North Carolina Travel Diary


Almost two weeks ago, I left on a trip to North Carolina. It was a loooooooong drive, but pretty fun. So I put together this travel diary for you all to hopefully enjoy.

DAY 1 > SUNDAY, 12/3/17

We left around 11:30 a.m., and I grabbed two bags of Hershey kisses before getting on the road.


(Don’t judge the blurriness, I was driving fast on a highway).


Β Then, we stopped in Metropolis, Illinois, to take pictures by the huge Super Man statue.

At 1:30, we stopped to eat at Shake and Steak for lunch. An hour later, we kept going.


Here are more blurry pictures of a lake, also taken while on the highway.

It was a looooooong drive, but at midnight we finally arrived at a hotel in Kodak, Tennessee.

DAY 2> MONDAY, 12/4/17

We left at around 9 a.m. to drive the remaining 3 hours to Boone, NC.


We got there and ate some lunch. Then we went straight to the Operation Christmas Child processing center.

I worked from 2:00-7:00 taping shoeboxes closed.

After dinner we went to the hotel, where I ate cookie dough and read the House of Hades.

DAY 3> TUESDAY, 12/4/17

We went shopping at some small shops in a little town this morning. I got a cute snowman candle, three Christmas ornaments, a glass pig decoration, and a pig stuffed animal. πŸ˜€

Afterwards, we went to the Processing Center again, from 4:00-8:30.

When we went to the hotel, I read more. πŸ™‚

DAY 4> WEDNESDAY, 12/5/17

Today we went straight to the Processing Center in the morning for the last time. After that, I went sightseeing and got some great photos.


We went to an overlook, and then a very small ‘waterfall’ in the woods. XD Hopefully you like the photos?

Next, we headed back towards the hotel in Tennessee the first night.

I like these photos. :0

Once we got to the hotel, I read and did a facemask. πŸ˜€

There you have it!

That’s the end of my travel diary! On Thursday I finished the drive home, but there are no pictures and all we did was sit in a bus all day. So I’ll end it here. πŸ™‚

Sorry for not posting for almost three weeks?? I’ve been pretty busy and this post took me a while to create.

Have a great weekend! What was your high and low of the week? Have you seen The Last Jedi?

      1. I taped and put them in the cartons! And were those steps taking them out of the cartons, checking for money, and then looking for inappropriate items?


    Also, YAY for going to beautiful Tennessee! I always like it when people go to my home state.
