“This is weird” was a common phrase I have used whilst being in the US as it was the first time I’ve been to this part across the Atlantic and it’s different to the UK. Savannah may be a random place to visit but I was there for my best friend’s wedding. She was getting married on Tybee Island.
The first thing I had noticed was the Southern American accent and how everyone says “ya’ll” and “sir/ma’am”. Whatever I had seen in films or tv series actually did portray what I saw whilst in real life. This included the scenery, housing, roads, habits etc. It’s the little things that made me feel like an “American” for example, going to the liquor store and seeing them bag the alcohol into paper bags. The cashier even heard me say “I feel like an American” and she laughed. It’s things like this that puts a smile on my face.
I did explore Savannah however due to the tight schedule, I wasn’t able to fully explore both Savannah and Tybee Island. Then again, I did enjoy chilling in the hot tub and swimming pool in the wedding house in Tybee and had taken advantage of this. I was able to get some colour, and now, I’m tanned and burnt at the same time. I am definitely missing the bikini life right now.
The wedding was beautiful, the dress, the venue, everything. I definitely was in tears throughout the day and night and a mop and bucket was needed! I’m very happy and very proud of her. Proud of what she’s been doing and have achieved. Forever a best friend.
I would definitely visit again when I have the spare time to properly explore both locations and many more around the surrounding areas.
Here are some photos I had taken throughout my journey:
