Southern States Road Trip Q & A

The Southern region of the United States is an area completely unique unto itself, and is characterized by water, barbecue, blues music, and good old Southern hospitality.

It was the first time our savvy French travel companion, Camille Malleroni, visited the U.S., and that didn't make her any less capable. She makes a living on her travel prowess and attracts some 30,000 followers for her travel blog L'oiseau Rose. Our road trips crew immediately struck up a great dynamic and we knew we were in for an amazing road trip. We asked Camille to reflect on her first time in the USA and her dynamic road trip through the American south.

Q: What was the most unique place you visited and why?

A: The most unique place I visited was the USS Alabama battleship located in Mobile, Alabama. The boat is really huge and I had never seen anything like this before!

Q: What was the most delicious thing you ate on the trip and why was it so amazing?

A: I was impressed by the large burgers and meat portions when we ate barbecue. But what I liked most was the seafood: tuna salads, shrimp and fried calamari were really delicious!

Q: What was the most visually beautiful thing you saw on the trip and why was it so impressive?

A: The view of the Wakulla River from the helicopter [in Tallahassee, Florida]. It’s great to see beautiful landscapes from above.

Q: Tell us a funny story that happened on the road or a surprising fact that you learned.

A: I was really surprised to dance at the Bradfordville Blues Club [in Tallahassee], mostly because I thought I didn’t like blues…but ultimately, I think I love it!

Q: What do you think an international traveler would find the most interesting about your trip?

A: I think a foreign tourist should do everything! All the activities I did: Jet ski, kayaking, paddle boarding, zip line, helicopter ride. I also think that historical sites, such as the USS Alabama battleship or Elvis’ birthplace are really interesting.

Q: What advice would you give a traveler wanting to brave U.S. South?

A: To go on a road trip is one of the best ways to discover a country. I would also advise them to be careful about the season: the South can be very hot in the summer.

Q: Is there anything else you would like to add about the trip experience?

A: Thank you for this incredible experience!
