there is no other place like it. i know i’ve written about asheville several times, but seriously. it is a unique and wonderful place! the mountains of NC are amazing, beautiful, peaceful, wild, and inspiring… from the rivers, to the woods, to the mountaintops, to the dirt roads, to the history, and the hidden coves yet to be discovered. it is a place to get away. to get back to nature. to enjoy the opportunity to slow down and soak up everything that is around you. the city of asheville (which is in the middle of the mountains, & about the size of norrköping = 130,000-150,000 people) is diverse, alive, colorful, entertaining, artsy. a haven for all things hippie, earthy, environmental, cultural, open-minded, eclectic. a place where you can learn, observe, grow, dance, create, and just be. i know i’m making it sound too good to be true, but i’m telling the truth. there is no place like asheville & the mountains of NC.
after the beach week with my family, lina & i headed up to the mountains to visit friends and to feel the beats of our hearts in asheville. it was a super quick, 36-hour trip, but it was amazing! i lived in the NC mountains for 11 years, part of the time in the middle of nature, part of the time in a small town, and part of the time in the middle of asheville. lina lived with me in asheville for about a year as well – i believe we will always consider it home. our hearts are there. our souls are there. and so now, i share that little corner of the world with you…
instead of writing a long, rambling post about how much i love asheville, i thought i’d simply sum up this indescribable heaven on earth found in the southeastern usa using 10 words and lots of my photos of the city. take a peek!
