Big Eating in the Big Easy

Given the tremendous charm I hold for the South, it's a shock I hadn't visited New Orleans until now. The trip was to be punctuated with yet another half marathon, but the remains of a hacking cough derailed these plans. Nonetheless, we got a hefty taste of the town's culture & cuisine.

Southern Tour 2014: Atlanta, Savannah, Charleston

Before I realized how much love my SkyMiles account would end up getting this year, thanks to work travel and weekend getaways with friends, I planned a faux-road trip with one of my best friends. I’ve long had a love for the South - something about the charm, the balmy nights, the manners and tradition. I love feeling the history. So, we met in Atlanta, hopped into our Dodge Durango rental and headed for Savannah.
