savannah: part 1

I'm baaaaccck! Well, I've been back since Wednesday, but I've been crazy busy since then. This post begins the Savannah posts. This one will be sightseeing then I have three outfit posts as well. This post is extremely picture heavy.

 I booked the trip through Priceline and they got our flight information for the trip down there ALL messed up. Our itinerary said United Airlines, but we were unable to check in once we got there. The airline had no record of us. They don't even fly to Charlotte (where our connecting flight was)! We were freaking out. Some kind woman told us that US Air was where we wanted to be, since United and US have something called "code shares". Which apparently means they make up flight numbers. We managed to get on the right flight in plenty of time, though.

We had a quick stop off in Charlotte then a quick flight to Savannah. We got there too early to check into our hotel, so they held our luggage for us while we explored the city. We walked along the river and then decided to take a trolley tour so we'd be more familiar with the town.

It's just sooo beautiful there! The architecture is amazing. The squares speckled throughout the city are gorgeous, with the live oaks and Spanish moss everywhere. We spent most of our time just strolling around, taking it all in. And eating.

After walking around for awhile and our trolley tour, we were exhausted and desperate for a nap. Plus it was super hot the whole time we were there, so we were sweaty messes. So we headed back to the hotel where thankfully we were able to get into our room.

We napped, changed, and headed out for dinner. We ate at the Moon River Brewing Company and got our first to-go cups. As long as you're over 21, you can wander around Savannah with booze in plastic cups. AMAZING.

After dinner we wandered back to the hotel and just sat drinking and chatting at the hotel bar and we were in bed by 10:30. We were exhausted, since we'd had to get up at 3am to make our 6am flight.

We stayed at the Avia Savannah, which I would recommend. It was steps from City Market and River Street, and literally right across from Paula Deen's restaurant. It was so easy to get anywhere we wanted to be. The hotel staff was super friendly and helpful, and they leave Andes mints on your pillow at night. SOLD.

Stay tuned for many more parts to come! I am milking this trip for all it was worth! ;)
