city is gorgeous and the pace slow, so it seemed like a perfect place to take a little bicycle tour.

Factor’s Walk, Savannah, Georgia

Factor’s Walk is a hidden alleyway is where cotton merchants, called factors, transacted their business in the days when cotton was king.

Time Traveling with the Amish

Where Indiana meets Michigan, Michiana as it’s known, time travel is possible. Here in the Land o’ Goshen, the Amish have settled and continue a lifestyle reminiscent of hundreds of years ago, placing merit on humility and hard work.

We didn’t even know the words past “Galveston, Oh Galveston,” but that didn’t stop the tape loop in our craniums. Once we found our campground and parked BAMF, we got to Googling and found a copy of the song to relieve our brains. Thank you “The Glen Campbell Good Time Hour” YouTube page!

Jimmy Webb wrote the song during a visit to the island, conjuring up the story – a Spanish-American War soldier dreaming of his girl back home in Galveston – while sitting… CONTINUE READING >>
