1,000 Places: The Heart of Charleston

One thing I'm learning about life is that it goes by so fast. Here I am, just a year away from having a college degree, yet I still feel like a sophomore in high school. And because life truly does fly by I'm realizing that I can't just sit around and wait for things to happen. I can't say "I'll do it later. I'll have time later." Because the truth of the matter is that none of us really know how much time we have, and I don't see a point in daydreaming if I never actually make an effort to make things happen.

That's why I'm going places and checking things off in this book. I know it may seem silly to a lot of people, but I want to travel the world. And I don't think there is anything wrong with starting now. That's pretty much the whole reason my mom and I decided to visit Charleston. It's just three hours from home, but we've never been, and that's just ridiculous. Not to mention it's so beautiful and the epitome of southern. (And I'm a very proud southerner, so I felt right at home being there.) And for a rather small city, there is so much to do. Tours, carriage rides, and plenty of places nearby to much is packed into such a small area. Charleston represents the east coast well.

As for the pictures, they were all taken in the two days we were there. The first day we mostly spent in the car touring around, and the second day was spent predominantly on Meeting Street and King Street checking out the local shops and the Charleston City Market.
