Nicky Fussell – USA Deep South (Aug 2019)

Nicky headed to Atlanta to meet up with her son and help him celebrate his 30th birthday.  Click through to her travel blog for the full story and photos. 

Having whistled through five States in nine days I can say that the Deep South is a great place to visit with its own unique culture and history, as distinct as other regions in the US. Learning about its dark past with regard to first slavery and later racism and segregation (even during the dark days of WWII) was thought provoking, particularly given the racial tensions that remain in contemporary America. These shadowy undertones were an integral part of the overall experience.
