Mobile, Alabama – I-10 – I-75 – Tampa, Florida – at 7847 km

by bretzelitos

This was a very uneventful day while driving – no heavy traffic, no cities to see, but a lot of nature left and right of the Interstates I-10 and I-75. Mainly we were passing through loads of forests, farms and swamps. First in Alabama and Northern Florida, the road sides were covered by loads of normal needle trees you can find in any Mediterranean forest, later aside I-75, being replaced more and more by palm trees.

We have completed this trip after 861 kilometres in which we changed the time on our watches for the last time from Central Time to Eastern Time.

In Tampa, we met our friend from California again who is here by coincidence for Business. We met him in his hotel for a nice chat for an hour, very nice! It is good to have friends like this, we know each other now for more than 16 years. 🙂

We stay once again in the Hilton Garden Inn, this time next to TPA airport.

Only a few hundred kilometres are left over in our trip – all of them in Florida, the 11th state of the USA we visited on our trip this year.

Can you name all of them? 😉
