One thing we’ve sort of mastered in our year of travel is the use of public transportation. I say... sort of... because everywhere we go it’s sort of the same and sort of different enough that it can be confusing.
Union Station in Washington, DC is easily my favorite train station. It is not only nice but it’s in a great location next to the United States Capital. There is something about coming out of the front doors and see the Capital, Supreme Court, etc.
Tips: It’s cheaper to fly into Baltimore than DC. It’s also cheaper to take the train instead of an Uber.
During our travels, we’ve learned to take lots of pictures of where we parked at the airport. Trust us, in a week you won’t remember.
I try to post our activities in the order of when they happened because the whole point of this blog is to help me remember what we did and when we did it. Occasionally, a post gets lost or in this case hung up in my “drafts”. We stopped by the World’s Largest Truck Stop on our way home from the Illinois - Iowa Football game. I got gas. Shannon got candy. Everyone was happy.
I left my car in Paducah, Kentucky when Ashton and I returned from Nashville. Shannon was worried it would disappear, but I guess we got lucky.
Our hotel in Nashville was located right across the street from the Parthenon and directly in front of the Vanderbilt football stadium. Location, location, location.
I'm Michael Smith and I hope to have a very productive midlife crisis over the next 500 days. Some people buy a sports car, I'm going bowling.
