These past three months have flown by at an almost breakneck pace. Savannah has been a gracious, welcoming, wild and unforgettable host to us, and we couldn’t have hoped to choose a better city.
After spending almost a decade in Europe, I had been really excited to get back to the USA, and Juergen couldn’t wait to unleash his camera on one of our country’s most photogenic cities. We’ve hardly rested since pulling up to our temporary house at the beginning of November. Man, that seems like last week.
But when I think back on all the things we’ve done, my head starts to pound! Twenty-two squares, late-night partying on River Street and at Pinkie Masters, loads of day trips, kayaking on Tybee, eating eating eating. Let alone the time spent with family and friends, both old and new. My folks came down for Thanksgiving, we went home to Ohio for Christmas and, tomorrow we’re going again to meet our days-old nephew Frederick.
A couple locals have asked us what we’ll remember most about Savannah, and Juergen and I are in total agreement. The Victorian district is lovely, the surrounding areas are stunning and the history of the city is fascinating. But what we’ll never forget are the people here. The insane, hilarious and ultimately friendly people of Savannah are far and away its best quality. We’ve never been so entertained and welcomed by a city’s residents.
Next stop Buenos Aires. We hope you all continue to follow us, and explore that massive metropolis through our eyes. We’re taking a couple weeks break to arrive and get settled, but will be blogging again by February 7th (though we’ll continue our constant barrage of Twittering!) If you’d like, you can keep in touch with us via Facebook, Twitter, comments or email. And thanks again for reading.
