One of my favorite sensations in life is the anticipation that comes before a trip. In the South they call this feeling “journey proud”. Next month we are off to Charleston, SC to attend the wedding of dear friends, I have never been!
Journey proud indeed, I’m daydreaming about wandering the colonnade of Oak trees draped in Spanish Moss and brushing up on historical facts on architectural and garden tours. I just read Gone with the Wind so I’m fresh on my civil war history and feeling thankful to Sherman for not burning this beautiful city (darn Yankees).
I love to land in a new city with my research done, a few must see places and eateries to land on, but then wander the streets with a map to get steeped in the essence of the city.
Have you been to Charleston? Most of our time will be spent celebrating the happy couple so please give me your recommendations of where to eat, drink and wander. I don’t want to miss any gems.
But where else?
Sigh. Thanks in advance for your recommendations.
