Atlanta Travelling…The Right Way

Baaahhh…this post was supposed to be finished a few weeks ago as we went to Atlanta at the end of Feb!  I’m still putting it up though as hopefully you’ll still find it interesting 🙂

Since moving to Alabama, we’ve been up to Atlanta every year to watch the Supercross at the Georgia Dome.  Atlanta is a 5 hour drive away for us and each time we’ve been, we have driven up on the Saturday morning and travelled home Sunday morning after we’ve visited Ikea.   This year, we wanted to experience Atlanta properly and do something more than just the supercross, so we decided to stay for 2 nights and do a few ‘touristy’ things.

On the Friday morning, we dropped the dogs off at their daycare place and started our journey.  After searching a few things to do on Pinterest, I found a Google Maps tour of The Walking Dead filming locations.  Quite a lot of them were grouped together and they were on our route anyway so we decided to go and have a look as we are quite big Walking Dead fans!  A couple of locations were just derelict buildings/streets and weren’t too exciting.  Then we managed to find Alexandria, some abandoned train tracks and the town that is Woodbury in the show!  If you’re a fan of the show you’ll definitely recognise some of these locations.  To top our experience off we ate in Norman Reedus’s restaurant and visited a themed gift shop, which had actual show props in the basement!

Sunday Sevens #24 – The Weekly Blog Series

I’m being a bit awkward this week (sorry!) as I have made a new Sunday Sevens image for your lovely sidebars!  I felt the other one wasn’t really appropriate as Sunday Sevens isn’t really a link party…. it is much more of a series!  I haven’t made it into a button though … it’s just an image that you can save and insert into your sidebar as an image widget and link back to this post 🙂

This image is 300 x 300 so you may need to scale it down to suit your widget/post!

If you are here for the first time… I’m going to give you the low down on the Sunday Sevens blog series.  Each week, we do things that don’t necessarily warrant a full blog post.  You may have made a nice meal, grabbed some bargains on a shopping trip, had a family day out, spotted some beautiful scenery or just done something you feel you want to share.  A Sunday Sevens blog post is the place to share those things.  You take 7 images from your week and post them every Sunday with a small description.  Tag your post using #sundaysevens on your blog and social media.  I also pin the posts onto the Sunday Sevens Pinterest Board.
