Destination One >> St. Louis




Aaron and I are almost one week into the first portion of our trip! We should probably have more of a plan, but that's really just not how we do things... I have absolutely no idea where we are going next, and all I can tell you is that it better be warm.

We started out in Indiana for a couple of days, but I'm not really counting that, because, it was horrible, and also because it was a required stop for Aaron's new job. Therefore, our first stop will always be known as St. Louis, Missouri.

I really don't know much at all about St. Louis, and I obviously knew even less before we visited. All I wanted to see was the Gateway Arch and that is exactly where we started. Aaron always spoils me and does exactly what I want to do. Probably because he is afraid I'll start sobbing in public about missing his dad. It could be love, but its probably fear.

So, we ended up parking the Airstream in the Downtown St. Louis RV Park, which was essentially a parking lot with hook-ups. That is totally not a complaint. It was perfect, there was very little nature at all, except for my super cute potted plant.

We spent two nights in Missouri so there wasn't a lot of time to explore, but besides the arch, we also made time to go on the Anheuser-Busch Brewery Tour. The Clydesdale horses were the absolute best part, but maybe that's because I'm not into beer?

The visit was short, but I had a really fun time. Could have been the beautiful weather, could have been that I finally stopped crying about leaving home, could be a mixture of things. But, I also learned a fun fact about Missouri during our visit.

Did you know that Missouri is known as the "show me state?"


According to Aaron I am the only one in America that did not know this piece of information. But hey, I know it now!

  2. SOOOO freaking jealous of your brewery tour! That one is on my bucket list! I've been to the arch too, it's super cool. I loved the views from the top. I hope your airstreamin' trip is going well! I can't wait to get caught up on it all!

  3. I'm siding with Christine - that cheesy bread and pizza looks so, so good. Far better than the salad I just ate. Lol!
    I love your airstream. I've kinda always, secretly wanted one but aren't they hard to find? How long are you guys traveling for??

  4. I've seen the Arch, granted it was from the freeway in the car with my mom as we were driving cross country from Ohio to California to finally live with my then fiance/husband after I finished college.
    Like you, I'm also not a beer kinda gal but have also been on a brewery tour of sorts. Friends of a co-worker arranged a birthday dinner for her at a local restaurant/brewery. I ate dinner, went on the tour & bought some stuff from the gift shop for my deployed husband. But give me all that cheesy garlic bread. I am totally a carbs girl, could explain my weight gain & inability to get it off- that & my lack of motivation to do much more than sit around with the tv on & floating the internet. But bread, cheese, fried foods & various yummy carbs also don't help my situation. Hope you enjoy the rest of your airstream adventure & can't wait to see where you end up!
    Happy travels!!
