Ha ha ha, cheesy title. But, the next stop on our road trip was Knoxville, Tennessee!! We started the day, driving from 2pm (I think) until 9:30pm. Traveling that far was through the mountains, traffic, and stopping for dinner. Shout out to McDonald’s for being at literally every. single. exit. That night, we stayed in Knoxville, TN. Let me tell you, those sunsets didn’t disappoint. The sky was absolutely beautiful. My family and I do this weird thing, where when we go over state lines, we hold our breath. (really, I don’t know why, I was just told and I’ve done it ever since. Does your family do any thing like that?) Well, in order to get a picture of the Tennessee sign, I missed holding my breath. Man, I was so mad! First time into a new state and I didn’t hold my breath. Yes, I’ve lived next to TN all of my life, yet I’ve never been. Crazy, right? My family just goes East rather than West. It was really nice for a change.
The next day, we left Knoxville and headed to Nashville. You always hear about Nashville, country music hometown, the place where all musicians dreams come true. Well, I’ve never been; and as this is a road trip with no set destination, Nashville, Tennessee was the next stop to go. Four hours later, we get to Nashville. It was such a beautiful day to visit. It took us no time to find parking and we just walked around the area. It was so funny because people are riding around on trolley looking things and peddling and listening to music. It was so fun to watch. The atmosphere is really enjoyable, it makes you want to stay there for such a long time.After about an hour of walking around, looking at shops, and occasionally listening to drunk people sing Shania Twain, we left again. I do wish we stayed longer but this trip was on a time limit, we had to be back home on Sunday evening to get ready for school and work the next day.
So after driving those four hours to get from Knoxville to Nashville, we headed back to Asheville, NC. Kyle and I were definitely travelers this past weekend. And like I said in my previous blog, I didn’t mind it one bit. Besides, he thankfully didn’t leave me on the side of the road somewhere, ha! kidding. (whenever I get excited or nervous, I talk way too much. And let me tell you, I was soo excited on this trip.) It was kinda crazy how we drove that long to see Nashville, yet, it was perfect! We thought about staying in Nashville, but we really didn’t want to make that seven hour trip back home. I will definitely be going back to Nashville, as the atmosphere was just freaking awesome! But after driving back into NC, we ended up in Asheville! We only had to pull over on the side of the road, ONCE! Which surprised me because I expected something to go wrong at least twice. (ha) It wasn’t about the places we went or how long we stayed, we had such a blast just driving! Thanks so much for reading, check out my next post for what we did the next day. Have a great rest of the week and thanks for tagging along with me! Let me know what your favorite place to travel is!!
