This is a photo essay put together from a road trip before our big move.  Our final trip around the United States before heading to live in the Kyrgyz Republic for two years would take us from New Orleans to Atlanta by way of Gulf Coast to the Keys and then back up the Atlantic Coast until we had to cut in to head towards Atlanta.  The first part of the trip was in New Orleans where we ate delicious food, toured the unique cemeteries and enjoyed the street music.

After leaving New Orleans, we made our way down the Gulf Coast before reaching the Keys.  Florida is an amazing state, we were able to enjoy canoeing through crystal-clear spring water in Central Florida and then the hot swamps of the Everglades where we fought off mosquitoes and dive-bombing carpenter bees (which I later learned were harmless.)

We escaped the mosquitos and headed towards Key West where we took an ferry to camp at Dry Tortugas National Park.

For our final destination, we drove to South Carolina to see Congaree National Park before moving on to Atlanta to catch our flight home.
