This week we’ve been free-wheeling up the East Coast. Here’s a look at our East Coast USA Roadtrip so far! We’re on the final leg of our almighty American summer road trip adventure. We shall be flying out from New York in a little under a week making our way to Berlin. The past week has been a whirlwind of laughter, fishing, coffee, torrential rain, history, art, inspiration and loveliness. Here are a few snaps and a quick look at what we’ve been up to this week.1. Charleston, South Carolina: Our week started in the picturesque Charleston. We strolled around looking at the pretty colonial style colourful buildings, laid next to the fountain in the heat, watched thousands of hermit crabs on the sea shore and absorbed the atmosphere.
2. Myrtle Beach, South Carolina: Myrtle Beach is a classic seaside tourist town with plenty of bright lights and novelty beach towels. We played crazy miniature golf aka ‘putt putt’ like Kenny Powers from our favourite HBO series East Bound & Down, messed around at the fair, drank milkshakes at Johnny Rockets and rocked out at the one and only Kiss Coffeehouse. Laying on the beach at night listening to the waves lap against the shore has to be one of the greatest things to do.3. Beaufort, North Carolina: The coolest small town, we drank at a great little Fairtrade Coffee Shop, went fishing and caught loads of fish and hung out with lovely friends.
4. Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia: A historic town where the war of independence took place. The motto of Colonial Williamsburg is “The future may learn from the past” which I believe to be true. We went on a guided tour with our new friend William and learned all about Americas fight for independence.
5. Washington DC: WOW! We had the almighty time in Washington. The National Art Gallery was phenomenal, I saw paintings I grew up looking at postcards of and never imagined I’d see in real life, filled an entire notepad with ideas and spent a little too much mullah in the gift shop (on books). I saw the Declaration Of Independence at the American Archive and read stories of great American citizens. I’ve been taking so many photographs, making notes and gathering inspiration, getting ready to compile my Road Trip Photo book!
