Day 11

Raleigh - Savannah

Day 11: Raleigh - Savannah (via Charleston)

-9+ Hours of travelling on a bus (this sounds horrible but to be honest it goes quick, we sleep....ALOT, play games, watch movies and yeah thats about the extent you can do on a bus!)
-Charleston (Beautiful College town where we saw all the Kappa, Delta etc Sorority's surrounding the college, uni kids everywhere and had a great cheap lunch....thenn back on the bus!!)
-Pirate House (this is the first building in Savannah and it was where the pirates went to sleep, drink and all other things pirates do! This is where we went to dinner with our group and is apparently one of the best places to eat in the USA....my salmon was pretttyyy yummy! The cool thing about this place was your drinks came in skull cups, there was a hot Johnny Depp pirate look alike and they still had the passages that left from the building went underground and camne out at the boats, this was because men who were in there having a drink, pirates would spike their drinks which put them to sleep and carry them onto the boat and they would wake the next day as a pirate!! this was the pirates trusty recruitment system!!)
-Club 101 (renowned kareoke gay bar of Savannah.....need I say more.....good times were had, bad chords were heard)

Day 12: Savannah - St. Augustine

- Old Trolley Tour (this was a trolley which was on wheels that took us round Savannah for an hour and a half telling us about all the sites, this was pretty cool as a lot of the buildings were from the movie we watched 'Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil' and alot of the houses are haunted and people rarely stay longer than 2 years in some of the older buildings as they cant put up with the paranormal activity and alot of building are put on the left to decay list as everytime they try and renovate the bulidings people get thrown down stairs etc.....creeepppyyy, this town was really eerie!!)
-Group Photo (Forsyth Square Foutain is where we stopped quickly to have a professional take a photo of our contiki group, which we will get a copy of later on)

We then jumped back on the bus and headed to St.Augustines which is the most haunted town in all of America where we are going out to dinner and then going on a ghost tour where we are told you are sure to see stuff....yeah im packing myself as we all know im a big wimp!!
The weather is getting warmer, and the light switches are still back to front where ever you go, I miss home a bit this going from hotel to hotel every day takes its toll coz you never really get settled in and barely feel like you get to see the place you stop at apart from dinner, but tomorrow is cocoa beach and I am looking forward to some warm weather!! Hi to everyone back home,...you guys better be looking after my dog! MUCH LOVE!
