Postcard from the Georgia Highway

Postcard from the Georgia Highway

If Arizona surprised me with the diversity of its landscapes, Georgia simply stunned me with its beauty. Suddenly, I understood where all those country singers were coming from when they wax nostalgic about Georgia peaches, sitting on a front porch with a glass of sweet tea, beautiful open spaces.

Since we bypassed Georgia’s biggest city–Atlanta–in favor of a sorority history lesson in Macon and antebellum charm in Savannah, we also got to skip the big, impersonal freeways and strip malls. Instead, we wound through Georgia on state highways and Main Streets. Rolling green fields, endless blue skies, puffy white clouds, small towns of churches and city halls: this is what USA road trip dreams are made of.

    Gorgeous colours – in dire need of some white puffy clouds/blue sky/green grass over here in grey London!

  • It’s so beautiful! Look at all that green! I don’t think I’d ever want to live there, but I am just SO excited to travel down south!

  • Ah, home. Miss it.

    I love driving through Iowa on highway 34. So peaceful and green.

    I haven’t driven through Iowa much, but I do always love visiting my uncle in rural Nebraska–so gorgeous with those rows of corn and big blue skies!
