Here is the story of my first road trip in the US.
Boris and I left Hagerstown, Maryland on saturday early in the morning for a 3 days road trip, passing by DC, then Delaware up to the South; we've taken the famous Chesapeake Bay bridge, known as the world's longest continuous over-water steel structure.
We arrived then at Virginia Beach, in the state of Virginia, where we went to visiting the totally deserted beach (april, cold weather...) before taking a full west direction up to the smoky mountains, where we arrived around 3 in the morning in a cosy little hostel, at Marion.
After a short night, we decided to climb the highest mountain of the East Coast: Mount Mitchell; awful weather, rain, wind and coldness, we weren't prepared for that; but we still went to the summmit after a 1200m elevation walk. The third and last day, we continued by car to the north along the mountains to Grand father mountains, where the scenic view is rknown as one of the most beautiful of the appalachians. Wonderful weather this time, and this 650m elevation walk has been awesome. We went then to several little lakes around before taking the road back to Hagerstown, we chose not to drive along the 81th to take advantage of those wonderful smaller roads
I received my very first camera and lense 2 days before the trip, so it explains partly the low quality of the different shoots. Next videos will be much better, as my experience is growing up.
Thanks to "trip advisor" for your incredible visiting data base! And thanks Boris of course for this awesome first experience!
Driving without knowing where you're gonna sleep, just stopping to look at the nice places you see on the road, discussing with people, with some good road trip songs loud in the car at the background, that's definitely the best way to travel! :)
