Adventuring In Atlanta.


As I’ve said many times before, I love to travel. I don’t get to do nearly enough of it. Traveling does require a decent amount of money most of the time and being a young college graduate working as a freelancer and serving coffee at Starbucks, I don’t exactly get to just get up and take a vacay very often. Except for yesterday…

I took a few days off of work to spend time with my mom who came to visit me in Nashville. We had a wonderful time chatting and shopping, and even taking a wine tasting at Arrington Vineyards. She left early on Sunday morning and I realized that I was still off of work until Thursday! So, I took the rare opportunity of having a chance to jet out of town (and by jet, I mean I drove my little white Mazda…) and go exploring in a city that I’ve never been to. I’d wanted to visit Atlanta for a long while and it’s just a short 4 hours southeast of Nashville, so I booked a hotel for Monday night and set my cruise control.

The drive, of course, was breathtaking. Chattanooga in the fall is a site that no one should miss. I made it to ATL at about 2pm on Monday and ventured around Midtown by foot until it got dark and then I left the city to find my hotel in the nearby Sandy Springs. Let me tell you, Hotwire.com is the bomb because I got a fantastic deal. I would have stayed 3 more nights in that place if time allowed! Anyway, I checked in and then found a Barnes & Noble to set up camp in with my laptop and worked on a few design projects until it was bedtime.

Tuesday was all about photographing downtown Atlanta. I covered Centennial Olympic Park, World of Coca-Cola, Georgia Aquarium, Woodruff Park, and a even a glimpse of a T.I. music video that my friend and I stumbled upon! After our fifteen minutes of fame, we ate at The Vortex in Little 5 Points and I had the greatest burger and fried zucchini EVER.

I saw as much as I possibly could in the day and half that I was there and it was enough to make me fall in love with Atlanta and want to go back to see what I didn’t have time for on this trip. It is a much bigger city than I imagined! I took about 400 photos, but I won’t be able to share them all with you. I’ve chosen my favorites for you and I hope they make you want to go visit GA!
