Here’s the rough draft of the itinerary for my upcoming road trip leaving next week! Woo Hoo! I have now switched gears, yet again, from buying a tear drop camper, to buying a van, to camping, to Couchsurfing! If you’ve been a follower for a while you’ll recall my wonderful experience Couchsuring in Cape Town for four nights (read about it here)! I’m putting out a few requests and will have my tent and camping gear with me in my Honda Civic for occasional camping.
Although I’m occasionally a bit indecisive, this trip feels right and not just because of the fortune I opened in my cookie from take-out Chinese the other night…
I’m not finished researching the areas, so I don’t have all of the sights/activities listed I hope to see/do! I’d love to hear from you if you’ve been to any of these areas and have recommendations!
Drive 6 1/2 hours from Cincinnati to Asheville, N.C. and stay for 3 nights. Visit The Biltmore Estates and take the Gray Line Trolley (hop on/hop off) to see the sights around town.
Drive 7 1/2 hours to Destin Beach and stay 7 nights exploring the beautiful beaches in the area including Fort Walton, Pensacola, Rosemary and Panama City Beaches.
Drive 7 1/2 hours to St. Petersburg Beach/Tampa Bay area and stay 3 nights. I’ll probably be staying with a fellow blogger…the beautiful Zully from Spiritual World Traveler, if she’s in town. So exciting!
Drive a little over 4 hours to Miami/Ft. Lauderdale beaches and stay for 3 nights.
Drive almost 3 hours to Cape Coral (Ft. Myers Beach) and stay for a few weeks. Family members have a condo there that they generously allow me to use. I’ll be picking my husband up at the airport the day before Thanksgiving and he’ll stay for a week.
I hope to meet Betty from Heifer 12 x 12 on this trip also! I’m thinking on the way back will work better for her because she is visiting a different country every month this year and blogging about it! It’s amazing and she’s amazing!
