The morning activity is going back to the Unitarian Church of Charleston since it will be open for tours from 11-1pm. It will be nice to […]

Trip Report: Charleston Bound

When I booked this trip – it was to provide comfort for my buddy Sean who had moved to South Carolina shortly after I visited him in Saigon. I was out here last October (if you click on Sean, it should come up) and even before I’d gotten out here then, I found another good […]
