When I was growing up, we’d sometimes get in the car on a pretty Saturday and just drive around the state — checking out famous and not-so-famous sites, probably having cones at a Dairy Queen somewhere. So when it came to the anniversary of losing Dad, rather than spending the day at home, I jumped in the car and did my own road trip. I started with breakfast (banana and caramel waffles and hot chocolate) at @41northcoffee in Wendell, then headed to Wilson for the @whirligigpark. (Dad liked to make whirligigs, though nothing as elaborate as these.) It was cold and starting to rain so I didn’t hang around as long as I would have on a warmer day. And then I just let the car go wherever the notion took me, including a stop at a flea market where I almost bought some jams until I saw their stack of MAGA hats and no effing thank you. Making my way back to Raleigh, I had lunch at Jordana’s Pizzeria in Benson — eggplant rollatini, for Dad, who loved eggplant parm. #roadtrip#daytrip#wendellnc#wilsonnc#bensonnc#waffles#whirligig#whirligigpark#jordanaspizzeria#eggplantrollatini 2/17/19
This time last weekend we were heading to dinner after a long day of walking, subway riding and Louis Vuitton shopping. .
It was freezing and windy but that didn't stop us! It was nice having a full day with the girls in the city. Lots of laughs and lots of memories made!
Take me back! ---when its warmer 😂
I first had the harebrained idea to rent a car and drive around Spain when our airline sent me a 50% off rentals discount a month after we spontaneously booked our flights. At the time, we had grand ideas of driving as far south as Cordoba to see the famous mosque (Erin’s suggestion) or east to Bordeaux, France for the experience of driving across the border (with the added bonus of my favorite region of French wine, clearly my idea.) However, after only one day of rest - and a busy one at that - between our 30 hour travel epic and our excursion day, we decided to stick a little closer to “home.” I had read nothing but good things about San Sebastian and as it was merely a three hour drive away, we chose that as our next adventure.
And my was it ever an adventure to get there, even more to get back!

If you find yourself tiring of the beach scene in Mykonos (which is surprisingly hard to), or you’re a history buff and want to “walk among the gods”, you’ll want to take the 45 min boat ride over to the island of Delos. The presumed birthplace of Apollo (god of the sun in Greek mythology), this #unesco site was once a very prosperous trading port in the Aegean. Remnants of the city are vast, ranging from the watchdogs who guard the city (3rd pic), to housing structures, bath houses, and even Apollo’s temple at the top of the hill. Definitely a worth while day trip! (Taken September 2012) 👍🏻🥰
Are you a lover of Greek mythology? What’s your favorite saga? 🤔
we followed our hearts and it led us to the airport 🛫 what a wonderful daytrip yesterday to Nice 🇫🇷
