330 miles

We left Massachusetts the other day for a trip down South towards Connecticut, passing through small towns of Rhode Island, with final destination the quaint and absolutely beautiful seaside village of Mystic. Driving through miles and miles of forests, past meadows and sleepy towns, the occasional run on I-195, and finally checking in to a reasonably neat roadside motel for $49 a night, we got a little taste of what an extended road trip in America would feel like. A shame our jobs and projects will keep us mad busy this fall, otherwise we'd head right back out and to more southern climates in a second. So many states out there to explore..
