In her mind she’s going to Carolina
A certain member of staff has been like a cat on a hot tin roof this week as she clears her desk in readiness for her holiday. Being a huge music fan, the words of James Taylor’s song have been playing on her mind for weeks, so much so that the older members of our staff are humming along to the tune now! She is off to the extraordinary Carolinas today – the unique mountains of the Southern Appalachians, The Great Smokey Mountains National Park, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Charleston and the captivating coast.
Her journey starts with a direct 9 hour flight from Gatwick to Charlotte, the largest city in North Carolina, and named after Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz who became queen consort to King George 111. She is then off to Boone in the western part of North Carolina, located in the Blue Ridge Mountains, before returning to Asheville. Her route then zig-zags through Bryson City and Charlotte and off to the coast. Take a trip to www.visitnc.com and www.discoversouthcarolina.com, the state tourism websites, which offer enormous amounts of information on both states.
We can’t wait to hear of her adventures, but if you can’t quite wait that long, visit our Carolinas page at http://www.experienceholidays.co.uk/index.asp?pgid=184 or call us on 01323 446550. Holidays to the USA are great value at the moment, with some good flight deals to be had, especially if you can avoid the school summer holidays.
Getting back to James Taylor, where is that CD?
