Road Trip: Orlando, Savannah, Charleston

I’ve never told you what my day job is, so I will now. I’m a Marketing Specialist for a Software Company. It’s been the only job I’ve had since college. One of the great perks is that we do retreats twice a year. Since we’re a semi-virtual company, it’s the easiest way for everyone to get together.

And, this January . . . it’s at Disney World. Yes, Disney World. I’m so excited! We’ve only been to Disney World one other time, January 2013.


My husband is coming for the last half of the week, and this is going to be our first real vacation since our honeymoon in July 2014. We’ve been a little busy since then: bought a house, sold a house, moved to Colorado, etc. So, we are really excited.

We have a plan . . .

Thursday & Friday Night: Disney World

Saturday Night: Savannah

Sunday & Monday: Charleston

We plan to drive from Orlando to Savannah to Charleston. And, we’ve both never been to Savannah or Charleston, so if you have any tips . . . send them our way! I’m so excited for our little getaway. It’s probably the cheapest way for us to do a little vacation, the only thing we will miss is our cutie lil puppy: Koda.


I’m so in love with Savannah and Charleston from pictures and stories from those that have been there . . . it’s somewhere I think I could live, yet I’ve never been there. So, this is our first chance!

Our goal this vacation is to stay on the cheap end. Being newly married, the money definitely isn’t flowing in like it could possibly in our 30s. So, I plan to do a recap of the cost of our trip and give you an overview of how we paid for it.

Please comment any tips you have for Charleston and Savannah! I’d love to hear them. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram to see all our vacation pictures!
