Taking on the World, One City at a Time
Well lets see here, I am just an ol’ Southern girl that has a love of all things travel. Born in Charleston S.C., I am no stranger to tourism. Many folks travel down to the “Low Country” to get a taste of some good ol’ Southern Hospitality and sweet tea. Others travel to Charleston for it’s historic glow and wonder.
This blog will touch on some of my own travel, the good, the bad, and the I will never do that again type of stuff. In addition to that, you can expect to see a few travel deals posted here and there, along with some reviews from my closest friends and family.
