Deep South USA

We spent 3,5 weeks on a road-trip in Florida in April 2014. Camping in tent half the time and hotels and motels the rest. It was a great experience and the fact that it went so well with kids aged 1 and 3 really gave us the guts to try the round-the-world journey we are now planning. We plan to buy camping gear once again so that we can get close to nature and enjoy life in the open. Though we will of course stop by some of the favorite places from last time we plan to go further north this time along the Mexican Gulf before flying from New Orleans to New York and then home.

The plan is to enjoy the weather, the beach and experience the real South.
