Day 1 - Arrived in Charleston, SC


We arrived in Charleston!
It was a very long and tiresome trip, first flying to Orlando and then driving 7 more hours to Charleston, but we made it. The roads were perfect and our rental car is great too so that helped. Maybe I'm more tired because in total I have slept something around 6 hours in the past 72 hours (party with friends, preparing luggage, little sleep in the airplane, etc). But after a good night of sleep I'm recharged!


The first impression of Charleston was that this was a small, somewhat rural city. But that was just the entrance. The actual city is incredible! Downtown is very well taken care of, there is a great marina with several boats nearby. Also, many students and apparently healthy people on the streets, walking and jogging. 



Here are a few shots:




Today we slept until 1:30pm, then went out to check out our bikes on the store and start purchasing the remaining items for the trip. We brought just two small backpacks each, and we have a long list of items to buy. We got most of what we needed, but tomorrow we have more shopping to do.

Time to rest now! =)

Cheers,
