Girls on tour in Atlanta, GA

I took a trip to Atlanta the other weekend we travelled on the mega bus which was surprisingly really easy from Knoxville. Heads up though if you've ever travel on a mega bus take a blanket, when the ac's on it gets very chilly. We stayed in a (hotel motel) Holiday INN which had an with excellent view over the olympic park. There's so much to see there, we went for a tour around the CNN studio's, claim to fame Biebers mum was on HLN whilst we were there. We also ventured out of downtown to The Ebenezer Baptist Church and The Martin Luther King Jr museum it was really insightful to learn more about the civil rights movement and see photographs. Bombay Bicycle Club were playing a gig on the Saturday night which we went to it was at the coolest venue The Masquerade  which looked from outside to be what can only be described as a brick trailer on stilts. It was the first time I'd seen the band live and they were amazing. We ate in two American diners whilst we were there we had the best strawberry milkshake in Johnny Rockets. It was a lovely weekend I want to go back! A x
