      Nashville Parthenon

      May 28, 2022 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 20 °C

      I never realised this place even existed. A full size replica of the Ancient Greek temple to Athena, the Parthenon.
      Originally built for Tennessee's 1897 Centennial Exposition, this replica of the Parthenon in Athens, Greece serves as a monument to what is considered the pinnacle of classical architecture. The plaster replicas of the Parthenon Marbles found in the Naos are direct casts of the original sculptures, which adorned the pediments of the Athenian Parthenon dating back to 438 B.C. The originals of these powerful fragments are housed in the British Museum in London. Check it out;

      Nashville TN

      May 28, 2022 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

      Well Nashville turned out be a total disaster. We found it to probably be the most non RV friendly town. There was absolutely nowhere that you were allowed to park an RV, even for a few hours. On occasions they might let you park in one of the backlots of the Stadium, but not today, a massive concert was being setup for and no room for us poor Aussies. All the RV parks were fully booked out due to the concert and of course Memorial Day long weekend. Just bad luck I guess.Read more

      Første dag i Nashville

      June 19, 2022 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 15 °C

      Jamen så godmorgen Dennis Jensen kl. 04.00😵‍💫 Han er jo som et barn til juleaften. Nåh vi fik te og kaffe og dimsede lidt med telefonerne. Spiste lidt og tog et dejligt bad(uden toilet vognen, som vi har kørt med i 5 uger det hjemme)
      Kl. 7 ud og se byen vågne på gå ben. Dejlig temperatur på ca. 20 grader. Vi spiste morgenmad på en gammel bar/restaurant.
      Det er vores den røde bil🚘
      Efter en lille lur fra 10-11😆 kørte vi ud til et maleri på en væg som Dennis skulle se og tage billeder af😉 Bilen er fin👍🏻
      Eftermiddag på gå ben rundt i byen- det er helt vildt, der er bare mage mennesker og musik og larm.
      Hjem igen og så tog vi en uber til et musik sted (Blue Bird cafe) Vi havde købt billetter til det legendarisk sted.
      Hyggelig musik og lidt mad. Det var kun 2 timer, så kom næste hold og vi blev”smidt ud”. Uber tilbage igen og så gik vi i byen - pyha det var en vild aften😅 se bl.a video.

      Sidste dag i Nashville

      June 21, 2022 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 35 °C

      Godmorgen kl. 6. Vi gik en lille morgentur på 3 km. Det var allerede varmt. Hjem i bad og afsted til country Music hall of Fame. Der var dejlig Air con og tilsidst frøs vi lidt. Dennis købte endnu en T-Shirt😂 Måske den 7.🤪 Vi købte også 3 plakater til stuen.
      På vej hjem spiste vi lidt frokost. Hjemme slappede vi lidt og jeg vaskede tøj, bare fordi jeg ku😉 så fik vi da lige 3-4 par rene underbukser mere, en kjole og er par shorts. Det er ikke til at vide hvornår vi kan vaske igen.
      Pludselig virkede Air con ikke og det går bare ikke når det er 38 grader udenfor🥵 Så vi måtte tilkalde hjælp.
      Kl. 16.30 fik vi den skøre ide at gå de 4 km. ud til “The Local” (en bar vi måtte se og høre musik på) det var forsat 37 grader og det var en bask omgang🥵
      På baren fik vi dejlig IPA øl og en burger og god musik. Vi vat virkelig fornuftige og tog en uber hjem kl. 20.30. Vores Air con var fixet og der var koldt i ligheden 🥶😝 Jeg syntes det var skønt - Dennis not so much😉

      En god mandag

      June 20, 2022 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 33 °C

      Vi vågnede kl. 6 med lidt for meget hovedpine🥴 så vi tog et par piller og sov heldigvis 3 timer mere😴
      Vi tog det helt roligt og drog ud i Nashville ved 12 tiden. Vi gik ca. en halv time ud for at se det sted vi havde billetter til om aftenen “The listeling room”
      På vej tilbage fik vi noget frokost og derefter så vi The Rayman. Legendarisk sted for country musik🤠🎸 Derefter endnu lidt afslapning på hotellet. Det er bare for varmt til at være udendørs🥵
      Afsted ud og spise en burger på Hard Rock. (Ikke særligt godt🫤) og så hen til “the listening room” Det var til gengæld hyggeligt. Dejlig musik, de havde dog givet den lidt for meget gas med Air con🥶
      Og fornuftige som vi er 😇 Gik vi hjem og sov allerede kl. 23😉

      Nashville

      November 1, 2022 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

      I slept like a baby and got up knowing that we’d have breakfast in the hotel. Which is always a great thing because you can always come back the room and brush your teeth and get ready without any pressure.
      The plan today was simple: walk to Downtown Nashville.
      It was a nice car break since we’ve been driving for 2 days.
      The hotel was in front of Nissan Stadium, home of the Tennessee Titans (the team I hate the most with the Pittsburgh Steelers) and you have to cross the The John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge  get to this amazing city.

      First stop: Country Music Hall of Fame.

