On the Road Again

We made it through the first part of our big trip! After 10 hours and covering 573 miles on the road, we arrived to Nicole's house in Athens, GA. We were able to get everything we needed in both our cars and we even had enough room to see out all our mirrors and windows! Other than a portion of I-95 being closed, Nicole's phone being dead, random country Georgia roads, and driving in and out of rain, it was a rather uneventful trip.

It was funny to see the change in geography as we left south Florida and made our way up to Athens. We left the flat terrain and palm trees of Jupiter and made our way to the hills, tall pines, and sleepy old towns of Georgia. As we made it farther into Georgia, it felt like we were driving back in time through the quaint communities where the courthouses sit in the center of town. While ten hour drives are never much fun, it was cool to see the difference of culture and the style of living in rural Georgia compared to what we became used to in West Palm Beach.

As we spend the next few weeks with our families, the south Florida chapter of our journey has come to an end. It was an exciting final week of packing and seeing everyone we could and soaking up the time we were able to spend with great friends. There were many late nights and early mornings but it was completely worth it to get in a last few laughs with some amazing people who have been so supportive of us through this process and we look forward to when we'll be able to see them again.