      Now, country music is a beautiful thing, it uses amazing instruments like the banjo and has over the top artists like Jerry Lee Lewis or Elvis. Now, these personalities with money really went all in, and you can see it when you’re standing in front of the clothes they used to wear on stage, or the crazy cars they bought.
      It’s something I just had to see for myself and I’m glad I went. So many great songs that I still haven’t heard, imagine that, there’s always something more to learn. This is what being alive is all about.

      The coolest part of the museum is the last part, where you enter a sort of temple, called a rotunda, where all the plaques of the inductees are. And although he resemblance of the plaques is a bit dodgy, the place is peaceful and has a magnificent vibe to it.

      Dani had a bit of a rash that was suddenly acting up, we didn’t know if it was a bed bug attack or some kind of allergy, but after the Hall of Fame we needed to do 2 things: eat and go to a Walgreens.

      As we were walking we got stopped by a woman that wanted to sell us a subscription to an NGO, and it turned out she was Spanish. She gave us suggestions on where to eat and where to listen to some music, so it was a very useful conversation.

      Nashville is all about spicy chicken, and there’s tons of options to check this meal off your bucket list. Our pick was Prince’s Hot Chicken located at the Fifth and Broadway mall that had amazing downtown views.

      Now, how to order spicy chicken? As a Mexican human, I’ll always believe that I can handle more spicy food than I can really handle, it’s just Mexican ego I guess. Dani made up her mind fast, NO SPICEY CHICKEN.
      I didn’t know what to get, because there were several spice “hotness” levels. Luckily for me, the cashier was from El Salvador, and I quickly used my Latin-American connection to ask her.. what do I get?
      Stay away from the last 2, you won’t be able to take them, they are not natural, she said.
      Glad I listened.
      I’ll never understand the pleasure of feeling like your tongue is going to fall off, it just ruins your meal, and I almost did but the level of spice I picked wasn’t that bad, although it wasn’t great either. Just enough for me.

      Something really cool about Nashville and the South in general is that you suddenly see plaques that contain info about different civil rights moment that happened right there. It turns out that the Walgreens where Dani bought itch cream was one of the first places in Nashville that got boycotted by black people because of segregation, and one of the first places to accept black people as well.

      After getting the cream Dani suggested we should chill in the hotel before heading back downtown to listen to some music and I agreed, I was kind of tired and wanted to take a nap. When you have a nice hotel room, you have to seize the opportunity, you never know when you’re gonna sleep on a comfortable bed again!

      When I woke up we decided to go back and listen hit some Honky Tonks!
      Nashville completely changes at night. All the neon lights are on and there’s amazing signs everywhere, I felt like a bug going towards the light, I was mesmerised.
      First stop: Tootsies Orchid Lounge.

      We ordered some drinks and listened to the band, which is what you’re supposed to do, the problem was that, drinks are expensive and you have to tip the band. So, each time you entered a bar you spent at least 20 bucks just to chill and listen to some music. It doesn’t sound as much but imagine if you switch bars every hour or so? Suddenly being patient sounds like a great plan, right?

      We were looking for a band that played the classics, some Dolly Parton or Johnny Cash, and the band at Tootsies wasn’t like that.
      So we decided to switch places.

      The cool thing is, that as you walk you listened to the bands inside the bars and if you like one, you just walk inside and get a beer.

      Suddenly, I spotted a band that had a violin and a classical bass on stage, and I told Dani, this is the place.

      We ordered another round of drinks and just chilled there until we had enough. You could say that we got what we wanted from this beautiful city. Happy and tired we walked back to the hotel, what else can you ask for?

      Morgens im Royal Relax Inn in St. Louis ausgecheckt und gleich in Cansville die erste Rast. Dort gab es einen interessanten Trampelmarkt. Im Motel Somatel Nashville Airport haben wir abends eingecheckt. Gleich in der Nähe haben wir eine Bikerkneipe gefunden. Hier in Nashville war Johnny Cash zu Hause und es gibt die Countrymusic Hall of Fame. Es gibt auch einige historische Musikstudios.

      Lang rejsedag.

      June 18, 2022 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 22 °C

      Afgang 3.45😵‍💫 Albert og Signe kørte os i lufthavnen. 1 time i kø for indtjek og 45 min. i security. Godt vi var der næsten 3 timer før. 2 timers fly til London med en lille lur på 15 minutter😴
      6 timers vandren rundt i Heathrow - spiste en sandwich og lidt slik😉 Vi ville ikke sidde for meget fordi vi jo skulle flyve 9 timer.
      Flyet var forsinket ved afgang og vi sad i flyet i en time - vi ventede på noget bagage, og hvis det er min kuffert er det fint at vente lidt😅
      Pyhha 9 timer på et lille flysæde. Heldigvis var maden god - mexicaner kylling.
      Vi slap ind i landet med fingeraftryk og nogle spørgsmål om vores formål. Fandt hurtig bilen og så 17 minutter til hotellet. Vi var fremme kl. 20 tiden. Vi gik et par km og købte lidt cornflakes og juice til i morgen tidlig. Da vi bor i lejlighed.
      Nu er vi trætte og har været på farten i 24 timer😵
